Boxing looks to be over it’s first initial hurdle post-pandemic.

Top Rank’s two shows last Tuesday and Thursday were, on the face of it, a success, with nine fights inside the MGM’s “Bubble” signalling a triumphant return.

Critics will highlight the fairly shoddy viewing figures in the USA, coupled with Mikaela Mayer’s cancelled fight due to a dubious COVID-19 test, but all in all, the foundation has now been set.

Top Rank continue to blaze the trail this week with another three shows on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday evenings.

Freebets.co.uk will be here to guide you towards the action with the best news, tips and predictions for all the big fights coming from the United States this week.

Big news of the week

There can be little doubt who stole the show this week: Adam Lopez and Luis Coria. The pair of lively, durable featherweights went to war on Thursday evening for the vacant NABF featherweight title, with Lopez edging a majority decision victory in a real slug-fest.

There were more than 1,400 punches traded between the pair of up-and-comers, stealing the headlines off of Jessie Magdaleno in the main event who won via DQ against Yenifel Vicente.

Magdaleno was hit with three low blows in a bizarre contest which was eventually ended prematurely in the tenth round after persistent rule-breaking from the underdog.

Magdaleno will now be looking to move forwards to a potential world title shot in the featherweight division, with Top Rank also promoting WBO champion Shakur Stevenson who fought on Tuesday evening.

Stevenson eased to a comfortable sixth round TKO over Felix Caraballo without really breaking a sweat.

The former Olympic silver medalist displayed fierce body work to the challenger in a catch-weight fight up at 130 pounds.

Whether Stevenson will vacate his title and move up to super-featherweight is one of the hottest discussion points at the moment as boxing clambers back to its feet.

Away from the ring, this week saw news break regarding a possible heavyweight unification fight between Anthony Joshua and Tyson Fury.

Eddie Hearn (Joshua’s promoter) and Fury took to social media separately to announce that terms have been agreed for a two-fight deal in 2021.

Call me a cynic, but with Deontay Wilder and Kubrat Pulev still standing in the way, no venue confirmed, no dates confirmed and nothing exactly signed, this “breaking news” is just another PR stunt to keep the heavyweights relevant during this period of nothingness.

Fighter to look at this week – Jose Pedraza

Despite dropping losses in two of his last three, Pedraza (26-3) still looks confident that he has plenty to offer up at 140 pounds.

A weight migration north of current super-lightweight champions could see a few belts vacated over the next 12 months, with “Sniper” well-versed in grabbing trinkets throughout his amateur and pro career.

LesPierre looked completely out of his depth against Mo Hooker last year, and despite operating as a portsider he probably won’t cause the Puerto Rican many problems at the age of 35.

Fight of the week – Joshua Greer Jr vs Mike Plania

Greer Jr’s (22-1-1) got himself a much softer touch than his previously scheduled meeting with Jason Moloney.

The American has looked vulnerable in his last two step-ups and doesn’t appear to possess the power at bantam to bomb his way out of trouble.

Plania is by no means a puncher, either, but if he can swarm the favourite he’s got a real chance at pinching some rounds. I’m not saying the dog will bite hard enough to get the win in this one, but it won’t be a shutout.

I’d be shocked to see anything but a Greer Jr. win on the scorecards here after 10 interesting rounds.
