Gamble? 95% of the market...on Hatton
A William Hill Internet client has staked £20,000 on Ricky Hatton to beat Paulie Malignaggi at 2/5, as punters continue to pour cash on yet another Ricky Victory.
"The biggest bet we have taken for Malignaggi so far is just £100 -we've had more for the draw than for him, and a massive 95% of all the money bet has been for a Ricky win" said Hill's spokesman Graham Sharpe...
"Mind you, the pattern was much the same in the days before the Mayweather fight - and look what happened there"
With £20,000 going on Hatton in one fell-swoop and £7500 in another... What Credit Crunch? Las Vegas, which has reportedly been hit by the global economic conditions will feel the money coming back into the city this weekend as Hatton's army of fans will return to the "scene of the crime"
William Hill offer betting odds on all the major boxing events including this Saturday's clash between Ricky Hatton and Paulie Malignaggi with live odds throughout the fight.
