Two contrasting bouts for boxing gambling fans

This is another weekend for sports gambling enthusiasts to get their teeth into, particularly those of us who enjoy gambling on boxing. We have two fights this weekend, one is an important title fight and the other can only be described as a grudge match. First up is David Haye against Dereck Chisora at 10.00pm, and this is a fight which many believe should not be taking place at all following both boxer’s recent disciplinary problems. Most boxing gambling experts have Haye as a clear odds-on favourite with Paddy Power offering just 3/10 on a Haye victory. If you fancy Chisora to cause an upset you can get 5/2 on a win. If you’re a real fan of gambling on boxing, you can take in Amir Khan’s bout from Los Angeles at 3.00am on Sunday morning. This fight was originally scheduled as a contest for the WBC World Light Welterweight Championship, but Khan has now had his WBA Championship reinstated following Lamont Peterson’s failed drug test, so this fight is now a reunification bout for both titles. There are of course many fans of gambling on boxing who still believe that the Peterson fight was a travesty of justice and that Khan actually won that fight in spite of the penalty points he incurred, but at least he now has an early chance to put the record straight. Most boxing gambling pundits consider Khan to be a definite odds-on favourite to walk away from this fight with both titles, and Paddy Power have gone as far as offering just 1/5 on a Khan win. His opponent on Sunday morning is Danny Garcia who is rated as a 7/2 bet with Paddy Power. Amongst sports gambling fans gambling on boxing is a popular gambling opportunity, but we rely totally on the expertise of the judges for a points verdict so let’s hope there is no repeat of the recent controversies in this area of American boxing.
