It's for that reason that we have priced him as the 1/2 favourite to win the bout and 11/8 to stop the youngster, while Khan isn't without a chance at 6/4 - 9/2 to win by KO/TKO

Given Khan's glass-jaw and Barrera's age it seems unlikely the fight will go the distance and as such we have priced a Barrera points win at 11/4 and Khan on points at 3/1.



Report from William Hill. Obviously not all the experts think Barrera is too light and too far past his best (as I originally thought).

Dont qoute odds if they arent available. Given it the "we". If your with William Hill you will know they put up 6/4 for only a couple of hours before it disapeared

The odds have moved obviously, with people backing Khan. Will Hill aren't going to have a one-sided book and keep taking bets at 6/4.

The report shows that William Hill think Barrera will win, that's why I included it. The other reviews of the fight I'd read thought Khan would be too strong. The odds will obviously change with market movements.

Using OddsChecker now Khan is favourite, from evens (William Hill) to 8/13.

Yeah I was backing you up sunshine, big bollocks there was on his soapbox calling your William Hill Report bullshit, whereas you'd simply copied & pasted it word for word, which is what my link demonstrated

I want Barrera to win but I think age and size is a big obstacle for him to overcome here and I think Khan will win by late stoppage or UD.

But prime Barrera completely destroys Khan of course.

Barrera was in his prime at 122/126, way too small

Precisely. You gave reasons why you made Barerra 1/2 favourite. But that wasnt the case the reason William Hill made Barerra the 1/2 favourite was because the odds compiler totally arsed it up and they had to correct it by bringing it into line with the other compilers odds.

Betting odds don't actually reflect reality though, do they? The best indicator is waiting till the last minute and seeing where the big bets land. There is no way that Khan could be considered a clear favourite in this fight

the only way khan would be fav in this fight would be in a ****stanni betting shop.

MAB has to be fav,i can't beleive people think khan would be favourite.

if pacman can move up and beat DLH,MAB can move up and beat a khan in my book.

i know MAB is more past it,but khan is by no means DLH,weight drained like he was or not

I think Kahn will end up favourite (or damn close) for this fight, esp. with British based bookies.

and rightly so, he has size, youth, speed on his size.....for me, as good as he was, it would be a small upset if MAB were to win.
