The Undercards – Eubank Jr Vs Chudinov, Walsh Vs Murray

Previews and Betting Tips

Dmitry Chudinov

Chris Eubank Jr Vs Dmitry Chudinov

Chris Eubank Jr returns after taking his first loss against Billy Joe Saunders, while Eubank Jr clearly lost that fight he did close that fight very well and proved he belonged at that level.

In Chudinov he has a very capable unbeaten opponent in front of him and there is the WBA interim title on the line also this weekend. Chudinov is a decent fighter who comes forward stalking his opponents but does bring some kind of plan into it.

However Chudinov tends to leave his chin exposed and I think he has a style that will suit Eubank Jr, I can just see openings for Eubank Jr to land those big uppercuts of his and I think he could be good for a stoppage win this weekend.

Bet365 have Eubank Jr to win by KO/TKO at 2/1 this weekend, I say that is a very good price and offers some good value.


BETTING TIP: £20 on Eubank Jr by TKO/KO 2/1 Bet365

Liam Walsh Vs Joe Murray

This is a rematch of a close encounter in 2013 which saw Walsh victorious by majority decision, Walsh has gone on to notch up 2 good wins since then against Kevin Hooper and Gary Sykes, Joe Murray has fought just once since, a second round TKO victory against Gyula Tallosi.

I think this one will play out similar to the last fight except I expect Liam Walsh to be a little more dominant this time and get a unanimous win on the cards.

With only odds of 4/7 for a Walsh decision I think I will leave this one out of the singles betting and look to play it in some accumulators.




Denton Vassell Vs Viktor Plotnykov 

This is a bout where I feel there is real potential for an upset this weekend, Vassell has looked out of sorts against Gavin and more notably Sam Eggington and there was a real lack of creativity and ideas in his come forward style, he looked very one dimensional.

I have to admit I haven’t seen an awful lot of Plotnykov as there isn’t a lot of footage available, but from what I can see is he is a pretty solid technical fighter with the tools to frustrate Vassell.

Looking at his record he has plenty of ring experience and is a former European title challenger. I think this fight has the makings of an upset and at 6/1 Plotnykov is well worth a play.
