Betting Tip: Germaine de Randamie to win by KO/TKO at 9/4 bet365

The newly conceived 145lb women’s featherweight division will see the former bantamweight champion Holly Holm take on dangerous Muay Thai striker Germaine de Randamie for this new belt in New York this weekend.

It promises to be a high level stand up battle between two of the most decorated stand up martial artists in the world.  The online bookmakers are finding it difficult to split this pair, with Holly Holm a general even money shot and the Dutch challenger a top price of 10/11 with both BetBright and Stan James.

The problem facing Holly Holm, based at least on her last fight with Valentina Shevchenko, is her seeming inability to commit to her punches. Holm is a seventeen time world boxing champion and as legit a female striker as it gets, but in her headline bout with the Ukrainian bantamweight title challenger she really struggled to find her range against similarly skilled opponent. It was ultimately her downfall that night in Chicago as she lost out to a unanimous decision.

Many experts believe, including her industry leading camp at the Jackson Wink Academy, that Holly Holm will be much stronger at this weight class, without having to ensure a draining cut to 135lb. But Germaine de Randamie is a world class, hungry and highly dangerous threat, who has been gifted an unbelievable opportunity here.

De Randamie has made no secret of her game plan to go out hard and finish Holm, backing her to pull that feat off at odds of 9/4 makes a fair degree of appeal.

In the co-main event, Anderson Silva can land a famous win over the powerful and hard-hitting Derrick Brunson. Brunson’s trouble is he leans and rushes forward when attacking and against Anderson Silva, even at 41-years old, that won’t end well for him.

Silva’s movement and counter attacking ability are legendary and he knows that another title shot is within reach. A statement win here would put him even closer.
