OKBET Boxing Tips News
Our OKBET Boxing Tips Matt Gipon predicted some exciting activity on both sides of the Atlantic. There has been a lot of focus on boxing in recent weeks for all the wrong reasons, but the abundance of pugilism this weekend has the potential to get people talking for the right reasons.
Claressa Shields and Savannah Marshall headline the rescheduled fight for all the titles at the O2 in London, while Michaela Mayer and Alycia Baumgartner compete to be undisputed on the undercard. Deontay Wilder returns to the ring in America to fight Robert Helenius, while in Australia, Devin Haney and George Kambosos battle for the lightweight title on Sunday.
10 p.m. : SHIELDS vs. MARSHALL – MARSHALL WINNING BY POINTS OR DECISION
We had to wait a few weeks for this fight because the original event was cancelled out of respect for Queen Liz, but it’s finally here, and all four middleweight titles, as well as an honorary “Elizabethan” belt from one of the dishonourable sanctioning bodies at OKBET Boxing Tips, are on the line for this massive fight on Saturday night.
Shields, the self-proclaimed “GWOAT,” has two Olympic gold medals and world crowns in three weight classes, but the really astounding fact is that she has only ever lost one bout dating back to childhood – and that was to Marshall as an amateur in 2012. The Brit has won as an amateur and a professional, but the fierce rivalry stems from that one-of-a-kind victory.
Both fighters are undefeated in 12 professional fights, with Claressa holding three-quarters of the 160-pound title and Savannah holding the remaining piece. But it’s their KO rates that stand out: the high volume, pressure-fighting American has only stopped two opponents, whilst Hartlepool’s rangey puncher has KO’d ten at OKBET Boxing.
Shields has dabbled in MMA in recent years in search of a meaningful challenge, so the five-week delay will have given her even more time to prepare, but I believe Marshall is at the top of her game right now. It’s going to be tight, and I believe it will reach the distance, but I’m picking the home fighter to win.
9 p.m. : MAYOR VS. BAUMGARDNER – MAYOR BY POINTS OR DECISION
Shields and Marshall have a tense relationship at OKBET Boxing Tips, but Mayer and Baumgartner have traded jabs as well. Last month, the two featherweight world champions almost collided at a pre-fight news conference when a handshake became too tight, so I’m sure they’ll be kept apart until fight night this time.
It’s another fight between excellent fighters, and it’s sure to be a close one. Mayer is recognized for her workrate, size, speed, and class, while Baumgartner is the power puncher who earned her championships by destroying Terri Harper of Yorkshire.
I believe Mikaela will win the bulk of the rounds, but Alycia has the potential to finish it with one shot, but with two minute rounds in women’s boxing, the KO is unlikely. After the final whistle, Mayer should walk away with three championships and bragging rights at OKBET.
SUNDAY, 3 a.m. : WILDER VS. HELENIUS – WILDER TO WIN IN ROUNDS 3-4
It’s been a year since Wilder was defeated for the third bout by Tyson Fury, but the ‘Bronzer Bomber’ wants another shot at big money battles. The ‘Nordic Nightmare’ Helenius at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn comes first.
Helenius of Finland is a seasoned fighter who was an established European titleholder in 2011 when he won a controversial decision over Dereck Chisora, but he was thoroughly outboxed by Dillian Whyte in 2017. Helenius has been in fantastic form recently, winning his previous three fights by KO.
Helenius’ issue is that he’s chinny at OKBET Boxing Tips, and it’s just a matter of time until Wilder explodes. Deontay may take some time to figure out his seasoned opponent, but I don’t think it will be long – I believe Wilder will be chanting ‘Bomb Squad’ before the fight has even reached the halfway mark.
SUNDAY, 4 a.m. : HANEY vs. KAMBOSOS JR. – HANEY TO WIN IN ROUNDS 7-12
Haney is the man in the lightweight class; he defeated Kambosos in June for all three belts, which had been seized from Teofimo Lopez last year, and it was Lopez who unified the division by defeating Vasyl Lomachenko in 2020. Haney outclassed Kambosos only a few months ago, and the rematch is unnecessary, but that’s OKBET boxing tips.
The Australian has home advantage once again, but his best opportunity is a puncher’s chance. Kambosos possesses power, but he’s only stopped one of his previous six opponents, and Haney has shown that he can be wobbled but has never been downed.
The key issue is not whether Haney will win, but rather how. The American hasn’t scored an early victory since 2019 at OKBET, and his detractors claim he’d rather win safely than spectacularly, but Kambosos is going to put everything on the line on Sunday, and I can see the corner or referee ending the fight late.
- Claressa Shields vs. Savannah Marshall, 10 p.m. – Marshall by Points Or Decision
