We’re building up to one of the biggest sporting events of 2018 so far and one of the highlights of the year for boxing fans. The heavyweight title showdown between Anthony Joshua and Joseph Parker goes off in Cardiff on Saturday with no fewer than four world belts on the line.
We’re expecting a busy few days in terms of bookmakers’ offers and promotions for this one and the first of these has now dropped in. Over at Ladbrokes, new customers can claim enhanced odds of 25/1 if Joshua wins the bout by knockout and that’s proving to be a very popular bet.
In the straight win market, current figures show AJ as the favourite to win the fight by any method and that comes in at 1/8 with most bookies including bet365 and Sun Bets. Victory for Parker is available at a top price of 63/10 with MarathonBet while the draw is at 35/1 with BetBright.
Meanwhile, the equivalent bet to this promotion is for Joshua to win by knockout and that can be claimed in the standard markets at 6/19 with MarathonBet. Boosted odds of 25/1 are therefore worth considering and here’s how you could take things further.
This offer is exclusively for new customers to Ladbrokes so the first step is to set up that account. You can cross from here to the registration page for a fast and simple process that should take up no more than around two minutes of your time.
The important point to remember, as you input some personal information, is to type in the Promo Code FIGHT when asked to do so. After that, it’s time to make an opening deposit that covers the bet.
At the cashier’s page, be sure to deposit at least £5.00 which is the minimum set by this promotion and use a debit or credit card to do so as eWallets are excluded from the offer. That should clear immediately and you can then move on to the important part.
Betting and Payment
With money available, stake the fixed sum of £1.00 on this special bet of Anthony Joshua to beat Joseph Parker by knockout when the two fighters meet in Cardiff on March 31, 2018. The action is scheduled to start at 10pm UK time and if you’re happy to add Pay Per View then you can watch it live via Sky Sports.
Whether you watch it or not, we need Joshua to win by that knockout decision for this promotion to land. If that happens, payment will then come in the following two stages:
In the first instance, a payment will be made in cash based on the comparative market price as quoted by Ladbrokes at the time the fight starts. You should expect to see this shortly after the end of the bout while the balance, up to those enhanced odds of 25/1, will then come back as free bet tokens within 24 hours.
Ladbrokes line up a consolation prize with this type of offer and for this fight, should your promotional bet lose, you will receive a free bet token worth £5.00. Those tokens should be used within 4 days or they will expire and while that is a round up of the significant points of this deal, you can check all terms and conditions in full on the Ladbrokes’ promotions page.
Man to Beat
We’ve seen from the standard market prices that the bookmakers have come down heavily on the side of Anthony Joshua. Based on those odds, the win looks assured but will AJ deliver the knockout that will trigger this promotion?
The stats are certainly encouraging: All of Joshua’s previous 20 wins have been by KO so, while this bet is far from guaranteed against a tough opponent, it looks to be a strong proposition and it comes with an excellent enhanced price for new Ladbrokes customers.
