Bridges vs Yoshida Deep Dive: Boxing Odds and Betting Preview

In a 10-round bantamweight bout on Saturday, Dec. 9, at the Chase Center, Ebanie Bridges will challenge Miyo Yoshida for the IBF Women’s World title.

Can the Aussie standout continue her reign as the IBF champ? Or will the short-notice replacement fighter, Yoshida, shock the world and capture bantamweight gold?

Bridges vs Yoshida: Fighter Previews

Ebanie “Blonde Bomber” Bridges

Bridges, currently residing and undergoing training in the UK, sustained an injury during her triumph over Shannon O’Connell, necessitating surgical intervention on her hand and subsequently leading to a prolonged period of inactivity.

Now returning to full training, the 37-year-old will be trying to make amends for lost time in her first bout in the US since early 2020.

Initially, she was scheduled to compete against her fellow countrywoman Avril Mathie. However, due to an injury, Mathie, who resides in Miami, had to withdraw from the competition. As a result, Yoshida was given the opportunity to participate at the last minute.

 

Miyo “Miyo Musashi” Yoshida

Yoshida, who formerly held the WBO championship title in the super flyweight division, recently suffered a defeat to Shurretta Metcalf and has lost three out of her past five matches.

Alternating wins and losses has been the story of Yoshida’s boxing and shoot boxing career. Although she boasts more experience and a height advantage, these factors don’t bode well for her chances this weekend, especially on short notice versus an eager champion.

Bridges vs Yoshida: Main Event Breakdown & Analysis

Bridges Fight Style & How Can Bridges Defeat Yoshida

Bridges faces a much simpler outing than her previously scheduled bout. While much of the focus has been on her eye-catching appearance, don’t let her looks fool you because Bridges has won 90% of her pro bouts and enters this bout as the rightful betting favorite.

Experience in big fights will undoubtedly favor the Aussie, and she has no fear of entering a brawl. Consistent pressure with relentless overhand strikes doesn’t present the most technical approach, but this brawling style has worked thus far.

Yoshida Fight Style & How Can Yoshida Defeat Bridges

Yoshida is the more technical of the two, and she’ll be susceptible to fighting off the back foot in this bout. However, the question most critics are pondering is whether or not she’ll engage in the brawling style of Bridges.

Based on her fight tape, it’s unlikely that the Japanese boxer will throw caution to the wind, and her attempts to box Bridges on the outside technically will be difficult but potentially the most viable path to victory if she can implement the perfect defensive strategy.

Best Boxing Betting Pick: Bridges by Decision (-275)

Our sportsbook hasn’t placed Bridges with a -600 moneyline because of her OnlyFans or the marketing strategies based around her appearance; she’s a brawler that will impose her will inside the ring.


Neither fighter has displayed much knockout power, and Yoshida’s durability is a notable aspect of her game. And for this reason, taking Bridges with your online boxing bets to win by decision does give us a slightly less juiced moneyline as opposed to placing a straight wager.

Questions Of The Day

Will Bridges’ finish the fight by KO?


Because Yoshida has never been stopped in the boxing ring via KO/TKO, and Bridges has gone the distance in 5 of her previous 7 bouts, a knockout finish is unlikely in this contest; so consider this before placing your boxing bets online.

Will Bridges' hand injury affect the odds?


If Bridges’ hand injury were serious, she simply wouldn’t be competing and defending her IBF bantamweight title this weekend. For this reason alone, I don’t envision the betting odds being affected.
