Saturday night will see two undefeated flyweights step into the ring together to contest the WBA World Flyweight belt.

Artem Dalakian vs David Jimenez – Match Prediction
Here at Pundit Feed, we love our boxing bets. Below are the two best wagers we’d suggest making on Dalakian vs Jimenez this Saturday night:
David Jimenez to Win @ 2.00 (1/1)
There’s no doubting that this will be a close match. With odds of 4/5 against 1/1, it’s always an indication that the bookies are on the fence about who they believe will win. We say that backing Jimenez here is a strong bet though.
While both fighters are undefeated, a big point of difference is how active they’ve been. Jimenez got in the ring three times last year, scoring two knockouts and a majority decision win. Dalakian’s last fight came in 2021. The reality is, with such fine margins between the two boxers, Jimenez being a little more match fit and having the momentum of recent wins behind him could be the distinguishing factor that gets the Costa Rican over the line.
Fight Not to Go the Distance @ 11/10 (2.10)
These two boxers have 24 knockouts between them, from 33 fights. Specifically, Dalakian has won four of this last five by knockout, while Jimenez is not far behind, having won three of his last four by knockout.
With such a high percentage of both their fights ending early, it’s hard to see this fight going all the way to the final bell. Both men possess the power and eye necessary to execute a knockout, and will be hungry to prove themselves in the biggest fight of their lives. Pick this one not to go the distance, for a healthy doubling of your money plus change.

With these two bets in mind, here’s a look at each fighter’s path to this clash.

David Jimenez of Costa Rico also holds an undefeated record, and will be looking to stay that way. Across his 12 professional fights, the 30-year-old has nine knockouts to his name.
