28-2 with 20 knockouts, Joseph Parkers hopes to put himself into position for a title fight. Neither Tyson Fury nor Anthony Joshua wants to battle each other just yet.

Boxing Betting Pick: Shawndell Winters
WBC Flyweight Title – 12 Rounds
17-0 Jay Harris battles 15-1 Julio Cesar Martinez for the WBC Flyweight Title on Saturday. Harris has fought in England. That might put him at a disadvantage here. Martinez’s loss happened back on Oct. 16, 2015. Since then, he’s fought great. Back Julio Cesar to get it done.
Boxing Betting Pick: Julio Cesar Martinez
WBA Junior Bantamweight – 12 Rounds
In the second championship fight on DAZN’s Saturday card, Chocolatito throws down against Kal Yafai. Roman Gonzalez is 48-2 with 40 knockouts. He faces a tough customer in Yafai on Saturday night. Yafai is 26-0. But the 30-year-old, like Harris, is a UK fighter. Those boxers tend to have issues with inside specialists like Gonzalez and Martinez. Chocolatito gets the win.
Boxing Betting Pick: Roman Gonzalez
