Three Mouthwatering Sports Betting Bouts We Could See Late In 2020!
2020 has the potential to be a great year for boxing. There have been some blockbuster showdowns which we have enjoyed over the opening few months and things could get even better as the year progresses.
Here is a look at three fights that are likely to happen at the back end of 2020!
Tyson Fury v Deontay Wilder III
The trilogy between Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder now looks likely to take place in October. There will be a lot at stake for these men in this fight.
Fury has the chance to take a step closer to a unification showdown with Anthony Joshua if he comes through successfully. That all-British affair may create the first undisputed heavyweight world champion since Lennon Lewis held all the major belts in 2000.
Wilder, on the other hand, will want to right the wrongs from the second fight with Fury. Given his power, the WBC champion will not be taking the Bronze Bomber lightly in this third contest. Given how dominant he was in their last showdown, Fury looks a great bet here to continue his unbeaten professional record.
The high-profile nature of this fight means that bookmakers will be vying to attract customers with sign up offers related to the fight near the time, so utilizing a site that has reviewed all the offers, such as www.sportsbettingcanada.org, is the best way to find value for your money.
Vasyl Lomachenko v Teofimo Lopez
Vasyl Lomachenko is arguably the biggest draw in boxing right now. The Ukrainian is hugely popular all over the world. Lomachenko holds both the WBA and WBO titles in the division so a clash with the IBF champion Teofimo Lopez would make a lot of sense in the near future.
A date in May was being discussed for the two men to meet at Madison Square Garden in New York. If a deal can be reached, it looks like that will be September at the very earliest. Lomachenko has lost just once since turning a professional and that was in his second fight where he went down to Orlando Salido, a full review of that fight can be read at www.si.com/boxing.
Lopez would prove a great challenge for the pound-for-pound number one and it would be a contest boxing fans would certainly look forward to later this year.
Dillian Whyte v Alexander Povetkin
Dillian Whyte and Alexander Povetkin are both on the fringe of another world title shot. Their fight later this year is the opportunity for the winner to meet one of the champions in the division. Whyte shared the ring with unified heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua back in December 2015 and although he lost that showdown, he did cause his fellow British boxer a few problems at the time, as you can read in the fight report at www.theguardian.com/sport.
Povetkin was also defeated by Joshua in September 2018 at Wembley Stadium. The former WBA (Regular) champion is 40 years old now so time is running out. He must beat Whyte to have a realistic chance of fighting for a major title again. The winner of this fight, which is set to take place in the UK, will likely be in line to face whoever comes out on top in the Joshua and Kubrat Pulev contest early in 2021.
Let’s hope all three of the above fights do go ahead and boxing fans are treated to some fireworks in the ring later this year.
