Best Boxing Matches to Bet on in November 2020 – Tyson vs. Jones Jr. and More
I have big boxing bets to look forward to in November 2020. Maybe you do too?
Some awesome fights are coming up that should make the cold snap headed our way a little easier to deal with. It always helps to have something to look forward to, and what can bring a smile to the face quicker than preparing to sack everything off for the fights?
Mike Tyson fights Roy Jones Jr. in one of the craziest fights I’ve ever the pleasure of talking about. If you’re interested in capitalizing on the odds for Tyson vs. Jones Jr., you’ll have plenty of markets to choose from.
Other than that, we have the likes of Terence Crawford, Daniel Jacobs, and Katie Taylor doing their thing in the 11th month. And you can find out their chances, below.
Haney vs. Gamboa – Saturday, Nov 7
Devin Haney takes on Yuriorkis Gamboa for the WBC lightweight title on Saturday, November 7.
The fight goes down at the Hard Rock Live in Hollywood, Florida. It is sure to be a solid fight to watch, even though Haney’s odds to beat Gamboa are trending around the -2000 mark with the best online boxing betting sites.
If Gamboa’s (30-3, 18 KOs) display against Gervonta Davis last December is anything to go by, Haney (24-0, 15 KOs) will have his work cut out. Davis, who has never gone the distance other than one six-round fight in his early career, needed a 12th round stoppage to win.
Gamboa is tough, even at 38. But surely Haney has an opportunity to lure Davis into a potential fight in 2021 by getting his attention against an opponent that “Tank” has previously struggled with.
Crawford vs. Brook – Saturday, Nov 14
If you’re betting on Terence Crawford vs. Kell Brook, there is a chance that you already know about the American’s elite reputation.
Considered the finest boxer on the planet by many fight fans, Crawford faces former IBF welterweight champ, Brook, in a solid matchup at 147.
Coming in with a record of 36-0 (27 KOs), “Bud” has been at the top of the sport for several years. A former undisputed champion at light-welterweight, the Nebraskan technician has been criticized for his lack of premier competition to date.
Brook, although still a very good fighter, is considered to be a little past his best. The Sheffield native is still only 34. But he suffered major eye injuries in fights against Gennady Golovkin and Errol Spence Jr. in back to back fights in 2016 and 2017 that has stunted his career trajectory.
The Englishman is 3-0 from his last three fights, but there are questions over his ability to successfully cut to 147-pounds. Factor that in with his eye issues, and a boxer as high grade as Crawford should have too much for him.
Either way, it should a lot of fun while it lasts.
Taylor vs. Gutierrez – Saturday, Nov 14
Undisputed women’s lightweight champion Katie Taylor puts her extensive collection of belts on the line against Spain’s Miriam Gutierrez on November 14.
The Irish sensation fights for the first time since a grueling win over the granite chinned Delfine Persoon in August. Taylor will be hoping for a more commanding performance this time around, especially since some felt Persoon deserved the nod in their rematch. And the first fight, for that matter.
Gutierrez, who made her pro debut in 2017, is 13-0 to Taylor’s 16-0. She recently won the WBA interim lightweight title but has never fought outside of Spain.
Taylor is the favorite to beat the 37-year-old. But will there be a surprise on the night?
Jacobs vs. Rosado – Friday, Nov 27
Former IBF titlist Daniel Jacobs (36-3, 30 KOs) takes on Gabriel Rosado (25-12-1-1, 14 KOs) in a middleweight clash at Hard Rock Live in Hollywood, Florida.
Jacobs is aiming to get back into middleweight title contention, having picked up losses to Gennady Golovkin and Canelo Alvarez in recent years. It appears that Jacobs should make light work of Rosado if boxing betting sites get it right.
The “Miracle Man” has consistently been one of the best fighters at 160-pounds over the past few years. It stands as a testament to his strengths that he was just about beaten by Golovkin in 2017, albeit contentiously, but he might feel a little bummed about his lackluster display against Canelo.
A win here wouldn’t change much for Jacobs, but a loss would be catastrophic. So, you might say this a fight where he will be heading into the ring with bad intentions.
Dubois vs. Joyce – Saturday, Nov 28
A key British heavyweight fight between Daniel “Triple D” Dubois and Joe “Juggernaut” Joyce goes down in London on November 28.
The British, Commonwealth, and vacant European heavyweight titles are on the line for these rivals. But perhaps more importantly, the winner will get the chance to advance their career by campaigning for fights against lower world-level opposition.
Dubois is a fighter that has excellent potential. But this fight is absolutely crucial to his ambitions of expediting his career to the next level. It won’t be a walkover for the prospect.
I talk about this fight in more detail in my early Dubois vs. Joyce preview. Give it a read for now. I’ll be back with a full prediction for the fight, including the latest Dubois vs. Joyce odds, that I will be posting soon to our picks section.
Tyson vs. Jones Jr. – Saturday, Nov 28
Last, but certainly not least, whoever thought we would see “Iron” Mike Tyson in the ring again? Against fellow 90s icon, Roy Jones Jr., I might add?
If you would have suggested this could happen even two years ago, I would have asked you to take a vacation somewhere quiet and relaxing. But it’s happening. Soon.
The official line is that this fight is an exhibition. It’s not going to involve anything emphatic, sensational, or out of the ordinary. Now, I am aware that those very three words are among the top choices of adjectives when it comes to describing both of these legends. But surely this cannot go awry?
I was hesitant to name this as one of the top fights to bet on in November. But it’s going to be a good watch, right?
Who could resist the power of Tyson, or the technical mastership of Jones in their respective primes? Now, these two are about as close to their primes as I am nailing a date with a Victoria’s Secret model who wants to pay for dinner. But still, I’ll be tuning in.
Let’s just hope that the fight doesn’t end up looking like this.
We all love a bit of nostalgia. And you can’t get any better than watching two of boxing’s greatest names go at it in their 50s. How about that for a blast from the past, huh?
In all fairness, we have some big fights coming up in November. Where Tyson and Jones are aiming to turn the clock back, most of the fighters above are aiming to take one step closer to bigger and better things in the future.
Looking past November, some super fights have already been confirmed while others are still being thrashed out. I’ll leave you with just a few teasers to get the old ticker going.
Enjoy the fights!
