London is a bustling hub of activity and you will easily find a sports venue buzzing with excitement, where the food is delicious and live sports games draw loud cheers and celebration (and some upsets, no doubt).
We know London loves sport, whether it’s football, rugby, tennis or F1 racing. Boxing is also a major drawcard in London Town, and the best place to catch a live match is among like-minded fans. Boxing betting is also incredibly popular as more and more fans are drawn to the excitement and thrill of the game. It also helps that boxing legends like Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao bring some much-needed drama, sweat, and tears to the ring.
While the likes of the aforementioned boxers are not yet to return to the ring anytime soon, there is plenty of upcoming matches to keep fans entertained and bettors to wager on their choice. October is a month packed with fights, and according to the latest boxing betting odds, the clash between Teofimo Lopez and George Kambosos Jr sees the former the favourite to win the fight with odds of 1/10, with the latter priced at 11/2. As we prep for some thrilling spectacles over the next few months, there is always a spot to watch the big fight in London, whether it’s a venue down the road, a more bougie establishment, or a no-frills location.
