Top Boxing Betting Picks of the Week (January 22nd, 2024)

Crocker vs. Felix – Ulster Hall, Belfast, Northern Ireland (DAZN)

  • When: Saturday, January 27th, 2024. 2:00pm ET

Paddy Donovan vs. William Andres Herrera

Dog William Andres Herrera has a decent enough record at 15-2 with 6 victories via TKO or KO. Also, both of Herrera’s losses came via decision. But Herrera has fought mostly in his native Argentina where the boxing gyms aren’t of the same quality as those in Ireland and the UK.

Paddy Donovan is 12-0 with 9 stoppage wins. Donovan beat well-regarded Danny Ball in the last, stopping Ball in the fourth round via technical knockout. The -2500 choice won’t lose. Look for a knockout prop or go under once oddsmakers set a rounds total before backing Paddy on the moneyline.

Boxing Betting Pick: Paddy Donovan -2500

Cheavon Clarke vs. Tommy McCarthy // WBA Inter Continental Cruiserweight Title

Clarke versus McCarthy should be a great bout. McCarthy is 20-5 with 10 stoppage wins. McCarthy lost his last via TKO, but the bout came versus 24-2 Michael Cieslak.

Clarke is undefeated at 7-0. Not only has Clarke never tasted defeat but he’s won 5 bouts via knockout or technical knockout. Clarke has power. Cheavon’s power will cause McCarthy to backpedal to escape danger, which will lead to a Clarke victory.

Boxing Betting Pick: Cheavon Clarke -550

Lewis Crocker vs. Jose Felix Jr. // WBO Inter Continental Welterweight Title

+450 underdog Jose Felix Jr. has a ton of experience. Felix Jr. boasts a 40-6-1 record. The dog in this has lost just 2 of his matches via stoppage before the final bell. Among the 40 victories, Felix Jr. has knocked out 31 of his opponents.

The -850 chalk is 18-0 with 10 stoppage wins. Crocker would be a definite play against, but Felix Jr. has lost 2-of-3. Ah, but the dog’s 2 losses came against Tyrone McKenna and Sandor Martin, both top class pugilists. The odds make the underdog more than playable.

Boxing Betting Pick: Jose Felix Jr. +450

Munguia vs. Ryder – Footprint Center, Phoenix, AZ (DAZN)

  • When: Saturday, January 27th, 2024. 9:00pm ET

Gabriela Fundora vs. Cristina Cruz // IBF World Female Flyweight Title

Fundora is a massive favorite for a reason. The 21-year-old fighter from Coachella is 12-0 with 5 stoppage wins. Facing 32-3-2 Arely Mucino in her last, Fundora got the fifth-round straight up knockout victory.

Cristina Cruz is 6-0. Cruz doesn’t have a stoppage win to her credit. Not only that, but Cruz is also 41, which means Fundora, the champion in this bout, is 20 years younger. Gabriela should win her second straight before the final bell. Go under or look for a KO prop.

Boxing Betting Pick: Gabriela Fundora -2000

Jaime Munguia vs. John Ryder

Before a May 2023 loss to Canelo Alvarez, Ryder had won 4 straight. In his last 2 bouts before the Canelo loss, Ryder got by Daniel Jacobs via split-decision and beat then 22-0 Zack Parker when the ref stopped the bout in the fourth round.

Although Ryder fought well before falling to Canelo, Jaime Munguia won’t be easy to beat. Mungia is 41-0 with 33 stoppage victories. Canelo won’t fight Munguia, which tells us all we must know about the 27-year-old from Tijuana. Munguia can win this knockout.

Boxing Betting Pick: Jaime Munguia -350
