The British boxing season is back with a bang and what a way to welcome the return as we go into the biggest show of the year. Vasyl Lomachenko arrives in the UK where he’ll take on Luke Campbell at the O2 Arena in London and this is a fight that has fans excited. Here are our top Lomachenko v Campbell betting tips.
A Closer Look
Lomachenko is the biggest name in the sport to come to Britain since Gennady Golovkin’s destruction of Kell Brook at this very venue a few years ago. The star will ensure a sell-out audience will be in attendance and millions more will be viewing the action live on Sky Sports Box Office.
Hi-Tech is widely recognised as the number one pound for pound fighter on the planet and there’s no underestimating the size of the task that awaits Campbell on fight night. The Ukrainian defends his WBA and WBO world lightweight titles and also has the chance to add the vacant WBC strap to his current haul. He was last seen stopping another Brit in Anthony Crolla in Los Angeles earlier this year and it’s believed Luke will face a similar fate when in with the great man.
A Quick Finish
The betting sees no reason to take on Campbell and traders have been falling over themselves to support the away win. Those looking to back Lomachenko will have to make do with the 1/14 offered by Ladbrokes. A knockout win is 2/5 with the same firm but we’re pushing our luck a bit further. Lomachenko to win the fight between rounds 7-12 is 8/5 when getting your bets on at Unibet. That looks the value play of the evening and it should help cover the pay-per-view costs involved in catching a glimpse of Loma.
