The Grueling Truth - Where Legends Speak / Top Upcoming Boxing Matches You Cannot Afford to Miss

Top Upcoming Boxing Matches You Cannot Afford to Miss

Top upcoming boxing matches!

Fact checked by: Mike Goodpaster

A sport about determination, strength, tactics, and stamina, Boxing has carnal energy that drives sports enthusiasts to watch it with enthusiasm and a savage addiction. Boxers epitomize grandeur and power which has led many to legendary status over the years. Ali, Tyson, Holyfield are names enough to stir up memories of famous fights that have gone down in the history books with élan.

The very intense nature of boxing makes it a favourite sport with the betting community. It’s all about the mental and physical strength of the boxers before a fight, and that can often be predicted with some research. In the UK, there are various betting offers online that can help you pack the perfect punch while sitting at home and watching a bout with your mates, cheering for an eventful fight. Here are the four boxing matches you need to watch over the next two months.

Amir Khan v Samuel Vargas

This welterweight fight is going to take place on September 8, 2018, at the Birmingham Arena in the UK. The “second city” of England will witness Khan as he finds his feet back in the sport after returning from a two-year gap. He returned to the ring in April this year when he beat Phil Lo Greco in a sensational 40-second knockout.

He is pumped up with a drive and eagerness to make the world notice him again.

However, Vargas is a much stronger competitor than Greco and Khan has his work cut out for him. With a shot at the world title in sight, Khan will nevertheless be focused only on making his victory against Vargas as memorable as his previous fight.

This kind of focus may well tip the odds very clearly in his favour but this match is still way too close to call as we effectively have a proven champion going up against a hungry upstart. Keep this in mind when looking at any odds given for this match.

Gennady Golovkin v Saul Alvarez

Just like their controversial draw last September, planning a rematch between Gennady Golovkin and Saul Alvarez was a complicated affair. A first rematch was to take place in May, but after failing drug tests, Alvarez had to bail out of that fight. Golovkin is the current WBC and WBA middleweight champion and has a lot more to lose, which makes him the one to look out for in this fight.

This is the sort of match that’s a dream to bet on if you’re looking for a safer, rather than high-risk-high-reward, bet. Between Golovkin’s proven brilliance in the ring and Alvarez’s troubled last few months, Golovkin is as close to a sure thing as you can find.

George Groves v Callum Smith

King Abdullah Sports City, Saudi Arabia will witness one of the most highly anticipated fights of the season as these two megastars fight for glory and the WBA title. This is going to be Smith’s first attempt at a world title, making him a dangerous contender for Groves. In addition to this, both sportsmen will have their sights on the Muhammad Ali Trophy which will undoubtedly prove to be the icing on the cake.

Groves may be the safer bet but this sort of high-stakes match often throws a few curve balls in terms of odds. Proceed with extreme caution when betting on this match but understand that the payouts for a winning bet can be huge on so major a bout.

Shawn Porter v Danny Garcia

A contest of words has already started between these two sides, much before the scheduled fight on September 8, 2018. In a recent podcast, Porter talked about his training and studies in detail but most importantly how eagerly he is awaiting the welterweight category fight, the winner of which will walk away with the WBC title.

As to which fighter to bet on, the odds are fairly split between the two as they are fairly even-matched with both displaying intense dedication to winning this particular fight. Keeping a keen eye on both before putting any money down on them in the days leading up to the big fight can make all the difference.

With so many more spectacular fights scheduled around the world in these months, online betting is the perfect way to play your hand and make these dramatic energy-filled events a lot more exciting!
