Top Boxing Betting Picks of the Week (July 14th, 2022)
Los Angeles, CA – DAZN
- When: July 16th, 2022
Nick Ball vs. Nathanael Kakololo
25-year-old Nick Ball is 15-0 with 8 technical knockout or knockout wins. Ball is on a 2-match winning streak. Both wins came via technical knockout. Nathanael Kakololo has a 14-3-1 record. Like Ball, Kakololo is on a winning streak except Nathanael’s streak is 3 matches. This should be a tough fight. There’s a chance Ball steps into the ring with a conservative strategy, which make over the play.
Boxing Betting Pick: Nick Ball Over 7.5 -120
Dennis McCann vs. James Beech Jr.
12-0 with 6 knockout victories, 21-year-old Dennis “The Menace” McCann will be looking to score his first TKO or KO win since beating Jon Chuwa last July. James Beech Jr. has a decent 14-2 record. Beech Jr. has won just 2 fights via knockout. The last time James knocked out an opponent was 2018. Also, the losses happened via unanimous decision. Go over.
Boxing Betting Pick: Dennis McCann Over 8.5 -303
Pierce O’Leary vs. Robin Zamora
Pierce O’Leary is 9-0 with 5 knockout or technical knockout wins. O’Leary won 2 of his last 3 bouts via TKO. He won his last bout via KO.
Robin Zamora has a 17-14 record. Zamora has dropped 6 bouts via knockout or technical knockout. The massive underdog in this has lost 7 of his last 8 bouts. Zamora has no chance. Don’t be surprised if O’Leary ends Zamora’s night before the bell for the fourth.
Boxing Betting Pick: Robin Zamora Under 3.5 -139
Hamzah Sheeraz vs. Francisco Emmanuel Torres
Hamzah Sheeraz is 15-0 with 11 TKO or KO wins. Sheeraz has won 3 of his last 4 bouts via technical knockout. Hamzah knocked out Jez Smith in the second round in his last bout. Francisco Emmanuel Torres has a decent 17-3-1 record. In his last bout, Torres forced a draw versus extremely talented Jose Benavidez Jr. Torres should box well enough for this to go over the rounds total.
Boxing Betting Pick: Hamzah Sheeraz Over 7.5 -139
Lennox Clarke vs. Mark Heffron
Clarke versus Heffron projects as Saturday most competitive boxing match. Underdog Mark Heffron has a 27-2-1 record with 21 knockout or technical knockout wins. Heffron has won 2 straight since dropping a bout to Denzel Bentley via referee stoppage in 2020. Clarke is 20-1-1. The chalk’s loss happened in a fight versus Lerrone Richards in 2019. This is Lennox’s first bout since March 2021. The layoff gives Heffron a better chance of winning this than the odds indicate. Heffron is the play.
Boxing Betting Pick: Mark Heffron +240
Ryan Garcia vs. Javier Fortuna
Javier Fortuna is an excellent boxer, but he doesn’t have much chance versus 22-0 Ryan Garcia. The chalk has knocked out 18 of his opponents. Fortuna beat up overmatched Rafael Hernandez in his last. Before beating Hernandez, Fortuna had lost a bout to Joseph Diaz via unanimous decision. Garcia won his last bout via unanimous decision.
Although Ryan can knock Javier out, the more likely scenario is that Garcia wins a UD. Fortuna won’t put himself in harm’s way and Garcia will take what comes to him. Over is the play.
Boxing Betting Pick: Ryan Garcia Over 7.5 -120
