Around 2 weeks ago we were made aware that Irish bookies Paddy Power were taking bets on the upcoming WBC Bantamweight title fight between hard hitting champion Shinsuke Yamanaka (21-0-2, 16) and mandatory challenger Suriyan Sor Rungvisai (37-5-1, 16).
When the fight was first opened on the bookies the odds were frankly ridiculous with Yamanaka priced at 1/100. Thankfully however we have seen a more realistic shift in the odds with Bet365 pricing Yamanaka up at 1/33. Sadly Paddy Power still have Yamanaka at a completely unbackable price of 1/80. Thankfully Paddy Power do have better odds on Suriyan at 16/1 whilst Bet365 have the Thai at 12/1.
As for the draw, that has been priced at 35/1 with Paddy Power.
