We’re back at The Theater at Madison Square Garden as Mick Conlan [5(4)-0] seeks to make it six unbeaten.
Stepping up to eight rounds in his first bout under new trainer Adam Booth, Conlan takes on Hungarian David Berna [15(14)-2(2)].
Though some have described it as a step-up in level, Conlan remains an overwhelming favourite to destroy his sixth pro opponent.
Conlan is a best-priced 1/50 to win with William Hill. An unlikely upset for Berna is 20/1 with Betfair and Paddy Power. The draw is 33/1 (general).
In terms of Method of Victory, Conlan is 1/12 (general) to force a stoppage while a points win is 15/2 (Paddy Power and Betfair). Berna is 35/1 for both a knockout and a points win respectively (Paddy Power and Betfair).
Currently, bet365 are the only outlet to offer round betting, and they view a first-round stoppage as the likeliest outcome.
On his previous two forays away from the domestic scene in Hungary and Slovakia, Berna has been stopped in the first and second rounds.
