It will be followed by two events every week with no fans most likely at Las Vegas MGM.
The other worthy fighters at 2020 June best boxing bets are the former champions Jessie Magdaleno and Jose Pedraza. They might not be the particular ones you are waiting for, but they can bring excitement to the boxing scene. Before you check the top fixtures here, have a look at our review about 22BET Sportsbook for the best odds of all boxing fights coming up in June.
Shakur Stevenson vs Rafael Rivera
The WBO featherweight champ Shakur Stevenson with a record of 13-0 (7KOs) will likely face Rafael Rivera on June 9 in a non-title bout. The 22-year-old is coming off a win by decision against Joet Gonzalez. He was very much staying in shape thus expected to make an impressive performance as usual. Accordingly, his value stands at -10000 to get a victory, as per the 22BET Sportsbook.
His opponent Rafael Rivera holds a record of 27-4-2, with the four losses taking place in the last six fights. It is no surprise that he is a massive underdog with +1700 odds. However, you should keep in mind that Rivera is currently in Mexico. Thus, he might face visa restrictions to travel to the US due to the current situation. If that happens, Robeisy Ramirez will likely be his replacement, but the odds for Stevenson vs Ramirez are yet to be made available.
Jessie Magdaleno vs Yenifel Vicente
The former junior featherweight world titleholder Jessie Magdaleno will likely face Yenifel Vicente in a 10-round bout at 128 pounds on June 11. Magdaleno with a record of 27-1 (18KOs) has been maintaining a good weight and he is very anxious to get back to the ring. By the latest WBC rankings, Magdaleno is No. 1 at featherweight, which means Vicente will be nothing more than a test before a title fight. Not to mention that Vicente has lost his last fight against Rodolfo Hernandez Montoya in October.
Magdaleno has won two fights in a row at featherweight, including against Rivera and former junior featherweight Rico Ramos. These two wins were his come back of the 11th-round knockout to Isaac Dogboe in 2018. Magdaleno will likely keep the momentum, thus you can choose him safely as one of your 2020 June best boxing bets with -10000 odds. Whereas Vicente values +1500.
Jose Pedraza vs Mikkel LesPierre
The former two-division champion Jose Pedraza is coming off a bitter loss against Jose Zepeda in September. At the age of 31, he holds a record of 26-3 with 13 KOs. Pedraza has been seriously slowing down in recent years, thus he badly needs a strong comeback. It might be his next fight against Mikkel LesPierre with -2500 odds in a 10-rounder at 141 pounds on June 18. LesPierre is the underdog with +1050 odds, but he will certainly put up a tough fight after winning against Roody Pierre Paul in December.
