Betting odds for Luke Keeler v Lewis Taylor

Tomorrow night in Dublin, Luke Keeler [11(5)-2(1)] will take on Lewis Taylor in the headline fight of the Red Corner Promotions ‘Unfinished Business’ card.

Taylor [19(3)-2(0)-1] is a former English champion and Commonwealth title challenger, and the Dronefield middleweight presents a very real test for Keeler in what is one of the best, most evenly-matched headline fights to take place in Dublin for a long while.

Bookmakers see the fight as a close one too, and have made Ballyfermot’s Keeler a small favourite for the National Stadium-hosted clash.

‘Cool Hand’ Luke is priced at 4/9 (general) for the win in the eight-round fight and is available at 8/15 with minor outlet sportingbet.

Taylor meanwhile can be had at 2/1 with Coral, Ladbrokes, SkyBet, and William Hill.

A draw in the Dublin duel is best-priced at 20/1 with sportingbet, Betway, 32Red, and 888.

Irish outlet Paddy Power are also offering odds for some of the undercard clashes.

Noely Murphy is priced at a prohibitive 1/200 for his BUI Celtic welterweight title clash with Galician Avelino Vazquez. The Spaniard is a 22/1 underdog with the draw being priced at 40/1.

Cork’s Murphy is 7/4 to win on points, while a stoppage is priced at 2/5. The corresponding odds for Vazquez are 66/1 and 25/1 respectively.

There is just a straight win market for Steve Collins Jr’s eight rounder with Pablo Sosa, and it is identical to the Murphy-Vazquez market.

Steve Collins Jr – 1/200
Pablo Sosa – 22/1
Draw  40/1
