Garcia vs Porter Betting Tip
September 8 2018, Barclays Centre, New York
It will be an all-American clash in the Barclays Centre in New York on 8 September. Danny Garcia is taking on Shawn Porter with the vacant WBC Welterweight title on the line.
For Garcia, there is more than a hint of familiarity. The 30-year-old is already a two-division world champion, and held the WBC Welterweight belt before his defeat to Keith Thurman back in March 2017. Thurman has since vacated the title which has afforded Garcia the chance to swoop back in and reclaim it.
But it won’t be easy for him. Shawn Porter has made the Barclays Centre his home in recent years, winning his last two fights in the New York arena. Porter is 28-2-1 in an impressive career which has seen him hold the IBF Welterweight belt. But in reality, it should be Garcia’s fight to lose. At 30 years old, Swift is in the prime of his career and has won 34 of his 35 professional bouts prior to this one. He will enter the Barclay’s Centre – the same place where he lost his only professional fight – with a point to prove and the aim of regaining the title which he lost just 18 months ago.
Garcia vs Porter Betting Tip: Danny Garcia is the favourite for this one with best-priced odds of 1.73.
Alverez vs Golovkin II Betting Tip
September 15 2018, T-Mobile Arena, Paradise
The appetite for this fight has been building from the moment their first bout concluded. In one of the most controversial fights in recent boxing history, Canelo and GGG started their rivalry in September 2017.
In what was an excellent match, few doubted that the judges’ result would be anything other than a win for Gennady Golovkin. Aside from the last couple of rounds, GGG had been comfortable throughout so there was more than a little surprise when the judges announced a draw.
A rematch was hastily scheduled but that bout has proven to be just as controversial as the original. In March 2018, Canelo Alvarez tested positive for a banned substance with rumours of a one-year suspension incoming. A few weeks later, Canelo officially pulled out of the bout just one month before the scheduled 5 May date.
Canelo’s suspension turned out to be just 6 months and it was announced in June that the rematch has been given the green light to go ahead on 15 September, less than a month after Alvarez’s suspension ended.
It will be a fascinating box office clash between these two rivals which will surely live up to the original bout. Hopefully, this time it will be settled once and for all, and not end in unnecessary controversy like it did last year.
Alvarez vs Golovkin Betting Tip: Golovkin is the 1.65 favourite for this clash but a draw is a tempting 26.0 after what happened in the first fight.
Khan vs Vargas Betting Tip
September 8 2018, Arena Birmingham, Birmingham
Amir Khan returns to ring for just the second time in two years as he prepares to take on Samuel Vargas in Birmingham. Khan will be hoping for a similar result to his last bout against Phil Lo Greco when took just 39 seconds to knock his opponent out in what was his first fight of 2018.
Now, Khan is hoping to use this upcoming bout against Vargas as a stepping stone to get back to the top of boxing. The Bolton fighter previously hinted at a prize fight with Manny Pacquiao and is seemingly still keen on the idea.
"I belong in the biggest events in the UK. I am a prizefighter but it goes beyond that,” Khan said.
"A Manny Pacquiao fight would be massive, anywhere in the world. He is a good fighter, a slick fighter, he's a huge name in boxing and I am sure if he came to the UK, the UK fans would want to come and see him."
That’s certainly true but Khan will have to get past Vargas first but for the Colombian fighter, it’s a step into the unknown. He is taking part in his first professional fight in Europe and brings with him a record of 29-3-2. Vargas will be hoping that he can adapt in Birmingham but he must be keen on taking Khan’s place in the ring in any potential bout with Pacquiao.
Khan vs Vargas Betting Tip: Khan is the massive odds-on favourite for this fight with the best-priced odds at just 1.07.
Joshua vs Fury Betting Tip
This fight hasn’t even been announced yet but there is still a quite incredible amount of excitement surrounding it. Anthony Joshua taking on Tyson Fury would be one of the biggest events in boxing and could be a unification bout if things go right for both fighters.
But before any of that can happen, both have other fights to get through first. Anthony Joshua will defend his WBA (Super), IBF, WBO, and IBO heavyweight titles when he takes to the ring with Alexander Povetkin in Wembley Stadium in September.
For Fury, he has organised conditional deals for a fight against the man who many people wanted Anthony Joshua to fight next, Deontay Wilder. Straight after Fury’s victory over the Italian fighter, Francesco Pianeta promoter Frank Warren announced that The Gypsy King will be taking on Wilder in either November or December 2018.
Should Fury win that fight it would unify the lineal and WBC heavyweight championship titles, allowing the winner a chance at a grand unification bout in a fight against Joshua – should he defeat Povetkin, of course.
Whether that will be Wilder or Fury, it remains to be seen but that would only add to what would be a quite incredible spectacle. The thought of the two British undefeated heavyweights heading into the ring for a grand unification bout is the most exciting prospect in boxing for a lot of fans today.
Joshua vs Fury Betting Tip: Joshua is the slight favourite for this potential heavyweight bout at 1.80.
MMA McGregor vs Khabib Betting Tip
October 6 2018, T Mobile Arena, Paradise
Conor McGregor is set to make his long-awaited return to The Octagon at UFC 229 where he will take on Khabib Nurmagomedov in Las Vegas. The Irish fighter will obviously be the big-name attraction but Khabib will be looking to defend his UFC Lightweight Championship against The Notorious.
There is an element of the unknown for Conor McGregor. The last time the Irish fighter set foot in a ring, it was for his spectacle boxing bout with Floyd Mayweather Jr. It has been almost two years since The Notorious fought in The Octagon so there may well be some rustiness for McGregor to shake off.
“I think this will be the biggest fight we’ve ever done,” said UFC chief Dana White.
“Fans love fighters who are real fighters and who want to fight everybody and fight the best. That’s been Conor McGregor since the day he set foot in this company.”
“He actually told me at one point that he’d fight Khabib in Russia. That’s just the way he is. He fears no one. He’ll fight anyone, anywhere, any place.”
But for McGregor, this will be no welcome return to the UFC. He is coming up against Khabib Nurmagomedov, the Russian fighter who is yet to lose a single fight in professional MMA. The man nicknamed The Eagle will provide stiff competition for the returning McGregor in what will be a fascinating contest.
McGregor vs Khabib Betting Tip: Khabib is the favourite to deny McGregor a triumphant return to The Octagon with best-priced odds of 1.67. If you fancy The Notorious is out at 2.57 to come back swinging with a win.
