After the new WBC lightweight champion Davin Haney suffered a serious shoulder injury and couldn’t return to big sport until the spring-summer season, his champion belt became vacant. The main contenders to get it are Luke Campbell and Javier Fortuna, who are due to meet on April 18 at Oxon Hill (Maryland, USA). You can bet on this match with high odds using eazibet app.
It is rather difficult to single out a particular favorite in this match, because the chances of all fighters are approximately equal in the weight category up to 61.2 kg, and there are no definite “stars”. Next, you will see the statistics of both fighters in matches at a professional level:
- 35 wins (24 knockouts)
- 2 losses
- 20 wins (16 knockouts)
- 3 losses
Although Javier is number 1 in the ranking on the WBC line, and he was supposed to be a rival to the current champion who dropped out because of an injury, but spectators and bookmakers, including odds in Eazibet app, think that the favorite is Luke Campbell. He is the champion of the Olympic Games 2012 and a former contender for the WBA and WBC titles. Luke got a chance to fight for the title, as he is next in the ranking after Fortuna.
Favorable predictions together with Soccabet app
The battle was being prepared for a very long time, and dates of the match were constantly postponed, as well as dates of promotions. In addition to the WBC champion title, the winner will become an opponent of Devin Haney in the next fight, and you can bet on him in soccabet app with the best odds for any outcome.
Previously, Fortuna won in the second round, when he beat the featherweight (up to 57.2 kg) ex-champion Jesús Cuellar from Argentina, whose statistics had 29 wins and 4 defeats before that match. In turn, Campbell lost to the Ukrainian Vasily Lomachenko in the last match in London, with the unanimous decision of the referees. The revenge against Lomachenko should have been Luke’s next match, if not for the vacancy of the WBC champion’s belt.
Luke Campbell himself and his promoter are fully confident that, despite the fact that the match promises to be challenging and eventful, it is Luke who will win the title of champion, because the British fighter proved to be excellent in close combat during his battle with Linares. If he can repeat the same thing this time, then can surely get the victory, largely because of his past incredible successes. Bookmakers and odds in Soccabet app are leaning towards the Olympian fighter.
