Top Boxing Betting Picks of the Week (August 28th, 2023)

Smith vs. Eubank 2: Repeat or Revenge – AO Arena, Manchester, England (ESPN+)

  • When: Saturday, September 2nd, 2023. 2:00pm ET.

Frankie Stringer vs. Christian Flores

Christian Flores may not fight. Instead, Stringer’s opponent could end up 8-15-1 Engel Gomez. No matter if Stringer fights Gomez or Flores, he projects to win this bout.

The favorite is 5-0. The lone knock is that Frankie has yet to stop an opponent before the final round. But Stringer could be developing more power. No doubt, the chalk and his connections understand that to challenge for a title, he must develop power shot combinations.

Flores, who has a 12-27-2 record, or Gomez could be Frankie’s first knockout win. So if you see a knockout prop, consider backing Frankie on it.

Boxing Betting Pick: Frankie Stringer -3333

Mark Heffron vs. Jack Cullen // British, Commonwealth Super Middleweight Title

Cullen versus Heffron should be a fantastic fight. Although Heffron is the big time chalk, the bout will be close for a long time.

The chalk in this boasts a 29-2-1 record. Heffron has 23 knockouts from the 29 victories. Mark is on a 4-match winning streak. Heffron beat Denzel Bentley when that opponent was undefeated and recently took down solid Martin Ezequil Balacio.

So Heffron should be the chalk. But the odds make it seem like Cullen has no chance in this. That’s not the case. Jack is 21-4-1, and although he’s lost 2-of-3, Cullen can bounce back. Heffron suffered both his losses via stoppage. At the odds, Cullen is worth backing to get it done.

Boxing Betting Pick: Jack Cullen +279

Silvia Bortot vs. Mikaela Mayer

Mikaela Mayer shouldn't lose this bout. The -2500 favorite bounced back from a split-decision loss to Alycia Baumgardner in October last year to beat Lucy Wildheart via 10-round unanimous decision on April 15 this year.

Silvia Bortot has a decent record, but she’s fought primarily in Italy. Italian gyms aren’t close to the gyms where Mayer learned her craft. Mikaela could get the sixth stoppage win of her career. So for sure look to play under the total rounds or for a TKO/KO prop.

Boxing Betting Pick: Mikaela Mayer -2500

Aram Faniian vs. Adam Azim

Aram Faniian has a great record. The massive underdog in this is 23-1 with 5 knockout victories. Faniian heads into this on a 10-match winning streak. For sure, Faniian will fight the chalk tough.

However, Adam Azim should win this bout. As good as Faniian has fought, his lack of power will be his undoing. The -2000 favorite is 8-0 with 6 stoppage victories.

Azim went the distance in his last versus Santiago Reyes. At the time of the bout, Reyes was 12-0. The favorite should go back to his knockout winning ways. If you can find a TKO/KO prop or if you see an over under total round prop, bet one of those options before backing Azim on the money line.

Boxing Betting Pick: Adam Azim -2000

Liam Smith vs. Chris Eubank Jr.

Warriors Liam Smith and Chris Eubank Jr throw down for 12 rounds on Saturday for nothing more than the right to say, “I’m tougher than you.”

Right now, Smith can say it. In the first bout between these two, Smith dominated Eubank Jr on his way to a fourth-round technical knockout victory.

Eubank Jr wouldn’t have taken the rematch if he didn’t think he could exact his revenge. Although Smith looks tough, the underdog is the pick.

Boxing Betting Pick: Chris Eubank Jr +119
