Devin Haney’s Boxing Odds & Betting Outlook vs Diaz Jr

Haney is looking to notch the fourth successful defense of his WBC title in his sophomore bout of the calendar year.

Despite overcoming being wobbled and pushing through some adversities in his last fight, some sweet science pundits perceived that there were gas tank issues for the champion.

This collective of skeptics is observing Devin Haney’s next bout to see what kind of form is shown by one of the most promising young stars in the sport, pound for pound.

The backdrop of the recent George Kambosos Jr upset over Teofimo Lopez informs this Haney versus Diaz Jr bout.

The newly minted unified champion is expected to attend the fight and the idea is Kambosos Jr could potentially fight the winner of Saturday’s title fight in an undisputed championship, unification clash at 135 pounds for 2022.

This prizefight represents the stiffest test of Haney’s career, and this is something he is fully cognizant of.

It also represents a chance for the 23-year-old to actualize his star potential into reality. But Diaz Jr is certainly looking to play spoiler to that as he himself aims to actualize his own dreams into reality.

Joseph Diaz Jr’s Boxing Odds & Betting Outlook vs Haney

Diaz Jr has world title accolades across three weight categories so far.

The former featherweight and super featherweight world champion won the interim WBC lightweight title in his last outing and is looking to become the undisputed champion against Haney here.

Haney has a sizable reach advantage, a refined fight IQ, and has capable punching power by any measure. But the southpaw angles and overall experience of Diaz Jr stand out as attributes for him.

In this twelve-round championship clash, I see there being a certain level of pugilistic parity whereby we see this bout encroach to that final bell.

Devin Haney vs Joseph Diaz Jr Pick & Prediction

In the end, I think this fight goes the distance, and the prop bet regarding that (situated at -350) presents solid value.

Haney winning via decision is positioned at -200, and I also think that is an advisable prop bet to go with leading into this title affair.

Pick: Devin Haney (-715)
