Natasha Jonas v Mikaela Mayer Tips

Natasha Jonas 'By Decision' @ 20/21

So, we start off with the headline bout in Liverpool this weekend as Natasha Jonas puts her super-welterweight title on the line against former super-featherweight world title holder Mikaela Mayer.

This is a really good fight between two naturally lighter fighters who have moved up the ranks in recent times.

I feel that size could be a factor this weekend, which is why I am going to be edging on the side of Jonas, given that she has been fighting at this higher weight for a significantly longer time than Mayer, who has just the one fight at this weight under her belt.

Jonas, of course, has home field advantage too, which will also benefit her in those close rounds.

Speaking of close rounds, this is a close fight, and I fully expect it to go the full distance, with Jonas just out-pointing her American rival, an outcome that is priced up at 20/21.

Jack Cullen v Zak Chelli Tips

Zak Chelli 'By Decision' @ 4/1

On the undercard on Saturday night we see the rematch between Jack Cullen and Zak Chelli with the British and Commonwealth super-middleweight titles on the line.

Now, of course, we saw a controversial draw in the initial bout at Fight Camp a couple of years ago, a result that was hugely controversial at the time given that many people, myself included, felt that Chelli had done more than enough to pick up the victory.

That was four years ago though and a lot of water has passed under the bridge since then, with both fighters moving on in their careers, picking up wins and suffering losses.

Cullen, the defending champion, is the narrow favourite here, but Chelli is always a live underdog, which is why, given that this is a 50/50 fight for me, the value lies with Chelli.

He had that big win over Anthony Sims Jr last year as an underdog, and I just feel that the 4/1 on offer for him to edge this fight via the scorecards is a touch too wide.

Remember the first fight was close and it ended in draw, and you can get 14/1 on history repeating itself in Liverpool this weekend.
