Andre Dirrell v Jose Uzcategui - Winner
I know I haven't written for a while but I have compiled a few boxing tips for the weekend. Most of them are coming in the UK but I have added two from the USA.
There are few fights that I have left alone but I highlighted some matches above. There isn't any outstanding value although the Jose Uzcategui @6/1 is worth some money.
Most casual boxing fans will be familiar with Andre Dirrell after he fought and lost very close decisions to James Degale and Carl Froch. Uzcategui is a crude fighter and carries power which could cause problems to the ageing Dirrell. Dirrell had the potential to be one of the best boxers of the last generation but it has proven he will take the easy way out when the going gets tough. Worth a quid or two.
First up is Barrett and he is fighting a man (Eusebio Osejo) who has recently drew with some top fighters (ex World Champ Kiko Martinez and Evgeny Gradovich). I would be very surprised if Barrett wins by KO! Best bet here is the points win.
Daniel Dubois has been labelled the new Anthony Joshua and he should make short work of 6'8 David Howe. Howe has been drilled in rounds 1&2 by Dave Allen and Nathan Gorman but I expect him to be flattened in round 1!
Ryan Walsh is the best value here. He is fighting Marco McCullough who has been on the receiving end of some KO's. Walsh knocked out another NI person very recently (James Tennyson) and I anticipate him doing the same.
Terrence Crawford is labelled the future of boxing along with Gervonta Davis and Anthony Joshua. He is fighting a tough South American with a great amateur pedigree. Felix Diaz was unlucky not to get the decision in his only loss to Lamont Peterson (who beat Amir Khan) but I expect a late stoppage for Crawford before he moves up to welterweight.
