David Haye WBA Heavyweight Champion
Our shrewd betting friends at Fighting Tips, don’t often get it wrong when it comes to picking a winner.
.
In the heavyweight clash between British fighters David Haye and Audley Harrison, they are predicting a few bob on Haye for the knockout and to retain his title, is where the smart money’s at.
.
Harrison finally gets his chance to fight for a world heavyweight title at the MEN Arena on Saturday night and betting experts www.fightingtips.co.uk guide you through the best bets of the evening.
.
Anyone who sat through Wednesday’s final press conference would have seen a serious shift in David Haye’s character with the champ firstly laughing Audley out of town, only to become a more focused, less playful man as that first bell draws ever closer. Despite the gags and digs, Haye knows there are no easy nights at this level and to underestimate his opponent would be an unforgivable mistake.

.

Any European champion deserves a shot at the world title and, like it or not, Audley Harrison won the European crown in his last outing so he certainly merits a shot at David’s crown. He will enter the ring bigger and stronger than Haye on the night, boasts a long, well schooled jab and, despite doing his best to hide it all these years, has dynamite power in his left hand. Audley’s head may be in the clouds but he believes in what he says and in his ability. Punters who have signed up to his rejuvenated fan club can have 5/1 (Coral) about a shock result.

There is little doubt that Haye could be knocked out if he stands still and trades but he is an intelligent fighter and I don’t see him allowing Audley much success. There is a bit of genuine needle between the pair but I see David staying on his toes during the opening exchanges, wearing Harrison down before putting him to bed in the middle rounds with looping, heavy handed shots over the top of a terrified Harrison’s messy guard. This one going over 4.5 rounds seems a gift at 4/7 (Boylesports) whilst for there to be 2 or more knockdowns during the fight is available at 10/11 (Coral).

Back the champ to keep hold of his belt via a knockout win at 2/5 (Unibet) or Haye by TKO at 6/5 (Sportingbet) on the exact method of victory market.

George Groves with his Promoter David Haye
The highlight of a competitive undercard sees George Groves face Scotland’s Kenny Anderson.
.
Groves was due to fight at the York Hall two weeks ago but his opponent was forced to pull out after failing a medical so the Englishman will still be in great shape for this one and will be looking to take his frustration out on Anderson in front of the watching world. Groves is fast becoming the real deal, he has proven both home and away he possesses the skills needed to develop into a world class fighter and under the guidance of Hayemaker promotions, will get plenty of chances to show what he can do before a big audience.
.
A Groves v De Gale meeting seems to be on the horizon but Kenny Anderson could end that dream with a shock victory here, although bookmakers don’t think so, making the Scot as big as 4/1 (bet365). Anderson is undefeated from 12 outings though and should provide Groves’ biggest test to date.
I don’t see the Commonwealth title changing hands but it certainly won’t be the walkover many odds compilers are predicting. Back over 7.5 rounds at 5/6 (Stan James) or Groves on points at 3/1 (Skybet).
