Joshua vs Ruiz Jnr Betting Tip
June 1 2019, Madison Square Garden, New York City
It’s not the fight most people wanted but Anthony Joshua’s next bout will be against the Mexican fighter Andy Ruiz Jr. Joshua has had an eight-month break from the ring and was due to come up against Jarrell Miller. The American’s failed drug test in April 2019 but an end to that, to the disappointment of many.
It would have been an interesting clash. This is due to be Joshua’s first fight on American soil and the undefeated Miller would’ve tested him. But that was not to be and instead, Ruiz Jr. will take on Joshua who is looking to make it 23-0.
As mentioned, this is Joshua’s first fight outside of the United Kingdom. Fans will be hoping that Joshua uses it as some form of dress rehearsal for bigger bouts to come. Everyone wants to see AJ take on at least one of Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder. Either one of those Heavyweight unification bouts would surely take place in the US with Las Vegas a likely destination. But Joshua has to get past Ruiz Jr. first. The majority of fans and pundits are expecting him to do just that on 1 June.
Joshua vs Ruiz Jr. betting tip: It’s hard to look past Anthony Joshua for this clash. He is the massive favourite at 1.04 with Ruiz Jr. out at 11.0. Joshua is 1.25 to win by KO or TKO which certainly seems the likeliest outcome.
Warrington vs Galahad Betting Tip
June 15 2019, First Direct Arena, Leeds
Josh Warrington is back in Leeds for an IBF Featherweight fight. This time, the mandatory challenger Kid Galahad is his opponent in a match which may not draw as many eyes as his previous one. Six months ago, Warrington was taking on Carl Frampton for the Featherweight Championship. The all-English clash was a memorable one. But Warrington continued his undefeated professional record. 22 of Warrington’s 28 careers wins have been via decision. He wouldn’t mind making that 23 in June but he isn’t the only one in that respect.
The lesser-known Kid Galahad will also enter the ring with an unbeaten record. Born in Qatar, Galahad moved to England as a child and started training soon after. He’s built a local reputation in the Sheffield area and earned his place in the ring after beating American Toka Kahn Clary in October 2018.
Both men will view the fight as a stepping stone to bigger and better things. A good performance from Galahad will put him in contention with the best featherweight fighters in the UK. Warrington has his eye on the rest of the world. At least one 100% record will have to make way in Leeds in June.
Warrington vs Galahad betting tip: Josh Warrington is the clear favourite for this clash. The 28-year-old is on home soil and will want to follow up on his victory over Carl Frampton last year. He’s 1.33 to do just that but his opponent Kid Galahad cannot be written off at 3.40.
Fury vs Wilder II Betting Tip
Not every boxing match deserves a rematch but this one certainly does. In an unforgettable heavyweight showdown, Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder went 12 rounds in Los Angeles last year. Fury took an early advantage but that looked wasted when Wilder floored him in the twelfth. The Gypsy King’s incredible comeback brought him back to his feet and the result was a draw.
Most thought that Fury deserved the victory on points while Wilder was left frustrated not to secure the KO. That laid the groundwork for what should be an inevitable rematch. Fury has challenged his opponent to fight in the United Kingdom but the 30-year-old may be busy in the States. It’s clear that Fury’s promoter has a plan but he must first get past Tom Schwarz.
“Providing he comes through his fight, then we’d like to get him out again in the autumn,” said Frank Warren.
“Then set up a big fight [against Wilder] for either late in the year or more likely early new year.”
Wilder, to his credit, seems as keen on a rematch as his opponent does. He will take on Dominic Breazeale in New York in May but after that, it’s anyone’s guess. We all want to see this rematch take place and that seems to include both fighters.
Wilder vs Fury II betting tip: Fury is the current favourite for this rematch should it ever take place. He is odds-on at 1.67 with Deontay Wilder out at 2.25. A draw would leave everyone just as frustrated as last time but could be worth a punt at 21.0.
Fury vs Schwarz Betting Tip
June 15 2019, MGM Grand Gardens Arena, Paradise
Tyson Fury is no stranger to controversy but his last bout was impressive even by his standards. The Gypsy King’s split decision against Deontay Wilder was the first draw of his career. Fury’s miraculous comeback left both fighters frustrated with the result and keen to go again.
Bur first, Fury will make his Las Vegas debut. The 30-year-old is set to take on the German Tom Schwarz at the MGM Grand Arena Gardens.
“I made a promise to myself when I was younger I wouldn’t go to Vegas until I fought there,” Fury said of the clash.
“Thirty years later I get the opportunity to fight on the biggest platform in the world.”
It’s a big step for Tyson Fury but he will have to be at his best to overcome his opponent. The world number 2 is Schwarz eager to impress on this, the biggest stage of his career. The WBO Inter-Continental Heavyweight Champion has never fought outside of Europe before. But he has impressed with his 6ft 5in frame and will enter the ring with a hunger to put on a show.
But few are expecting anything other than a comfortable win for Tyson Fury. The 30-year-old is the major favourite to mark his Las Vegas debut with a win. It should act as a stepping stone for him to move on to what many fans want: a fight against Deontay Wilder or Anthony Joshua.
Tyson Fury vs Tom Schwarz betting tip: Tyson Fury is the enormous favourite for this clash at 1.03. The bookies certainly don’t fancy the German Tom Schwarz out at 13.0.
