What's in store for 2009?

2009 should provide with some fantastic clashes with a wealth of betting opportunities and a number of British fighters starting to look the real deal.

Amir Khan is of course being tested to the limit against Marco Antonio Barrera but David Haye has had his intended plans scuppered forcing him to go down another route.

Below is what our boxing expert Sam Foulkes thinks about Haye's prospects for 2009 along with a host of other contenders.

David Haye

"Some bad news for David Haye this week as prospective opponent Vitali Klitschko has announced that he will now fight Juan Carlos Gomez instead.

Haye will now target a match with Wladimir Klitschko instead; I make Haye 9/2 to beat Wladimir (1/8) should they fight.

Wladimir in my opinion is a much tougher fight for Haye, even though Vitali is a great fighter one thing that Haye had going for him was that Vitali would have stood toe to toe and had a fight with him, giving David the chance of landing a knockout punch.

Wladimir on the other hand is so safety first, he will box to his own strengths, I can only see him standing behind his accurate jab and not allowing Haye into the fight, which is what he seems to do with all of his opponents"

Other contenders in 2009

"Better news in 2009 for some other British hopefuls such as Michael Jennings who will fight Miguel Cotto for the WBO Welterweight Title in Madison Square Garden next month.

We also have crowd favourite Jamie Moore in action against Michele Piccirillo for the European Title in March.

As well as a stacked undercard for the Khan - Barrera bout featuring Enzo Maccarinelli and Nicky Cook both against undefeated fighters (Banks and Martinez).

We have an outstanding domestic card lined up for Liverpool in late March featuring Dodson v Magee and Ryan Rhodes v Anthony Small."

With William Hill you won't miss any opportunity that comes around as we prepare for what looks to a cracking year of boxing.
