Joshua v Povetkin: Join Ladbrokes for 25/1 AJ by Knockout

Anthony Joshua will put his WBA Heavyweight belt on the line at Wembley Stadium this Saturday as he takes on the mandatory challenger Alexander Povetkin from Russia. Fight fans may be waiting for bigger things next year when AJ battles with Deontay Wilder but for now, it’s a chance for the British fighter to keep ring-fresh against what should be an easier opponent.

We’ve seen plenty of shocks in the sport in recent months but with Joshua a general 1/10 shot for the straight win, it could be time to assess this new customer offer from Ladbrokes with generous enhanced odds of 25/1 for AJ to win by knockout.

Market Prices

We mentioned that Anthony Joshua is a general 1/10 for this bout but you can improve on that slightly by taking the industry best odds of 1/9 with William Hill and MarathonBet. For reference, a win for Povetkin is available at a top price of 8/1 with Betway while the draw comes in at 40/1 with Black Type.

Meanwhile, in the equivalent bet to the one offered by this promotion, victory for Anthony Joshua by knockout is on offer at a best price of 7/11 with MarathonBet. Therefore, there’s some obvious potential for value under this deal so let’s look at the mechanics.

You can do that by crossing over via the link and completing what should be a quick and simple set of registration forms. Only the most essential information is required and remember to input the Promo Code JOSHUA when asked to do so.

That part of the process should be dealt with in just a few minutes, after which you should land at the cashier’s page. Note that the minimum deposit set by this offer stands at £5.00 and more importantly, eWallets such as PayPal, Skrill and Neteller are excluded under terms and conditions.

We therefore suggest selecting a preferred debit or credit card, adding £5.00 or more and then you’re ready to move on to the next phase.

Betting and Payment Process

By using a card your funds should be made available for use immediately and you can then make the opening bet. Stake the fixed sum of £1.00 on Anthony Joshua to win by knockout when he faces Alexander Povetkin at Wembley Stadium on Saturday September 22, 2018.

The bout is scheduled to start at 10.30pm UK time and if, at the end of it, AJ wins by KO, you have a winning bet on your hands which will be paid out as follows:

If the bet lands, returns come back in a two-part process with an initial profit being paid as cash based on Ladbrokes’ standard market price for Joshua by knockout in the method of victory option. That is set to arrive as soon as the fight comes to an end while the remainder will then come back to you within 24 hours as a series of free bet tokens.

Those two stages will take you up to the price boost of 25/1 but do look out for those tokens as they must be used in full within 4 days.

AJ On Course?

The encouraging stat in relation to this offer shows that Anthony Joshua has won 20 of his 21 professional fights by KO. Also, when we keep in mind those short odds in the result betting, this is a strong offer even though it’s not guaranteed to drop in.

If you agree and are new to Ladbrokes, feel free to check all terms and conditions and get involved.
