Betting on featherweight fights

A featherweight boxer is under the weight limit which has a maximum of 126 pounds or about 57 kg for professionals.

The most recent news in the featherweight division was Mark Magsayo's victory over Gary Russell Jr., which ended Russell's long reign as WBC champion, and cast an uncertain future in a division that is now dominated by WBO champion Emanuel Navarrete (35-1).

Is anyone at featherweight really sure of their ranking apart from Navarrete? The Mexican is on a current streak where he has won 9 world championship bouts, including six knockouts. Make boxing bets on our online sports betting platform.

Magsayo (24-0) can legitimately claim the position of the second-best featherweight in the world with his WBC belt. That could still be the case for Gary Russell (31-2), when he clearly and legitimately fought one-handed with a shoulder injury against the Filipino.

The second best featherweight fighter could be Rey Vargas (35-0), but he still has some work to do in this weight division.

Ruben Villa (18-1) could be the second-best featherweight right now! He gave Navarrete a tough and tricky night in 2020 with his first career loss, albeit by unanimous decision.

Kid Galahad is also out of the running as he moved up to 130 super-featherweight class (all super featherweight bets). He lost his first title defence last November but we await to see how he performs in his next fight in March this year against the American, Jorge David Castaneda.

Recommended bets on the World Featherweight Championships

This featherweight division continues to be scattered, with four boxers holding four different belts and no reunification fights scheduled at this time. This is interesting for bettors as scheduled bouts offer an advantage for belt holders against untitled challengers.

It's difficult to understand why promoters can't agree to put on a big night of featherweight boxing.

But the year 2022 has got off to a strong start with several fights, and we can expect an action-loaded March, including some of the top ten featherweights.

Michael Conlan will finally get a chance to make a big statement on March 12, with Leigh Wood (6) on the other side of the ring. A week before, other upcoming fights will be promising between Joet Gonzalez (10) against Jeo Santisima and Mauricio Lara (2) against Emilio Sanchez, March 5.

Finally, there will be a much-anticipated featherweight fight between Kiko Martinez (5), who holds the IBF belt against Josh Warrington (3) on March 26.
