Early Betting Odds for Ryan Burnett v Lee Haskins

The fight may be still over five weeks away, but you can already place bets on the winner of the IBF bantamweight title fight between Bristol champion Lee Haskins and Belfast challenger Ryan Burnett.

The North Belfast man faces Haskins at the SSE Odyssey Arena on Saturday June 10th, live on Sky Sports.

The title fight represents a huge, and relatively early, test for 24 year old Burnett – indeed there are some who suggest it may be too soon. Regardless, the bookmakers have installed the home fighter as an early betting favorite.

Currently there is just a win/draw/win market available, and Burnett comes in as a 4/9 favourite with 32Red, Unibet, and 888sport.

Englishman Haskins, making his second defence is 15/8 with Paddy Power and Betfair for what promises an extremely tight fight.

If the draw takes your fancy, it can be had at 20/1 general.

Stay tuned to Irish-Boxing.com for further markets once they are released.

The undercard of the Burnett-Haskins bill on June 10th currently features Feargal McCrory, Matt Wilton, Padraig McCrory, Paul Hyland Jr, James Tennyson, Sean Magee, and Paddy Gallagher.

Tickets cost £30, £40, £60, £100, and £150 (VIP), and can be bought from the boxers involved or HERE.
