Dillian Whyte has retained his strong odds-on favourite tag for the Alexander Povetkin rematch, despite being knocked out cold by the Russian on Saturday.
Bookies have been quick to price up the rematch, with Whyte being awarded odds as short as 1/4 to win via any method.
Sky Bet have been slightly more pessimistic of the Body Snatcher’s chances, pricing the Englishman as an 8/15 shot.
On the other side of the ring, victorious Povetkin is a tasty 2/1 underdog when they square off once again.
In the unlikely event this fight goes to the judges’ scorecard, it’s a whopping 22/1 that the bout ends in a draw.
However, Sky Bet again have bucked the trend and are pricing Whyte up as an 11/8 shot for the rematch.
When it comes to looking at the percentage of bets from punters, Whyte just edges the pie chart with 52% of all bets.
His Russian counterpart has accrued just 46% of the early betting on the next fight, with the remaining 2% backing the draw.
Oddschecker spokesperson Callum Wilson: “Alexander Povetkin sent out a brutal reminder on Saturday just how unforgiving heavyweight boxing is.
“Dillian Whyte was controlling their bout with relative ease, scoring two knockdowns in the process, before the experienced Russian’s brutal uppercut put a temporary end to the Londoner’s ambitions of a world title shot at Tyson Fury.
“It’s unsurprising that Whyte is favourite for the potential rematch, but Povetkin, who has only lost in his long career to Wladimir Klitschko and Anthony Joshua, will fully back himself to KO the Body Snatcher once again.”
