Edwards vs. Campos – OVO Wembley Arena, Wembley, London (DAZN)

  • When: Saturday, June 10, 2023. 2:00pm ET.

Nina Hughes vs. Katie Healy // WBA World Female Bantamweight Title

Based on her record, Katie Healy has a shot. The underdog in this bout is 6-0. But although she’s undefeated, Healy has yet to fight against anyone close to Nina Hughes’ level.

Not only that, but Healy hasn’t won a single bout via stoppage even though she’s fought few opponents with winning records. Hughes is 5-0 with 2 technical knockout victories. Nina gets it done.

Boxing Betting Pick: Nina Hughes -588

Cherneka Johnson vs. Ellie Scotney // IBF World Female Super Bantamweight Title

Australian pugilist Cherneka Johnson has an excellent record. Johnson is 15-1. She’s won 6 of her bouts via stoppage, 1 victory came via straight up knockout and the other five arrived via technical knockout.

Favorite Ellie Scotney is 6-0. Scotney hasn’t won a bout via TKO or KO. Ellie is getting the benefit of the doubt because she’s thrown down against the better competition. Still, the odds make Johnson an attractive play.

Boxing Betting Pick: Cherneka Johnson +340

Rosario has a stunning 10-0 record. 2 victories came via knockout. The other happened via TKO. The slight favorite, Rosario beat Zach Hill via first round KO in his last.

Jan Carlos Rivera is 8-1. The loss happened in 2020 at the MGM Bubble during the pandemic versus Quinton Randall.

Randall was 6-0 then. Now, he’s 11-0-1. Rivera heads into this after winning his last two via TKO. For sure, Jan Carlos can pull off the upset.

Boxing Betting Pick: Jan Carlos Rivera +170

Josh Taylor vs. Teofimo Lopez | WBO Junior Welterweight Title

It’s rare to see Lopez enter the ring the underdog. But Teofimo hasn’t looked good in his last couple of fights. He struggled against George Kambosos in the loss and then got knocked down by Sandor Martin.

Josh Taylor is taller and will be the heavier man on fight night. Taylor should be able to keep Lopez at the end of his jab. When the underdog tries to close the distance, Taylor will land power punches. From every angle, Josh Taylor looks like the winner.

Boxing Betting Pick: Josh Taylor -200
