Boxing predictions for September 27-28. Will Britain’s up-and-coming heavyweight Daniel Dubois continue his rapid rise by making swift work of Ebenezer Tetteh? Can Errol Spence Jr unify the IBF and WBC welterweight titles when he faces Shawn Porter? And will David Benavidez regain the WBC super-middleweight belt when he takes on former champion Anthony Dirrell? Read on for all of our free predictions and betting tips for the boxing triple-header on September 27.

Daniel Dubois v Ebenezer Tetteh (September 27)

Daniel Dubois is aiming to continue his rapid ascent in the heavyweight division when he faces Ebenezer Tetteh for the vacant Commonwealth title at the iconic Royal Albert Hall. The 22-year-old Londoner is less than three years into his professional career, but there is plenty of hype surrounding him thanks to a flawless 12-0 record that has seen him beat two former world title challengers and dispatch 12 of his opponents inside the distance. His most recent outing, a five-round demolition of Nathan Gorman to clinch the British title back in July, was a career-best performance and Dubois is undoubtedly inching ever closer to breaking into the upper echelon of boxers in the heavyweight division. Many are touting ‘Dynamite’ as a future world champion, but all of that hype and momentum will go away if he fails to take care of Tetteh at the Royal Albert Hall. The aggressive 31-year-old boasts a perfect 19-0 record with 16 victories coming via stoppage, but he has never fought outside of his native Ghana and I do not believe he has the skill-set to do a number on Dubois, who showed power, precision and patience to take out Gorman in less than 15 minutes a couple of months ago. I expect to see a similar performance here as Dubois puts Tetteh on the back foot, knocks him out and takes another step closer to a top-10 ranking in the heavyweight division.

Errol Spence Jr v Shawn Porter (September 28)

Errol Spence Jr has established himself as the number one welterweight on the planet in recent years, according to Ring Magazine, but at this point in time the x-year-old holds only one of the recognised world titles in the division. Could that all change on September 27? Not only is the IBF champion defending his crown in Los Angeles, he is also challenging Shawn Porter for the WBC belt. Porter became a world champion for the second time in his career when he edged a decision win over Danny Garcia a year ago, and he has done a solid job of bouncing back from the defeat to Kell Brook back in the summer of 2014 which ended his first reign as a world champion. However, there was plenty of controversy surrounding his split decision win over Yordenis Ugas back in March – many felt the Cuban had won the fight – and in Spence Jr he is facing the man who outclassed the fighter that ended his first run as a world champion, Kell Brook. Brook outboxed Porter throughout that contest and if the Sheffield fighter can do that to ‘Showtime’ then what will Spence Jr do here. Porter is a one-dimensional, come-forward fighter who likes to bully his opponents and that is a massive problem when coming up against a man who is more skilful when it comes to the ‘sweet science’. Porter may have his moments early, but Spence Jr is the more classier operator and as the rounds go on he will start to pick apart the WBC champion on his way to a unanimous decision win.

Anthony Dirrell v David Benavidez (September 28)

David Benavidez is in danger of failing to live up to his potential. The 22-year-old is a former world champion already but his lack of discipline and maturity, highlighted by a failed drugs test a year ago, has threatened to derail his career even at this early stage. He did tear through the outmatched J’Leon Love in his return fight back in March, but that outing was nothing more than a ‘gimme’ fight before stepping up to bigger tests. One of those tests comes on Saturday night when he challenges Anthony Dirrell for the WBC title that was taken away from him when he tested positive for cocaine. Dirrell is a solid all-round fighter, but it is difficult to really find an aspect of the game in which he stands out and he has a tendency to run out of gas pretty quickly. He hardly won the vacant title in impressive fashion either, so it is difficult to see him successfully retaining against Benavidez. The challenger has a serious point to prove as he looks to regain the title he never lost inside the ring and I expect him to overwhelm the champion on his way to a comfortable points victory.
