It won’t prove to be the biggest fight of 2019 but for the two men involved, Saturday’s bout at the O2 is absolutely crucial. It’s been described as ‘Do or Die’ and with Chris Eubank Jr and James Degale at advanced stages of their careers, retirement could be the eventual outcome for the loser.
Pundits may therefore be looking at a cagey fight and that’s why this new customer offer from Bookee might appeal. Enhanced odds of 33/1 are on the table if this bout were to go the distance so let’s start this review by looking at the open market comparisons.

Betting and Payments
Expect your funds to clear straight away and when that happens, you can stake the fixed sum of £1.00 on this opening bet. Back the Fight to go the Distance when Chris Eubank Jr fights James Degale in London on Saturday February 23, 2019. It’s all set to start at 10pm UK time and if, at the end of the night, that bet has landed, payment will come back to you in two parts as follows:
In the event of a winning bet, an initial sum will be on its way to you as a cash payment and this will be based on Bookee’s equivalent price in the standard markets. As we’ve seen, that currently stands at 4/6 and it will appear shortly after the fight comes to its conclusion.
The balance, up to that price boosted sum of 33/1, will then follow on as a series of free bet tokens within 24 hours.
That concludes the significant points of this offer but if you prefer, you are free to check all terms and conditions, including those relating to free bet tokens, on the Bookee promos page.
What are the Chances?
The stats show that Chris Eubank Jr has won 27 of his 29 pro fights and 21 of those victories have come via knockout. For James Degale, there have been 25 wins with 15 by KO or TKO. Degale therefore has more fights going the distance but the trends look OK if not certain.
We know it’s a gamble but at 33/1, the enhanced odds recognise that and if they do come in, this could be the best possible time to sign up with Bookee.
