Bet on Deontay Wilder, Claressa Shields and other big-name boxers ahead of Saturday’s action-packed day of fights

You’re here reading this, so hopefully, you’re well-versed in the world of professional boxing. If you are, you’re surely excited about today’s slate of fights.

The women will kick off the eventful day with a championship clash in the United Kingdom before the men take over in the States.

From a viewing experience, the day should be filled with fantastic battles and power punches galore. However, the slate should entice more than just the die-hard fan, it should attract bettors across the world And here at Bet For The Win, we couldn’t be more attracted!

Here is a rundown of the day’s big fights and what sportsbooks are saying about them.

All odds via BetMGM.

Claressa Shields (-110) vs. Savannah Marshall (+110)

Claressa Shields lost, as an amateur, to Savannah Marshall back in 2012. That loss has haunted her ever since. Today, she gets her rematch against the undefeated Marshall. So, undefeated Shields (12-0) vs. undefeated Marshall (12-0). Should be a doozy!

Shields-Marshall begins around 5:30 p.m. ET on ESPN+.

Devin Haney (-600) vs. George Kambosos Jr. (+450)

Devin Haney and George Kambosos Jr. fought one another back in June of this year. Haney outclassed and dominated Kambosos in his native country. Four months later, the two are fighting again and Haney (28-0) enters as a huge favorite.

The fight will take place at around 10:30 p.m. ET and can be watched on ESPN.

Caleb Plant (-1000) vs. Anthony Dirrell (+650)

Speaking of huge favorites, here comes Caleb Plant almost a year removed from his sole professional loss, which came by TKO at the hands of Canelo Alvarez. He’s got -1000 odds to defeat Anthony Dirrell, whose only two losses came at the hands of the unbeaten David Benavidez and Badou Jack.

The fight will take place around 10:00 p.m. ET and can be watched on Fox Sports PPV.

Deontay Wilder (-800) vs. Robert Helenius (+500)

Deontay Wilder is back for the first time since his KO loss to Tyson Fury back in October of last year. If he’s the hard-hitting former champion that we once knew, he shouldn’t have too difficult of a time on Saturday. Although, Helenius (31-3-0) is no pushover.

Wilder-Helenius will begin around 12:00 a.m. ET on Fox Sports PPV.
