Two stars are part of a cracking week of boxing this weekend. The whole world may have their eyes on Mayweather v McGregor the sport never stops for Betting Tip Stars and we don’t take our eye off the ball. Adrian Broner and Carl Frampton.
Adrien Broner vs Mikey Garcia
Adrian Broner was one of the most exciting prospects in the sport. He was often viewed as the best boxers in the world. Broner has fallen off the rails over the last few years with run-ins with the law causing significant issues and World title fights never fully grasped.
At 27 he is in his physical prime and there is also plenty of time to redeem himself. Currently with a record 33-2, 24Kos he faces Mikey Garcia. Gacia may be unbeaten but he is also going up a significant weight which could result in a bit of a shock in power.
Broner has had his trouble with weight and has failed to make it before. He will lose $500,000 if that occurs again in New York.
Surprisingly despite this physical advantage, Broner finds himself in the surprising position of being an underdog.
I don’t care about being the underdog because at the end of the day, man, I don’t make no (sic) money off that, he said.
They’re some gambling people, man. They’re some people in Vegas, man. It’s okay though. I bet they won’t do it again after this fight.
Broner is at 3/1 to win while Garci is favourite 1/3 via Sporting Bet . This is a great opportunity to make some cash and Broner is likely to return to form just in time to win you some monies!
Frampton vs Gutierrez
Carl Frampton is fighting Andre Gutierrez in his hometown of Belfast. He will be hoping this hometown advantage and a roaring fan base will get him pumped up for the big night. This is a WBC world featherweight title eliminator.
Frampton is now aged 30 and has insinuated this could be the start to the wind-down of his career. While this might appear to you as a show of his effort in a final few fight for me it puts him in danger of already looking into the future. Once you take your eye off for a second the other man has the upper hand. Frampton has shown his true feelings and it doesn’t bode well for the fight. Home advantage might sway it though.
Andres Gutierrez is not only significantly younger at 26 but has also had more fights than the Ulsterman. That is a double advantage with a younger body and also experience advantage. The more you analyse this fight the more it seems that Frampton will have to overcome.
One motivator for him is the prospect of his next opponent as perhaps being Gary Russell Jr. The king of WBC.
Gutierrez is taking on his first travelling from North America and Belfast is certainly a cauldron to come in.
Look Frampton is the favourite and rightly so with the calibre of his names but while he looks ahead and enjoys odds as favourable as 1/41 this could be a potential banana skin the bookmakers just haven’t seen. I wouldn’t bet my house on it but this fight has the potential to make my mouth waters with pound signs in my eyes. This always makes a fight more exciting!
