Joshua v Takam: 25/1 on Joshua up for Grabs with Coral
Cardiff hosts this weekend’s big fight and it’s one of the most anticipated boxing battles of 2017 so far. Never mind that the promoters were forced into a late change of opponent – this is a massive heavyweight title fight and one where we will get another glimpse of the undefeated Anthony Joshua.
19 wins in 19 fights – all of them by knockout – suggests we have one of the world’s best on show right now and AJ is a heavy odds on favourite as he enters the ring to fight Carlos Takam. Punters will be seeking out side bets to get a little more value but, there is an excellent new customer deal from Coral that could put a Joshua win price of 25/1 on the table.
Let’s put that price into perspective: If you were a regular customer, betting in the open market then Coral would currently give you win odds on AJ of 1/50 while the best price we could find elsewhere was the 1/25 quoted by MarathonBet.
To complete the picture, victory for Takam is at best odds of 33/2 with MarathonBet again while the draw is quoted at 40/1 with Paddy Power. Based on comparative records and where these two men are in their careers, that’s a reasonable assessment of their chances so what do you need to do if you want to take up this offer?
As this is for new customers only the first step is to sign up for a new Coral account and you can do that via this link and register in a quick and easy process that should take no more than a couple of minutes. You’ll be on board as a new Coral customer very quickly and at that point they should take you to their cashier’s page.
Here you must make your initial credit and this should be at a minimum of £5.00 using either a debit or credit card. Certain e-wallets such as Skrill, Neteller and PaySafeCard are excluded from this promo so it’s safer to avoid them and use a card instead.
Funds should be made available straight away and you can then stake the fixed amount of £1.00 on Anthony Joshua to beat Carlos Takam when these two fighters meet in Cardiff on Saturday October 28, 2017.
If that bet lands, here’s how you will be paid together with details of a consolation if it loses.
Profits at Coral’s book price at the start of the fight will come straight back to you as cash while the balance, up to that enhanced figure of 25/1, will arrive as free bet tokens and you will then have 4 days in which to use these before they expire.
If the bet doesn’t come in and Takam wins or the fight ends in a draw, you will receive a £5.00 free bet token with that same 4 day expiry limit. Those are the specific terms but feel free to check all the ts and cs to make sure you are happy.
Interestingly, Anthony Joshua has said that this opponent could take him deep into the fight but others say that Carlos Takam just isn’t in the same league. At 36 years old, he certainly hasn’t got age on his side and if you think the bookies have got this one right, a price of 25/1 on AJ will be tough to beat.
