Tebbutt's Tips: Including Robbie Davies Jr, Tony Yoka & Dan Azeez shouts

Our resident boxing tipster previews another stacked weekend of world-class Boxing and highlights where he feels the betting value could be found across five of the biggest bouts.

Diego Pacheco (1/20) v Jack Cullen (9/1)
Super-middleweight bout

Ok, and starting off this weekend in Liverpool, Diego Pacheco squares off against ‘Little Lever’s Meat Cleaver’ Jack Cullen.

I’m expecting a good fight; Pacheco is one of the biggest prospects in world boxing, and I expect him to win, and win well.

I do expect Cullen, with his experience at this level, to extend the fight, and like the look of ‘Over 4.5 Rounds’ at 4/5, and I also expect Pacheco to take his time in this fight – so possibly a victory by Decision at 9/2, which I feel should be a tad shorter than that, could carry a lot of value.

Tebbutt’s Tip

My play for this fight will be for the fight to last ‘Over 4.5 Rounds’, which as I say is 4/5.

Robbie Davies Jr (1/5) v Darragh Foley (10/3)
Super-lightweight bout

Next up, Robbie Davies Jr returns in front of his home crowd in Liverpool as he takes on late replacement, the Irish-Australian, Darragh Foley.

I’m expecting a close fight – Davies Jr didn’t fight as well as we know he can in his last outing against Molina, and as is the case with all of these last minute replacements, there is always the potential of a banana skin.

That said, I do feel Robbie Davies Jr will emerge victories – I like the look of him to win by on points which is available at Even-Money.

Tebbutt’s Tip

Robbie Davies Jr to beat Darragh Foley by ‘Decision or Technical Decision’, at Even-Money.

Tony Yoka (1/7) v Carlos Takam (4/1)
Heavyweight bout

Over in France we have BOXXER’s latest card which is headlined by the Olympic Gold medallist Tony Yoka, who takes on Carlos Takam.

The Frenchman will make his first appearance back in the ring since his surprising loss to martin Bakole late last year against a rugged, durable and experienced fighter in Takam.

I think that Yoka, on the back of that fight where he was beaten up by Bakole, will feel his way into this fight, and although Takam was stopped by Joe Joyce last year, is still a decent campaigner at this level.

I think Yoka will be a little cagey and tentative given what happened in his last fight, and as a consequence I see him getting a victory by ‘Decision’, at 11/10, after going the full 12 rounds

Tebbutt’s Tip

A tentative and edgy affair, which I feel Yoka will win by ‘Decision or Technical Decision’, at 11/10.

Thomas Faure (15/2) v Dan Azeez (1/16)
European light-heavyweight title

Up next on the undercard in France, Dan Azeez looks to add the European light-heavyweight title to his ever-growing collection of straps against Thomas Faure.

Usually, with Azeez, I look for him to win in the second half of his fights – three of his last four bouts have ended in that period, between rounds seven and 12.

But something about this fight makes me think that he is going to get the job done slightly earlier than that – Faure hasn’t really boxed anywhere near the type of level expected from a European champion.

Azeez has been active – fighting three times in the last 12 months – whereas Faure hasn’t fought since January last year, and I think that sustained inactivity together with Azeez’s progression will see him secure an early stoppage – between ‘Rounds 1 – 6’ which can be backed at 13/8, but I also like the look of the 7/4 on offer for ‘Rounds 5 – 8’.

Tebbutt’s Tip

Given what I have said, my plays for this fight would be Azeez between ‘Rounds 1 – 6’ at 13/8 or between ‘Rounds 5 – 8’ at 7/4.
