It may seem a long way off, however it will be on Saturday the 22nd of September 2018 that you will be able to watch the long awaited boxing match between Anthony Joshua v Alexander Povetkin, and if you are a fan of the sport of boxing then you will probably have already made up your mind as to which boxer is going to win that match!
In fact, the vast majority of boxing fans are of the mind that Anthony Joshua is going to win that match and win it quite decisively too, that view is also shared by all bookmakers and betting site operators, and as such the best odds I have so far come across today on Anthony Joshua winning are 1/9!
So for you to get any type of decent winning pay-out when betting on him on the outright winner betting markets you are going to have to put a fair seized bet on him. But having said that though you may be of the mind the match could and in a draw and if so the odds on it doing so are 33/1.
With the odds on Povetkin being so low that does of course mean that the odds of his opponent Alexander Povetkin are high, and if you do think it is he is going to win as opposed to the odds-on favourite then now would be a good time to secure the 6/1 odds on him doing so!
Method of Victory
There is a way for you to be able to secure some much higher odds on Anthony Joshua winning this match and that is by you trying to predict the method of victory that he will win by.
You have two option available to you on the method of victory betting markets the first of which is a bet currently offering you odds of 2/5 and that is a bet that will pay off if the match ends in a win for that boxer by either a Ko, Tko Or Disqualification.
If however you think that this match is going to be awarded to Joshua by points then the odds available are 10/3, which may just be a bet that does interest you!
Regarding the odds on the other boxer winning that being Alexander Povetkin, by a Ko, Tko Or Disqualification , those odds are quite appealing at 7/1, however if you are of the mind that he will win by points then there is certainly some value to be had at the current odds of 25/1!
The method of victory betting markets does also allow you to bet that the match will end in a draw, however for reference those odds are the same as are being offered on the outright winner betting markets and those odds are 33/1.
Make no mistake about it, if you want to have the chance of winning big when betting on this bout or in fact any other boxing match, it should be the round betting markets that you make use of, as with so many possible outcomes the odds available will be much higher than on any other boxing related betting markets!
As for which round you think that Joshua will win this match in the odds are 16/1, 12/1, 10/1 and 9/1 for him to win in rounds of, two three and four respectively, and you can also get odds of 8/1 that he will win in rounds five or six too.
The other possible round betting opportunities on him and the respective odds available are 10/1, 12/1, 14/1, 20/1, 25/1 and 33/1 that he will win in rounds 7 to 12 respectively. But do make sure that you do a little bit of shopping around and compare the round betting odds at different betting sites as occasionally one betting site may be offering you slightly higher odds on one individual round!
If however you are of the mind that it is going to be Alexander Povetkin that is going to win this match, then I really would urge you to make use of the round betting markets for the odds on offer on that boxer to win in each of the twelve rounds are going to be way too high for you to miss out on for sure!
Take for example the odds on offer for Povetkin to win in the very first round, if that is something you are convinced is going to happen you will be rewarded with some huge odds of 80/1, but if you think it will be in rounds, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8 or 9 that Povetkin will be declared the winner of this match the 66/1 odds are way too high for you to ignore.
There could of course be the very real chance that it could be in rounds, 10, 11 or 12 that Povetkin will win this match, and the odds on that being the outcome are 100/1.
However, do make sure that you weigh up the chances of either boxer winning and in just which round too as some of the possible outcomes are much more likely to occur and it will always be the case the odds available will reflect the chances of any boxer winning in each of the twelve rounds.
Will the Fight Go the Distance?
One final type of bet that is going to be on offer to you on this boxing match, and is also going to be on offer to you on any other upcoming boxing match is one designed to give you a 50/50 chance of picking the winning outcome.
That is of course the will the fight go the distance betting market on which you simply have to bet yes it will or not it won’t, the odds available however on this match going to full distance are 11/4, and for the match to be concluded before all 12 rounds have been played off the odds are 1/4.
