Nathan Heaney vs Brad Pauls Betting Tips & Preview

Stoke showman Nathan Heaney (18-0-1, 6KO) is all set for the second rematch of his seven-year pro career when he faces Newquay’s Brad Pauls (8-0-1, 10KO) in Birmingham on July 20, live on TNT Sports.

The 34-year-old ‘Hitman’ Heaney will defend his British middleweight title to the Cornish challenger, Pauls, for the second successive time after the pair fought to a draw just four months ago.

Trained by Terry Steward in Essex, Pauls was caught quite cleanly and heavily in the first couple of rounds as the champion started brightly, but he began to close the gap and throw those big shots that earned him the nickname ‘The Newquay Bomb’.

The champ was bleeding from his nose and forced to dig deep. Heaney was hurt more than once, somehow managing to stay on his feet, even after a torrid 11th round where he looked all but finished, hanging on for dear life, but still able to finish the round strongly.

The contest see-sawed back and forth and provided the world with a fantastic advert for a British title fight.

Pauls confidently knows he has the power to hurt Heaney, yet he was unable to drop him even after landing his biggest shots numerous times.

Heaney knows he can outbox Pauls with his superior jab, so will need to stay disciplined and focused during the rematch to use his lead left on the outside and keep the heavy-hitter at arm’s length. 

If the second instalment follows the same pattern as the first, then fans can expect to see another even battle that will swing back and forth with plenty of big shots landed and each fighter having to dig deep to gain the upper hand. It’s certain to be another war of attrition.

If the champion can box to instruction, then it could be his fight to win or lose, but Pauls will bring the pressure once more, so Heaney will be forced to fight often. It all depends on who has improved enough within the past few months to be able to gain the edge over the other, and it will also depend on who can implement their game plan on the night.

Heaney has taken Pauls’ best shots and proved his toughness, so if he can avoid too much damage and choose to box rather than fight, then he could show everyone just why he is the champion.

Nathan Heaney vs Brad Pauls Prediction

Heaney on points – Pauls really showed up to the biggest fight of his career, but I believe that Heaney has more room for improvement and change in the return fixture and will win on points in another close contest.


Ashley Lane vs Andrew Cain Betting Tips & Preview

It’s Lane vs Cain for the British and Commonwealth bantamweight belts.

Ashley Lane (18-10-2, 3KO) is living a real-life Rocky story after only winning seven from his first 17 fights, losing in his first attempt at the Lonsdale belt in 2019; fighting in the away corner against prospects; and seemingly written off until a surprise win over the highly-rated Jordan Purkiss saw him claim the English bantamweight crown last year.

Back in the picture and occupying the visitor’s corner again, the ‘Flash’ was able to defeat Frank Warren’s fighter Chris Bourke in March to win the British and Commonwealth bantamweight titles against the odds.

Now the 33-year-old Bristol boxer gets the chance to continue to prove doubters wrong with a defence to the dangerous Andrew Cain (11-1, 10KO) from Liverpool.

27-year-old Cain was unlucky to lose his WBC International Silver super-bantamweight title to Ionut Baluta in March last year after breaking his hand in the first round.

Trained by Paul Stevenson, Cain had the Romanian, known for upsetting British fighters, down twice in the opener, only to suffer the debilitating injury that saw the fight reach the distance, with Cain getting caught in the ninth and hitting the deck for the first time in his career, which swung the split decision to the European. However, the result is still debated by many witnesses, believing Cain had done enough to have his hand raised.

Prior to that, Cain had claimed his WBC regional belt within 19 seconds when he knocked out Pablo Angel Gomez with about three punches, then he defended it in just two-minutes against Luis Moreno the following month in May 2022.

Winning and defending a WBC title within 141 seconds in just five weeks time is why Cain is regarded as one of the most exciting prospects in the country right now. His teammate Nick Ball has won a world title now and Cain wants to be the next one from the Everton Red Triangle gym to do so.

His style is thrilling, boxing with his hands down by his side to generate the torque he needs to hurt his opponents, successfully stopping 10 from 11 of victims to achieve a 90% KO ratio. Although Baluta was able to triumph over him, he was still down on the canvas twice under the heavy hands of Cain.

Both boxers have a lot to prove, Lane is the defending champion with bags of experience, but Cain has the bit between his teeth, and he is a scary fighter when in that ring, looking to hurt his foes with every single shot he throws.

Lane may not be known for his power, but Baluta only had three KOs on his record when he dropped Cain in that ninth round, and Lane comes into the contest with the same number of knockouts and off the back of a sixth-round stoppage win in his last fight.

If Cain can get in close, implement his ‘hit and don’t get hit’ style of boxing where he crouches low, slips shots, bounces lightly on his quick feet to get in and out of range, then it should be an early night for the Merseysider.

Ashley Lane vs Andrew Cain Prediction

Cain by KO – Cain to be back to his explosive best to win by KO early. The pain of losing will drive him to win at any cost and Lane can get marked up quite badly, so 12 rounds with such a big, aggressive puncher is going to be a stretch.


Chantelle Cameron vs Elhem Mekhaled Betting Tips & Preview

Former undisputed super-lightweight queen Chantelle Cameron (18-1, 8KO) makes her Queensberry Promotions debut against ex-European champion Elhem Mekhaled (17-2, 3KO).

The French ‘Diamond’ may not have reached the heights that her British opponent has during her eight-year pro career, but she has fought in an undisputed championship contest when she challenged the champion Alycia Baumgardner last year. The tough 33-year-old was dropped twice by the hard-hitting American but was still able to see out the full 10-rounds.

Northampton’s Cameron, 33, has fought 20 thrilling rounds with Irish superstar Katie Taylor with the score now one apiece and the trilogy decider currently on hold while Taylor rematches Amanda Serrano in November.

‘Il Capo’ is looking at this first fight under Frank Warren as a run-out to get back to the biggest fights in the world, recently mentioning she wants the winners of either Katie Taylor-Amanda Serrano or Tasha Jonas-Mikaela Mayer.

However, the consummate professional, now training with Grant Smith in Sheffield, will not be taking her opponent lightly as she knows what lies ahead if she wins and how far it would set her back if she loses.

Cameron’s experience at the highest level should see her control the pace and flow of the fight. Known for setting a high pace and pressure, the busy Brit should be able to overwhelm her opponent to win every round fairly comfortably.

Chantelle Cameron vs Elhem Mekhaled Prediction

Cameron on points – Cameron to dominate the durable Mekhaled to win via unanimous decision. She could possibly step on the gas to force a stoppage, but getting those important rounds in after not fighting all year and avoiding any unnecessary risks should take precedence.

Which Bookie Should I Place The Tips With?

If you’d like to back any of the selections, we recommend a bookmaker to do so with. These are usually the bookies offering the best odds on the selection at the time of posting the tip but it may be worth checking other bookies in case the odds have changed. There may also be betting offers associated with the tip that are only available with specific bookmakers that are worth taking into consideration.

What Stakes Should I Use?

We never recommend an actual stake to use for each bet as this will vary between people depending on the size of their betting bank. Never bet more than you can afford to lose and always stick to your staking plan.

How Regularly Are Boxing Tips Published?

WhichBookie boxing analyst Tim Rickson will publish tips whenever he finds value in a bet. If there is a big fight coming up, it’s likely that he will cover it but generally, they’ll be posted whenever a good bet comes about.

How To Bet On Boxing

There are several options when it comes to betting on boxing, and the more you know, the better your chances of success. We will now go into more detail about some of the different betting markets that you will find, and discuss a few potential strategies you could use.

Outright / To Win Fight

outright betting on boxing is the easiest way to find a winning betAs with most sports, the outright market is probably the simplest, because you’re just betting on who will win the fight. There are no other criteria to consider, other than the fact that with many of the best bookies for boxing, you can also bet on the draw. However, draws in boxing are very rare and not many people tend to back this outcome.

Bear in mind that in many fights, one boxer tends to be a heavy favourite and it’s usually quite easy to pick the winner. There don’t tend to be that many shock results. Therefore, the odds on the favourite are often very low, even if you use the bookie with the best odds as described earlier in the article.

If you’re happy betting at short odds, you can certainly get a good success rate simply by backing short price favourites in boxing. But many people prefer to look for bigger wins. So you may sometimes need to look at some of the other markets to get a better return on your bet.

Fight Outcome / Method of Victory

This market lets you choose not only who will win the fight, but how they will win. Different methods of victory are usually grouped as follows:

So because there are more possible outcomes in this market, the odds are higher than just the outright win market.

Round Betting

boxing round betting offers the highest oddsThe Round Betting market offers the opportunity to get the highest odds. Here you can bet on which fighter will win, and which round he/she will win in.

Options to bet on a fighter to win on points, or to bet on the draw, are both also included in this market. In a 12 round bout, that gives 27 different possible outcomes. Therefore, the odds on each one are naturally going to be much higher. Think of it as the equivalent of the correct score market in football betting.

So the round betting market offers the biggest potential wins when betting on boxing. But of course, it’s harder to predict the outcome. You do have the option to split your stake to cover more than one outcome though. So if you felt that a fighter would win within the first 3 rounds, you could split your stake to back him to win in round 1, round 2 and round 3. The odds would mean you’d get a good profit if any of those outcomes happened.

To Go The Distance

This is a simple market in which you decide whether the fight will last all 12 rounds or not. Therefore there are only two outcomes to bet on, Yes or No.

It’s possible to get a decent success rate when betting on this market. Check the stats and the history of each boxer and ask yourself the following:

The answers to these key questions should give you a good idea of whether the fight is likely to go the distance or not. There can still be surprises, but you’ll certainly win more bets than you lose.

Total Rounds Over/Under

This market allows you to bet on the total number of rounds the fight will last for. The advantage here is that you do not need to specify who will win, just how long it will last.

For example, let’s consider a market of Over/Under 3.5 Rounds. There are only two options to bet on, either Over 3.5 Rounds or Under 3.5 Rounds. Therefore, you would approach the market as follows:

You will find that similar markets are available for Over/under 4.5, Over/Under 5.5, Over/Under 6.5 etc.

Where To Get The Best Odds On Boxing

As any professional punter will tell you, the key to making a profit is not knowing who will win every time. Because obviously, that is not possible. The real trick is making sure that when you do win, you get the best possible odds on your bet.

We studied the odds for outright bets on every professional boxing match over a period of three months. We wanted to find the best bookies for boxing odds over a prolonged period of time.

As you would expect, Betfair and Bet365 are better than most of the competition. But the results showed that Betfred have the highest odds overall and came out well in some of the other markets like round betting.

Betfred were consistently best or equal best odds on nearly every outright market we recorded. They blew some of the other online bookies away in terms of the value they offered on boxing, and their user ratings are good too. So if you don’t have an account with them yet, we would definitely recommend joining.
