Saturday 19th May - Lee Selby v Josh Warrington

Lee Selby (26-1 , 9 KOs) defends his IBF world featherweight title against mandatory challenger Josh Warrington (26-0 , 6 KOs) , I'm a big fan of Selbys to be honest , hes a very good boxer with a good technical brain , hes not flashy andhe doesnt knock many people out but he knows what hes doing , hes patient , pressures his opponents into making mistakes and does enough to win the bout, which is probably why he has been called the Welsh Mayweather ! Warrington beat the decent Dennis Ceylan last time , but for me , this is a big step up for the challenger , hes never faced an opponent of Selbys class and ability. Warrington is the more aggressive fighter of the pair and has fast hands and has a decent solid defense and if he can dictate the pace of the fight then he could rattle Selby , but for that to happen Selby would have to be off his game and i just cant see that happening to be honest. Warringtons also fighting in his home town which could be a big help , but i cant see that phasing someone like Selby , for me Selby retains his belt.
Selection - Lee Selby :(
Bet - Lee Selby to win on points :(

Saturday 14th April = Terry Flanagan v Maurice Hooker

Terry Flanagan (33-0 , 13 KOs) meets Maurice Hooker (23-0-3 , 16 KOs) for the WBO juniour welterweight title , and this could be a decent fight to watch as neither will want to give up their unbeaten status easily. Flanagans definately one of the best homegrown boxers imo , hes a busy fighter with a high rate , throws rapid punches with very fast hands and has a good boxing brain on him and knows how to use the ring well. Hooker has a great jab and quick hands , which allows him to counter very well , however he;s not an offensive type of fighter which will probably play to Flanagans strengths , i cant see Hooker coping with Flanagans aggressive style of im honest and im not sure that he'll stand up to the amount of punches and combinations that Flanagans going to throw at him.
Selection - Terry Flanagan :(
Bet - Terry Flanagan by stoppage :(

Saturday 14th April - Terence Crawford v Jeff Horn

Terence Crawford (32-0 , 23 KOs) meets Jeff Horn (18-0-1 , 12 KOs) in a mouthwatering clash for the WBO welterweight belt and one of them is going to lose their unbeaten record , should be an interesting and entertaining fight , and one that Horn needs to win if he's to silence his critics , Horn has been in the boxing publics gaze since his controversial win over Manny Pacquiao , where to be honest he was simply outboxed for most of the fight , however he looked good against Gary Corcoran but still has to prove he can do it against top class opposition and they dont come any more top class than Terence Crawford. Crawford for me has to be in the top 5 pound for pound fighters in the world , he seems to have it all , ringcraft , power , a good chin , good footwork / movement , good combinations and a good boxing brain ... Horn is a tough and durable fighter and is an effective counter puncher but i am yet to be convinced that he is truly top class , very good , yes , but top class , undecided ! And he has never encountered anyone as talented as Crawford , and as good as he is , i cant see him being able to handle Crawford.
Selection - Terence Crawford :thumbs
Bet - Fight not to go the distance :thumbs

Saturday 9th June - Leo Santa Cruz v Abner Mares

Cruz (34-1-1 , 19 KOs) defends his WBA (super) featherweight title against Mares (31-2-1 , 15 KOs) and is another fight that i am looking forward to watching. Mares will be looking to gain his revenge on Santa Cruz after Santa Cruz' decision win ove rhim back in 2015 but i can't see it happening if i'm being honest. I rate Santa Cruz highly , his only defeat came against Carl Frampton , which he then avenged next time out , regaining his WBA belt in the process and since then he's successfully defended his title against Chris Avalos who he stopped in the 8th round. Santa Cruz has a pair of the fastest hands ive ever seen and his work rate is phenomonal , he's aggressive and throws punches by the shed load , which means if the fight goes to the cards the judges will usually favour him , as he's out worked and out punched his opponent. Although primarily known as an offensive fighter he isnt lacking in defensive qualities either he slips punches and moves his head and body well , and i think people dont give him the credit he deserves really , as hes really a good solid all round boxer. Mares is very similiar in style to Santa Cruz , he's a busy fighter , continually throwing combinations , particularly to the body , but for me he isnt quite as good as Santa Cruz. As i said i am really looking forward to this bout as their last encounter was a proper battle , and as i also said i cant see Mares reversing that last time decision either , for me Santa Cruz is the better boxer , and has size , power , height and reach advantages , all of which will prove to be key points imho. It wont be a pushover by any means as like i say Mares is no slouch and i envisage a proper war but i can only really see one outcome.
Selection - Leo Santa Cruz :thumbs
Bet - Leo Santa Cruz by decision :thumbs

Comeback fights are never great Col as usually the opponent has been hand picked ie when Khan had his and theyre never entertaining as if everything goes to script its just to showcase their talent a bit and to boost their confidence (and ego lol) , i didnt bother watching , knew he'd win and also knew it wouldnt be worth watching if im honest , Fury did say he was nervous about it and more nervous than when he fought Klitschko , id concentrate on the next fight or more probably the one after that when he fights someone decent :thumbs

Saturday 16th June - Errol Spence v Carlos Ocampo

Spence (23-0 , 20 KOs) meets Mexican Ocampo (22-0 , 13 KOs) for the IBF weleterwight belt , and despite the fact that they've had about the same amount of fights this is a total mismatch imho , as for me Spence is currently one of the best pound for pound boxers out there at the moment , he's stopped his last 10 opponents and i can see this one ending the same way and Ocampo being his 11th straight stoppage. Ocampo is a decent enough boxer in hi own right as is evident by his record , but he's never met anyone of Spences calibre and talent and this looks a massive step up in class for the Mexican , i think he can hold his own for a few rounds but i think Spence's talent will come through and he will stop his opponent.

Cast a lazy eye over the McGregor/Khabib “dirty boxing” thing later as Lads have given everyone a £1 free bet to use on it. Used that on the draw as hardly worth putting it on short odds. The bet that caught my eye is 11/2 for them to touch gloves pre fight with Skybet. I can see arguments either way from a quick google but the consensus seems to be 5/2 yes and 1/4 no so the 11/2 could be generous.

Any thoughts welcome but my money’s down. If the bet loses it will have a material affect on my life; I’ll have to buy 1 less latte next week! (I measure a lot of my bets these days in terms of how much coffee or lunch they’ll buy me!)

Wilder for me
It was a major shock when Fury beat Klitschko, and probably the biggest factor was that Klitschko had been inactive for a while.
Now it's the other way round, Fury has been inactive for a long time.

Wilder by Knockout.

Was thinking similar mate, Fury's legs might go late on so done Wilder rounds 10 and 11 as well as 9-12

Cheers. I didn't realise what the freebie was for at first and tried to use it on a footy bet. Had no thoughts on the fight so just stuck it on the most obvious bet for a worthwhile price to a quid stake.

Hell of a fight! How he beat the count in round 12 I'll never know, he looked to be out cold halfway through the count! Well done for backing the draw harry, seems like a great result for the bookies - how that Mexican judge scored it 115-111 to Wilder is so obviously bent! Referee was great as well, a lot of refs would have given the knockout as Fury barely beat the count.
