Boxing Odds in Vegas - New Blood in Boxing
Boxing is an exciting sport for those who watch it and for those who have the guts and skills, it's an exhilarating sport to participate in. We're always amazed when looking at boxing odds for Vegas bouts how big some of the stars of the sport have become and we wonder who the next big stars of the sport will be. After all, today's boxers aren't going to be around forever, and the sport needs new talent in order to survive.
There's never a shortage of ego and ability in many gyms around the world and luckily there is some new blood emerging and we've taken a look at a few of those who we believe could be destined for greater things.
The Charlo Twins
If ever someone decided to start a WWE-style tag team event in boxing, then these two guys would surely dominate it. Twins from Houston, Texas, Jermell and Jermall are two very different kinds of fighter, but both are equally intimidating for different reasons.
Jermell was seen for a very long time as the weakest of the two, but his record of 30-0 and with an impressive 15KOs to his name makes that idea laughable. He is one of the biggest prospects within boxing and is the current WBC light middleweight champion, having successfully defended it three times.
They might be identical, but Jermall is six pounds heavy than his brother and fights at middleweight. He is seen as the leading contender for a number of championship fights and 2018 really could be the year the Charlo Twins dominate two different weight classes in the sport.
Errol "The Truth" Spence
His nickname might sound like he should be a character on Jersey Shore, but don't be fooled as this fighter has an astonishing record. He's the current IBF welterweight title holder, a title he has defended once and will do so once again this summer against Carlos Ocampo in Dallas, Texas. His record of 23-0 with 20 knockouts shows why he is tipped for greater things.
Chris Eubank Jr
Everyone remembers Chris Eubank, the slightly eccentric boxer who wore fancy suits and a monocle and drove around in a Peterbilt truck. He wasn't actually that bad a boxer either, but his son is a different breed.
Sure, he's lost two of his 28 bouts, the most recent of which saw him lose his IBO super-middleweight title to George Groves, but with 20 knockouts to his name there are great times ahead. Eubank Jr has only fought outside of his native UK twice, once in Denmark and once in Germany, but a trip across the pond seems inevitable sooner rather than later.
These four fighters are ones we think you should look out for. They're all definitely going to be major players in the sport over the next few years and we can hopefully expect to see them all listed with other familiar names among the boxing odds for Vegas bouts in the not too distant future
