The 26-year-old has been crunched into Winx-like odds for the battle at the Newcastle Entertainment Centre on Wednesday night.
The Tab has drawn Tszyu into the price of just $1.10 to beat Hogan, while other corporate bookmakers have drawn Tszyu into just $1.08. When the markets first opened, Tszyu began as the $1.30 favourite with some betting companies. Sportsbet said this week Tszyu had been moved in from $1.25 into $1.11. Hogan is out to $7 with most bookmakers.
“Hogan’s camp is talking him up, as they do, but punters are having none of it. The bulk are firmly in the corner of Tim Tszyu, who chases his 18th straight win,” spokesman Rich Hummerston said.
