Gavin Gwynne vs Mark Chamberlain Prediction: Lightweight Brits Hoping To Overshadow The Big Men



Gavin Gwynne vs Mark Chamberlain Prediction: Lightweight Brits Hoping To Overshadow The Big Men

The eyes of the fight sports world will once again be turned to Saudi Arabia on Friday. Whilst the main and co-main events feature some of the biggest names in the heavyweight division, further down the card there is an intriguing all British bout in the lightweight division.

We've got all the information you need in our Gwynne vs Chamberlain Prediction.

The Saudis have paid the big bucks in order to get the big men to the Middle East but the smaller guys can still provide plenty of the entertainment on the night.

Gwynne vs Chamberlain Prediction

The world rankings are stacked in the lightweight division but there's always fun to be had in a domestic tear up.

This one gives us a match up between an experienced fighter and an up and comer with an undefeated record, looking to extend it. 

Will the 0 be in tact come the final bell? We're here to take you through what you need to know about both men in our Gwynne vs Chamberlain Prediction.

Gavin Gwynne Preview

Welshman Gwynne is certainly the experienced man going into this one on Friday. The 33 year old has been in the professional ranks since 2016, fighting on some big British cards.

He’s had 20 fights so far and has mostly enjoyed wins during his career.

Gwynne has a 17-2-1 record so far but, despite that, will have to overcome the odds and his opponent's record this week. 

The man from Merthyr Tydfil has had a pretty decent time of it himself in the boxing ring. Of his two defeats, only one of them has been by stoppage, which came against James Tennyson, when the British title was on the line.

His only other L came against fellow Welshman Joe Cordina. That's not bad considering Cordina is undefeated and now the IBF Super featherweight world champion, and Gwynne only lost via the judges’ decision. 

That kind of determination may play a part in our Gavin Gwynne vs Mark Chamberlain prediction for this weekend.

Despite only losing twice, it certainly hasn't been an easy route for Gwynne. He's spoken this week about how he nearly quit the sport four years ago. 

However he has worked his way up the British and European ranks and has held domestic gold once before, after losing to Cordina.

A win here would likely put him on course for another attempt at winning the Lonsdale belt, with reigning champ Sam Noakes expected to be up next for the victor

Mark Chamberlain Preview

Portsmouth native Chamberlain comes into this one without a loss on his professional record so far. He'll hope to fly out of the Middle East with that record intact. 

The 25 year old turned professional six years ago and has had just 14 paid fights to date.

That has been long enough to earn himself a very good reputation on home soil, in England. That reputation also involves have the nickname “Thunder,” which fits perfectly for him.

Four of his wins have been decided by the judges, or the referee's scoring, with the other 10 by stoppage. That gives him a 71% conversion rate of early finishes, pretty impressive. 

The southpaw certainly has the punching power to trouble his more experienced opponent. Added to the fact that fighting a left hander can be tricky for anyone, and it’s no wonder that Chamberlain has had such an impressive start to life as a professional boxer. 

The victory over Marc Vidal in 2022 earned him the vacant European title at the weight and he’s defended it three times. All of those defenses have come at London’s famous York Hall arena, which has become somewhat of a home venue for him.

His most recent defense came against Latvian Artjoms Ramlavs. That fight proved that opponents can get to Chamberlain, who was cut during the fight, but he has heart. With the defending champion winning with a 10th round stoppage despite blurry vision from the vaseline that had been used above his eye.

That ability to come through adversity will certainly come into our thinking in our Gwynne vs Chamberlain prediction. 

Gavin Gwynne vs Mark Chamberlain Prediction: Thunder To Bolt His Name To British Title Contention

Our Gwynne vs Chamberlain prediction comes down to whether or not we believe the younger man can continue his impressive record of stopping his opponents. 

He’s heading into this one as the -310 favorite on the Moneyline, with Gwynne the unfancied underdog at +240. There isn’t too much value in backing the man from Portsmouth simply to have his hand raised.

However, the 25 year old can be found at +150 to win the fight by TKO/KO and that certainly seems his most likely route to victory. 

His last three wins have all come inside the distance but they’ve been at very different times in the fight. Ramlavs was in the 10th, Marvin Demollari was in the 1st and Vairo Lenti was in the 5th. We don’t think it’ll go further than the Ramlavs fight so under 10.5 rounds at +125 seems like good value.

We’ll take it ending in the first half of the fight as our final prediction, with Chamberlain winning from rounds 1-6 at +550. The second half of the fight is priced at +300.
