The biggest fight in British boxing history is almost upon us, and bookmakers Paddy Power are expecting a betting bonanza on Anthony Joshua v Wladimir Klitschko.
The bookmaker predicts a punchy £20m will be staked across the industry on the Fight, a number which would make it the second biggest boxing betting event of all time behind Floyd Mayweather v Manny Pacquiao back in 2015.

Over 90,000 boxing fans are expected to watch the fight at Wembley, with millions tuning in at home to cheer on the heavyweights.
And unsurprisingly, there’s been plenty of patriotic support for the Londoner, with a Joshua victory in Rounds 1-3 set to be the biggest loser for the bookie.
One punter will be hoping for a knockout success for AJ, after placing a cool £18,000 on the Brit to win the fight at odds of 8/11.
Whilst thousands have already been staked on the fight, the bookie is expecting to see the weight of money arrive tomorrow as excitement grows ahead of the bout.
Paddy Power said: “Big fights like this always attract casual fans and despite no table-throwing and fancy dress antics in the build-up, there’s no doubt this one has caught the imagination of the British public.
“We’re expecting over £20m to be staked across the industry – putting it just behind the Mayweather v Pacquiao fight in 2015.”
