Top Boxing Betting Picks of the Week (October 23rd, 2023)

Fury vs. Ngannou: Battle of the Baddest – Riyadh, Saudi Arabia (PPV)

  • When: Saturday, October 28th, 2023. 2:00pm ET

Joseph Parker vs. Simon Kean

Canadian knockout artist Simon Kean takes on the best boxer of his career when he goes toe-to-toe with former titlist Joseph Paker. Kean has a fantastic 23-1 record with 22 stoppage victories.

Kean’s only loss came in 2018 versus Dillon Carman. Since then, Simon has dominated his foes with 8 straight wins via TKO, KO, or referee technical decision.

Joseph Parker is 32-3 with 22 knockout wins. Parker has won 2 straight after dropping a bout to Joe Joyce. The chalk lasted 11 rounds versus Joyce. Kean’s lone loss came via KO. So if you don’t want to back Parker on the money line consider betting a TKO or KO prop.

Boxing Betting Pick: Joseph Parker -909

Fabio Wardley vs. David Adeley

Wardley is a deserving favorite. The -312 choice is undefeated with a 16-0 record. Wardley has also won 15 of his 16 bouts via technical knockout or knockout.

David Adeley is also undefeated. Big D has won 11-of-12 via stoppage. Wardley has more experience, but in his last couple of bouts, Adeley beat then 10-0 Dmytro Bezus via second round TKO and got by Emir Ahmatovic in the fifth on a referee technical decision. Backing the dog makes sense.

Boxing Betting Pick: David Adeley +230

Tyson Fury vs. Francis Ngannou

Francis Ngannou is a massive man. He’s also a tough dude who would beat most people he faced if he faced them in the Octagon.

But boxing is very specific. Not many MMA fighters can make the transition. Ngannou has no shot. After watching his training session in front of the media, it’s obvious he’s light years away from Tyson Fury.

The champ wins angles against top competition and Ngannou commits one of boxing’s ultimate sins, keeping your left down. He won’t have enough time to get his left up before Tyson punishes him. With that being said, Fury will elongate the fight to at least the sixth round. Over is the play.

Boxing Betting Pick: Tyson Fury Over 4.5 -127

Foster vs. Hernandez – Juárez Sports Center, Cancun, Quintana Roo (DAZN)

  • When: Saturday, October 28th, 2023. 9:00pm ET

Justis Huni vs. Andrew Tabiti

Huni is a massive chalk over Andrew Tabiti. The reason could because although Huni has just 7 victories, he’s won 4 of the 7 via TKO. Huni also had a long amateur career with 36 wins and 4 losses.

So Huni has more experience than his pro record indicates. But Tabiti is 20-1 with 16 knockout wins. Tabiti offers crazy odds to upset Justis. We agree that Huni should win. But laying -1429 against an experienced boxer like Tabiti is asking too much. Taking a swing on the big time dog is the play.

Boxing Betting Pick: Andrew Tabiti +700

Eduardo Hernandez vs. O’Shaquie Foster // WBC World Super Featherweight Title

Hernandez versus Foster should be Saturday’s most competitive bout. O’Shaquie is 20-2 with 11 stoppage wins. Foster’s last loss came in 2016 versus then 12-1-1 Rolando Chinea.

The +135 underdog is 34-1 with 31 stoppage victories. Most believe Foster has the better boxing skills, but Hernandez has gotten better and better since a 2019 loss to Roger Guitierrez. The slight underdog should send O’Shaquie to the canvas at least once in this.

Boxing Betting Pick: Eduardo Hernandez +135
