The boxing schedule ramps up to its very best this weekend with Las Vegas and Dublin taking centre stage.
But will experience trump youth? Or will the whipper-snappers have the edge in two titanic battles either side of the Atlantic?
We’ve been lured in by the temptation of the underdog this weekend and thrown together a delicious 7/1 ‘Big Boxing Double’.
Take a look at the legs below:
Chantelle Cameron to beat Katie Taylor (Saturday 20 May, 22:00)
Saturday night marks Katie Taylor’s first professional fight in Ireland since turning over in 2016.
It’s amazing that it’s taken this long to bring one of the greatest female fighters of all time back to fight on home turf and it’ll be a concern for a few that the 36-year-old is now fighting past her peak.
Taylor is unbeaten as a pro enjoying a 22-0 record, but is jumping up to light-welterweight this weekend in an undisputed vs undisputed champion clash against Chantelle Cameron.
Cameron is 31 herself and at 17-0 has somewhat gone under the radar in British boxing.
But Saturday night opens up the opportunity for Cameron to burst from Taylor’s shadows and start her reign as the top dog in the women’s game.
Taylor has been run close a few times recently – most notably by Amanda Serrano – and the size advantage Cameron will have over the Irish fighter could prove the difference maker.
There is no doubt that these two will trade for a majority of the scheduled 24 minutes, and we fancy the more bruising stuff to come from the away fighter.
Cameron is fighting at her peak and the fact she was so willing to make this fight underlines how confident she is of handing Taylor her first L.
Vasyl Lomachenko to beat Devin Haney (Sunday 21 May, 05:00)
Devin Haney is a simple yet extremely effective boxer.
That’s not a criticism in the slightest.
The undisputed lightweight champion is a slick boxer and mover, unafraid to dabble in some of the dark arts, while using his size to full advantage in the lightweight division.
He is 29-0 for a reason, but the challenge of the future Hall-of-Famer Vasyl Lomachenko might be one of his trickiest yet.
Lomachenko has won it all in the sport but is still punching above his weight with the 135-pounders aged 35.
The Ukrainian has a unique offence based on pivots, feints and precise shot selection and has only been beaten when his opponent – usually oversized – has been able to back him up.
Will Haney manage that this weekend? Maybe. But we fancy the Loma of old to roll back the years and solve the puzzle of Haney as the American struggles to pin down the quicker man.
Lomachenko from the southpaw stance should be slippery enough to negate the one-dimensional attacks of Haney and win enough rounds to ask a question of the judges.
