Just a few moments ago we noticed a couple of bookies had began to take bets on the upcoming WBC Light Flyweight world title bout between Japanese wonder-kid Naoya Inoue (6-0, 5) and Thai challenger Samartlek Kokietgym (17-4, 5).
At the time of writing only two bookies are taking bets on the bout and they only doing the straight "to win" market. Unsurprisingly however they both strongly favour Inoue to retain his belt.
Paddy Power currently offer the best odds on Inoue at 1/40 whilst rival firm Bet365 have priced the Japanese fighter at 1/50 to retain his world title. To say we'll not be touching him at those odds is to merely state the obvious.
Samartlek has, rightfully, been priced highly with Paddy Power again offering the best odds with the Thai given a 16/1 shot, marginally better than bet365 who have him priced at 15/1.
Strangely only Paddy Power have priced the draw with the odds there being 30/1.
We know boxing has upsets but if Inoue to lose his belt tomorrow it would have to go down as one of the biggest boxing upsets since the turn of the millennium.
