There are only two months left of the calendar year, but big title fights are still on the boxing fights 2023 schedule. Kicking things off is Shakur Stevenson vs Edwin De Los Santos for the vacant WBC lightweight title in November. Boxing odds are available for all title fights.
Stevenson Picked to Win
The American is a firm -800 favorite to win the vacant, and given his impressive record so far, we can’t see him being beaten.
However, he believes De Los Santos is a tougher test than Frank Martin.
“I think he’s a harder challenge than Frank Martin,” Stevenson said. “Once again, I been watching him, so I kinda see like he got great movement, he got great punching power. I watched his fight with Valenzuela.
“He kinda kept catching him in the exchanges. And he’s real good at exchanging with fighters, so we’ll see come fight night how he present his self.”
Despite his kind words for his opponent, Stevenson should be winning comfortably.
Benavidez Favored Against Andrade
In terms of boxing events, we’re excited for this fight. Benavidez is the second-ranked fighter in his division, and he’s an impressive 27-0.
The 26-year-old American comes off a unanimous decision win over Caleb Plant, and that’s an excellent form guide.
Andrade is also unbeaten at 32-0, but the 35-year-old hasn’t faced the same level of opposition as Benavidez.
Boxing fights 2023 feature many quality matchups, but this fight should be one to watch. The latest boxing news is that Benavidez isn’t taking his opponent lightly, so it could go deep into the latter rounds.
Andrade is a +270 underdog, which is strange for a fighter with such an impressive win/loss record. He has been good, but facing Benavidez could be too much for the older fighter.
Haney Continues to Win
Devin Haney knows how to win, and in December, he fights to retain his WBC World super lightweight title.
The controversial American is 30-0, with 15 of his wins coming by knockout. He likes to wear his opponents down, and that’s what we think he’s going to do to Prograis.
Prograis is 29-1, and his only defeat came to Josh Taylor earlier in this career. However, he bounced back with wins over some quality fighters, including Jose Zepeda and Danielito Zorrilla.
There is some trepidation with boxing fights 2023 odds, especially for Haney. He’s a -335 chance, and we thought he would be shorter.
Prograis is a solid underdog hope at +245, but beating Haney is much easier said than done. Haney has been bulletproof throughout his career, and his unbeaten record should be safe.
His only worry would be taking Prograis for granted, but we don’t think he’ll make that mistake at this stage of his career.
