WILL PUNTERS BE FURY-OUS?
WILLIAM HILL have taken two bets of £5000 each – one in a Manchester betting shop, the other placed in London – for unbeaten Neven Pajkic to become the first boxer to defeat unbeaten Tyson Fury when the pair meet for the Commonwealth Heavyweight title on C5 this weekend. As a result of the two bets, both struck at odds of 6/1, Hills have cut Canadian-based Pajkic to 11/2, while Fury’s odds have eased from 1/12 to 1/10.
‘Fury’s style always gives his opponent a chance if he can get close enough to land a decent shot, and anything can happen when two unbeaten records are on the line – we are 40/1 that they both emerge unbeaten after a draw!’ said Hill’s spokesman Graham Sharpe.
