Odds: 70% of Bets Come Down For Martin To Beat Joshua

William Hill, the proud sponsors of the IBF world title fight between Anthony Joshua and Charles Martin, are predicting up to £20 million will be bet globally on the card at the O2.
Joshua, the Golden Boy of British Boxing, is the 2/9 favourite for the fight but the majority (70%) of bets have been on the IBF title holder Charles Martin. (7/2)
However, William Hill are starting to see some large bets on Joshua winning the fight early. They’ve taken a £2000 bet 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. 
“There’s a split among boxing punters on who will win the fight, said William Hill spokesman Tony Kenny, but one thing everyone can agree on is that this fight won’t go the distance,”
    2/9 Anthony Joshua, 33/1 Draw, Charles Martin 7/2
    1/7 Lee Selby, 25/1 Draw, Eric Hunter 9/2
  1/33 George Groves, 33/1 Draw, David Brophy 10/1
 1/200 Conor Benn, 33/1 Draw, Luke Kelleher 25/1
  1/50 Jamie McDonnell, 33/1 Draw, Fernando Vargas 12/1
    6/5 Matthew Macklin, 22/1 Draw, Brian Rose 4/6
  1/25 Ohara Davies, 25/1 Draw, Andy Keates 9/1

I think some people recognise that Joshua is still a novice. My problem is i havent seen much of Martin, he seems like a calm, confident lad so am making him the favourite going into this fight. I like the…

Martin may be able to win this... We don't hold too many data for such a fight.

[QUOTE=Isaac Clarke;16593376]The odds are not worth betting on Joshua. Joshua also looked vulnerable in his last fight and Martin is a big puncher himself.[/QUOTE] Is he really. He has needed volume since stepping a bit and I mean a bit.…

[QUOTE=ianjamsie;16594038]Not by Martin. He just isn't good enough[/QUOTE] I watched their respective fights with Whyte & Dawejko. Doesn't appear to be a great difference in their boxing ability imo. Hope Joshua wins, but wouldn't be shocked to see an upset.
