ANTHONY JOSHUA’S first tilt at a world boxing title has been confirmed for April 9 against Charles Martin and William Hill have priced up plenty of markets on the big fight.
The highly-anticipated IBF showdown at London’s O2 Arena sees challenger Joshua the 1-7 favourite while Martin, who beat Vyacheslav Glazkov to win the world title in his last fight, is a 9-2 shot to defend his belt – with the draw available at 33-1.
William Hill spokesman Tony Kenny said: “Anthony Joshua has long been built up as a future world champion – now he’s got his chance to live up to the hype. AJ is our red-hot favourite to claim the title but ‘Prince’ Charles Martin has knocked out 21 of his 24 previous opponents and shouldn’t be underestimated.”
