Boxing: Money For De Mori To Beat Haye
Bookmakers William Hill are taking more bets on Mark de Mori than David Haye, ahead of The Hayemaker’s comeback fight on Saturday.
65% of all bets are on Mark de Mori to win the fight, while the most popular bet is for de Mori to win by knockout in Round 1 at odds of 80/1!
But the bookies disagree, making David Haye the overwhelming 1/25 favourite to be victorious (staking £25 on Haye would return just £26 if he wins).
“Punters think David Haye is over the hill and that he’s past his prime,” said William Hill spokesman Jon Ivan-Duke, “but we think he’s still got more than enough skill to defeat de Mori.”
