Big Boxing Acca: 6/1, featuring Tyson Fury, Roman Gonzalez and Troy Williamson
There’s enough action to keep any kind of boxing fan interested this weekend.
From 60,000 fans inside the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium to two of the very best “little men” in the world lacing them up in the wee hours of Sunday morning – the sport has you covered.
We’re taking our chances on a Boxing Acca across the three main headline fights this weekend. Let’s take a closer look at this 6/1 shot.
Troy Williamson to beat Josh Kelly by KO/TKO or Disqualification
This scrap for the British super-welterweight title is a pure “fiddy-fiddy”.
Both guys are priced at 5/6 with bet365 to win this contest, but we are favouring the more powerful, in-form fighter in Troy Williamson.
Josh Kelly – a former Olympic medalist – had the world at his feet until getting stopped petty convincingly by David Avanesyan in 2021.
Since then, two comeback fights against underwhelming opponents have failed to convince us that Kelly is ready to jump back up into a fight of this magnitude.
Williamson is unbeaten in 20 fights and has 14 KOs on his ledger.
The County Durham fighter has had a more traditional climb towards the British title and we feel he has the arsenal to overwhelm Kelly in this fight and register a stoppage win.
Tyson Fury to beat Dereck Chisora by KO/TKO or Disqualification
Let’s be frank: this fight shouldn’t be happening.
It’s the trilogy that nobody asked for – Tyson Fury should be operating at a much higher level than against someone he has already beaten twice and has 12 losses on his record.
Chisora has been stumbling towards retirement for a few years now but is reluctant to throw the towel in on a bruising career.
The Londoner has lost three of his last four fights and on Saturday night it will be four in five.
Chisora should get stopped in the middle rounds as he heads home with a tasty pay-slip.
Roman Gonzalez to beat Juan Francisco Estrada
Roman Gonzalez and Juan Francisco Estrada were made for each other.
The pair of multi-weight world champions are 1-1 going into this rubber bout, contesting the WBC world super-flyweight title.
Both men are edging towards the end of their careers and on recent form, we edge the Nicaraguan, Roman Gonzalez, to get the job done.
Since their last meeting in March 2021, Gonzalez looked superb against a dangerous Julio Cesar Martinez, while Estrada edged a nervy victory over the lesser known Argi Cortes in Mexico.
This fight will no doubt be a barn-burner, but we expect Gonzalez to have that little more left in the tank.
