Dalton Smith v Jose Zepeda Tips

Dalton Smith - By Decision or Technical Decision @ 20/21

In Sheffield we see the return of unbeaten super-lightweight prospect Dalton Smith as he takes on the battle-hardened, former world title challenger Jose Zepeda.

This is a very interesting fight and a big step up for Smith when you consider the level of opposition he has faced in the past.

Zepeda is well-known to boxing fans around the world. A southpaw with a good left hand, he carries power, good boxing skills and he's very experienced.

It's a very good matchup. For me, this is a brave bit of matchmaking for Smith and his team; Zepeda is one of the best 140lbs fighters in recent years.

But Smith goes into it a decent favourite with bet365 at 3/10, while Zepeda is 5/2.

Zepeda had that brilliant fight with Ivan Baranchyk, where he was knocked down multiple times but managed to get back on his feet and win by stoppage. He's very, very tough and he's only been stopped legitimately once by Regis Prograis in 2022.

This is a fight that does carry some danger for Smith. Zepeda has power, with 27 knockouts from his 37 wins and he could be an attractive 13/2 to win by stoppage on Saturday night.

If you like Smith to win by stoppage in the second half of the fight, you can get odds of 9/2 on Smith to win between rounds 7-12.

For me, Zepeda's skill, experience and his punching power will be enough to keep him in their until the final bell so for me, my pick is Smith to win by decision at 20/21.
