This Saturday sees Britain’s unified heavyweight boxing champion Anthony Joshua return to the ring as he takes on mandatory WBA challenger Alexander Povetkin. It’s maybe not the battle that fight fans were hoping for but it will be a good workout for the champion and his Russian opponent will be hopeful of causing an upset.
The bookies don’t share that hope however with Joshua a red hot favourite to win at Wembley Stadium so this could be a good time to consider this new customer offer from Coral* that takes AJ’s odds on price all the way up to 25/1.
*18+ Eligible UK+IRE players. Paypal & some deposit & bet types excl. Min first £5 bet within 14 days of account reg at min odds 1/2 = 4x £5 free bets. Free bets valid for 4 days, stake not returned. No cashout, restrictions + T&Cs apply.
If you already hold an account with Coral then you can’t, unfortunately, take up this deal and the standard odds from this bookmaker stand at 1/10. Alternatively, you can improve on that by claiming the best industry price of 2/17 with MarathonBet but we’re still not getting close to the 25/1 available under this promotion.
To complete the result market, victory for Povetkin is available at best odds of 8/1 with 188Bet and we should also mention the draw which is quoted at 40/1. Those are the numbers and if you want to look at this offer in greater detail, here’s how it works.
Get on Board
As mentioned above, this promotion is exclusively open to new customers only so, you can only qualify if you don’t already hold an account with Coral. If you fit that profile, you can cross over from here and complete what should be a very simple set of sign up forms.
Only the most essential of information is needed at this point and it’s a swift process that should be over with in around five minutes or so. Once completed, Coral should take you straight to their cashier.
At this stage there are some important points to remember so firstly, please keep in mind that the minimum deposit set by this offer stands at £5.00. More importantly, eWallets such as Skrill, Neteller and PaySafeCard are specifically excluded under the terms of this promo so we suggest funding via a debit or credit card which will allow you to move immediately on to the next phase.
Betting and Getting Paid
With money ready to go, stake the fixed sum of £1.00 on this qualifying bet of Anthony Joshua to beat Alexander Povetkin when the two fighters meet at Wembley Stadium on Saturday September 22, 2018. The bout is set to go off at 10.30pm UK time and if, at the end of it, Joshua has won, payment is made via the following two-stage process:
Initially, you should look forward to receiving a return made out in cash and this will be based on Coral’s standard market price for the Joshua win. This will come back to you as soon as the fight comes to an end while the balance, up to the enhanced odds figure of 25/1, will then hit your account as a series of free bet tokens within 24 hours.
Please look out for those tokens as they must be used within 4 days before they expire and while that completes the significant points of this deal, you are free to check out all terms and conditions over on the Coral offers page if you wish.
At 39, Alexander Povetkin comes into this fight with an impressive record of 34 wins and just one defeat in his professional career but can he compete against the younger Joshua who has those unified belts behind him?
Judging by the prices available in the result markets, the bookmakers are already looking beyond this battle and at the Anthony Joshua vs Deontay Wilder bout which will go off in 2019. As we always say, nothing is ever certain but this looks to be one of the stronger promos of the week and at 25/1 for a Joshua victory, now could be a good time to get on board with Coral.
