This is also the World Boxing Super Series tournament final at pounds. It's a high-stakes bout, with division supremacy, domestic bragging rights, and a lot of future big fights going to the winner.
Will the hard-slugging style and youthful energy of Smith be enough? Or will Groves' versatility and experience be the deciding factors? Loot breaks the fight down here, along with his betting pick. Joshua continues to build toward what he hopes becomes full-fledged heavyweight supremacy. To do so, he will have to beat a still-capable fellow gold medal Olympic champion in the once-beaten Povetkin. Can Povetkin spoil the plans here or will Joshua continue racking up the dominant wins?
Loot chimes in here with his fight breakdown and pick to win. It's a rematch of a controversial fight from last September, when Canelo earned what many felt was an unfair draw verdict. A few failed drug tests by Canelo and some heated negotiations later, they are set to renew acquaintances at the T-Mobile Arena in Vegas. Can Golovkin win in a way where it's impossible to deny him? Or will the younger Canelo find a way to turn the tables and score what many would consider an upset?
In this article, Loot breaks down the action, the styles of the fighters, and offers his betting pick in what could be the Fight of the Year. The hometown favorite Whyte and the former titleholder Parker both have one loss, having come up short to current heavyweight champ Anthony Joshua.
Whyte's loss to AJ was several years ago and he has gotten on a nice roll since his only setback. Parker, meanwhile, just lost to Joshua in March and looks to bounce back in a big way in this fight, again in hostile territory. Will Whyte hold down the fort or can Parker get the job done? Loot breaks down the fight in this article! Both men have been in some high-profile bouts with mixed results. The winner of this fight will have more opportunities down the line.
It promises to be an entertaining heavyweight bout on the Whyte-Parker undercard, a fight where any number of different possibilities are plausible. In this article, Loot breaks down the fight and offers his betting selection. It's safe to say this is the biggest cruiserweight fight in the division's history, with two prime unbeaten champions fighting with all the marbles at stake.
This is the final of a tournament meant to crown the best pounder in the world. Both have beaten tough competition to get here. They're both big cruiserweights who might one day move up to try their hand at heavyweight. The winner of this fight will have a massive gem on his resume. Who can get the job done? Loot breaks down this affair, while offering his betting selection. One of the sport's legends returns on July 14, as Manny Pacquiao takes on Lucas Matthysse in Malaysia in a welterweight title bout.
The clock is winding down on the year old Pacman, who still looks to quench his thirst for glory and money. In the other corner is a noted puncher in Matthysse, a fighter who has scored 36 knockouts in 39 wins. Will Pacquiao be able to still rely on his speed and movement to avoid the hammers of the Argentine? Or will Matthysse cap off what has been a long road to this spot with a huge upset win?
Loot breaks down the action here, along with his betting prediction. Undefeated welterweights take center stage in Las Vegas on April 14, with Jeff Horn defending his WBO belt against a former two-division champ in his first fight at pounds in Terence Crawford. The Crawford is considered one of the top fighters in the sport and is a large favorite as he goes for a title in his third weight class.
Horn holds a win over Pacquiao, though some still question his talent and merit at this position. Will Crawford use Horn as a stepping-stone to bigger things at welterweight? Or will Horn again show that he's more of a handful than people think? Loot offers his take and betting pick here! The bout takes place at the Bell Centre in Stevenson's adopted hometown where he usually sells out.
A ferocious puncher, Stevenson is getting up there in age and has been inactive, making this fight against Jack a tough one to call.
After all, while Stevenson has been fighting sporadically and in easy defenses, Jack has been taking on tough opposition. Loot offers his wagering pick in this article. This is another test for "Hi-Tech" as he continues to rise up the pound-for-pound ladder.
But with Linares being a talented and experienced three-division champion, this could be a tough fight for the Ukrainian two-time gold medal Olympic champion.
Loot breaks down this matchup here, followed by his betting pick. This is for the World Cruiserweight Title, as the winner of this fight will have cleaned out the division. Both men have been well-vetted, having overcome numerous challenges in the surging cruiserweight weight class.
The winner might be forced to move up to heavyweight, with this fight being for all the marbles. Loot breaks down this high-stakes battle, along with his betting pick. In their first fight last year, Bellew was triumphant with a TKO win. Haye, injured in the fight, looks to set the record straight in this anticipated rematch. Bellew was in his first heavyweight fight, beating a hard-hitting opponent in Haye in his debut as a big man.
Could he have done it without Haye getting injured? With nearly a year passing since their last fight, we should anticipate a healthier Haye, which could make this tougher on Bellew.
Who can get the upper hand on May 5 in London. Loot offers his wagering advice in this article. Welterweights take center stage in Brooklyn on April 21, with Adrien Broner taking on Jessie Vargas in a pound catchweight bout.
Both men are knocking on the door of some big things, making this a must-win for each fighter. Broner is coming off a tough loss to Mikey Garcia and really needs this one.
Vargas, meanwhile, is coming off some inactivity and looks to reignite a career that was picking up some steam a few years ago. The odds are close and it's a tough one to pick.
Loot offers his analysis and makes his betting selection in this article. Frampton is looking for a rubber match with Leo Santa Cruz and other big fights, but standing in his way in the erstwhile Donaire. It's been a while since Donaire rose to the top of the sport. Can the old lion who used to carry bricks in his fists once again make an impact? Or will the Belfast atmosphere and Frampton be too much to overcome?
Loot offers his fight breakdown and betting pick in this article! In a heavyweight championship unification match on March 31, unbeaten titleholders Anthony Joshua and Joseph Parker will do battle in Wales. Joshua is , with all wins by KO. He is favored to win and is accustomed to fighting in this gigantic stadium, with his last fight having been here. Parker, however, is a champion in his own right, an unbeaten year old looking to score the win of his life. Will Joshua continue his steamrolling ways?
Or can the talented and possibly overlooked Parker spring the surprise? Loot breaks down this matchup here in this article. As the co-feature on the Joshua-Parker extravaganza on March 31, a pair of notable heavyweights will do battle, with former champion Alexander Povetkin taking on England's David Price. With this bout being on this particular card, the winner could be in line for a big fight. Povetkin is 38, with one career loss.
He looks to get back into the thick of things in a revamped heavyweight division. Price, meanwhile, is looking to fulfill the promise he once showed, following a erratic run in the pro ranks. Loot breaks down this fight here, offering his betting selection. The winner of this fight sets himself up for a big fight against one of the champions.
Whyte already took on champion Anthony Joshua, nearly scoring the KO. Sanchez also complained about referee Tony Weeks, who was initially recommended to officiate the fight. Instead, Benjy Esteves Jr. Canelo has to be aggressive and smart. His best course of action would be letting GGG chase him and punch himself out.
Alvarez needs to keep his emotions in check if he wants to win. This is for the legacy of his career, so he has to do his best to go the distance.
He also cannot afford to give up the middle rounds. Golovkin has to attack the body even more. His jabs were great in the first fight; he needs to add more body shots and take counter-shots by Canelo. Cutting off the ring to prevent Canelo from running will be crucial.
