Katie Taylor v Viviane Obenauf – Betting Odds

Katie Taylor steps into the pro ring for the second time tomorrow night at the Manchester Arena on the undercard of the big Anthony Joshua v Eric Molina pay-per-view.

Taylor takes a step up following her debut destruction of Karina Kopinska and will face Brazilian-Swiss lightweight Viviane Obenauf [9(4)-1(0)] in a fight scheduled for six two-minute rounds in front of a massive audience.

Unsurprisingly though, nineteen-time major medal winner Taylor is still a heavy favourite going into the bout and is best-priced at 1/66 (Ladbrokes). Obenauf can be had a 25/1 (Betfair, Betfred, Paddy Power) to pull off the upsets, while a draw can be had at 40/1 (general).

While the outright winner odds are prohibitive, there is potential value to be had on the fight if one looks to the extended markets.

In terms of Method of Victory, a stoppage victory for Taylor comes in at 4/11 (general), while a points triumph for the Bray super feather is best-priced at 11/5 (William Hill, Paddy Power, Betfair). By comparison, a KO for Obenauf is 33/1 (Paddy Power, Betfred), while a points win is 66/1 (Paddy Power).

Group Round betting sees Taylor 7/4 for Rounds 1-3 (Paddy Power) and 13/8 for Rounds 4-6 (William Hill, Sky Bet). Obenauf on the other hand is 50/1 and 66/1 for both markets respectively.

Specific Round Betting for Taylor is best priced as follows:
Round 1 – 10/1 (Paddy Power, Coral, Betfair)
Round 2 – 6/1 (general)
Round 3 – 11/2 (bet365, Coral, SkyBet)
