Bellew vs Haye Betting Tip
May 5 2018, O2 Arena, London
It’s Bellew v Haye II. Almost fourteen full months after their original bout, the pair will face off once again with David Haye eager for revenge. Boxing fans will just be hoping for a clash between two fully fit boxers after all that has happened in the last year.
Bellew v Haye I was cut short after the latter picked up an Achilles injury in the ring while this rematch was rearranged after Haye picked up a bicep injury last November. Neither boxer has fought since that first match so there are more than a few unknowns as we approach fight night.
Tony Bellew has a big 2018 in mind. The Liverpool-born boxer has said that he would like to ‘retire David Haye’ before turning his attentions to another English fighter, Tyson Fury later this year. But if this is a big fight for Bellew then it is an even bigger one for Haye.
“Unquestionably, I step into the ring on Saturday May 5, with both my career and legacy on the line,” Haye said in an interview last year. With growing speculation that the former WBA Heavyweight Champion will retire in 2018, this match could well be amongst the most important of Haye’s long career.
Bellew vs Haye Betting Tip: The bookmakers have Haye the firm favourite with prices around the 1.47 mark while Bellew can be taken at odds of 2.80.
Golovkin vs Alverez Betting Tip
There may not be a date for this fight but there is certainly an appetite for it. In one of the most controversial nights in recent boxing history, Canelo and GGG started their rivalry in September of last year.
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 this fight is proving to be just as controversial as the original. In March of this year, 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.
GGG is still keen to fight on the scheduled date but will have to wait for his rematch with Alvarez. If the Mexican fighter is cleared of these charges then surely it will only be a matter of time until we see the second edition of this rivalry. Whenever it does happen, it will surely be just as fascinating as the first.
Selby vs Warrington Betting Tip
May 19 2018, Elland Road, Leeds
Ask almost any British boxing fan and they’ll agree that this is one of the most anticipated fights of 2018. A rivalry several years in the making will finally make its way into the ring as Lee Selby and Josh Warrington face off on 19 May.
Lee Selby will face a tough test on the fifth defence of his IBF featherweight belt. He won the title back in 2015 with a win over Evgeny Gradovich at the O2 Arena but now he has to travel to unfamiliar ground. On 19 May he will go to Elland Road, the home of Leeds United and Josh Warrington to defend the belt.
Warrington himself would prove a tough opponent anywhere. The Leeds-born fighter is 26-0 after defeating Dennis Ceylan late last year to become Selby’s latest mandatory challenger. “Let's see what Josh is made of,” Selby said in a recent interview.
“If he opts to box on the back foot I definitely can't see him out-boxing me. In fact, there's no way I can see him beating me.”
Well, that about settles it then. However, if Selby’s predictions prove incorrect then there will be no place to hide for the Welsh fighter. There will be as many as 38,000 people in Elland Road on 19 May and a fair few will be supporting his opponent.
Jack vs Stevenson Betting Tip
May 19 2018, Bell Centre, Montreal
Adonis Stevenson will defend his WBC and lineal light-heavyweight titles on home soil against Badou Jack in what will be a fight full of intrigue.
It’s a huge test for Jack who defeated Nathan Cleverly in Las Vegas last year to set up this unification bout. The Swedish fighter enters this fight with just one defeat and 13 knockout victories in his 25 professional matches.
But The Ripper will probably come up against his toughest opponent yet when he takes on Adonis Stevenson. The man they call Superman has an incredible 29-1 record which includes 25 knockouts.
“He puts on exciting fights when he fights,” Jack recently said of his future opponent. “I like that - but his era is over, it's my time now.”
Jack may be confident but his opponent will take assurance from the location of the bout. Stevenson versus Jack will take place in the Bell Centre in Quebec, an arena which has housed 9 of Stevenson’s last 14 fights. Needless to say, he has won every single one of them as part of an overall win streak which stretches back 2010. We’ll see if he will make that 10 wins in 15 fights on 19 May.
Jack vs Stevenson Betting Tip: Bookmakers have Jack as the favourite with odds currently around the 1.63 mark, while Steveson is available at odds of 2.40.
Usyk vs Gassiev Betting Tip
May 11 2018, Jeddah
It is new ground for everyone involved. The World Boxing Super Series is in its maiden season and with grand prizes in excess of $10 million, the two weight divisions are heavily contested. George Groves versus Callum Smith will be an interesting affair at super middleweight but it’s impossible to ignore Murat Gassiev versus Oleksandr Usyk.
The cruiserweight final will see two fighters with unbeaten records come up against one another for millions of dollars and half a dozen titles on the line. Murat Gassiev enters with 26 wins and one no-contest from his 27 fights and as the reigning WBA and IBF cruiserweight champion. The man nicknamed Iron has had an impressive career for someone so young. At just 24 years old, Gassiev dished out the first defeat of Yunier Dorticos’ career in order to get a place in this fight.
But his opponent must not be underestimated. Oleksandr Usyk has been one of the most prominent figures in cruiserweight boxing for some time and enters this bout with 11 knockouts from his 14-0 record. Something has got to give in this fight between these two unbeaten fighters from Ukraine and Russia. This prize fight is certainly one to keep an eye out for and takes place in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia on 11 May.
Usyk vs Gassiev Betting Tip: Bookmakers have Usyk listed as favourite with prices currently around the 1.48 mark with Gassiev available at around 2.80
