Weekend Boxing

The co-main event in Saudi features a man that could possibly be the next to climb into the heavyweight conversation - Jai Opetaia.

Almost two years on from taking the IBF cruiserweight title from Mairis Briedis, the duo are set to dance again with Briedis being out of action since.

At the start of 2025, Briedis will turn 40 and it’s hard to see the Latvian getting revenge over who could well be the current fighter with the highest ceiling.

Opetaia is 1/7 with bet365 to win the fight which is pretty unbackable, but it lengthens well to 8/11 if you fancy Briedis to be stopped for the first time in his career.

It wasn’t that long ago that Briedis was running around after Jake Paul dressed as Mario and singing him birthday songs, so I think we can be forgiven for assuming his whole heart might not be 100% the fight game – what better than a Saudi payday to send you off into retirement?

Briedis to win back his title is 9/2 with bet365 and is hard to justify backing with any conviction.

Further down the bill we’ve got the return of Sergey Kovalev as an 11/10 underdog with bet365 against Robin Sirwan Safar, and like myself, the bookies have thrown a few darts to the wall here in an attempt to see what sticks.

Kovalev is a shadow of his dominant best and crucially has had one fight since November 2019. Safar is a 4/6 favourite but without any big-fight experience it’s impossible to gauge his true level.

Saying that, a fit and healthy cruiserweight in the top 15 of an organisation’s rankings should probably have the capability to put Kovalev away at the 200-pound limit.

Safar to win via stoppage in this 10-rounder is 6/4 with bet365 and probably the best pick with a small uneducated stake.

Elsewhere, Frank Sanchez and Agit Kabayel put their 24-0 records on the line in order to throw their hats into the heavyweight title scene post Fury-Usyk.

Sanchez is the 4/9 favourite with bet365 here but I can’t see this fight catching fire, so a stake on the fight going the distance at 4/7 (-175) looks the most sensible if needs must.

It just feels like that ugly heavyweight fight that you see on undercards that goes on and on and on with nothing of note really happening.
