Weekly Boxing Bets | July 31: Brentwood, Essex, England (DAZN)
Are you guys interested in a couple of stellar weekly boxing bets? If you are, then you’ll love what we have in store for you:
Conor Benn (-1600) vs. Adrian Granados (+700)
18-0-0, 12 KOs
|Adrian Granados |
21-8-3, 15 KOs
KO %: 66.67%
KO %: 45.45%
Benn is viewed by many to be one of the future faces of UK boxing, and to cement this fact, he has demanded stiffer competition. In Granados he will get just that, having faced Shawn Porter, Adrian Broner, and Danny Gracia, he is not one to run from a fight. Granados was on the losing end of all 3 of those fights and will play the role of gatekeeper for Benn.
A clear-cut victory will open the door to bigger fights at 147lbs for the UK potential star. Benn is known for going all-out with flurries of punches, Granados has been stopped 8 times in his career, the math is simple here.
Best Bet: Fight Ends in Rounds 1-6 , -125 (Bet365)
Tommy McCarthy (+250) vs. Chris Billam-Smith (-350)
18-2-0, 9 KOs
12-1-0, 10 KOs
KO %: 45%
Height: 6’-2 ½ “
Reach: 74 ½ ”
KO %: 76.92%
Chris “The Gentleman” Billam-Smith called out Tommy McCarthy via social media following his victory over Vasil Ducar (9-4-1,8 KOs) earlier this year. His wish was granted now these two UK cruiserweights will clash for the EBU European Cruiser Title, Commonwealth Cruise Title and BBBofC British Cruiser Title. With the combination of the belts, trash talk and both fighters fighting at home this is a fight of the night candidate.
Both fighters have shown resilience to bounce back from losses and have nothing to lose in this fight. I believe this is more of a toss-up than the betting lines predict, I expect it to end in the middle rounds based on previous fight stats.
Best Bet: Fight Ends in Rounds 5-8 , +240 (Bet365)
Avni Yildirim (+137) vs. Jack Cullen (-188)
21-3-0, 12 KOs
19-2-1, 9 KOs
KO %: 50%
Height: 5’-11 ½ “
KO %: 40.91%
Avni “Mr Robot” Yildirim looks to find success at a new weight division following two consecutive losses to Canelo Alvarez and Anthony Dirrell. Yildirim will try his luck at 164lbs with new coach Pedro Diaz when he takes on Jack “Little Lever’s Meat Cleaver” Cullen.
It is hard to predict what type of showing we will get from Yildirim with a new trainer, division and coming off an embarrassing loss to Canelo. On the flip side Cullen hasn’t faced the level of opposition that Yildirim has.
Yildirim isn’t a big puncher with a 50% knockout rate, Cullen sits at a 41% KO rate. This is a close fight that should go to distance, the winner is a toss up with too many unknowns.
Best Bet: Fight Goes the Distance, -125 (Bet365)
