what a bunch of clowns. I was going to bet on SBW purely on the basis that these cross sport 'celebrity' fights are always dodgy in some way, but I thought maybe this one wouldn't be and Botha would clean him out so I didn't bother.

It's more the vibes that Frampton and his team are giving, their going to box for a bit and pick it up late, which to me would see that as a very good bet

Had Botha ko as well with them, they marked me down as a loser.

Did you ask them about it? They said they're looking into it and will contact me later. Seriously mate, hassle them if you haven't done so already.

I had something similar a few months ago when Benitez was appointed as Chelsea manager. I put money on him the day before it was announced and my bet still hadn't been settled a few hours after the announcement. I asked them why it hadn't been settled and they told me it would only be settled once a permanent manager had been announced. Benitez had been appointed as "Interim" Manager. I asked them stuff like "what happens if no more announcements are made and Benitez is still manager a year later". They didn't seem to have any answers but they offered to cancel my bet, which i accepted. I then found out the next day that the bet had been settled as a winner, but by this stage i had obviously cancelled my bet. So i then had to get on at them again, saying that i wouldn't have cancelled the bet if i knew it was going to be settled as a winner etc. So they ended up paying me as a "Gesture of Goodwill" and i eventually got my money. But there is no way they would have given me it without me hassling them.

I had a similar thing with Quigg/Munroe draw in the first fight - I actually backed the draw at two different books and one paid and one argued the point but paid in the end, so that worked out for me. This one was only a tenner at 9/2 but I have registered my concern so will see what they do.

Haven't had an email from them yet but i've just logged into my account and my balance reads: "Promo cash: 50.00".

My initial bet was 50, however, i also put my 25 free bet on it as well. I'm guessing i won't get my 25 until i place another bet but i might ask just in case.

Has anyone had any joy getting outright bets on Botha voided? I know Betvictor have voided both MOV and outright bets but WH are so far refusing to void my outright bet.

I have always understood that outright bets stand even if the distance is changed, however in this circumstance where it was possibly/probably changed to affect the result you would like to think they would make a gesture of goodwill and give you your money back. You might want to cut and past a couple of the articles calling the fight fixed and mail to them with your repeated request. They are a big firm and point out that its not good to be associated with a fixed fight.

given up on gettin my money back on sbw and botha...asshole bookies

bets for tonight Frampton by unanimous decision...dont think frampton is a really heavy hitter and while kiko is a scary lil fuker i think frampton should be able to comfortably outbox him... kiko is well aware of this hence why he is trying to bait frampton into a firefight with him.

gonna wait til the odds are on skybet and bet on an early ko in the proksa fight.

bit wary about betting on a selby unanimous decision cos of the fight being in ireland....not saying irish judges are bent but i still remember the scoring in Mccloskey v Prescott
