Today's fight in Sheffield between welterweights Kell Brook and Matthew Hatton has attracted a good amount of fan interest in the United Kingdom, but the oddsmakers aren't seeing this as a close one, with Brook (26-0, 18 KO) installed as the heavy favorite against Hatton (42-5-2, 16 KO).

Sportsbook Brook Hatton
5Dimes -1250
+800
Bovada -1000
+600


Brook, 25, is a rising star in the division and appears to clearly be the best welterweight in the UK, and may well be the best European welterweight in the game, with Jan Zaveck and I suppose Vyacheslav Senchenko also in that discussion. Hatton should be expected to give the clichéd 110% in this fight, but it would be, by far, a career-best performance from him if he were to pull this fight off.

On the undercard, European middleweight champion Grzegorz Proksa defends against Kerry Hope of Wales. Proksa is favored at -3500 and -3050, with Hope at +1200 and +1400.

Commonwealth super bantamweight champ Carl Frampton is an absolutely enormous favorite against Ghana's Prosper Ankrah. Frampton has a line of -5400 from 5Dimes, with Ankrah at +1800.

Also on the undercard, but not televised, is a welterweight clash between former British champion Lee Purdy and Adnan Amar. Purdy is -125 on two lines, with Amar at -105 on both. That's not a typo -- they're both "favorite" bets.

Bad Let Hook will have live coverage of the full Brook vs Hatton card on Sky Sports this afternoon at 5 p.m. EDT, and stay tuned for more in-depth previews of all the fights.
