Top Boxing Betting Picks of the Week (November 6th, 2023)

Next Gen: Masoud vs. Sanmartin – Utilita Arena, Newcastle, Tyne and Wear, England (DAZN)

  • When: Saturday, November 11th, 2023. 2:00pm ET

Calum French vs. Jeff Ofori

At first glance, it looks like Jeff Ofori can beat Calum French. The +400 underdog took it to Lee Hallett in February this year, beating Hallett via split-decision. However, Hallett sported a 1-54-2 record heading into the bout.

Besides beating Hallett, Ofori shows a draw in his last against Marley Mason and a fourth round knockout loss to Jadier Herrera. Calum French is 4-0 with a stoppage win. Don’t be surprised when French gets the second knockout victory of his career on Saturday.

Boxing Betting Pick: Calum French -750

Ewan Mackenzie vs. Ishmael Davis

Underdog Ewan Mackenzie has a terrific 8-0 record. The reason Ewan is the underdog in this is because he has just 3 knockout or technical knockout wins. Also, Mackenzie has had to settle for decision victories in his last 3.

Ishmael Davis is 11-0. Davis shows 5 stoppage victories. While Mackenzie has won 3 straight via decision, Ishmael has won 3 straight via technical knockout. The favorite has more power. So give Davis the nod.

Boxing Betting Pick: Ishmael Davis -155

Mark Dickinson vs. Grant Dennis

40-year-old Grant Dennis has much more experience than 24-year-old Mark Dickinson. Dennis is 18-5 with 3 wins that came before the final bell.

The problem with backing Dennis is that he shows 2 stoppage losses among his five. Not only that, but Dickinson is undefeated at 5-0. Then there’s the age thing. It’s going to be difficult for Dennis to keep up with Dickinson. The -800 chalk prevails.

Boxing Betting Pick: Mark Dickinson -800

Shabaz Masoud vs. Jose Sanmartin // WBA Inter Continental Super Bantamweight Title

Jose Sanmartin brings a 24-7-1 record into his bout with Shabaz Masoud. Sanmartin hopes the experience will lead him to an upset victory.

But although Masoud has just 11 fights, he’s proven he can win in multiple ways. Masoud is also taller by 2 inches and knocked out then 17-0 Jack Bateson in his last. Masoud could be discovering his power, which is why a second straight knockout victory is possible.

Boxing Betting Pick: Shabaz Masoud -2000

Mercado vs. Nakathila – LumColor “Phoenix Center”, Ontario, California (Internet PPV)

  • When: Saturday, November 11th, 2023. 9:00pm ET

Ernesto Mercado vs. Jeremiah Nakathila

12-0 Ernesto Mercado is on the championship bout fast track. Mercado has already fought 4 times this year. Ernesto knocked out Henry Lundy and Carlos Manuel Portillo in the first round. Mercado beat Xolisani Ndongeni via decision.

Former title belt contender Jeremiah Nakathila boasts a 23-3 record with 19 stoppage wins. Nakathila has fought some of the best in the world, including Shakur Stevenson and Raymond Muratalla.

The loss to Stevenson came in 2021. Nakathila upset Miguel Berchelt in 2022. In his last, Jeremiah fell to Muratalla. The knockout loss to Muratalla could be a turning point in Nakathila’s career.

Mercado is one of the sport’s top rising prospects. He’ll try to KO the underdog as quickly as possible so as to prove he’s worthy of fighting opponents like Ray Muratalla. Mercado impresses and sends Nakathila into retirement.

Boxing Betting Pick: Ernesto Mercado -500
