As 2021 continues, fight fans are in for a treat, with a collision between Anthony Joshua and Tyson Fury edging ever closer, and Canelo Alvarez v Billy Joe Saunders, Errol Spence Jr. v Terence Crawford and Devin Haney v Jorge Linares already agreed.
And of course, we’re gonna try and give the bookies a bashing!
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, 2021 promises 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 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.
Oleksandr Usyk is expected to make a splash in the heavyweight division as he looks to enforce his WBO mandatory position, with a fight against Brit Joe Joyce a distinct possibility.
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.
Taylor will fight Jose Ramirez on May 22 in a bid to become only the second undisputed super-lightweight champion of the four-belt era.
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 has already despatched Avni Yildirim in 2021, and he will look to cement his incredible legacy even further against Billy Joe Saunders on May 8th.
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.
