Updated Odds for Ireland’s Last Man Standing

There have been some shifts in the market as money continues to pour in for tonight’s Ireland’s Last Man Standing tournament in Dublin.

The eight-man single-elimination competition takes place at The National Stadium with the middleweight contenders fighting it out for a €25,000 top prize.

Following the release of odds on Paddy Power last night, there have been a number of changes to the initial prices.

Opening favourite Roy Sheahan [1(0)-0] has shortened and the pro novice is now just 11/8 having started at 15/8.

Top seed JJ McDonagh [15(8)-3(1)] remains second favourite, but has drifted from 5/2 to 11/4.

There is a new third favourite, with Jack Cullen [9(3)-0] coming in from 15/2 to 4/1. The rangey Bolton puncher bumps down Chris Blaney who has gone from 4/1 to 9/2.

Tipped by many, Nick Quigley [15(3)-3(2)] is now as big as 10/1 having started at 15/2.

Among the outsiders Belfast veteran Ger Healy [7(0)-4(1)-1] remains at 20/1, while Vladimir Belujsky [2(2)-0-1] has come in to 20/1 having seen his initial 22/1 price stretch to 25/1.

22/1 initially, Owen Jobburn [4(1)-0-1] is now out on his own at 25/1.


Paddy Power are also offering odds on the massive Irish light middleweight title clash between Jay Byrne [6(2)-3(1)] and Craig O’Brien [7(0)-0].

The prices remain constant here, with O’Brien a slight favourite at 8/11, while Byrne is EVENS. The draw is priced at 18/1.

All odds correct as of 1:30pm March 3rd.
