2018 proved to be a great one for British boxing. Two massive cards on December 22nd, headlined by Whyte versus Chisora and Warrington versus Frampton, ended a stellar calendar year. But what does 2019 hold for these great fighters? Here at Betting Sites we take a look at those hoping to retain their place at the top of the game whilst we also look at some of the fighters looking to dethrone them.

Heavyweight boxing is back! 


What better place to start than right at the top of the heavyweight division. With Deontay Wilder and Tyson Fury set for a rematch and Anthony Joshua waiting in the wings, the division is very much alive and kicking. 

For a couple of years Anthony Joshua has been the biggest name in the heavyweight division but a thrilling showdown in Los Angeles between Wilder and Fury means there are now three fighters who can all lay claim to the title on number one heavyweight. 

No rematch has yet been confirmed between Wilder and Fury but given the controversial end to their thrilling 12-round contest it would be a travesty for the pair not to go toe-to-toe again at some point this year. 

Fury went into the first fight as a 6/1 underdog after a lengthy layoff and the dramatic weight loss that followed. However, for many, Fury did enough to win the first fight and undoubtedly showed the better boxing skills throughout the 12 rounds. Just like the first fight, Wilder’s explosive punching power means he remains a dangerous opponent. We must also not forget that Wilder is still unbeaten and still WBC heavyweight champion of the world.

Deontay Wilder - 5/4 
Tyson Fury - 8/13 
Draw - 25/1
 
Dillian Whyte can consider himself incredibly unlucky to have not yet fought for a world title. Since losing to Joshua back in 2015, the Body Snatcher has climbed back up the heavyweight rankings thanks to superb wins over Chisora (twice), Lucas Browne and Joseph Parker. But with Joshua looking elsewhere for his next fight and Fury expected to be named a Wilder’s next opponent, Whyte may have to wait even longer for that elusive title shot. 

So, where next for Whyte?  


If he cannot secure a world title fight then Whyte will have to take on a big name if he is to further enhance his world title credentials. Jarrel Miller and Luis Ortiz have been touted as potential opponents but there seems to be increasing speculation of a shock heavyweight showdown between Whyte and Wladimir Klitschko. Former heavyweight king, Klitschko, retired after a thrilling loss to Anthony Joshua in 2016 but it is thought he is now in talks to fight Whyte. 

Fight odds 
Dillian Whyte - 4/5 
Wladimir Klitschko - Evens 
Draw - 25/1 

Another British boxer looking to make his mark on the heavyweight division is 2016 Olympic silver medallist, Joe Joyce. 33-year old, Joyce, was late joining the professional ranks and has is hoping to rapidly advance up the heavyweight rankings. 

Joyce improved his professional record to 7-0 with a crushing first round win over Joe Hanks on the Wilder/Fury undercard. After that win he immediately set his sights on one of the division’s bigger names. In his post-fight press conference, Joyce called out Luis Ortiz, who duly obliged. If the fight can be made then victory for the British fighter with certainly accelerate his progression through the division. 

Fight odds 
Joe Joyce - 5/6 
Luis Ortiz - Evens 
Draw - 25/1 

Away from the heavyweight division, boxing fans will be hopeful that 2019 will be the year that we finally see Amir Khan and Kell Brook share a ring. The two fighters have followed similar paths during their professional career but a showdown remains elusive. With both fighters now signed to Eddie Hearn’s Matchroom Boxing, Hearn has himself admitted that it is “now or never” for the two fierce rivals. 

The two main stumbling blocks for a potential Khan versus Brook fight seems the weight and both fighter’s ambition to once again claim a world title. 

Despite his underwhelming performance last time out against Michael Zerafa, Kell Brook is currently the bookies’ favourite. 

Fight odds 
Kell Brook - 8/15 
Amir Khan - 6/4 
Draw - 20/1 

One all-British showdown we are guaranteed to see this year is the scheduled bout between bitter rivals, Chris Eubank Jnr and James Degale. The two super-middleweights have been at loggerheads for several years. Some much-publicised spats on social media followed on from their ill-fated sparring sessions. 

The pair have been in talks since last July and a bout at the O2 Arena on February 23rd was confirmed earlier this month. BoxRec currently rank Eubank Jnr as the world’s second-best super-middleweight and the bookies give the former IBO champion a slight edge in the betting. 

Fight odds 
Chris Eubank Jnr - 8/11 
James Degale - 11/10 
Draw - 16/1 

Rumours are starting to circulate regarding the possibility of a third meeting between pound-for-pound kings, Canelo Alvarez and Gennady Golovkin. The pair have met twice before, with both gruelling encounters going the full 12 rounds and now Canelo and Triple G could be set for a famous trilogy fight on Cinco De Mayo weekend. 

Alvarez’s promoter, Oscar De La Hoya, has confirmed a date and venue has already been confirmed for his next bout and Golovkin is his preferred opponent. Canelo will definitely fight at Las Vegas’ T-Mobile Arena on May 4th. If Triple G is confirmed as Canelo’s opponent, we can expect another epic. By May 4th, Golovkin will be 37 years old with Alvarez nine years his junior, the bookies are backing a repeat of his win when the pair last met. 

Fight odds 
Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez - 8/13 
Gennady Golovkin - 5/4 
Draw - 20/1
