Saturday, July 17th Bouts
- Krzysztof Wlodarczyk -1800 / Vadym Novopashyn +800
With a record of 58-4-1, there’s little doubt Wlodarczyk should dominate 6-2 Vadym Novopashyn. The underdog is an okay fighter. The problem? As he’s fought better opponents, his form has deteriorated. Novopashyn has lost 2 of his last 3 bouts. Wlodarczyk will win. If you can find round options, go for one of those instead of laying the moneyline.
Boxing Pick: Krzysztof Wlodarczyk
- Maksym Miszczenko +350 / Marek Matyja -500
Matyja has an experience edge. He’s got a 19-2-2 record compared to Miszczenko’s 7-1 record. The favorite has 8 technical knockout or knockout wins from his 19 victories. Miszczenko is on a 4-match winning streak. Although he doesn’t have a ton of victories via KO or TKO, 3-of-7, he does have boxing skills that should help him in this bout. Give the underdog a shot.
Boxing Pick: Maksym Miszczenko
- Bakhram Murtazaliev -3000 / Khiary Gray +1100
28-year-old Bakhram Murtazaliev has won 14 of his 18 bouts via TKO or KO. The super welterweight beat his last opponent, Manny Woods, via technical knockout in Round 4 of a scheduled 10-round bout. Khiary Gray has an okay 16-5 record. Gray hasn’t fought since 2019, though. He’s also lost 4-of-6. Look for round props and chose the round you believe in which Murtazaliev ends Gray’s night.
Boxing Pick: Bakhram Murtazaliev
- Amilcar Vidal -400 / Immanuwel Aleem +300
Vidal has a fantastic 12-0 record. 11 of Vidal’s wins have come via technical knockout or straight knockout. The favorite’s opponent is not without a shot, but Aleem must step it up big time to have any chance versus the chalk. Aleem hasn’t fought since 2019. When he did, he fell to Ronald Ellis. This should be a decent fight with Vidal pulling off a late round TKO or KO victory.
Boxing Pick: Amilcar Vidal
- Anthony Yigit +325 / Rolando Romero -350
The last time Swedish boxer Anthony Yigit fought in the U.S., it didn’t end well. Yigit went up against then 18-0 Ivan Baranchyk. The ref ended the bout in the seventh round. Since then, Yigit has won 3 straight. Rolando Romero figures to end Yigit’s winning streak. Romero is 12-0 with 11 TKO or KO victories. The 25-year-old will get to Yigit before the 12 rounds are up.
Boxing Pick: Rolando Romero
- Brian Castano +240 / Jermell Charlo -300
34-1 Charlo has a big reach advantage over Brian Castano. Charlo’s reach is 73” while Castano’s is 64 ½”. Charlo looked great when beating Jeison Rosario in his last. But Castano is 17-0-1 with a draw. Also, look who the draw came against? Most feel Erislandy Lara is one of the best boxers on the planet. Castano got to Lara. He can get to Charlo. Give the underdog a big chance.
Boxing Pick: Brian Castano
