Boxing Betting Tips Ahead Of Three Major Cards In Three Countries Taking Place This Weekend
With three big shows across 3 countries over this weekend I’ve picked out some value bets and one outside shot for you to look at this weekend
Firstly we head to the DAZN show in Liverpool on Saturday night. My pick for this event is Pacheco vs Cullen UNDER 5.5 ROUNDS at 8/11. Outstanding prospect Diego Pacheco will look to extend his unbeaten run, and I believe he will do so early against Jack Cullen, who was stopped in his last meaningful contest against Kevin Sadjo in 6.
Moving over to France. The Sky Sports show has two fights I see value in. The first being Dan Azeez’s EBU Title Challenge against Thomas Faure. Azeez is coming into this one in good form, scoring a stoppage win over former WBA Super Middleweight Champion Rocky Fielding in December. With his come-forward, aggressive, and high-volume style, I believe Azeez will again get a stoppage victory. Probably coming in the second half of the bout as Faure has only been stopped once, and that was in the 7th round. Dan Azeez in rounds 7-12 at 13/10 is my best bet of the weekend.
I have an outside pick in the main event in Paris, as heavyweights Tony Yoka and Carlos Takam face off. Yoka who is coming off a one-sided beating against Martin Bakole, hasn’t really impressed in his professional career. Being very disappointing in many bouts, and ultimately soundly beaten at home by heavy underdog Bakolie. Carlos Takam has lost his last two. However, if you dig a little deeper into these fights, he was doing extremely well against Joe Joyce before a premature stoppage, and was the first man to take Russian Arselanbek Makhmudov the distance. Therefore I believe Carlos Takam to win at 4/1 is fantastic value.
Heading down under now to PBCs offering for this weekend. Australian Tim Tszyu will look for a breakout performance against former champion Tony Harrison. Harrison has a tendency to start fast in bouts. Looking very good early, however he slows down a lot. Tszyu has shown he carries his power late throughout his career and I believe Tim Tszyu to win in rounds 7-12 is great value at 11/4.
- Pacheco Cullen under 5.5 rounds 8/11
- Dan Azeez rounds 7-12 13/10
- Carlos Takam to win 4/1
- Tim Tszyu rounds 7-12 11/4
