Top Boxing Betting Picks of the Week (June 26th, 2023)

Crews-Dezurn vs. Marshall – Manchester Arena, Manchester, Lancashire (ESPN+)

  • When: Saturday, July 1, 2023. 2:00pm ET.

Luis Nery vs. Froilan Saludar

Mark Jeffers is the replacement opponent after Mark Heffron had to pull out of the bout against Zak Chelli due to an injury. But just because Jeffers is the replacement, it doesn’t mean he has zero shot in this.

Jeffers is so confident he will beat Chelli that he’s taking this fight two weeks before a schedule July 15 bout versus a to be announced opponent. Also, Jeffers has an excellent 15-0 record.

Chelli’s records is 13-1-1. Based on records, Jeffers has a great shot. Chelli has fought the much better opponents, and it looks like Zak has more power. The dog gives it his all, but the favorite prevails.

Boxing Betting Pick: Zak Chelli -278

Franchon Crews Dezurn vs. Savannah Marshall // Undisputed Female Super Middleweight Title

Franchon Crews Dezurn has a very good 8-1 record with a couple of stoppage wins. We say Franchon’s record is good because the lone loss happened in her first bout in 2016 and it happened versus Claressa Shields.

The fight was four rounds. No opponent is going to beat Shields in 4 rounds. Claressa is too fast to lose a 4-round bout.

Savannah Marshall is the best fighter Dezurn has taken on since throwing down against Shields. Marshall’s lone loss happened via unanimous decision against Shields in her last. The favorite shows 10 stoppage wins from her 12. So look for a KO/TKO prop.

Boxing Betting Pick: Savannah Marshall -455

Anderson vs. Martin – Huntington Center, Toledo, Ohio (ESPN)

  • When: Saturday, July 1, 2023. 10:00pm ET.

Jahi Tucker vs. Nicklaus Flaz

Both these guys can box. Flaz has a 10-2 record with 7 knockout or technical knockout victories. The major underdog in this bounced back from a first round KO loss to Janelson Figueroa Bocachica in 2020 with a majority decision win over then 13-0 Brian Ceballo in 2022.

Chalk Jahi Tucker is one of the sport’s rising stars. Tucker is 10-0 with 5 stoppage victories. Tucker has a slight height advantage but Flaz has a reach advantage. Still, Jahi should get it done. Flaz has lost due to a KO. So search for a prop before accepting the ML odds.

Boxing Betting Pick: Jahi Tucker -1111

Arslanbek Makhmudov vs. Raphael Akpejiori

Akpejiori may not win this bout, but he’s going to fight. The underdog in this has a terrific 15-0 record with 14 stoppage wins.

Makhmudov is 16-0 with 15 knockout or technical knockout victories. This should be a fun bout before the favorite gets either a TKO or KO victory. Here’s another where looking for a stoppage prop, or going under if you find a round total, is the way to go.

Boxing Betting Pick: Arslanbek Makhmudov -1000

Jared Anderson vs. Charles Martin

Charles Martin brings a 29-3-1 record into the fight. Martin has won 26 of his bouts via KO or TKO. Martin has also suffered a couple of technical knockout losses.

Martin’s last loss came versus Luis “King Kong” Ortiz. The loss doesn’t set him up well for this. Jared “Big Baby” Anderson is 14-0 with 14 stoppage wins. Only 1 of Anderson’s opponents has lasted past the fourth round. Martin hung with Ortiz until the sixth, which is why taking a shot on the over makes sense.

Boxing Betting Pick: Jared Anderson Over 4.5 +125
