Barclays Center โ€“ Showtime Boxing

  • When: July 30th, 2022

Chris Billam-Smith vs. Isaac Chamberlain

Chalk Chris Billam-Smith is 15-1 with 11 knockout or technical knockout wins. The lone loss happened against Richard Riakporhe via tenth-round split-decision back in 2019. Since then, the chalk has won 6 straight. Billam-Smith faces a tough fighter on July 30 in Isaac Chamberlain. The underdog in this is 14-1. Chamberlain hasnโ€™t lost since 2018, winning 5 straight bouts.

Lika Billam-Smith, Chamberlain has some power. Heโ€™s scored 8 knockout victories from his 14 wins. The underdog can bite.

Boxing Betting Pick: Isaac Chamberlain +135

Vito Mielnicki Jr. vs. Jimmy Williams

Veteran Jimmy Williams is 18-8-2 with 6 TKO or KO wins. Williams heads into this on a 3- match losing streak. This past September, Greg Vendetti won a tenth-round split-decision. Then in March, Tyrone James beat Williams via fourth-round TKO. The third loss happened in May when Luis Arias beat Williams via unanimous decision.

Favorite Vito Mielnicki Jr. has an 11-1 record. Mielnickiโ€™s loss happened in April, 2021. Since then, Vito has won 3 straight bouts. Williams would have a chance, but heโ€™s not fighting well. It feels like Jimmy took this fight for the paycheck.

Boxing Betting Pick: Vito Mielnicki Jr. -1600

Gary Antuanne Russell vs. Rances Barthelemy

Russell is 15-0 with 15 knockout or technical knockout wins. Russell last fought February this year, beating well-regarded Viktor Postol via tenth-round TKO.

This wonโ€™t be an easy fight for the favorite. Rances Barthelemy is 29-1-1 with 15 KO or TKO wins. Rances loss happened back in 2018. But Gary Russell can brawl or box. The chalk also has a youth edge because Barthelemy is 37.

Boxing Betting Pick: Gary Antuanne Russell -1400

Adam Kownacki vs. Ali Eren Demirezen

Kownacki brings a 20-2 record into this bout. The underdog has won 15 of his bouts via knockout or technical knockout. But although Kownackiโ€™s record is nice, heโ€™s lost his last two fights.

Both losses happened versus Robert Helenius. Demirezen is 16-1. The favorite has scored 12 TKO or KO wins in his 16 victories. The Iceman last loss in 2019 and when he did it was via unanimous decision. Both of Kownackiโ€™s recent losses were via technical knockout. The chalk is the play.

Boxing Betting Pick: Ali Eren Demirezen -200

Jose Benavidez Jr. vs. Danny Garcia

36-3 Danny Garcia hopes to rediscover the magic that led to a championship and a top ten pound-for-pound ranking. At one point, some considered Garcia the best welterweight fighting. Garciaโ€™s form has fallen off some. Heโ€™s lost 2 of his last 4. Both losses were to excellent boxers, Shawn Porter and Errol Spence Jr, which is why Danny is the big favorite heading into his bout with Benavidez Jr.

But the underdog is no joke. The +465 choice is 27-1-1. Jose lost to Terence Crawford back in 2018. This past November, Benavidez Jr. drew with Francisco Torres. We should expect to see the underdogโ€™s best. Jose Benavidez Jr. can pull off the upset win.

Boxing Betting Pick: Jose Benavidez Jr. +465
