Ricky Hatton and price per head sportsbooks believe that the super middleweight fight between George Groves and Carl Froch will be much closer than many may think.
Pay per head services know that on Saturday night, Hatton backs Froch to keep his WBA and IBF titles at the Phones 4u Arena in Manchester, and boxing fans everywhere can’t wait to see what will happen, and are anticipating an amazing showdown.
But Hatton, former two-weight world champion, said that if Groves upsets the odds, he wouldn’t be surprised, but price per head sportsbooks are just waiting for this clash to get underway, as nobody knows for sure what will happen in the ring.
Price per head sportsbooks remember that two years ago, Groves proved the bookies wrong when he gave bitter rival James DeGale’s first professional defeat, claiming the British title.
“It will make for a fantastic fight – and one that I think will be a lot closer than a lot of people might think,” Hatton told the MEN.
And price per head sportsbooks agree – as Groves can be quite unpredictable.
“Groves is jumping up another couple of levels, but he has the tools to beat Froch.
“If you stand and fight with Froch you will come off second best – but if you show speed and movement, like Andre Ward did, it’s a different story. Groves is a very clever, intelligent man. He showed that against James DeGale.
“No one gave him a chance in that fight and he came out on top.
“He’s got the style and ammunition and I think he’s got under Froch’s skin a bit.
