This contest is for the interim WBO super middleweight championship and is presently a vacant strap.

Zach Parker’s Betting Outlook vs Ryder

Parker’s last three opponents have not seen the fifth round and the undefeated pro has a lot of momentum heading into Saturday night’s clash.

All three of those opponents mentioned above had previously never been stopped. So Parker has to be really entering the ring for this next one with galvanized confidence.

The winner of this bout wouldn’t only garner a title but would punch their ticket to potentially fight boxing’s biggest star Canelo Alvarez in a title unification bout later.

After Parker logged three defenses of his WBO international gold, he now is to capture some semblance of a world title under that organization’s banner.

Marcus Morrison, win via TKO Fight 1 Daniel Jacobs, win via SD
Sherzod Khusanov, win via KO Fight 2 Jozef Jurko, win via TKO
Vaughn Alexander, win via TKO Fight 3 Mike Guy, win via UD
Rohan Murdock, win via TKO Fight 4 Callum Smith, loss via UD

Some pundits and fans in the space see this as a breakout fight for Parker. Ryder looks to halt that hype and put the first blemish on the professional record of Parker.

John Ryder’s Betting Outlook vs Parker

Ryder could arguably be on an eight-fight winning streak and many saw his decision loss to Callum Smith in their WBA title clash as quite controversial.

‘The Gorilla’ still feels like he has a lot of good years left in him and the 34-year-old feels his time at 168 pounds offers up a clearer representation of his skills than his middleweight tenure indicated.

This all-British domestic clash sees both bring undefined attributes with Ryder bringing in more pro experience and his unique southpaw angles.

Conversely, Parker has advantages in height and weight as well as a greater finishing rate. Ryder seems emboldened by that though and has often been the smaller man in his contests; saying confidently that he has been in there with bigger pugilists than Parker.

Zach Parker vs John Ryder Prediction

This prizefight is scheduled for twelve rounds but I do not see the verdict of the ringside judges determining this bout’s outcome.

I see value in pursuing prop bets on this contest not going the distance (+170) and Parker winning via KO or TKO (+250).

Pick: Zach Parker (-240)
