By Niall Doran In the second instalment of my boxing bets column I'm going to look at three fights across the UK and the US this weekend that perhaps you could include in an accumulator/treble/parlay, a combination of one or all as part of a multi sport accumulator or even look at the different markets individually.

Welcome to Doran’s Weekend Boxing Bets! #Addition 1
Happy Friday fight fans! Its that time of the week again where this weekend’s action is almost upon us. I’ve decided to add a new weekly column to the site for all you sports punters out there who like to have a flutter and enjoy an occasional gamble to spice up your sport every now and then!
Boxing traditionally is a sport where the odds can be low but there are a variety of ways that I’ve seen people successfully make a few quid off the sport in the form of strategy’s like:
- Putting a fight into a multi sport accumulator (or for our friends in Las Vegas – a parlay)
- Group round betting
- A combination of fight outcomes in an accumulator/parlay
- Or lumping something on a fighter to win by standard win, KO/TKO or points
For our first addition I’m going to have a look at the follwoing fights and markets that might be of interest to folks this weekend:
Odlanier Solis v Tony Thompson – I reckon the talented Cuban should have this one and at best price standard win 2/5 would certainly be worth putting into an accumulator/parlay. However if I was looking for a bit of extra value I would have a look at Solis on points at 5/6 – he’s a clever boxer and Thompson has a granite chin so I don’t see this one ending in stoppage, you never know with the heavyweights though.
Kid Galahad to win by KO/TKO. Odds are not up on any of the bookie sites yet but by tomorrow you should get around 1/4 for this and its one if I was doing an accumulator/parlay this weekend I would definitely have down.
Over the next few months there should be a considerable amount of boxing markets opening up that will present a lot of interest, I will be sure to keep ye guys posted on my thoughts/tips every Friday on here.
Enjoy the weekend’s action fight fans!
