Where are the close fights for boxing gambling fans

Sports gambling fans who enjoy gambling on boxing don’t appear to have many potentially close bouts in the near future, with James DeGale 100/1 on for his fight tomorrow and Wladimir Klitschko 40/1 on for Saturday’s fight. The closest appears to be Amir Khan’s bout with Lamont Peterson on Sunday, and even that fight has Amir Khan at 14/1 on with Paddy Power and 12/1 on with Ladbrokes. To achieve any reasonable pay out on fights like this, boxing gambling fans need to look to the round betting odds, unless of course they fancy Peterson to cause a major upset and win the fight. As usual, both Paddy Power and Ladbrokes are offering odds on a Khan win in a specific round, with odds varying from 20/1 for a first round win with Paddy Power, 16/1 for rounds 2 and 11, and 12/1 for rounds 3 to 9 inclusive. Ladbrokes odds are slightly different and you can get 14/1 on rounds 3,4 and 10. Boxing fans interested in round gambling can also select groups of rounds in which they think the fight will finish, at lower odds of course, and if they believe the fight will go the distance Ladbrokes are offering 6/4 on a points win for Khan. There are some boxing pundits who think that Khan may be taking this fight too lightly, and point to the fact that he has hardly said anything in public about this fight preferring to talk about a possible match with Floyd Mayweather Jr. next year, and reiterating again that he will never fight his friend and training partner Manny Pacquiao. If you are a boxing gambling fan who agrees with this opinion, maybe odds of 7/1 on a Peterson win would be worth a gamble. Talking of Manny Pacquiao, he has apparently suffered a serious cut in his last fight and there is some speculation that his scheduled fight with Mayweather in May next year might not take place after all. The conspiracy theorists are of course already saying that Pacquiao’s reputation as the best pound for pound fighter in the boxing world would suffer a significant blow should he lose to Mayweather, and he may be having second thoughts about that fight.
