Dixon vs. Carabajal: Fighter Previews

Rhiannon Dixon

Dixon currently has an undefeated record of 9 wins and 0 losses and has successfully defended both the Commonwealth and European championships. This WBO championship bout is the natural progression for a boxer with a clear path to becoming a champion. However, while she has had a successful career, she has not had the same level of greatness as Carabajal.

Dixon’s absolute supremacy after transitioning to professional status in 2019 has been almost unparalleled. Examine her record, and you will discover that she has never been defeated in a fight and has seldom lost even a single round. In her last fight, she decisively defeated former WBC interim champion Katharina Thanderz without allowing her to score a round, thus winning the European championship. Dixon has shown an exceptional level of invincibility so far, impervious to all challenges posed by her opponents.

 

 

Karen “Burbuja” Carabajal

Carbajal, 33, has extensive knowledge and experience in competing against top performers. She only suffered one defeat, a unanimous decision loss to Katie Taylor in the undisputed lightweight title match. Although she did not emerge victorious against the renowned Irish figure, enduring ten rounds in the presence of probably the most exceptional female fighter of all time is quite an accomplishment.

Notably, the Taylor loss, which occurred at Wembley Arena in 2022, is the only instance that Carbajal has competed in a contest outside of her own country of Argentina. ‘Burbuja’ has, however, achieved some impressive victories in her own country, including her recent triumph over former unified world champion Edith Matthysse, which set up the Dixon bout well for her. That said, Carbajal has not yet shown her ability to excel as a global competitor. This will be her first encounter with Dixon, and it will be interesting for online betting fans to see how their styles and strategies match up.

Dixon vs. Carabajal: Main Event Breakdown & Analysis

Carbajal has exceptional stamina, resilience, and a wealth of knowledge gained from years of experience. Her style is characterized by aggressive counter-punching and a strong defensive game. For Dixon, outside of experience, she has it all. Excellent footwork and beautiful technique have allowed her to outwit the competition repeatedly. She is known for her precision and accuracy, often landing clean shots and avoiding her opponents’ attacks.

Both boxers, with four knockouts each in their combined 32 professional bouts, are not known for delivering those fight-ending punches. This suggests a strategic, tactical battle where every move counts. With that said, it’s safe to say that outside of a catastrophic downfall, this fight is heading to the judge’s scorecards, adding to the intrigue and suspense.

 

The Best Betting Pick: Dixon To Win On Points (-250)

I cannot see anything beyond Dixon in this bout, and I completely agree with the current Las Vegas boxing odds. The Warrington pugilist has had little difficulty in her nine professional bouts, and based on what we have seen, Carbajal does not seem to possess the ability to defeat her fellow competitors in what’s anticipated to be the highly touted Brit’s perfect coming-out party to championship status.

Not only does Dixon possess a world-championship level coach in Anthony Crolla, but she also enters Saturday with a roaring Manchester crowd in support and, most importantly, cleaner, more technical boxing skills.

As previously mentioned, don’t expect heavy leather in this one. Still, a unanimous decision victory for the hometown favorite is unquestionably the highest probable scenario and is also a stronger value position at the sportsbook instead of the moneyline.

 

 

  • Dixon is an undefeated pro boxer (9-0)
  • Both boxers have accumulated just four KOs during their respective careers
  • Carabajal has never won a contest outside of Argentina
