4 Fights Boxing Fans Hope To See In 2019

As a new year rolls on, boxing betting fans look forward to an action-packed boxing schedule.

This year’s boxing match line-up starts with a bang and is sure to satisfy boxing fans with January’s high profile showdown between Manny Pacquiao and Adrien Broner.

As exciting as this boxing match will prove to be, there are a few potential fights that boxing betting sites and fans are hopeful to see go down during 2019.

It’s looking like an exciting year ahead, filled with impressive match-ups which make it an ideal situation for boxing betting.

Below are four potential fights that boxing spectators and bettors alike are longing to see:

1. Deontay Wilder vs. Tyson Fury

Arguably one of the most scintillating matches of 2018, fans are eagerly awaiting a rematch between Deontay Wilder and Tyson Fury.

Last year’s showdown saw Deontay Wilder reign victorious; even though the match ended in a draw, Wilder won because he landed two legitimate knockdowns. However, many fans believe that Tyson Fury won the first fight and was robbed of the title of champion.

Given their history, we can expect to see the highly anticipated rematch before the end of 2019. Will Wilder retain his title and maintain the respect a champion deserves or will Tyson Fury re-establish his dominance in the ring and walk away with the title? Only time will tell?

2. Anthony Joshua vs. Deontay Wilder

There is no doubt that the UK’s Anthony Joshua and Deontay Wilder of the US need to settle things. This heavyweight unification fight is sure to be one of the most anticipated boxing matches of the year.

The 29-year- old Joshua Anthony is currently undefeated (22-0, 21 KO), while the equally impressive Deontay Wilder boasts 39 knockouts in 40 fights.

Joshua Anthony is known for his superior technique, impressive size and incredible power- all of which create a deadly combination that could be a serious challenge to Deontay Wilder’s more athletic physique and unconventional fighting style.

One thing is for sure; this battle of the heavyweight giants is set to be a historic fight. It’s anyone’s guess which fighter will clinch the title.

3. Carl Frampton vs. Leo Santa Cruz III

Belfast’s beloved son, Carl Frampton, has already faced Mexican-American Leo Santa Cruz twice, with the score one apiece. Both fights were incredibly exciting and highly technical, making their bouts exhilarating to watch.

Featherweight champions in their own right, both men have something to prove and are hungry to maintain their status in the world of boxing.

It is likely that a third match between these two incredible boxers will take place in 2019.

4. Floyd Mayweather vs. Manny Pacquiao

Now this is the dream match of the year and a battle between boxing legends.

A fight between Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao could actually materialise in 2019 as a result of a chance meeting between the two that occurred in Tokyo last September.

The fighters share a long history, with fights that have earned record-breaking revenues. This means that a rematch in 2019 should be interesting, if not lucrative at the very least.
