Anthony Joshua defends his World Heavyweight Title belts against Andy Ruiz, Jr. on June 1 at Madison Square Garden. This bout was somewhat hastily thrown together, with original challenger Jarrell Miller popping positive for PEDs. Normally, that would result in a depreciated replacement, but Ruiz, Jr. might actually be a more-dangerous proposition for Joshua. Loot takes a close look at the underdog price and makes his value boxing pick!

Srisaket Sor Rungvisai takes on Juan Francisco Estrada in a rematch for the World Super Flyweight Title at the Inglewood Forum on April 26. These are two of the best 115-pounders in the world, with their first match a barn-burner at this same building in February of 2018. Srisaket Sor Rungvisai is a significant favorite at -240. Is that price too high to make a value pick on him?
There has been a bit of a schism in Vargas’ game of late, as he doesn’t use the best tactics. He seems to eschew his length and boxing ability by lying on the inside too much. That would seem to be an issue in this fight against the more-wooden and aging Soto, where a more-mobile approach would be the best route to victory. Does this style matchup make Soto’s big dog price more attractive? LL has the boxing pick!
