Punter Blasts Horn For $50,000


Punters are right behind Brisbane boxer Jeff Horn ahead of  Sunday’s WBO welterweight bout against Terence Crawford in Las Vegas.

A Horn victory will see one punter reap a massive dividend after making a $50,000 wager on Horn, when the Aussie was a $7.00 chance. Another $30,000 wager, at $6.00, saw traders shave Horn’s price into $5.50.

Crawford is a short priced favourite, but bets for the challenger are hard to come by.

The biggest wager on the American is $13,000 at his current quote of $1.16, but overall Horn holds eight times more money.

Bet on the Jeff Horn title fight here.

Both boxers will wear the lightly padded MX Gloves. The gloves have horse hair filling instead of foam, which will increase the chances of the fight ending in a knock-out.


It would be a huge upset if Horn beats Crawford, but punter confidence is high. Aussies have a history of performing above and beyond in the sporting arena and Horn is certainly capable of pulling off another shock win.

Horn was the $4.75 outsider, backed in from $5.50 mind you, when he beat the legendary Manny Pacquiao in Brisbane last year.  Pacquiao was the $1.20 favourite for that bout, which went the 12-round distance before the Hornet claimed the title with unanimous points decision.
