The Line: Groves -138/ Smith +110 Over/Under: See the Latest Odds
British fighter, George Groves, will defend his WBA super-middleweight title at the World Boxing Super Series Final. This fight is set to take place at the King Abdullah Sports City in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia. The champions will be fighting another British fighter, Callum Smith. This fight is taking place after both boxers won their quarterfinal and semifinal fights. Those wins would have given the fighters tons of confidence which they will look to use in this fight. This should mean that we will be able to witness a great fight.
Callum Smith enters this fight with an unbeaten professional boxing record of 24 wins and no losses. This is extremely impressive and his wins have been over quality opponents such as Nieky Holzken and Erik Skoglund. At the height of 6ft 3in, Callum Smith is a very tall fighter and that has made it very hard for opponents due to angles which are involved. This is something that Smith has used very well all his career and it is something he will look to use again in this fight.

The champion, George Groves, on the other hand, has a record of 28 wins and 3 losses. He is a much more experienced fighter and this is the third time he will be defending his belt. Out of all his challengers, this will be the toughest. Groves will need to be at the top of his game and counter the added height that Callum Smith possesses. This adjustment is not always easy but it is something that he needs to do if he is to win this fight.
This is going to be an exceptional fight since both fighters are world-class. While picking a winner is not easy, I am going to pick Callum Smith to win. Smith has been a very impressive fighter all his career and I think this is the time when he will shine and win a major title. I think the height and power of Callum Smith will be too much for George Groves. We are getting a great price to wager on Callum Smith so that is the bet which I am going to suggest we make.
