Bitcoin sportsbook is giving its Joshua vs Klitschko Bitcoin odds for the Saturday fight. According to Bitcoin sportsbook odds, Joshua is currently the favored boxer for this match.
Joshua displays great athleticism
Sportsbet.io sets Joshua to be the favored fighter here with odds of 1.39. Betrally is offering a market of Joshua winning by KO, TKO or disqualification with 1.71 odds. These odds come from acknowledging the impressive strength and track record of the 27-year old boxer from London.
Anthony Joshua or AJ began his boxing career at the age of 18. The earliest highlight of his career was his winning the senior ABA Championship in 2010 and 2011. He even said no to a £50,000 offer to be a pro boxer in 2010 just so he can compete again in the ABA Championship the following year.
When AJ hits the Pro career line, he is an unstoppable freight train. His record is a total of 18 fights and he won all 18 of these by KO. One of the highlights of his pro career is his title match against the IBF Heavyweight Champion Charles Martin. AJ took home the title when Martin could not stand up after the 10 count in the second round.
AJ’s fight against Klitschko was possible due to Joshua’s win against his match with Molina. The WBA states that the organization will sanction a bout between Joshua and Klitschko if Joshua can retain his belt against Molina. When Hearn made the announcement back in January, the match sold more than 90,000 tickets. This has set a new box office record.
Wladimir Klitschko background
Wladimir Klitschko or Dr. Steelhammer has odds of 2.79 through Sportsbet.io. Betrally offers odds of 4.25 for the doctor to win by KO, TKO or disqualification. For these two sportsbooks, the doctor’s physical power and speed are the determining factors for his odds.
What Klitschko lacks in punch power and food speed though, he makes up for it with his experience. The doctor has his basics down where he can throw a sharp punch and a one-two combination that finishes with a devastating left hook. Klitschko has the know-how to disarm his opponent in the ring as he keeps a safe distance.
Klitschko was also a freight train at the start of his pro career. He was unstoppable for more than 20 matches during the 90s. His only lost was with Ross Purity back in 1998.
The match this Saturday will be about power vs experience. Will Joshua over power the 41-year-old Klitschko or will the Doctor find a way to disarm AJs strengths during the match? All will be answered on the 29th but not one Bitcoin sportsbook points predicts a win for Klitschko.
