As we head into 2021, fight fans could be in for a treat, with potential collisions between Anthony Joshua and Tyson Fury, Gennady Golovkin and Canelo Alvarez, as well as Josh Taylor & Jose Ramirez.
We’re keeping our fingers crossed that all those fights happen, and we’re gonna try and giv the bookies a bashing!
And at Odds Manager we are always in your corner, bringing you the very best boxing betting odds, news, and views including the latest boxing odds and live boxing odds once the big fight has started.
Despite there never being a set, solid schedule in boxing, 2021promises to be one of the biggest in recent history.
The reason why? Anthony Joshua and Tyson Fury.
The pair of British heavyweights are expected to fight twice in 2021, in a slugfest to decide who can truly be called “The Man” of the division.
Outside of the Joshua-Fury circus we have plenty more to look forward to.
Dillian Whyte will rematch Alexander Povetkin after the Russian’s devastating KO of the Briton last August and Oleksandr Usyk is expected to make a splash in the heavyweight division as he looks to enforce his WBO mandatory position.
Carl Frampton returns in February as he looks to become a three-weight world champion against America’s Jamel Herring.
The WBO super-featherweight title will be on the line in London as the “Jackal” attempts to make history.
In the lightweight division we are blessed with a deep pool of talent. Teofimo Lopez, Devin Haney, Ryan Garcia, Gervonta Davis and Vasyl Lomachenko all have the desire to become the number one at 135-pounds, and we should see a couple of super-fights between them towards the end of 2021.
Scotland’s Josh Taylor will also be looking to strengthen his argument for a place on the mythical, but much debated pound-for-pound list.
The 30-year-old is the unified champion in the light-welterweight division, and will be expected to fight Jose Ramirez in 2021 for all of the belts in the division.
What else? Well, we may finally see Kell Brook fight Amir Khan. These are both faded fighters now, but a contest to settle old feuds may well land abroad to give them both a healthy retirement package.
Also, expect Saul “Canelo” Alvarez to continue to dominate the sport in whatever weight class he chooses.
The Mexican is expected to face Caleb Plant and Billy Joe Saunders in 2021, as he looks to cement his incredible legacy even further.
Stay tuned to Odds Manager and we’ll be sure to let you know all the big boxing news in 2021.
With more ways to win a fight than you might think, there are numerous opportunities to bet on boxing.
Backing a heavy favourite to win outright isn’t generally the best play, as the odds will be so low.
Unless you’ve got Floyd Mayweather’s money and can bet big of course!
But if you fancy the underdog to pull off the upset, you’re sure to get a great price.
This is probably the best way to get better odds, as you can bet on the fight ending by knockout, stoppage, or if it goes to points, a split, majority, or unanimous decision.
You can even back the draw if you’re feeling brave!
Do you reckon one of the fighters will be eating canvas early?
Or do you think it’s going to go the distance?
Either way, you can bet on the exact round the fight finishes in, or even groups of rounds, such as 1-3 for example.
Kind of like boxing’s version of the acca this one, just with more people being punched in the face.
You can bet on your man to be knocked down and still win the fight, or maybe you think both boxers are going to hit the deck and the fight goes the distance.
There’s loads of combinations which we’ll help you find before every big fight.
