5 Great Boxing Fights to Watch and Bet On this Weekend

Liam Taylor -144 vs Tyrone McKenna +104

  • Belfast, Northern Ireland – ESPN+

McKenna and Taylor should be one of Dec. 10’s most competitive bouts. Both have excellent records. McKenna’s is 23-3-1 with 6 knockout wins.

Taylor’s is 25-2-1 with 12 knockout victories. Liam is the slight favorite because he’s won 2 straight but McKenna won his last bout and his last loss came against one of the better fighters in the division, maybe the best in the division, Regis Prograis. Backing McKenna makes sense. 

Boxing Pick: Tyrone McKenna 

Michael Conlan -3333 vs Karim Guerfi +807

  • Belfast, Northern Ireland – ESPN+

Conlan should win this bout. So the key is to create a parlay that pays something much better than -3333.

The big question is whether or not Conlan can knockout Guerfi before the 7.5 rounds total. The answer to the question is yes. Guerfi has suffered 6 losses. 4 of the 6 losses came via stoppage. A parlay on Conlan and under 7.5 rounds will pay much better than backing Michael on the moneyline. 

Boxing Pick: Parlay – Conlan & Under 7.5 

Josh Warrington -135 vs Luis Alberto Lopez -102 | IBF Featherweight World Title

  • Leeds, England – DAZN

If this fight wasn’t taking place in Leeds, Warrington might not be the slight chalk. Josh is a good fighter, but he’s up against a tough dude on Saturday. 

Luis Alberto Lopez is 26-2 and has 15 stoppage victories. Warrington has just 3 stoppage wins. So if this fight were anywhere else, Lopez would probably be the chalk. 

Boxing Pick: Luis Alberto Lopez

David Avanesyan +682 vs Terence Crawford -2000

  • Omaha, Nebraska – ESPN PPV

Like the Conlan fight, it makes sense to play a parlay when Bud Crawford takes on David Avanesyan on Saturday. Also like the Conlan fight, Crawford versus Avanesyan shows a 7.5 rounds total.

Will Terence end the underdog’s night before the eighth round? Crawford has knocked out or forced a technical knockout in 29 of his 38 victories. David Avanesyan has suffered only 1 stoppage loss, though.

The loss happened in the sixth-round in a bout against Egidijus Kavaliauskas back in 2019. Avanesyan is a tough dude. Bud won’t put himself in danger. So we should expect a unanimous decision victory, which means the best play is a parlay on Terence winning via decision.

Boxing Pick: Parlay – Crawford & Over 7.5 rounds  

Teofimo Lopez -666 vs Sandor Martin +379

  • New York, NY – ESPN+

Since the upset loss versus George Kambosos, Teofimo Lopez beat Pedro Campa. The victory showcased how good of a boxer Lopez can be when he’s focused. But the win shouldn’t lead boxing handicappers to believe Teofimo will have an easy time versus Sandor Martin.

The underdog in this fight’s tall, meaning he uses his jab well. Not only that, Sandor proved versus Mikey Garcia that he can time when a boxer is moving in and throwing punches. Also, Teofimo still fights with his hands too low. The dog has a shot.  

Boxing Pick: Sandor Martin
