Today’s Boxing betting tips take a look at some of the headlining action that is coming around on the weekend.

Vasyl Lomachenko is back in action in the early hours of Sunday morning, he looks like a clear cut winner in his bout with Richard Commey.

Along with a look at his title bout, we are also staying a little closer to home with our three picks for boxing betting today.


Best Boxing Betting Tips Today: Katie Taylor v Firuza Sharipova

Boxing betting tips today starts with Ireland’s Katie Talyor who has faced and will face, tougher tests than this in her career.

On the weekend Taylor faces Kazakhstan fighter Firuza Sharipova.

Taylor is the heavy favourite for this one which is a mandatory title defence for the Irish boxer.

Not only is Taylor’s WBA world lightweight title, but her WB, IBF and Ring Magazine belts are all on the line.

It is a 19-0 career record held by Katie Taylor.

This will be Taylor’s first fight since taking a points decision against American Jennifer Han in September.

The last five victories for Taylor have been by a unanimous decision.

6 other 19 wins have been by knockout.

She meets Firuza Sharipova who holds a 14-1 career record.

The only loss that she suffered was in her first pro fight. Sharapova does bring a bit of heat to the table.

Four of her last five wins have come via a knockout.

But Taylor is on a different level when it comes to quality of opposition that Sharipova faces on the weekend.

Of Sharipova’s 14 wins, 6 have come against pro-debutants.

This looks like one opponent that Taylor should be able to stop from going the distance.

Boxing Betting Picks Today: Conor Benn v Chris Algieri

Boxing betting for today looks at the next fight for Conor Benn, and this could be an important one.

This is arguably the toughest test that he has faced so far in his career.

But victory on the weekend against former World Champion Chris Algieri is going to propel Benn to bigger things.

Benn is a heavy odds-on favourite to win the fight and he defends his unbeaten 19-0 career record.

12 of those victories Benn has won via a stoppage.

Benn faced Adrian Granados just back in early September in Leeds and won a unanimous decision.

Benn has won three of his last five by knockout.

All career knockouts that he has achieved have been before the fifth round of a fight.

He is on the up in the welterweight division and the 25-year-old could get a shot at some line like Amir Khan or more likely, Kell Brook after.

The bottom line is, get through this, there should be a shot at a title next year for Benn.

What does he face in Chris Algieri?

A former world champion who has stood in the ring against Manny Pacquiao, Amir Khan and Errol Spence Jr before.

Algieri returned from more than two years out of the ring to bate Mikkel LesPierre on points in early August.

We think that the 37-year-old veteran won’t be able to dig too deeply in his bag of defence to get himself out of trouble against a rapidly maturing Benn.

Benn to win by KO, TKO or Disqualification at 8/11

Boxing Betting Tips for Today: Vasyl Lomachenko v Richard Commey

Today’s Boxing betting tips winds up with a look at the brilliant Vasyl Lomachenko as he takes on his next challenge.

The Ukrainian is looking to get himself back on track in this one.

In his last major fight, Lomachenko was beaten on a unanimous decision by Teofimo Lopez, losing his WBA, WBO and The Ring lightweight titles in the process.

Lomachenko has had one fight since then, knocking out Masayoshi Nakatani in the summer.

That was merely a sharpener for Lomachenko as he climbs the ladder again.

He looked like he needed it to, as the Ukrainian appeared to be half a step short of his rapid best.

‘The Matrix’ is a former world champion in three different weight divisions.

Bet at Betfair

Former IBF lightweight champion Richard Commey knows the ropes, although he looks as if he is going to come up short in this one.

He has a height and reach advantage over Lomachenko which he will hope to make the most of to try and win the WBO inter-continental lightweight title on the weekend.

None of Commey’s last six fights has gone the distance (W5 L1).

The one loss for Commey in that sequence was when he was stopped in the second round of a contest against that man Teofimo Lopez in 2019.

Commey has fought once since then, beating Jackson Marinez in February.

Lomachenko at least lasted the distance against Lopez.

That sums it up nicely and a late stoppage by the Ukrainian wouldn’t be a surprise.
