Nine out of every 10 bets placed with Betway are in favor of Alexander Povetkin stripping Anthony Joshua of his three world titles at Wembley on Saturday night.

Just 10% of punters are lumping on WBA, WBO and IBF world heavyweight champion Joshua at his skinny odds of 1/14, and they’ve drifted from a previous mark of 1/20, while Povetkin has been cut to 15/2 from 8/1.

Betway’s Alan Alger said: “We’re holding an industry-best price of 15/2 on Alexander Povetkin at the moment, but the weight of bets are piling up in the Russian’s corner and he looks likely to go off shorter when the opening bell sounds.

“Around 90% of all bets on Saturday night’s fight are for Povetkin while Anthony Joshua is an unwanted betting proposition and has lengthened to 1/14 – admittedly still short – from 1/20.”

Looking at further fractions, Tyson Fury will travel to America for his clash with Deontay Wilder on 1st December as the 6/4 underdog with Betway.

The leading online bookmaker favors Bronze Bomber Wilder at 10/11 to successfully defend his WBC strap, while it’s 25/1 for the draw.

Betway’s Alan Alger said: “Though Tyson Fury deserves respect for being unbeaten in 27 fights and the man who managed to outbox Wladimir Klitschko. He’s still on the comeback trail after a lengthy spell sat ringside and Deontay Wilder is our marginal favorite at 10/11.

“The Bronze Bomber is in peak form and looks ready for a true test. Fury can be awkward and has every chance of pulling it off at 6/4. But, particularly with the fight being in America, Wilder heads into this as the favorite.”
