Dalton Smith v Sam O’Maison Boxing Betting Tips & Predictions

Dalton Smith will be looking to remain undefeated when he takes on Sam O’Maison in a Battle of Britain and Yorkshire bout on Saturday evening.

The two Sheffield fighters will share the ring at the Sheffield Arena with the vacant British super lightweight title on the line.

The crowd support will all be home-based, but I think Smith will have a few more fans there than O’Maison.

Smith is currently unbeaten as a professional fighter. He has won all of his 11 pro bouts with nine of them coming by way of knockout with two by decision.

The 25-year-old is quietly making his way through the division. His best victory so far was against Lee Appleyard last May when he stopped him in the sixth round at the AO Arena in Manchester.

O’Maison has a professional record of 21 fights, 17 wins, three defeats and one draw. He comes into this fight on the back of a points success over Serge Ambomo.

O’Maison is now 31 years of age, and without being too harsh, I think this is the level he will remain at. Smith, on the other hand, has the potential to go to top of the rankings.

Smith is currently ranked number 15 by the WBA, and he knows that by winning the vacant British title he will move closer to a top 10 position.

I cannot see past Smith in this one. His punching power will be too strong for O’Maison and he will claim a stoppage victory inside six rounds.

Dalton Smith v Sam O’Maison Boxing Betting Tips & Predictions: Fighter’s Predictions

Dalton Smith: “World Championship boxing at Hillsborough’s the goal, so headlining the arena for the British Title is a great milestone along the way. It’s a venue that has seen some huge fights – Naz, Nelson, Hatton and Brook to name a few. Now I feel it’s my turn. Sam is heavy-handed and an awkward southpaw, but I think my best beats his best so that’s what I need to deliver. It’s going to be a right atmosphere!”

Sam O’Maison: “When I found out about this fight I was over the moon, becoming British Champion has been a childhood dream of mine. I know Dalton fairly well and sparred him a few times, so I know this fight won’t be easy by any means, these calibre of fights never are but I 100 per cent believe in myself. The icing on the cake for me is that it’s a Sheffield derby at the Sheffield Arena! No doubt the atmosphere will be electric, knowing Sheffield supporters! Roll on August 6.”
