Irish based bookmakers Paddy Power have recently issues their odds on the upcoming WBC Bantamweight title fight between defending champion Shinsuke Yamanaka (20-0-2, 15) and Belgian challenger Stephane Jamoye (25-4,15).
The to win market has Yamanaka as a the clear, and unbackable, favourite priced at 1/25. Jamoye is a 10/1 underdog whilst the draw is 30/1. Unless you fancy the upset these odds are pretty hard to stomach, even our very own Takahiro won't be betting on anything here.
Method of victory:
Where Takahiro has placed his money is on the method of victory market backing Yamanaka to score a TKO/KO or DQ win. The odds for this are 4/11.
If you fancy Yamanaka for the decision the odds are 5/2 whilst the Belgian to win by stoppage is 16/1 and Jamoye by decision is priced at a massive 22/1!
Will the fight go the distance:
With Yamanaka priced at 4/11 to score a stoppage it'll come as no surprise to learn that there is little value in the "to go the distance" market. The odds on the bout not going the distance are 3/10 whilst the bout going the scheduled 12 rounds is 11/5.
To be knocked down:
This market isn't one that we expected to see though it has Yamanaka 10/1 to be knocked down at any time whilst Jamoye is 3/10.
There are 3 separate types of market for particular round bets here. There are individual round markets and 2 group round markets.
One of those groupings is every 3 rounds (round 1,2,3 for example) whilst the other is split into 6 rounds (rounds 1-6 and 7-12) for both men. Takahiro has backed Yamanaka in rounds 1-6, priced at 13/8, declaring "God of Left will do a faster job than Santa Cruz", Leo Santa Cruz stopped Jamoye in 6 rounds.
How long will the fight last:
This market allows you to bet in groups of 3 rounds on the bout to finish. This means you can effectively back both men to score stoppages in any 3 round window.
