Top Boxing Betting Picks of the Week – December 4th
Claressa Shields (7-0, 2 KOs) vs. Femke Hermans (9-1, 3 KOs)
- 10 rounds, for Shields’ IBF/WBA/WBC Women’s Middleweight Title
PredictionFemke Hermans is no doubt, a gifted fighter in her own right, but she’s not going to beat the clearly superior Claressa Shields in this contest, particularly with Shields looking to set a mega-fight against undisputed women’s welterweight world champion Cecilia Braekhus. “I’m so excited to be fighting live on HBO and to share the stage with Cecilia Braekhus on Dec. 8,” said Shields, who held unified belts at super middleweight before vacating to drop down to middleweight. “It’s a great step forward for women’s boxing to have the two best female fighters in the world on the same card on worldwide television.” Yeah, there’s pretty much no way that Claressa Shields loses this bout. I like her in a unanimous decision win over Hermans. Boxing Betting Pick: Claressa Shields Via Unanimous decision.
Vasiliy Lomachenko (11-1, 9 KOs) vs. Jose Pedraza (25-1, 12 KOs)
- 12 rounds, WBA/WBO lightweight unification
