I had a little wager on Abraham to finish Bozic in their bout last night, expecting a bulge in my sportsbook accounts I checked on the balance(s) this morning. To cut a short story even shorter, the bet had not been settled and upon enquiry it appears the fight is under investigation for 'match fixing'. Bets therefore will not be settled until the investigations have been concluded.
Assuming you've seen the finish to the fight, what do you think? The punch seemed a little awkward to me, Bozic looked to have connected with the pinky area of the hand at a strange angle. Much like the Dirrell - Abraham saga, we can't form any conclusive opinions as to whether Bozic could have continued or not, but what is your opinion? I can't recall having seen a fight ended like that. As far as the fix goes, I'm not privy as to how they are going to carry out their investigation but one bookmaker told me they were sparked by irregular betting patterns which led to markets being pulled down late Wednesday night.
As far as I'm concerned, I never like to be on the side of those screaming ''shenanigans!!'' at every opportunity. Also, as far as my wallet is concerned, I hope this issue is settled as soon as possible and simply put down to a freak occurrence. Whatever happens, this certainly will not have provided the much needed confidence boost for Abraham ahead of his bout with Andre Ward
