Boxing Events

  • When: Saturday, Nov. 26

Ricards Bolotniks +427 vs. Craig Richards -833

  • London – DAZN

Ricards “The Lion” Bolotniks is 19-6-1 with 8 knockout wins. Bolotniks last fought on April 1, beating then 11-0 Hrvoje Sep via unanimous decision in an 8-round bout. 

Craig “Spider” Richards is 17-3-1. Richards has some power. He’s knocked out 10 of his opponents. Not only that, but Richards has fought some of the best in the light heavyweight division, including losing to Dmitrii Bivol in 2021 via unanimous decision.

4 of Bolotniks 6 losses have come via stoppage. Find a prop or go under because Richards should end the underdog’s night early.   

Boxing Pick: Craig Richards 

Nathan Gorman +190 vs. Fabio Wardley -277

  • London – DAZN

19-1 Nathan Gorman wins many of his fights via knockout or technical knockout. 13 of Gorman’s opponents have lost before the final bell. 

But although Gorman has fought well, he could be in some trouble on Saturday. Fabio Wardley has a 14-0 record. Wardley has knocked out 13 of his opponents. 

Then again, Gorman, no doubt, has fought and beaten the higher level of competition. If the odds difference was closer than it is, Fabio might be the play. But at +190, backing the dog makes sense. 

Boxing Pick: Nathan Gorman  

John Ryder +185 vs. Zach Parker -270 | WBO Interim Super Middleweight Title 

  • London – ESPN+

Underdog John Ryder boasts a nice 31-5 record with 17 knockout wins. Ryder has suffered a single stoppage loss. 

Since losing to Callum Smith in 2019, Ryder has run off 3 straight wins, including beating well-regarded Daniel Jacobs via split-decision in a February bout. 

Zach Parker enters this match with a fantastic 22-0 record. Parker has 16 knockout wins on the resume. Parker is younger than Ryder by 6 years. Ryder won’t be easy to beat, but Parker’s youth edge and the fact he has equal to, if not more, power than Ryder makes the chalk the play. 

Boxing Pick: Zach Parker  

Evelin Nazarena Bermudez +136 vs Yokasta Valle -192

  • Carson, California – PPV

This bout is for the IBF and WBO World Light Flyweight titles. Evelin Bermudez has a 17-0-1 record. Bermudez has won 6 of her bouts via stoppage.

Valle’s record is more impressive at 26-2. The Costa Rican resident has won 9 of her bouts via stoppage. Bermudez will put up a great fight but Valle should be too experienced and skilled to lose. Give the chalk the nod. 

Boxing Pick: Yokasta Valle 

Regis Prograis -454 vs. Jose Zepeda +284 | WBC Super Lightweight Title  

Jose Zepeda is no slouch. The underdog in this has a terrific 35-2 record with 27 knockout wins. 

Zepeda has suffered a single stoppage loss and is on a 5-bout winning streak. During the streak, Jose has beaten some tough pugilists like Jose Pedraza, Henry Lundy, and Josue Vargas in a technical knockout win in his last.

Regis Prograis lost to Josh Taylor in 2019. Since then, he’s won 3 straight via technical knockout. Both boxers have stepped it up against top competition. The difference in regards to this bout is in the odds.

Prograis shouldn’t be such a big favorite. The odds on Zepeda make Jose an overlay. 

Boxing Pick: Jose Zepeda
