Saul Alvarez v Amir Khan Betting Tips, Saturday 7th May 2016, fight time circa 4.00am UK time on Sunday 8th May

It is usual before a big boxing match for both fighters to be mouthing off about how easily their win the bout…. quite often when it is appears so one-sided a match up as to make such talk from one of the fighters seem ludicrous. Things are different this time, however, as Amir Khan brings a refreshing dose of honesty about his chances of success against Saul Alvarez.

Having moved up two weights to make the fight against the Mexican, Khan admits that he will almost certainly lack the power to hurt his opponent. He claims, though, that his superior speed and skill will allow him to avoid any damaging blows and take the victory on points after the completion of the 12 rounds. This is, of course, a tactic reliant on not getting hit, and though Khan has shown how adept he is on his feet on numerous occasions, he is by no means infallible.

Khan’s first round knockout defeat against Colombian hitter Breidis Prescott gave the first hints that Khan’s chin was vulnerable, something confirmed in his fourth round defeat to Danny Garcia in 2012. In his most recent fights against Chris Algieri, Devon Alexander and Luis Collazo – all of which went the distance – Khan showed greater resilience, but none of those men can hit as hard as Alavarez, a man who went 12 rounds with Floyd Mayweather in 2013 when he gave as good as he got for the most part.

Alvarez is the 2/9 favourite to get the victory here with most bookies, compared to 16/5 for a Khan win, and we have to very much agree with that assessment. As such, while taking the 12/1 on Khan might appear tempting, grabbing the 4/1 available on Alvarez is a far better value bet and much more likely to bring you a tasty profit.

So if you don’t already have a betting account with Betfair and you want to profit from the big fight this weekend, get over to Betfair and back Alvarez at enhanced odds of 4/1.
