We’re only a few days removed from the controversial fight, and already fans are asking how to bet on the Canelo vs. GGG rematch.
The story of bad judge’s decisions in boxing continues. Whether it was corruption or simply negligence, the three ringside judges scoring the recent fight between Saul “Canelo” Alvarez and Gennady Golovkin robbed the fans once again.
It was a competitive fight between both fighters, however nearly every fan in attendance and those at home felt Golovkin had clearly won the majority of the rounds after the last bell. Media and analysts felt the same, yet the scorecards were read and the fight was declared a split draw.
There’s no doubt that a few boxing betting fans made some cash wagering on a draw with one of the many online sportsbooks in the UK including BetVictor Sportsbook but the majority of punters were left disappointed as the rightful winner was not declared. So how long before you can bet on the Canelo vs. GGG rematch?
Canelo vs. GGG rematch odds
The one silver lining to this whole debacle is that fans will now get to see the rematch between these two fighters. A date has not yet been set, and the odds not yet established, but after their first fight it seems likely that GGG will enter as the favorite. So who’s the safer option to bet on the Canelo vs. GGG rematch?
Golovkin controlled the ring for the majority of the fight and seemed the land the much harder shots. In the first fight, he was listed as only a slight 1.63 favorite, but you can expect his odds to reach somewhere in the 1/4 range for round two. Canelo will likely be listed as the significant underdog, possibly with odds of 3/1 to make UK gambling news with the victory.
