Interesting Boxing Bets to Consider

Two interesting bets to consider for Anthony Joshua vs Joseph Parker

For a long time, the heavyweight boxing division was in the doldrums. It was being dominated by the Klitschko brothers who basically just destroyed any of the mediocre competition they came up against, with Andre Ward sweeping up any other stragglers in the light heavyweight division. Ward always seemed like he could do it consistently at heavyweight but has only recently made the step up.

So in essence we had two dominant figures with so average or ok fighters like David Haye and Nikolai Valuev picking up wins, and occasionally belts, but it was always clear that no one could really touch the Klitschko brothers. When you consider some of the classic fights that have happened over the years, like Ali vs Frazier, Lewis vs Tyson and more, you realise just how long its been since we had some really amazing heavyweight clashes. There have been some that have been interesting but it has been rare to see two fighters in their prime go toe to toe.

Now though, the division seems to be getting much better and there are some really superb fights coming up with fighters like Tyson Fury waiting in the wings for a super fight of his own. Anthony Joshua has quickly emerged as the belle of the ball, the golden boy of the division and that is shown in his being ranked as ring magazine’s best heavyweight. In at number three in those rankings, is his opponent in his next fight, Joseph Parker, who he will take on in Cardiff on the 31st of March. Both fighters are young, both are in the prime of their careers and neither has lost a single fight.

This has meant there is a great deal of excitement and hype around the fight, there is so much excitement with many people looking forward to a clash for the ages. It has the bookmakers excited too, they know it will be a good night for betting, with a lot of interest. Therefore there are lots of Joshua Parker free bets in order to attract people who are on the fence about placing a bet. There are so many great options for betting on the fight that it can be hard to out where the best values lies. Here then are two tips to help you, two tips which could well win you some money and two tips which will hopefully allow you to take advantage of the free bets that are being offered on this fight.

Joshua to win

This tip is based on the fact that Joshua looks too good for Parker and because he will have the home crowd behind him. Joshua has always looked brilliant when fighting in Britain and just seem like he has a bit too much power and nous and will be able to take the fight to Parker and win it.

It to end in a knockout

If you want something a little more specific than just Joshua to win, then it makes sense to bet on it ending in a knockout, Joshua has won all twenty of his professional bouts by knockout while Parker has won eighteen of his twenty four fights the same way. I cannot see this one going all the way.
