By Hank Blaine

Three championship bouts and one of the best pound-for-pound pugilists on the planet highlights this weekend’s boxing action. Edgar Berlanga is unplayable to beat Jason Quigley. We can, though, make a total rounds play. The championship fights are Franko versus Ioka, Martinez versus Bornea, and Adames against Williams. Which boxers put the belt around their waist and will Quigley hang with Berlanga past the total? See below for boxing odds, analysis, and free picks for this Saturday’s top bouts.

Top Boxing Betting Picks of the Week (June 19th, 2023)

Lifetime Boxing Fights 15: Ioka vs. Franco 2 – Ota City General Gymnasium, Tokyo, Japan

  • When: Saturday, June 24, 2023. 1:30am ET.

Joshua Franco vs. Kazuto Ioka / WBA Junior Bantamweight Title

Calderon versus Giyasov should be an entertaining bout. Calderon has a 27-0 record. The huge underdog in this has stopped 18 of his opponents before the final bell.

Giyasov doesn’t have nearly the experience Calderon has. Shakhram has 13-0. The favorite has won 6 of his bouts via straight up KO and 3 via TKO.

Although Calderon has more than double Giyasov’s wins, the chalk has fought the much better opponents. Giyasov should knock out Calderon. So look for a KO or TKO prop before backing the favorite on the money line.

Boxing Betting Pick: Kazuto Ioka -104

Berlanga vs. Quigley – Hulu Theater at MSG, New York City, NY (DAZN)

  • When: Saturday, June 24, 2023. 8:00pm ET.

Edgar Berlanga Over 4.5 -115 vs. Jason Quigley Under 4.5 -110

The total is low for a Berlanga fight. Yes, Edgar is 20-0 with 16 knockout wins. But Berlanga has fought 4 straight unanimous decision victories.

Also, Quigley is 20-2, meaning Edgar’s opponent on Saturday has experience that will help him elongate the fight. Berlanga requires rounds. Edgar has said this. Over is the play.

Boxing Betting Pick: Edgar Berlanga Over 4.5 -115

Adames vs. Williams – The Armory, Minneapolis, MN (Showtime)

  • When: Saturday, June 24, 2023. 9:00pm ET.

Fernando Martinez vs. Jade Bornea // IBF World Super Flyweight Title

Fernando Martinez is 15-0 with 8 knockout or technical knockout victories. The reason Martinez is such a big time chalk in this bout is because he’s beaten Jerwin Ancajas in his last couple of fights.

Most feel Ancajas is one of the better fighters in the division. The problem with thinking that is we discount Bornea’s physical advantages.

First, let’s be clear. Fernando Martinez isn’t taking on Jake Bornea. He’s fighting Jade Bornea. Jade Bornea is taller and knows how to use his jab. Jake Bornea is a decent fighter. Jade Bornea has championship level skills.

Bornea is 18-0 with 12 stoppage wins. The underdog offers overlay odds and, therefore, is the pick.

Boxing Betting Pick: Jade Bornea +340

Erickson Lubin vs. Luis Arias

Luis Arias has a terrific 20-3-1 record. Arias has lost 2 of his last 4 but both were via points. Arias has never lost before the final bell, which should give his backers hope he can pull off the big time upset.

Erickson Lubin is 24-2. Lubin lost his last but that was versus Sebastian Fundora. Arias has a chance to add another loss, however, that’s not the best bet.

Whether Arias or Lubin wins this bout, going over is the safe play. Look for a total rounds bet and then go over because a decision is possible. If you have to pick a winner, take a sing on Arias.

Boxing Betting Pick: Luis Arias +560

Carlos Adames vs. Julian Williams // Interim WBC World Middleweight Title

It’s impossible to go against Adames in this. For sure, Julian Williams is a good boxer. But Julian is far removed from the days when he could fight for a title.

Williams is now 33-years-old and although he won his last fight, it came on the heels of 2 straight losses. Not only that, but Julian beat 18-11-1 Rolando Mansilla in his last.

Carlos Adames is 22-1 with 17 stoppage wins. Adames dusted Juan Macias Montiel in his last. Adames should end Williams’ night early.

Boxing Betting Pick: Carlos Adames -625
