The betting table presented below is from some top online boxing betting sites.
The first question boxing fans ask is just what the heck is going on with the Heavyweight Division? It is a division set for fighters just above the weight of 200 pounds. The Heavyweight limit is none so boxers do not have to worry about making weight. Usually, most fighters move up ultimately to the heavyweight division as they have a tougher time staying around the light heavyweight or cruiserweight classes.
The key word is going here. Now, the problem for Trevor Bryan is that most do not respect him as the WBA regular champion. So, the mere fact that Bryan won a title because a champion had been deemed inactive too long is odd but that happened. The confusion lies in the fact that there are still regular, interim, and supertitles. Bryan defended his title in January and won via split decision. That allowed Bryan to keep the WBA heavyweight belt.
Besides those belts, Oleksander Usyk holds the IBF, WBA (super), and WBO belts after beating Anthony Joshua last September. The Ukrainian eagerly is waiting as Father Time waits for no one. After all, he is 35, and the two combatants in this fight are 32 (Bryan) and 24 respectively (Dubois).
The heavyweight division is still a division that harbours a little bit of chaos. While no one truly knows what Tyson Fury is going to do next, the winner of this Daniel Dubois-Trevor Bryan fight elevates themselves in the division. Basically, this fight hopefully gets us close to an undisputed title bout. Dubois sees his numbers still shortening as the heavyweight boxing favorite.
Now, the emphasis is, that this heavyweight fight is a stepping stone. The problem is because Usyk has to fight Joshua first (mandatory rematch), any next bout may not take place until 2023 at this juncture. For Dubois, that may or may not be a problem. The bigger problem may be Usyk who again does not even have a scheduled fight date for that said rematch.
Daniel Dubois’ biggest issue may be that wait only. Does he ultimately have to fight someone else to stay active in the wake of a potential Usyk fight? That is a question perhaps for a later time. This is because, first, the British heavyweight has to take care of business later on Saturday night versus Trevor Bryan.
This is where the Boxing Odds arguments begin. Naturally, no one quite knows what will happen in this fight because truthfully no one really knows. The hint that even a fighter like Dubois could “quit” is a rather interesting albeit unfounded twist on the surface.
It is easy to see why Daniel Dubois remains a big favorite. Bettors do not seem enamoured with Bryan at all to be honest. Is Dubois ready to rumble here? That is a frank, yet valid question.
Therefore, Dubois has not been that quiet about his training as that is just how the challenger is. The expectation is to see a more focused fighter at first. Then, the boxer should be able to unleash his power and combinations on Bryan. Dubois is 17-1 with 16 knockouts for a reason. He did get caught by Jo Joyce (broken orbital bone in that fight). Again, it is that jab defense that is a question for the 24-year-old pugilist.
The fighter looks ready and focused to get this bout going already. Dubois looks to have improved that defense issue. This is why he is our heavyweight boxing picks choice for this fight.
With the bout coming up Saturday, the heavyweight top online Vegas boxing odds are out and they favor Whyte even less. Trevor Bryan comes in around +700 currently, while Fury may even go well beyond -1000 (-1250 in some books) at this point. Despite some concerns about COVID, this fight is ready to go on June 11th.
Unfortunately, there are zero previous histories between these two fighters. Part of that is probably due to their age. Bryan is 32 while Dubois is 24. It seems hard to believe but that is true. Bryan comes in with a record of 22-0 with 15 knockouts. He won his previous fight by a split decision. The SD versus Jonathan Guidry raised some eyebrows as some argued that Guidry may have won that fight. That being said, Bryan fired off this comment.
The dilemma for Bryan may be an asset too. As this heavyweight fight approaches, all the talk and the bravado goes away the instant he hits Dubois or Dubois hits him. Either way, Dubois does have the ability to hurt Bryan significantly. Also, Bryan has some acumen to potentially hurt Dubois. The power is on Dubois’ side. Does Bryan have the heart and fire to triumph?
For heavyweight boxing picks, our prime bet is choosing Daniel Dubois for his power.
The heavyweight boxing odds say take Dubois to win the bout on June 11th and a KO in nine rounds or less.
