Enhanced Odds Round Betting on Joshua v Takam from 888Sport

We’ve already seen a wide choice of new customer offers being lined up for the big heavyweight title fight this weekend. After a late change of opponent, defending champion Anthony Joshua will step into the ring to take on Carlos Takam in Cardiff on Saturday and there is huge interest from the betting community.

However, with a best standard market price of 1/25 from MarathonBet on a Joshua win, punters are looking elsewhere for value, either with the side markets or via these new customer promos.

However, with a new deal that has just landed from 888Sport, you could combine a bit of both to get a choice of excellent price boosts.

The Details

Here’s what’s on offer: 888Sport will either give you an enhanced price of 50/1 if Anthony Joshua wins it in round one or, you can get 11/1 on AJ to win the fight between the first and the third rounds.

Regular customers to 888 would get 11/2 on that first round victory or a much shorter 6/5 on the second option so there is definite value here. In order to take it up, here’s what you need to do next.


As this is an offer for new customers to 888Sport you can only proceed if you don’t already hold an account here. Registration is fast and simple however and you can head over via this link and be on board in around two minutes or possibly less.

From this point you must make a minimum deposit of £10.00 via a debit or credit card and when prompted you should enter the Promo Code 888ODDS. Your funds should then be made available straight away and then it’s time to make your bet.

You can’t take both suggestions so take your pick between either Joshua in round one or Joshua between rounds one and three and then stake a maximum of £5.00 on your chosen outcome. If you are a winner, here’s how you will be paid out.

Payment Process

Profits on winning bets will be paid at the published 888Sport book price and these will be settled straight away. Subsequent returns at whichever of the two price boosts is applicable will then be paid to you as free bet tokens.

These will arrive within 72 hours and you will then have 7 days in which to use them before they expire. Feel free to check all of the terms and conditions but those are the main points that you need to consider on this deal.


Anthony Joshua has won all of his 19 professional fights by knockout. He’s a man who likes to get it over with early and while he has said that Takam may take him to the tenth or twelfth round, experts suggest he’s bluffing and it should be a quick finish.

Those experts may be wrong of course; nothing is ever certain in betting and we all know that but if you want something a little more interesting than the straight result market, this is a very generous lift on market prices for early finishes and it’s open to all new customers of 888Sport.
