David Benavidez vs Demetrius Andrade & Jermall Charlo v Jose Benavidez Jr Tips from Rob Tebbutt

Our resident boxing expert Rob Tebbutt looks ahead to this weekend's boxing action as Jermall Charlo gets set to make his long awaited in-ring return and David Benavidez faces Demetrius Andrade.

David Benavidez (-400) vs Demetrius Andrade (+300)

"The Mexican Monster" David Benavidez returns to the ring to face Demetrius Andrade on Saturday night in Las Vegas.

Andrade is 35 years old and possesses a 32-0 professional record in which he has won by knockout 19 times, while Benavidez is 26 and has a 27-0 pro record with 23 knockouts.

It's a contrast in styles, with Andrade's slickness going up against Benavidez's more attritional approach in which he gets the better of his opponent in later rounds with combination punches and bursts of energy.

Benavidez sometimes loses early rounds, but his size and stamina have made the difference in the late stages of fights throughout his career while Andrade tends to fade late in matches.

I think this will be a fight of two halves: Andrade's speed will shine through early on before Benavidez does what he does best and wears down Andrade near the end of the bout.

Rob Tebbutt's Tip

This weekend, I like David Benavidez winning between rounds seven and 12. That's boosted to +300 on bet365, and if you're looking for extra value, consider Benavidez winning by stoppage anytime at +130.

Jermall Charlo (-800) v Jose Benavidez Jr (+500)

David Benavidez's older brother Jose takes to the ring in Vegas as well, facing off against Jermall Charlo, who is fighting for the first time since 2021.

Charlo holds the WBC middleweight title, but this will be a non-title bout. He is 32-0 in his professional career with 22 knockout wins while Benavidez Jr. is 22-2-1 with losses to quality opponents in Danny Garcia and Terence Crawford.

Benavidez Jr. won his last bout in August 2023, but he took two losses and a draw in the three fights before that. Charlo has made five straight successful title defenses but has not faced the world-class fighters Benavidez Jr. has faced.

I expect Charlo's time out of the ring to affect this fight and I think it will go long as Charlo has not filled me with confidence ahead of this fight.

Rob Tebbutt's Tip

I don't entirely know what to expect from this fight so while it is a shorter play, I like this fight to go the distance at -225. If you think that Charlo will slip up after so much time off, consider taking Benavidez Jr. to win at +500.
