An exciting boxing fight between two undefeated light-heavyweights is set to take place on 15 May at Manchester’s AO Arena. The Brit rising star Joshua Buatsi will defend his WBA International belt against the Frenchman Daniel Blenda Dos Santos. As Buatsi vs Dos Santos betting odds indicate Buatsi is a massive favorite to get an easy win.
Buatsi vs Dos Santos for the WBA International light-heavyweight title has become a headline fight for a big night of boxing, as per DAZN. It was supposed to be on the card of the unification main event between Terri Harper and Hyun-Mi Choi. But, fate intervened and Harper had an unfortunate hand injury during her final sparring session. Thus now it is Buatis vs Dos Santos for the main event. The ring walk will take place after 22:00 local time in the United Kingdom on 15 May.
Buatsi, the more popular prospect of the two, is the favorite, according to all online sportsbooks in the United Kingdom. Whereas, Dos Santos has a very slim chance at Buatsi vs Dos Santos betting odds. The reason is that he lacks experience at a high level, despite showing toughness in the ring.
Buatsi vs Dos Santos betting odds favor a KO for Buatsi
The Rio 2016 Olympian has an impressive record of 13-0, with 11 KOs. His last fight was against Croatia’s Marki Calic back in October, when he stopped his opponent in the seventh round. Later he teamed up with new trainer Virgil Hunter, who guided the career of pound-for-pound star Andre Ward. He is about to have his first fight under the guidance of Hunter.
This fight will be Buatsi’s sixth WBA International light-heavyweight title defense fight. With the new coach and an ultimate goal of a World title fight, Buatsi will likely step up his game. The momentum is big, according to online sportsbook news in the United Kingdom. Therefore, Buatsi vs Dos Santos betting odds are at 1.01 to win and 1.11 to score a KO, as per Bet365 Sportsbook.
Dos Santos has a very low profile
The 30-year-old Frenchman is undefeated in 15 fights, with eight of these fights coming inside the distance. He has been very active winning two fights in 2021. The latest ended with a first-round stoppage. What is more, Dos Santos has never lost a single round yet.
However, all of that is not massively relevant because he never got into a title fight. Unlike Buatsi he kept a very low profile. With the lack of experience at a high level, it is hard to expect him to put on a great show. But, boxing is always full of surprises, and a win may come from nowhere with 15.00 odds for Dos Santos.
