Boxing Events

  • When: Saturday, Oct. 8

Chris Eubank Jr. -238 vs Conor Benn +161 | London – DAZN 

Eubank Jr. hasn’t lost since a 2014 bout versus Billy Joe Saunders. Since then, he’s won 15 straight, which is the reason he’s the favorite in this.

But on Saturday, Eubank Jr. battles a tough customer in Conor Benn. The underdog in this bout has an excellent 21-0 record. Not only that, but Benn has knocked out 14 of his opponents. Also, Benn is younger than Eubank Jr. by seven years. 

No doubt, Chris can win this fight but Benn is the play to hand Eubank Jr. his first loss in the last eight years. 

Boxing Pick: Conor Benn  

Egidijus Kavaliauskas -476 vs Mykal Fox +278 | Carson, California – Showtime 

Favorite Egidijus Kavaliauskas has an excellent 22-2-1 record with 18 knockout wins. Kavaliauskas has lost 2 of his last 3 bouts. 

We shouldn’t hold the losses against Kavaliauskas. The first happened versus pound-for-pound king Terence Crawford. The second occurred in a bout against then 17-0 Vergel Ortiz Jr. 

Mykal Fox is 22-3. Fox has lost his last couple of bouts versus opponents that wouldn’t have much shot against Egidijus. Not only that, but Mykal has almost zero power because he’s won just 3 bouts via KO or TKO. Kavaliauskas wins.  

Boxing Pick: Egidijus Kavaliauskas 

Fernando Daniel Martinez -322 vs Jerwin Ancajas +203 | IBF Junior Middleweight Title

Fernando Daniel Martinez and Jerwin Ancajas threw down on February 26. Ancajas and Martinez battled for 12 rounds. 

At the end of the fight, Martinez had done enough for a unanimous decision. No doubt, the 14-0 Martinez is an excellent boxer. But Ancajas has the experience to get it done on Saturday. 

Ancajas is 33-2-2 with 22 KO or TKO wins. Jerwin exacts his revenge. 

Boxing Pick: Jerwin Ancajas  

Carlos Adames -666 vs Juan Macias Montiel +347 | WBC Interim Middleweight Title

Juan Macias Montiel has a great 23-5-2 record. All 23 Montiel victories have arrived via knockout or technical knockout. 

The underdog in this has power for sure. But Montiel’s last fight shouldn’t provide confidence he can hang with Adames.

Montiel beat Christian Soto Valverde via second-round knockout last December. The bout happened in Mexico and Valverde stepped into the ring with a 14-11 record.

Carlos Adames is 21-1 with 16 knockout wins. Since a 2019 loss, Adames has won 3 straight. The chalk takes this. 

Boxing Pick: Carlos Adames 

Sebastian Fundora -1000 vs Carlos Ocampo +460 | WBC Interim Junior Middleweight Title

Carlos Ocampo is 34-1 with 22 knockout or technical knockout wins. Ocampo hasn’t lost since Errol Spence Jr. beat him via first round knockout in 2018.

Sebastian Fundora is undefeated with a 19-0-1 record. Fundora has knocked out 13 of his opponents. Based on level of competition, Fundora should win this.

The chalk bested then 33-0 Sergio Garcia via unanimous decision last December. Then in April, Fundora ended Erickson Lubin’s night in the ninth.

But although Fundora should win, Ocampo is worth backing. He has more experience and the loss happened against one of the world’s pound-for-pound best. Carlos Ocampo gets the nod. 

Boxing Pick: Carlos Ocampo
