Carl Frampton v Luke Jackson Odds, Tips and Predictions
Get ready for the battle of the featherweights with Carl Frampton v Luke Jackson. Every boxer dreams of big-occasion fights; this is something that Carl Frampton has achieved numerous times at various arenas across UK. Fighting Leo Santa Cruz at the MGM Grand was the high point in the career of Frampton so far; although he went on to lose the rematch and his WBA Super World Featherweight Title. Dublin is not the top of every fighter’s list of venues. However, to Frampton, fighting in front of his Irish following in a stadium fight at Windsor Park might beat the experience of fighting in front of the Vegas crowd.
Frampton, 31, takes on undefeated Australian Luke Jackson. “The Jackal” is a huge favourite and we can see why. He has both experience and youth on his side. Frampton has fought in 16 title fights in his 26 fight career; he is two years younger and has been in the ring with the likes of Kiko Martinez, Scott Quigg, Leo Santa Cruz and Nonito Donaire; Jackson hasn’t fought anyone of note and this will be his fifth bout with any form of title on the line.
Taking into account all the advantages, it’s very unlikely that we will see anything other than a Frampton win – it may be better trying different boxing betting strategies other than a straight fight win if you want to maximise your earning potential.
