Anthony Joshua v Dillian Whyte betting

WILLIAM HILL, the proud sponsors of the Bad Intentions card at the O2 in London, are getting ready for the biggest night in British boxing since Carl Froch v George Groves II. The bookies are already starting to see huge bets coming through for the top-of-the-bill match between the unbeaten duo – Dillian Whyte and Anthony Joshua. One punter has staked £100,000 on Joshua at odds of 1/14 and stands to collect £107,142 should the 2012 Olympic champion be successful.
