It’s one of the most competitive looking eight-way tussles yet. Experienced campaigner Tony Dodson heads the outright betting with some firms but is available at 7/2 with bet365 and the same firm make him 4/9 to win his quarter-final clash with Michael Banbula.
Dodson vies for favouritism with Travis Dickinson (7/2, Sportingbet), who remains unbeaten after seven bouts but as he faces another fighter with a blemish-free record, Llewellyn Davies, Dickinson looks a touch risky.
At 11/2 with Betfred, the man to follow could be Joe Smyth. The 25-year-old has a decent amateur pedigree and although he has a defeat on his record, the St Albans scrapper knows this is a big chance to resurrect his career. He’s 1/2 courtesy of 888Sport to win his first contest against Menay Edwards.
