Boxing betting fans learned that on December 7, Darren Barker will make his first IBF middleweight title defence when he takes on Felix Sturm in Germany, and they can’t wait to see the show.
Pay per head sportsbooks saw that In August, Barker won the belt with a points win over Daniel Geale with very good boxing odds, and the fighter agreed to go to Stuttgart, Sturm’s home patch, to defend his title.
Sturm was notoriously tough to defeat on his own territory as he held Martin Murray to a draw and claimed a controversial points victory over Matthew Macklin when they went to Germany, and boxing betting fans remember very well when this took place.
However, pay per head sportsbooks learned that if Barker is defeated, promoter Eddie Hearn added the option to have an immediate rematch in London. Now price per her head services and boxing betting fans all over the world can’t wait to see what will happen.
“We have been in discussions with Felix Sturm’s team since the Daniel Geale fight, and with purse bids approaching they made their intentions quite clear,” said Hearn.
“Felix is the fight we want both financially and from a legacy perspective and once we were able to introduce our necessary demands, which included a potential second fight in the UK and neutral officials, then this was an opportunity Darren could not turn down.
“Even though defeat would lead to an immediate rematch in London, we are all confident that Darren will defend his title in style on December 7 in Germany.”
And boxing betting fans would really like to see if the fighter will indeed keep his title.
