Boxing Betting: Eddie Hearn believes that Anthony Joshua could fight for British title
By Andrew Scott Thursday, 29 August 2013 07:50
Boxing betting fans and pay per head sportsbooks learned that the Matchroom promoter hopes to get 10 fights into Joshua in his first 12 months as a professional, getting underway on October 5 at the O2 Arena.
And the UK’s heavyweight division has such scarcity of talent that Hearn – famous for his great talent and boxing odds – believes that a title shot will not take long to arrive.
“It’s such a weak division. Obviously Haye v Fury is the fight everyone is waiting for now and personally I think the winner of that will fight Wladimir next,” Hearn told Sky Sports.
And boxing betting fans know very well how important it for the division to strengthen.
“There just aren’t the opponents out there. How they are filling out arenas for these fights I don’t know, they put on great shows but in time the winner of Haye vs Fury makes sense.
“Domestically you’ve got those two, Derrick Chisora is still battling away, and David Price I feel will be back. He’s still British and Commonwealth champion, still got a lot to fight for.
“Beneath that you’ve got Anthony Joshua. He looks the real deal and now he’s got to get in there and show it. He’s got a lot of learning to do and that starts on October 5 at the O2.
Price per head sportsbooks believe that Joshua has exactly what is needed for his division, and can’t wait to see the fighter shine in the ring with great boxing odds.
“I think Britain should be excited about this young man’s future. He’s got all the attributes of a fantastic heavyweight.
“I hope we’ll get into double figures in the first year but these are big guys landing heavy shots and injuries do come into play. But after 10 fights we’ll be looking for a British title.
