In the early hours of Sunday morning we have a long-awaited middleweight rematch between these two world class fighters. Last September, the original bout between Gennady Golovkin and Canelo Alvarez ended in a controversial draw and both men will be determined to put the result beyond doubt this time.
Originally scheduled for May, this rematch was delayed for four months but the interest has never dulled. That excitement extends to the betting markets where this new customer offer from 888Sport* could add a profitable outcome to the evening.
*New customers only. £10 minimum deposit using promo code BOXING. Qualifying bet must be placed at the normal odds Min bet £5, max bet £5. Extra winnings paid in FREE BETS and added within 72 hrs of qualifying bet settlement. Free bet stakes not included in bet returns. Free bets expire 7 days after credit.
Back Either / Or
Under the terms of this offer, players can either back Gennady Golovkin and get enhanced odds of 7/1 or, they can choose to get behind Canelo Alvarez and take that up a little further to 11/1. Whichever you go for, those are strong prices when compared to the numbers available in the open markets.
Currently, Golovkin is the clear favourite at best industry odds of 4/6 with Betway while Alvarez is the outsider at a top price of 6/4 with William Hill and BetBright. With those figures in mind, here’s what you need to do if you want to take up this enhanced offer.
888 Sign Up
The promo is specifically for new customers to 888Sport and if you don’t already hold an account here you can head over via the link to complete a very simple sign up. Only very basic information is required and after sending the forms over a secure server, you will be welcomed on board in just a few minutes.
Now it’s time to make an opening deposit so when you arrive at the cashier, you must add funds at £10.00 or more. We suggest using a debit or credit card as eWallets are specifically excluded and as a final point to note, please remember to type in the Promotional Code BOXING when asked to do so.
With those early preliminaries done, it’s time to move on to the interesting bit.
Place Your Bets
Your deposit should clear straight away and you can then choose which fighter to back. Stake the fixed sum of £5.00 on either Gennady Golovkin or Canelo Alvarez to win it and then wait for the fight to come to its conclusion. It goes off in Nevada at 4.00am, UK time, and if you’ve called correctly at the end of it, payment will work as follows.
Profits are paid out in two parts with an initial return coming back to you as cash, based on the relevant 888Sport win price in the open markets. The balance, up to the applicable price boost, will then land in your account as a series of free bet tokens within 72 hours.
Those tokens will usually come back much sooner and do look out for them as they must be used within 7 days before they expire.
Take Your Pick
You can check all of the terms and conditions on the 888Sport offers page if you prefer but we have given you the main points of what is a simple deal. The hardest part may lie in picking a winner in this contest between two fighters with superb career records.
Gennady Golovkin is the favourite and many believe he was the rightful winner of the first match a year ago but it’s a tight market and there may well be some value in the outsider Canelo Alvarez.
It’s over to you but if you do make a correct call, those generous enhanced odds are going to be tough to beat for Canelo v GGG 2.
