UNDERDOG – Betting Odds for TJ Doheny v Danny Roman unification


It’s champion versus champion and an under-the-radar show-stealer in the eyes of many but bookies believe TJ Doheny has a mountain to climb tonight.

Portlaoise’s IBF super bantamweight champion seeks to unify in Los Angeles when he takes on WBA champ Danny Roman and is been viewed as a big outsider.

The fight plays out at The Forum in Inglewood as the chief support to the big Matchroom USA card topped by the WBC super flyweight title rematch between Srisaket Sor Rungvasai and Juan Francisco Estrada.

Known as a road warrior, Doheny upset the odds to win the title in Tokyo last year and will need to do more, far more, tonight to keep his red belt and add a black one.

Doheny can be had as wide as 5/1 with Betfred to get the win while the best price for Roman is 1/5 with Boylesports.

The draw is as high as 25/1 (Betfred, William Hill).

If backers believe that ‘The Power’ will be able to use this pop to claim a stoppage win, this Method of Victory is 9/1 with a number of outlets (bet365, Ladbrokes, Coral, Betfred). On the other hand, a points win for Doheny comes in at 10/1 (Betfair, Paddy Power, Betfred, bet365).

The likeliest Method of Victory, according to the oddsmakers, is a points win for Roman – 4/6 with Boylesports. Boyles, along with SkyBet, also have the best price for a Roman stoppage at 11/4

The fight is 1/2 to go the distance (Betfair, Paddy Power) and 19/10 (Betfred) to end inside.

In terms of round groups, a first half stoppage for Roman is 8/1 – as is a second half finish. The corresponding prices for Doheny are 16/1 for both (all prices SkyBet).
