Boxing Betting Tips: Ricky Burns and Dillian Whyte

Share this on

Recommended Bets:

Ricky Burns will defend his WBA world super-lightweight title against Kiryl Relikh at the SSE Hydro complex in Glasgow on Friday night, 7th of October, live on Sky Sports 1.

The online bookmakers make Ricky Burns a solid 1/3 favourite to win the bout and defend his belt, with his challenger Kiryl Relikh trading as the 3/1 underdog.

Burns landed the belt to become a three-weight World champion at the same venue in May with a dominant eighth round stoppage win over Michele Di Rocco, adding the Super-Lightweight crown to his World titles at Super-Featherweight and Lightweight. The weight of momentum behind the Scot suggests he will be very difficult to beat in the main event.

The Coatbridge star meets the dangerous and unbeaten Belarusian who boasts a daunting record of 19 KO’s from 21 fights, and Burns expects a serious test as he looks to line up a superfight once he’s dealt with the 26-year old Relikh.

In becoming Scotland’s first three-weight world champion, Ricky Burns put his name among an exclusive list of fighters who took the same path to triple glory. Only four other fighters won their first world title at super-featherweight before moving up to reign at lightweight and super-lightweight, and you will see the Scot has followed in some famous footsteps with the likes of Hector Camacho, Julio Jesus Chavez, Oscar De La Hoya and Floyd Mayweather as the only others to achieve the same in their careers.

In terms boxing betting tips for this one, it’s a tough task. Relikh is no mug and Burns’ gameplan will revolve around boxing tight and out-striking his opponent rather than head-hunting for the finish. Bookmakers Ladbrokes are offering a top price of even money on Ricky Burns winning by decision, which looks a sensible option.

Also on the Sky Sports Fight Night card is Dillian Whyte who is a 2/5 chance with Paddy Power to KO/TKO Ian Lewison, which looks decent value.
