MINTY BETS: I'm Minty Bets, and joining me as always is Kevin Iole. This Saturday in Saudi Arabia, we've got the highly anticipated rematch for the unified heavyweight title between Oleksandr Usyk, minus 190, and Anthony Joshua, plus 140. Kevin, these odds are pretty close, so is there any value with the dog here?

KEVIN IOLE: I don't think so. You know what, I think Usyk is a lot better boxer. And I don't think the public really appreciates how good Oleksandr Usyk is, Minty. If you look at it, this guy is an Olympic gold medalist. He became the undisputed cruiserweight champion, and he rolled through a field in the Muhammad Ali Tournament and the World Boxing Super Series that was an incredible star-studded field. He rolled through that.

And now he's moved up to heavyweight, and he defeated Joshua in September to become the unified heavyweight champion. I think he does it again. Joshua's size is something he didn't really implement in that last fight, and so can imagine that AJ is going to come forward and maybe try to implement his size and impose his will.

So, yeah, I'm going to go ahead and take Usyk to win this fight. I'll lay the $1.90. I think Usyk wins. It's probably going to be my decision, but it wouldn't shock me if he gets the knockout. I'm going to go ahead with the reigning champion to retain the belt in this one. I got Oleksandr Usyk minus $1.90.

MINTY BETS: Thank you so much, Kevin.

KEVIN IOLE: Thanks, Minty.
