80 per cent of Sky Bet Customers Backing Haye to Beat Klitschko

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwire - June 30, 2011) - Online betting experts Sky Bet are reporting overwhelming patriotic support for David Haye ahead of his world heavyweight unification bout with Wladimir Klitschko.

More than 80 per cent of bets placed in Sky Bet's Haye v Klitschko betting markets are for the Londoner to come out from Saturday's showdown victorious.

Klitschko is Sky Bet's 8/13 favourite but it's 30-year-old Haye who is dominating the betting.

Sky Bet's Head of PR, Dale Tempest, said: "Our customers are in no doubt who is going to win on Saturday.

"Defeat is seemingly out of the question as they take the 11/8 for a Haye victory.

"But what is surprising is the amount of money on the fight to go the full 12 rounds and Haye to win on points."

The online betting firm are offering 22 markets on the big fight including a massive 28/1 for Haye to win inside the opening 60 seconds and it's 17/2 he is knocked down by the Ukrainian but goes on to win the fight.
