Tevin Farmer v James Tennyson – BETTING ODDS


James Tennyson [22(18)-2(2)] challenges for the IBF super featherweight title tomorrow night in Boston and looks to be a very live underdog against champion Tevin Farmer [26(5)-4(2)-1].

The Belfast boxer boasts power and size over the slick Philly southpaw and the question is whether Tennyson can get his shots off on the rather elusive Farmer.

Farmer, the home fighter, is the favourite to begin with and is 1/3 with William Hill. For Tennyson to cause the upset you can get 3/1 with BetVictor while the draw comes in as high as 28/1 with the likes of BetStars.

For those staking on Tennyson, it would look to be a smart move to boost your bet and back the Poleglass puncher for a stoppage. An inside-the-distance win for ‘The Assassin’ is 4/1 with most outlets compared to over 10/1 for the Irishman to win on the cards.

By comparison, Farmer, who has only five knockouts in over 30 fights, is 5/1 with Blacktype to force a stoppage and odds-on to win on points – with 13/18 with Marathon being the best price.

Tennyson manager Mark Dunlop has tipped a first round stoppage for his man – and this price is as high as 55/1 with Marathon.
