Jaron Ennis vs Karen Chukhadzhyan Odds
Here’s a look at how the bookies are calling this fight ahead of the ring walks on Friday night:
- Jaron Ennis to win @ 1/10 (1.02)
- Karen Chukhadzhyan to win @ 12/1 (13.00)
This weekend is due to deliver a few one-sided fights, and this is shaping up to be one of them. The bookies are giving Ukraine’s Chukhadshyan virtually no chance in this clash, with Ennis a 98% favourite to win on odds of 1/10 (1.02) against Chukhadzhyan’s 12/1 (13.00). Despite this heavy discrepancy in the outright winner betting market, there are still some excellent bets to be made once we dive a little deeper into some potential proposition bets.
Best Jaron Ennis vs Karen Chukhadzhyan Betting Tips
Those looking to put some money on this fight will want to consider the following two bets, depending on the level of risk you’re looking for in your bets:
Ennis to Win in Round 1-3 @ 11/10 (2.10)
When it comes to vicious knockout machines, America’s Jaron Ennis is about as good as it gets in boxing. Since his professional debut in 2016, Ennis has fought 29 times for 29 wins, 27 of which were by knockout. Only twice have fighters gone the distance with the 25-year-old, and the last time it happened was over five years ago, in the second year of Ennis’ career. Since then, he’s knocked out 17 men, forced two to retire, and had one no-contest.
While a knockout seems like a foregone conclusion here, the betting market isn’t particularly lucrative. What does have a healthy return and offers an opportunity for bettors to double their money at 11/10 (2.10), is betting on Ennis to win in the first three rounds. Of his past 14 completed fights, 10 have finished within three rounds. Only four times have opponents extended fights beyond the third round, and given that Chukhadzyhan is fighting on the largest stage of his life, it’s unlikely he’ll provide enough resistance to buck this trend.
Ennis to Win in the First Round @ 7/1 (8.00)
For even more lucrative odds, punters can take a risk and bet on exactly which round Ennis will finish this fight in. We say that your best bet is to wager on the American coming out swinging, and getting this one done within the opening round. Ennis will be fired up to win this title fight, having been deprived of the IBO World Welterweight title in 2020 due to an accidental headbutt.
In the past five years, Ennis has won four fights in the first round. Most recently, the 25-year-old knocked out Thomas Dulorme in 2021 after just 1:49 with a right hook, straight left combination. There’s every chance he’ll be zoned into this fight, and looking to avoid being robbed of an title for the second time by unfortunate circumstances.
