I have ended in profit for the last couple of years, but the win-loss ratio needs improving to really start piling up the numbers. That is the key for the upcoming year, although Boxing has proven to be a sport which offers some very nice prices on outcomes once you look beyond the simple outright markets where you do tend to get some very heavy favourites week to week.
There are going to be some big fights in the year ahead and the biggest may be the potential two bouts Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder will be competing in. The first of those is definitely scheduled for this month and the outcome by decide whether we need to see another later in the year, while the Heavyweights under the Matchroom banner are all going to be in action before the midway point of the 2020 year.
A couple of those potential fights are intriguing, but I think some of the biggest bouts that can be put together come from the lower weights and hopefully 2020 is going to be the year we get to see those.
On Saturday it is the return of Kell Brook having been out of the ring for fourteen months, while Gary Russell Jr insists he will increase his activity in 2020 as he comes out in February with plenty of time to schedule another bout in this calendar year.
The cards in Sheffield and Allentown are not that deep, but it is the start of the Boxing Picks for 2020 and hopefully a positive start to come.
