The #TeamSouthpawJab Predictions League!

Who will come out on top in our predictions league?

Here we are with the first week of the Southpaw Jab predictions league. You can play along yourself and see if you know better than some of the writers for Southpaw jab and some of the boxers in Team Southpaw Jab. As this is the first week there’s no table yet, despite Adam’s request for one because at least he’d be top alphabetically for a week!

An early front runner was picked by Adam, namely our young amateur team member Tommy Murphy, who when interviewed by Adam a few weeks back at the Hayemaker Ringstar show at York Hall called all the results on the nose! So if you’re a betting person, you might want to take note of what Tommy thinks.

Unfortunately we’ve not got full Team Southpaw Jab participation as some people didn’t reply to the WhatsApp message that was sent around. I’m looking at you Hannah, Darryll, Wadi, Phil and Ross! However we’ve still got a good showing enough to take this forward, and the more you play, the more points you pick up.

It should also be interesting to see how our boxers fare against our writers, so do join us on Twitter and Facebook with your predictions, and let’s have some fun!

The Rules!

Simply put, educated guesses have to be made as to the outcome of the big fights the coming weekend. For example:

If Anthony Joshua stops Joseph Parker in round 8

  • If the prediction was “AJ KO round 8” there will be 3 points awarded for correct winner, method and round
  • If the prediction was “AJ KO round 2” there will be 2 points awarded for the correct winner and method
  • If the prediction was “AJ Unanimous Decision” there will be one point awarded for the correct winner

If Joseph Parker wins by Unanimous Decision

  • If the prediction was “Parker points UD” there will be 3 points awarded for correct winner, method and decision
  • If the prediction was “Parker points Split Decision” there will be 2 points awarded for correct winner and method
  • If the prediction involved a KO win for Parker and he wins by decision, there will be one point awarded for the correct winner

If anyone wants to put their neck on the line for a DQ win or anything way out like that (which someone has done this week!), they will receive a bonus point on top of a full 3, so 4 over all. But if it’s not a DQ the best they can hope for is 1 point, or 2 if it is a stoppage and they got the correct round.

This week we are covering four fights, but only busy weeks we may throw a chance for more points in. On quiet weeks, you might see a wild card appear!

The four fights we will be covering this week are:

  • Anthony Joshua vs Joseph Parker
  • Alexander Povetkin vs David Price
  • Ryan Burnett vs Yonfrez Parejo
  • Josh Kelly vs Carlos Molina

The Predictions!

Chris Waddams (Southpaw Jab editor)

  • Joshua vs Parker: I think the fight will go very similar to the Joshua Whyte fight – AJ will get wobbled but stay up, then break his opponent down. I’ll even say in the same round! AJ KO round 7
  • Povetkin vs Price: Povetkin KO round 2
  • Burnett vs Parejo: Burnett is class, I can’t see past a win for him. I’m torn on a late stoppage or points. I’ll go with points. Burnett points UD
  • Kelly vs Molina: Hearn has been good at pitting his up and comers against more established names at the right time. I think Kelly is going to look good here. Kelly KO round 8

Fabio Wardley (Team Southpaw Jab member)

  • Joshua vs Parker: Parker will pick up the early rounds on pure work rate and volume alone but will then drop off and get caught. AJ KO round 9
  • Povetkin vs Price: Povetkin KO round 6
  • Kelly vs Molina: I think Kelly will be too slick and sharp. I think the knockdown will come from a body shot. Kelly KO round 8

  • Joshua vs Parker: AJ to win KO round 9
