The comprehensive betting analysis from BetDeluxe for Sunday afternoon's main event between Devin Haney and Ryan Garcia in New York.

We’ve got all the best bets you need for Sunday’s Haney and Garcia fight and the evenly-poised match-up between John Ramirez & David Jimenez. 

Haney vs. Garcia

April 21st 1:00pm

This is the fight-hardened boxing fans have been waiting for.

Devin Haney will put his WBC super-lightweight title on the line this Sunday when he goes head-to-head with Ryan Garcia at the Barclays Center in New York.

Haney, who is currently an almost unbackable $1.11 to win the main event, will undoubtedly have the chest out & shoulders back when he enters the ring with his perfect 31-0 professional record.

He will look to defend his title for the first time since defeating Regis Prograis in the 140lbs category in December. That win made him a two-weight world champion after first being crowned the undisputed champion at lightweight with victories over George Kambosos Jr and Vasiliy Lomachenko.

The biggest question surrounding King Garcia is whether he is fully focused on the fight or not, having posted concerning conspiracy theories on social media in the lead-up. However, the former WBC Interim Lightweight World Champion gets his shot at the title as a long-priced $6.50 underdog. He was victorious over Oscar Duarte in December but there is no doubt is a significant step up.

These two fighters met six times as amateurs for a 3-3 record, but Haney has been a class above since turning professional. He’s not a knockout machine, so we’re expecting to win on points.

Suggested Bet: Haney to win @ $1.11

Ramirez vs. Jimenez

April 21st 10:40am

Clearly the most evenly matched fight on the card, John Ramirez & David Jimenez will clash for the vacant WBA interim super flyweight title.

‘Scrappy’ Ramirez enters the fight as the $1.53 favourite with BetDeluxe, having established an incredible 13-0 record with 9 KOs. He is the current #1-ranked WBA super flyweight after knocking Ronal Batista out in devastating fashion over four rounds in October. He has speed on both the outside and at short distance that should carry him to another win here.

As for Jimenez, the 32-year-old Costa Rican has age, height, and experience on his side. He boasts a professional record of 15-1 with a KO ratio of 73%. Basically, he doesn’t love to take any sort of defensive approach.

This is sure to be the fight of the night from an anyone-could-ultimately-win point of view, but the high in-ring IQ and footwork of the younger American means we’ll take the $1.53 on offer.

Suggested Bet: Ramirez to win @ $1.53
