Matchroom Vs Queensberry Betting Tips

Boxing has produced countless fierce rivalries in the past, but a unique event is set to take place on Saturday when two promoters go head-to-head.

Eddie Hearn and Frank Warren will face off, not in the ring, but with a team of five fighters they have selected to represent their Matchroom and Queensbury stables.

The two matchmakers have each selected their team on a night that will feature a quintet of cracking fights and we have a selection in all five of the Saudi Arabia contests.


Hamzah Sheeraz v Austin Williams

Hamzah Sheeraz dazzled when stopping Liam Williams inside the first round in February and the ‘Slough Slickster’ looks to be heading for the top. The Queensbury fighter takes on the promising Austin Williams and the Brit should have too much class for the Matchroom man.

There’s no point pretending that Williams wasn’t well past his best when Sheeraz destroyed the Welshman, but River Wilson-Bent, Dmytro Mytrofanov, Bradley Skeete, and a whole host of fighters, have been stopped by the impressive 25-year-old and he looks ready for a stiff test.

Sheeraz’s American opponent has good wins over Steve Rolls and Keiran Conway on his record, but Ammo could be outgunned on Saturday night.

Willy Hutchinson v Craig Richards

Queensbury’s Willy Hutchinson has won four bouts on the bounce since a shock 2021 loss to Lennox Clarke, but those victories have come against limited opponents.

Craig Richards has shown himself to be a useful and durable fighter when going the distance with Joshua Buatsi and Dmitrii Bivol and those two are worlds away from those Hutchinson has mixed it with. Take ‘Spider’ to strike a blow for Matchroom.

Ray Ford v Nick Ball

Ray Ford and Nick Ball clash for the WBA featherweight title and this should be another victory for Matchroom.

Ford won the vacant belt with a 12-round stoppage of Otabek Kholmatov in March, and while ‘Savage’ isn’t an elite-level boxer, he is certainly a talented performer.

Ball is a come-forward pressure fighter, who will look to walk down his opponent, but those tactics fell short against exposed Mexican Rey Vargas last time out. The Merseyside man is unlikely to change his approach against Ford and that could prove a mistake.

Filip Hrgovic v Daniel Dubois

Filip Hrgovic has fought only one fighter of any note in a 17-bout professional career and produced an underwhelming performance. The power of Zhilei Zhang caused the Croatian plenty of problems and Daniel Dubois’ heavy hands could do the same.

Of course, ‘Triple D’ has come up short against Joe Joyce and Oleksandr Usyk, but the Greenwich fighter has at least mixed it at the top level on a few occasions and a shock Queensbury victory is on the cards.

Zhilei Zhang v Deontay Wilder

Talking of Zhang, the Chinese heavyweight is back to take on Deontay Wilder. ‘Big Bang’ was bitterly disappointing when losing to Joseph Parker in Saudi Arabia earlier this year, but Parker is a hugely improved fighter and the Kiwi pummeled Wilder last time out.

The ‘Bronze Bomber’ has it all to prove, but the Alabama man’s punching power will still be a huge asset. Go under the rounds in what should be an explosive contest.
