BOOKIES are predicting a £20million betting bonanza on tonight’s big fight special at the O2.
Anthony Joshua, the golden boy of British Boxing, is 2-9 favourite but William Hill revealed 70 per cent of bets they’ve taken have been on his opponent, IBF title holder Charles Martin.
However, Hills are starting to see some large bets on Joshua winning the fight early. They’ve taken a £2000 wager at 8-1 on AJ winning in the opening round and two £1000 bets at 7-1.
Joshua, who has KO’d all of his 15 pervious opponents, is a short-priced 3-10 shot to stop the defending champ.
Hills spokesman Tony Kenny said: “There’s a split among boxing punters on who will win the fight but one thing everyone can agree on is that this fight won’t go the distance.”
Aside from the boxing there’s plenty more sporting action today so let’s hear all your tips and chat and Jordan will add his NBA picks below.
