This Week in Combat Sports: Boxing Championship Fight Picks, UFC Rochester Predictions, and Previews

By in MMA on

This week in combat sports… Rick Rockwell gives you his betting tips and picks for three major events this weekend. First, he and Drew Goldfarb go over the World Boxing Super Series in Scotland. Is there any betting potential anywhere on that card, or is it just a good show to watch?

In the second boxing card of the weekend, the WBC Heavyweight Championship is on the line. Rick and Drew break down the bout between champion Deontay Wilder and challenger Dominic Breazeale. The moneyline is pretty lopsided, with the champion the heavy favorite, but there are still wagers available that Rick believes have good potential.

In MMA, no Bellator action this weekend, though UFC is running in New York State. UFC: Rochester features a headline fight between Rafael dos Anjos and Kevin Lee. There has been some movement on the betting line for this fight but, at the moment, each fighter lists at -115 on a moneyline bet. Is this the fight that Rick is most looking forward to on the card?

Make sure to watch the video at the top of this page for all of that and more, and check out more of Rick’s work including breakdowns of the complete fight cards for each of the shows discussed in the video at
