You would have to go a long way to find anyone predicting a Tommy Coyle win against Huddersfield’s Tyrone Nurse.
The two go toe-to-toe in Saturday’s light-welterweight British title fight at Leeds Arena with champion Nurse the heavy favourite.
A handful of leading bookmakers – Skybet, totesport.com, Betfred, Betvictor, Paddy Power and Stan James among them – have 26-year-old Nurse as their 4/11 favourite.
And those same firms mark up Hull’s Coyle – known as Boom Boom because he has a puncher’s chance – as a 2/1 outsider to take the Lonsdale Belt away from Linthwaite’s Northern Fitness Gym.
The most popular bet has been Coyle to win at the longer odds of 28/11, being offered by 10Bet, while Tyrone Nurse at 4/9 (William Hill) has also taken a hammering.
Those fancying a draw have been taking the 28/1 offered by Stan James and bwin.com.
