Liam Smith returns to action this weekend when taking on Mexican Mario Alberto Lozano in the early hours of Sunday morning. The betting suggests Smith need only turn up to secure a 28th career win. However, sports fans are well aware of the fact anything can happen in boxing and upsets are commonplace in the game. Here are our top Liam Smith v Mario Alberto Lozano betting tips.
A Closer Look
Will we see another this weekend? It’s highly unlikely, according to the traders, and backers of Smith will have to make do with the 1/50 being offered as there’s not an awful lot better around at the time of writing. Lozano is a 12/1 poke for anyone wishing to take a stab at the underdog, the draw chalked up as a 33/1 outsider.
That will force backers of the Brit into the method of victory market as they search out a bigger price. If you expect Beefy to win in Mexico, it’s worth risking your cash on how he’ll achieve the desired result. Will the 31-year-old notch up a 16th career knockout or do you expect him to play it smart and win on points? Knowing the answer to that question will be the difference between making a profit and losing cash to the bookies.
Smith has claimed two of his last three victories inside the distance and that’s worth remembering. We’ll now take a look at the form of his opponent for a clearer picture of how this one should go. Lozano has lost nine times in a 42-bout career but has been stopped only once. He’s not a danger but won’t be in a rush to leave early. He’ll test Smith without ever worrying him and will give the Englishman a few rounds.
