Earlier today we were informed that British online bookmakers Bet365.com had become the first bookmakers to have priced up the end of year bout between Japan's Hisashi Amagasa (28-4-2, 19) and Cuban sensation Guillermo Rigondeaux (14-0, 9). Unsurprisingly Rigondeaux has been priced as the clear favourite.
When the market opened we were informed that Rigondeaux was priced at stunning 1/100, since then however he closed, marginally, to 1/80. Although Rigondeaux's odds have drifted slightly he is still the monster favourite with Amagasa priced at a huge 16/1.
With the bout being one of the final contests of 2014 the fight could, potentially be an upset of the year if Amagasa can pull it off.
At the moment there are no other odds on this bout other than the "to win" market, and even that lacks a draw option for now, though we suspect other bookies will join in and run this market. Hopefully they will also add other markets, not just from this fight but the other end of year bouts from Japan, many of which look a lot more competitive than this one.
