Joshua/Klitschko set to smash all betting records – AJ 1/2 to win the Wembley showdown

William Hill, sponsors of Joshua/Klitschko, have installed IBF world champion Joshua as their 1/2 favourite to win the Wembley showdown on April 29.

The bookies are predicting that over £10m will have been wagered by pugilistic punters by the time the fight gets underway.  This would make it the biggest turnover fight in the history of boxing.

William Hill have priced up full round betting on the fight and method of victory - with the most likely outcome in this  market a KO by Joshua at 8/11.

“We’re already starting to see heavy hitters  come in for Anthony Joshua, said William Hill spokesman Tony Kenny,

“It’s only early doors,  but the majority (61% ) of the money has been for AJ to beat Wladiimir at Wembley.”



Bout betting: 1/2 Anthony Joshua; 8/5 Wladimir Klitschko; 25/1 draw

Method of victory: 8/11 Joshua KO; 11/4 Klitschko by KO; 5/1 Joshua by decision; 6/1 Klitschko by decision
