In a great weekend of boxing, Luke Campbell takes on Tommy Coyle, Carson Jones faces Brian Rose in a rematch and Danny Garcia contest fellow American Paulie Malignaggi.
A fantastic weekend of boxing lies ahead, with the ‘Rumble on the Humber’ taking place, as Britain’s hugely talented Luke Campbell takes fellow Hull fighter on Tommy Coyle and Carson Jones contest Brian Rose in an eagerly anticipated rematch.
Elsewhere, there’s an all-American bout to look forward to, as Danny Garcia looks to overcome veteran Paulie Malignaggi and make a statement of intent in his career.
Luke Campbell v Tommy Coyle
In this potentially enthralling Hull showdown, 27-year-old Campbell is a best-priced 3/1 with bet365 to record a points decision victory over counterpart Coyle on what is both their home patch, in front of a rapturous 20,000 fans.
After claiming a gold medal for Great Britain at the 2012 Olympics, southpaw Campbell’s reputation has continued to grow with his astute technical abilities helping him earn 11 successive professional victories.
His menacing speed and aggressive counter punching should prove too much for his compatriot, and is odds-on 4/9 with Ladbrokes to secure his 10th knock-out triumph over an opponent who already possesses two losses on his record.
Although, Coyle is a tough competitor and could prove to be Campbell’s most defiant foe to date, meaning a tactical approach could see him outgun the lightweight opposition over 12 rounds, in a probable points triumph.
Brian Rose v Carson Jones
Blackpool’s Rose makes a return to the ring in search of redemption, having been sensationally stopped in the first round by Carson six months ago in front of his home crowd.
The 30-year-old light-middleweight was stunned in the opening round after being surprisingly caught off-guard, though the Birmingham-born bruiser will be extremely fired for a shot at gaining revenge and is 6/4 with paddy Power to win by KO.
Danny Garcia v Paulie Malignaggi
Meanwhile, at the Barclays Center in New York, Garcia will be aiming to put on a show and make a huge statement in his career by dominantly toppling veteran Malignaggi, and is odds-on 2/13 with Boylesports to overcome his ageing counterpart.
Betting tip: Campbell beats Coyle on points @ 3/1 with bet365
