Written by on March 12, 2018

As we do every Monday, we are going to look ahead to the big fights around the boxing betting action that are on the calendar over the next week, and it has to be said that this week is a little busier than most. We have no less than 6 different title fights set to go over the next few days, with bouts in Japan and the US on tap. We will take a closer look at each of these boxing odds, making some big predictions as we go. Let’s get started with a big fight night in Japan, which will take place on Thursday.

Top Boxing Betting Picks of the Week – March 12th Edition

Daigo Higa vs. Cristofer Rosales

Higa will be out to defend his WBC World Flyweight Title, which he has had no problem doing since winning the belt. His last defense was a first-round KO of Moises Fuentes, taking his career record to 15-0, with all those wins coming via KO. Rosales comes in with a 26-3 career record that includes 17 KO wins. Higa has been untouchable in his career to this point and I don’t see that changing here.

Ganigan Lopez vs. Ken Shiro

This one is for the WBC Light Flyweight Title, which is currently held by Shiro. This will be the second defense of the title for the champion, who comes into this one with an unbeaten 12-0 record, with half of those wins coming via KO. Lopez is a 35-year old journeyman fighter with a career record of 28-7, with 17 KO. Veteran fighters always tend to be tougher to take out but Shiro should have no problem defending his title here.

Ryota Murata vs. Emanuel Felice Blandamura

The third fight on the Japanese card is a WBA World Middleweight Title fight, where Murata will be defending his title for the second time. Murata is 13-1 with 10 KO wins, while the challenger comes into this bout with a career record of 27-2 and only 5 KO wins. Blandamura does not possess much in the way of finishing power, which is going to hurt him in this one. Murata wins by KO.

Juan Ruiz vs. Sammy Valentin

This fight is for the vacant WBO Latino Welterweight Title, and it will go on Friday night in Tampa, Florida. These two fighters seem to be evenly matched, although it is Valentin who had been more powerful in his career, going 13-1 with 10 KO wins.Sammy Valentin should be one of your Boxing Betting Picks for this week.Ruiz comes in at 20-1 with 12 KO wins, so both men do have a shot at finishing this one early. My money is on Valentin in what should be a good fight.

Amir Imam vs. Jose Carlos Ramirez

It’s a Saturday fight night at MSG in New York City, with a pair of title fights on the card. This one is for the vacant WBC Super Lightweight Title. Imam comes in with a record of 18-1 with 15 KO wins, while Ramirez has a career record of 21-0 with 16 KO wins. This should be a fun one to watch, but I am looking at Ramirez to come out on top and take the title.

Oleksandr Gvodzyk vs. Mehdi Amar

Our final fight this week is on the same card as the fight listed above and is for the interim WBC World Light Heavyweight title. Gvodzyk has proven to be a bit of a beast in his career, going 14-0 with 12 KO wins to this point. He will be up against Amar, a fighter sporting a 34-5 career record that features 16 KO wins. Another good fight here, but I am going with Gvodzyk as my boxing betting pick.
