A few short days ago we reported the odds that were available for this weekend's WBO Bantamweight title bout between the unbeaten Tomoki Kameda (30-0, 9) and Mexico's tough Alejandro Hernandez (28-10-2, 15). Since then we have seen the fighters face off and we have seen more markets become available.
At the face off we heard some interesting comments, especially from Hernandez who seemed to suggest that Kameda "wasn't a real Mexican" but that he "wanted to be a Mexican" and that if he was "really was a Mexican" this fight would take place. We assume this was lost in translation somewhere but the comments still seemed interesting. From Kameda the promise was of a KO, which would make him just the second man to stop Hernandez in his tough career.
Interestingly the actual "to win" odds haven't changed much since we first reported them. Kameda is still widely available at 1/10 by Hernandez is still the clear under-dog, though you can now get 7/1 on him as he has drifted slightly. As for the draw it's still priced at 25/1.
Recently we have seen two new markets open up on the bout. One is the method of victory whilst the other is the "To go the distance" market. Sadly these market are only available on betfair.com and at the moment there is no liquidity in either market suggesting that the demand for bets in either market is small to say the least. Hopefully this will change in the next 24 hours or so however we aren't suspecting much of a change sadly.
