This weekend sees a mouth watering WBA Bantamweight title fight between unbeaten Japanese star Tomoki Kameda (31-0, 19) and British fighter Jamie McDonnell (25-2-1, 12). With the bout just 24 hours away we've had a look at the odds on the bout.
The to win market isn't as close as some would have suspect with Kameda a very clear favourite priced at 4/11 whilst McDonnell, the defending champion being priced at 5/2 with the draw available at 22/1. The odds suggest the bookies are expecting a clear win for Kameda which is something that we predicted in out preview of the bout.
We've got to admit we're a lot more interested in the “Method of victory” market which is probably where people will find some value. Kameda by decision is seen as the most likely outcome, priced at around 6/5 whilst Kameda by stoppage is around 5/2. McDonnell by decision is priced at a wide 9/2 whilst the Englishman to record a stoppage can be found at a huge 9/1. That does however show how little belief there is in McDonnell's power.
The “over-under” has been set at 9.5 rounds with the over priced at 2/5 whilst the over can be found at 12/5 if you shop around. It's clear that the bookies aren't favouring the stoppage though Kameda has been very confident in regards to scoring one.
At the moment there is also a “To be knocked down” market with McDonnell to be dropped being priced at 15/8 whilst Tomoki being dropped is priced at 5/1.
