Parker’s odds cut ahead of Joshua heavyweight bout

RIVALS: Anthony Joshua and Joseph Parker

AHEAD OF this weekend’s world title bout between Anthony Joshua and Joseph Parker, fight sponsors, William Hill have reported that over two thirds of all bets have been for Parker to win and as a result, his odds have come in from 11/2 to 9/2 over the last couple of days. Joshua’s odds have drifted from 1/8 to 1/6 although he remains the overwhelming favourite to win this fight.

“For every bet we have taken on Joshua, we have taken two on Parker and we have had to reduce his price,” said William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly. “Joshua is 1/6 to win this one though and we expect more movement in the next 24 hours, possibly as the bigger punters come in for the red hot favourite.”

Joshua has been well backed in the round betting and the most selection of the entire fight has been Joshua in round 10 which is offered at 16/1.
