Beterbiev Defends His Three Belts Versus Yarde for Saturday’s Top Bout | Boxing Betting Analysis
Boxing Events: Saturday, Feb. 4
John Bauza +544 vs. Richardson Hitchens -1250
At first glance, it’s difficult to understand why the underdog is at +544. John Bauza is 17-0 with 7 knockout wins. So it’s obvious that Bauza has a lot of skill.
A deeper dive into the fight, though, reveals that Richardson Hitchens is one of the top and up and coming boxers on the planet. Hitchens is 15-0 with 7 knockout wins. Richardson has won his last 2 bouts via technical knockout and referee technical decision.
So there is a good chance Hitchens wins this via KO or TKO.
Boxing Pick: Richardson Hitchens | Bet Boxing Match Today
Avril Mathie Over 8.5 -370 vs. Ramla Said Ahmed Under 8.5 +240
Avril Mathie is 8-0 with 3 knockout wins and a draw. Ramla Said Ahmed is 7-0 with 2 knockout wins.
Betting this straight up is difficult because Ahmed, she also goes by Ramla Ali, should have no trouble winning this bout. Stopping Mathie before the final bell should be difficult, though. Going over the rounds total makes sense.
Boxing Pick: Over 8.5 | Bet Boxing Match Today
Tania Alvarez +843 vs. Skye Nicolson -3333
Spanish boxer Tania Alvarez is 7-0 with a stoppage victory. Alvarez has enough skills to elongate this fight.
But Skye Nicolson is 5-0. Nicolson hasn’t stopped a fighter before the final bell in any of her bouts. Skye wins for sure. This fight takes place at Madison Square Garden. So there is the possibility Nicolson grabs her first technical knockout or knockout win. Look for a KO prop and see if it’s worth backing Skye to get her first.
Boxing Pick: Skye Nicolson | Bet Boxing Match Today
Elhem Mekhaled +513 vs. Alycia Baumgardner -1111
15-1 with 3 knockout wins, Elhem Mekhaled heads into this bout off a loss, which might explain why she’s such a big underdog, but the underdog in this faced Delfine Persoon in her last.
Persoon is 43-6, which means Mekhaled faced an incredibly experienced boxer. Still, Alycia Baumgardner heads into this after beating then 17-0 Mikaela Mayer.
Baumgardner is one of the highest-ranked women pugilists in the world. Alycia is 11-1 with 7 stoppage victories. Baumgardner is the play. Think over the total and look for a decision prop if you don’t want to back Alycia at the odds because Mekhaled has a good chin.
Boxing Pick: Alycia Baumgardner | Bet Boxing Match Today
Ericka Cruz Hernandez +428 vs. Amanda Serrano -833
Most agree that Amanda Serrano is one of the sport’s top active boxers. Serrano heads into this bout against Ericka Cruz Hernandez off a nice victory against Sarah Mahfoud in her last.
But although Serrano goes into this off a victory, she’s in tough. The problem for Serrano is that Hernandez is more on Katie Taylor’s level than Mahfoud’s. The odds make Amanda an underlay. Backing Hernandez to pull off the upset makes sense.
Boxing Pick: Ericka Cruz Hernandez | Bet Boxing Match Today
