Odds released on Frampton-Donaire all-Irish undercard bouts


Odds have been released for the three major all-Irish bouts on the Frampton-Donaire undercard in Belfast this Spring.

A stellar line-up was confirmed yesterday for the Saturday April 21st show at the SSE Odyssey Arena which will be shown live on BT Sport and BoxNation.

At middleweight Conrad Cummings defends his WBO European belt against Luke Keeler, Jono Carroll defends his IBF East/West Europe super featherweight belt against Marco McCullough, and there is a light welterweight grudge match between Tyrone McKenna and Phil Sutcliffe.

So far Paddy Power and Betfair are the only company to be offering prices on these three match-ups and their odds – only outright win markets are offered at present – are largely identical.

Coalisland’s Cummings is 4/9 favourite to overcome Keeler in their long-mooted clash. The Dubliner is a 13/8 underdog while the draw is 22/1.

Finglas-Dunshauglin scrapper Jono Carroll is a 1/3 favourite to beat Marco McCullough. The Belfast man, stepping up in weight, is 2/1 and the draw is 20/1.

A third Ulster favourite, Tyrone McKenna is 2/5 (Paddy Power only) to beat Phil Sutcliffe Jr. The Dubliner is at 15/8 while the odds on a draw are 18/1.
