The Liverpudlian is the 4/1 outsider for victory on Saturday night, but has been the subject of 85% of all bets placed on the winner.

Meanwhile, just 6% of punters fancy the odds-on favourite Usyk (1/6) for glory. And there’s 9% of you going for an ambitious Draw at odds of 28/1.

Alex Apati of Ladbrokes said: “People wrote Bellew off – twice – against David Haye, but the latest figures suggest punters are finally giving Bomber the respect he deserves – even if our traders think he’ll struggle.”
