Market Update – Unibet sees strong ‘Big Fight’ wagering as Joshua seeks to become the headline act of boxing

first_img StumbleUpon Bookmaker Unibet has informed SBC, that it is recording strong trading for April 29’s Heavyweight World Championship boxing clash between Anthony Joshua vs. Wladimir Klitschko.Issuing a trading update, Anthony Cousins’ Head of Sportsbook for Unibet & Kindred Group details that thus far 72% of the wagers have been placed on Joshua, 2% Draw and 26% on Klitschko.However, Cousins details that in this ’50-50’ bout, Unibet has seen a significant amount of wagers placed on a Klitschko points victory. Joshua, who holds a record of 18 fights / 18 Knockouts leads the market  for a ‘KO victory’.At present, Unibet predicts that Joshua vs Klitschko, will comfortably break the British wagering record for a boxing match.However, the bookmaker’s record boxing turnover remains 2015’s Mayweather v Pacquiao fight which Unibet states traded 8-times more turnover than the 2nd and 3rd biggest fights the bookmaker has recorded, between Wladmir Klitschko vs Tyson Fury and Wldmir Klitschko vs David Haye.Anthony Cousins, UnibetUnibet notes that a victory for Joshua, could turn the Watford heavyweight into a global box office draw. Joshua is already 7/2 to be crowned Sports Personality of the Year 2017 which the bookmaker details is a display of how much the athlete’s stature has grown in a short space of time.Unibet trading team commented on the market: “We opened with 1.44 on Joshua and have not had to adjust the prices yet in what appears to be a very solid market. You can make arguments for both fighters and the live market on the night is the one where we expect most volatility.”“There are question marks over both fighters – Klitschko is now 41 and not fought since his loss in 2015 but has years of experience on his side. 3 of his last 5 fights went the distance and that is not new territory for him.”” The youth, strength and agility of Joshua are not in dispute, but he has only fought in 5 sanctioned 12 round fights and 3 of them were ended before round 3. Joshua has never gone to points, or further then round 7 – it will be interesting to see if Klitschko can draw him into a long battle into the unknown.” Share Share Unibet backs #GoRacingGreen as lead racing charity  July 28, 2020 Kindred: Spelinspektionen has failed in its management of Swedish marketplace June 11, 2020 Related Articles Kindred marks fastest route to ‘normal trading’ as it delivers H1 growth July 24, 2020 Submitlast_img read more

Have a penchant for Swedish football? Or perhaps you just like delving into the history of World Cup’s gone by. Join Daniel Larsson, CCO at Enteractive, who brings a very distinct theme to today’s proceedings.Favourite World CupGoalThomas Brolin (Sweden v Romania, 1994). It’s one of the most famous free kicks in World Cup history, not only for the trickery but also for the emphatic finish. Almost everyone in the stadium expected Stefan Schwarz to take a direct shot at goal, except Tomas Brolin. He was brilliantly found in space, catching the Romanian defence off-guard and finishing well from a tight angle. A marvellous goal! GameSweden v Romania, 1994. This game had everything and was a real roller-coaster ride for every Sweden fan. Brolin’s wonderful strike, as mentioned above, appeared to be the winner but Romania pegged us back in the dying minutes. It looked all over for us when the Romanians took the lead in extra time, but thankfully Kennet Andersson was at hand to strike late on to send the game to penalties. The shootout was excruciating to watch, especially being a youngster at the time. However, the sheer joy of scoring that decisive penalty will never be forgotten.PlayerTomas Brolin. An all-time Swedish great and my favourite player. He was fantastic on the ball and certainly had an eye for goal, scoring plenty of them during his international career. He’s also the only Swedish player in my lifetime to make the World Cup all-star team – not even Zlatan Ibrahimovíc has achieved that feat!TeamSweden, 1994. It has to be the 1994 team, especially as we’ve struggled in recent years to make any sort of an impact at the World Cup. Despite being unfancied at the start of the tournament, we managed to progress out of a tough group and narrowly lost to Brazil at the semi-final stage. The ‘94 side played some great football and will long be remembered as one of our nation’s best teams.KitSweden, 1994. Given that all my previous answers have been associated with Sweden at the 1994 World Cup, it comes as no surprise to learn that I’ve opted for the kit the Swedes played in that tournament! The classic Adidas shirt has become a retro favourite.__________________________________________________First World Cup memory17 June – 17 July 1994 (World Cup, USA). It was the summer of 1994 when the tournament was held across the United States. Sweden had gone through what felt like the hottest summer I would ever experience. Due to the tournament being held in the US, I remember fighting my 6-year old’s fatigue to support Sweden during the early hours of the morning as they progressed to eventually claim third spot, our best performance at the World Cup in recent times.The World Cup’s Finest is to be a regular feature during the Russia World Cup, profiling a different individual each week day, if you would like to be involved please email craig@sbcgaming.com.last_img read more
