Muhammad Ali Trophy is the ultimate glory in the World Boxing Super Series or WBSS. In season two, there will be three weight classes including the Super Lightweight which Josh Taylor is participating. This boxing series will last from September 2018 to May 2019.
According to online sportsbook news in UK, the Super Lightweight matches were drawn in Moscow on July 22, 2018. We have the early betting odds for Josh Taylor to win Super Lightweight division among seven other fighters.
What Are the Odds for Josh Taylor to Win Super Lightweight Division?
You may be surprised to hear that Josh Taylor is not the bookies’ favourite in WBSS 2. The best online betting sites in the United Kingdom predict 3.750 odds for Josh Taylor to win Super Lightweight division. He has the second best winning chance, but how is that possible?
After all, Josh is the current WBC Super Lightweight Champion by beating Viktor Postol in June 2018. This victory became his 13th undefeated streak. And yet, Josh still has the least experience when compared to the rest of the fighters. This is partly why the early odds suggest that there is a better boxer.
Number One Seed: Regis Prograis
The boxer who looms above Josh Taylor is Regis Prograis, number one seed in the Super Lightweight division of WBSS 2. In addition to this, Regis is also the Interim WBC World Champion.
The best way to highlight Regis’ strengths is by borrowing his spoken words. Regis said “My biggest asset is my hunger to be the best. I have a chip on my shoulder and I want to prove to everybody I am the best at 140 lbs.”
According to internet gambling sites in UK, Regis’ winning odds at 2.500 are significantly lower than Josh’s. We can conclude that Regis’ presence lessens the chance for Josh Taylor to win Super Lightweight division.
Bet on WBSS 2 Super Lighweight
We now know that Regis Prograis (2.500) has the best early odds in the WBSS 2. Even though Josh Taylor (3.750) does not have the lowest odds, the draw suggests that he could easily advance to the finals. In Josh’s path, the undefeated Ryan Martin (13.000), Ivan Baranchyk (5.0) or Anthony Yigit (34.000) will be crushed.
