Top Boxing Betting Picks of the Week – September 15th, 2022

By Hank Blaine

For the third time, Saul “Canelo” Alvarez and Gennadiy “GGG” Golovkin will dance. Alvarez and Golovkin step into the ring on Saturday night to solve for once and all which of the two future hall of fame boxers is the better fighter. Unlike in the previous two matches, Alvarez is a huge favorite to end Golovkin’s career. Will Canelo get it done?

Top Boxing Betting Picks of the Week (September 15th, 2022)

Blton Whites Hotel, Bolton, UK

  • When: Saturday, September 17th, 2022. 4pm ET.

Gavin Gwynne vs. Craig Woodruff // British and Commonwealth Lightweight titles

30 year old British lightweight Craig Woodruff enters the ring with an okay 12-6 record. Like so many UK fighters, Woodruff lacks power. He’s knocked out 4 of his opponents. Gavin Gwynne also lacks power. Gwynne is 15-2 with 3 knockout wins. Gavin probably takes this but it’s tough to back a boxer who lacks a killer instinct. At the odds, Woodruff is the play.

Boxing Betting Pick: Craig Woodruff +200

T-Mobile Arena, Las Vegas, NV – DAZN

  • When: Saturday, September 17th, 2022. 8pm ET.

Austin Williams vs. Keiron Conway

Keiron Conway rides a 2-match winning streak into the ring. In 2021, Conway beat James Metcalf via unanimous decision. This year, Conway beat Gregory Trenel via fourth round technical knockout.

Williams is the big time chalk because 9 of his 11 wins have come via knockout. Conway, yep, is one of those British boxers who lacks power. Williams wins and he probably wins via KO or TKO.

Boxing Betting Pick: Austin Williams -667

Ali Akhmedov vs. Gabriel Rosado

Rosado is one of the toughest dudes to have stepped into a boxing ring in the past 20 years. Gabriel is at the tail end of his career, which is why his record is 26-15-1.

The underdog in this has never shied away from a challenge, which is why it makes sense that he’s willing to step into the ring versus Ali Akhmedov. The favorite is 18-1 with 14 knockout wins. Saturday night should be Rosado’s swan song.

Boxing Betting Pick: Ali Akhmedov -667

Jesse Rodriguez vs. Israel Gonzalez

This is Israel Gonzalez’s first fight in the United States. Gonzalez has a decent record 28-4-1 with 11 knockout victories. We respect any boxer with as good of a record as Gonzalez’s that hails from Mexico.

But it’s difficult seeing Israel hanging with Jesse Rodriguez. Jesse is 16-0 with 11 stoppage victories. Gonzalez has suffered a knockout loss. Under is more than probable.

Boxing Betting Pick: Israel Gonzalez Under 8.5 -125

Saul Alvarez vs. Gennadiy Golovkin

The judges robbed Gennadiy in the first fight. In the second bout, Canelo had GGG chasing him all night. It looked like Alvarez threw the harder punches and delivered the better performance. So it’s difficult to knock Canelo even though he won the bout via majority decision.

Since the win over Golovkin, Alvarez has beaten Rocky Fielding, Daniel Jacobs, Sergey Kovalev, Callum Smith, Avni Yildirim, Billy Joe Saunders, and Caleb Plant.

Since losing to Alvarez, Gennadiy has fought 4 times. None of Golovkin’s 4 opponents are on Smith’s, Saunder’s, or Plant’s level. Don’t worry about Alvarez’s loss to Dmitrii Bivol in his last bout. Bivol might be the best light heavyweight in the world. Canelo takes The Trilogy.

Boxing Betting Pick: Saul Alvarez -625
