Khan vs Brook Betting Odds & Specials, TV Channel & UK Start Time | Saturday 19th February
Kell Brook has been installed as the slight favourite in the betting as he prepares to do battle with Amir Khan at the AO Manchester Arena.
A long-simmering feud will finally come to the boil on Saturday night, and it was no surprise to see the pair of bitter rivals in bullish form at Thursday’s press conference.
Both men have vowed to claim the spoils in British boxing’s longest standing grudge match which takes top billing on Sky Sports Box Office.
Kell Brook: 148.5lbs
Amir Khan: 147.5lbs
BoyleSports are TOP PRICE on Round Betting for the bout! See below.
Khan claimed this week he feels better now at the age of 35 than he did at 25, but the latest odds mean the former world champion is set to start 5/4 underdog at the bell, while ‘The Special One’ in in the opposite corner, another former world champion, is 4/6 favourite.
Both fighters may be past their best and this is a bout that many craved at a much earlier stage in their careers, but the imagination has been well-and-truly captured with sports stars ranging from Wayne Rooney to Khabib Nurmagomedov weighing in this week with predictions of a very close contest.
The fact that a draw has been backed down to 20/1 from 22/1 over the past 48 hours suggests plenty of punters are on the same page, but if the fight is to be settled before the distance, a Brook victory by KO is rated most likely at 5/4.
Twenty-seven of the Sheffield native’s 39 wins have come by way of KO and the round betting has singled out the middle third of the fight (rounds 5-8) as the most likely time to see a stoppage.
It’s been two and a half years since Khan stepped into the ring and most who are backing the Bolton star to be crowned the winner are expecting him to require the judges’ scorecards.
Despite being underdog, Khan actually turns into the favourite at 3/1 to Brook’s 4/1 should the fight go the distance, while anyone expecting an explosive start can snap up 7/1 about either fighter hitting the canvas in round 1, which features in a host of specials now live on BoyleSports.com.
