Bet UK previews each fight, providing tips, analysis and odds:

Deontay Wilder vs Tyson Fury

December 1st at the Staples Centre, Los Angeles the WBC American title holder will face the British lineal champion in a tasty heavyweight encounter. Both fighters have a perfect record with a combined 67 wins and a combined 168 inch reach. It's fair to say that with all the trash-talk coupled with the talent of both boxers it's going to be full of talking points.

This is a classic boxer vs puncher match-up. Fury has levelled many fighters with a good stern jab, slipping and attacking the body. Although Fury could be coming off a little 'ring rust' if that actually exists. Wilder, on the other hand, comes with wild flurries, dynamite in both hands and a wild style that can catch anyone. Fury can win the fight with the jab and move approach. However, Wilder has great heart and cardio and will be dangerous every time he throws a punch. In Wilder's last 7 fights 3 of them have been finished between rounds 7-9 with his last one being round 10 against Luis Ortiz. Round Group Betting shows promising odds here.

Wilder to win in rounds 7-9

Vasyl Lomachenko vs Jose Pedraza

Vasyl Lomachenko (12-1) is set to face Jose Pedraza (25-1) in his first title unification bout at the Hulu Theatre, New York. Lomachenko is arguably the best pound for pound boxer on the planet, some pundits and boxing experts believe his name should be at the top GOAT list. The Ukrainian is the WBA champ and his counterpart holds the WBO title. Loma is coming off a wonderful 11th round TKO over Jorge Linares to become the fastest man ever to win three belts in three different weight classes. Pedraza, who is the former IBF super-featherweight champ has 12 KO/TKO wins to his name with his only loss coming from Floyd Mayweather prodigy, Gervonta Davis.

Lomachenko will look to use his speed and footwork to stifle his opponent. The Ukrainian is a smooth operator, who cuts unorthodox angles, which has proven to be too slick for his previous foes. The Puerto Rican however, has a long jab with a 5 and a half inch reach advantage. He will look to stick and move but I think Lomachenko will be too fast and too much to handle.

Rocky Fielding vs Canelo Alvarez

Canelo Alvarez and Rocky Fielding clash at Madison Square Garden for the WBA super middleweight title. Canelo is one of the best in world without question. He's faced the cream of the crop throughout his career, in front of sold out crowds in top venues. The Mexican is coming off a victory over GGG and the 'w' from 8 of his last 9 fights. With 50 wins from 53 fights and 34 by way of knockout: the 28-year-old is prizefighting royalty. Known for his extreme punching power and traditional Mexican style he's going to be tough for anyone to beat. The only time Canelo has ever looked less then impressive was against the GOAT Floyd Mayweather.

The next man in line is Rocky Fielding. with 27 wins from 28 fights he's not to be scoffed at. It's the Brit's debut across the pond and he's been relishing every moment leading up to the fight. the 31-year-old is 6'1" and he looks huge standing next Canelo at the press conference. Fielding is taking a huge step up in competition here, maybe even two or three steps up. The Brit has a methodical style, throwing a lot of hooks to the body and setting shots up from the behind the jab. The problem is that Fielding loads up his shots and asks for a lot of time, which he won't get against a top level boxer in Canelo.

I think Canelo will dominate the fight from start to finish, and will decide when he wants to end Fielding's night.

Canelo to win in rounds 4-6

Carl Frampton vs Josh Warrington

Josh Warrington (27-0) will put his IBF World Featherweight belt on the line along with his perfect record against former two-weight world champion Carl Frampton (26-1). The clash takes place at Manchester Arena on 22 December. The two fighters both have a wealth of experience and a boisterous fan following, which will make for an amazing atmosphere on the night. This bout will sign off a fast and furious festive period, with many British fighters lacing up the gloves.

The Leeds Warrior will be entering the ring for his fourth fight since 2017, plus he's coming off a huge scalp in his win over Lee Selby in May. Warrington outworked Selby in a bout of constant pressure, quick hands and flurries. He's not the most powerful puncher with just 6 knockouts in his professional career. He's very hard to outwork and with solid defensive skills he's a tough nut to crack.

Carl Frampton enters the contest with 15 knockouts to his name, winning 5 of his last 6 fights. Frampton trains with some top fighters and is a quality athlete with fast hands and good work on the inside and to the body. His name is held in high regard with some pundits putting him up for one of the best boxers in the UK.

This fight is going to be a rough affair with good boxing skills on show. I think this is going to be one of the best fights of the year. Warrington comes in at 17/10 underdog, which I think is excellent value.

Warrington to win
