BOOKMAKERS William Hill are taking more bets on Mark de Mori than David Haye, ahead of “The Hayemaker’s” comeback fight on Saturday. 65 per cent of all bets are on Mark de Mori to win the fight, while the most popular bet is for de Mori to win by knockout in Round 1 at odds of 80/1! But the bookies disagree on the David Haye betting, making Haye the overwhelming 1/25 favourite to be victorious (staking £25 on Haye would return just £26 if he wins).
“Punters think David Haye is over the hill and that he’s past his prime,” said William Hill spokesman Jon Ivan-Duke, “but we think he’s still got more than enough skill to defeat de Mori.”
