Dixon and Carabajal Fight for Vacant WBO Title

Dixon vs Carabajal Odds Express Support For the Former

The women’s WBO lightweight title is up for grabs in Manchester when Rhiannon Dixon faces Karen Elizabeth Carabajal. A close fight is expected, but Dixon is moderately favored to win at -370 per the Dixon vs Carabajal odds. She will improve her record to a perfect 10-0. Carabajal is no pushover, however, so it’s one of the must-see boxing events this weekend.

Dixon Rising in the Ranks

Dixon has not faced anyone of note, but the British fighter has done all she has needed to. She won by TKO last year against Vicky Wilkinson, which was the only stoppage victory of her career. The southpaw followed it with a decision win over 16-1 Katharina Thanderz, which was dominant.

She didn’t lose a round on all three judges’ scorecards in the ten-round fight. That’s not easy to do, Hence, Dixon proved she can throw with volume and get it done. Of all the boxing fighters on display at Manchester this Saturday, she has the most upside. The Briton is ranked third in the division, and it’s only a matter of time before she wins a belt.

It could be against Carabajal, who is a tough fighter. Thus, the -370 favorite on the Dixon vs Carabajal odds looks about right. She believes she’s in for the best night of her life.

“I don’t really think too much about fight night, though. I think it’s usually only the night before. Me and Ross [her partner] always say in bed, ‘Tomorrow’s gonna be the best night of your life’ and I go to sleep excited,” Dixon said.

She’s the worthy favorite, but she’s facing an opponent with 23 fights on her record so it won’t entirely be smooth sailing.

Carabajal on the Comeback Trail

Carabajal has 22 wins on her record, so she deserves credit for her busy boxing schedule. The 33-year-old lost to Katie Taylor when fighting for all four world titles in 2022. However, despite being outclassed by the Irishwoman, she knuckled down and won her next three fights.

She was never on the same level as Taylor, but Dixon isn’t either. It should be a much closer fight than what she endured, and she is being respected at +280 with Dixon vs Carabajal odds.

The Argentinian has three wins by KO on her record, and despite being ranked eighth in the world, she could give the favorite something to worry about.

We expect some betting interest to come for the underdog on fight night, and it could also depend on how the other local fighters go in their respective bouts. Bettors might lose interest in the British fighters if they start slowly.

Dixon to Realize Dream

It has been a dream for Dixon to win a world title, and although it’s a vacant title, it still counts for a lot.

The British fighter doesn’t have the same experience as Carabajal, but she has more upside, and younger fighters win more often than not. Getting -345 is a fair price for Dixon, who doesn’t know what a loss feels like, and we don’t think she will on Saturday night.

Dixon’s southpaw stance could give Carabajal some problems, and considering she didn’t lose a round in her most recent fight, Dixon should score a points victory.

We can’t see the fight being decided by a knockout, so take Dixon at -250 to win by decision. It comes with more risk, but the boxing odds are slightly better than her to win with head-to-head lines.
