Martin Gethin Vs Ben Murphy – 18th January 2013

Location – Town Hall, Walsall, West Midlands, United Kingdom

Vacant BBBofC British lightweight title

I am keeping this short, i wasnt going to bet this fight as i originally only saw odds of 6/4 on Murphy however i have just noticed 15/8 at Stan James and i think there is a little value in that price.

Murphy is a strong fighter and i think Gethin will have a tough job of getting him out of there. Gethin stopped Carl Johanneson in his last bout but i dont think Carl is the fighter he once used to be.

Murphy doesnt have the best record losing 5 of his 15 professional bouts but i think bigger fights bring the best out of him, he came close in his fight with Ashley Theophane until a cut in the 7th round effected him and he was eventually stopped in the 11th.

i think Murphy has a decent chance of an upset in this bout. and 15/8 is a good enough price.

ATR’s Bet – £80 on Murphy 15/8 Stan James
