We’re only three months away from the year’s most anticipated fight between Anthony Joshua and Andy Ruiz Jr, yet it would probably be fair to say that punters are still a bit unsure as to who they should put their money on. Understandably, some are still recovering from having their fingers burned in New York, while others can’t quite find the bravery needed to put their money on Ruiz Jr.
That’s what makes this such an intriguing bout and one that will undoubtedly bring the world of boxing to a standstill when it happens. Despite all the uncertainty around the clash and even after Ruiz Jr was crowned heavyweight champion in June, the expert opinion would be to back the 29-year-old Joshua to right the wrongs of Madison Square Garden by knocking his Mexican-American opponent out.
While that may get a few eyebrows raised, it isn’t really a scenario that is farfetched at all. On paper, there is only one winner and that is the Watford-born Anthony Joshua.
Bookmakers have reacted to the news that Andy Murray has had successful surgery on his hip by adding the former world number one back into their Wimbledon outright market.
The three-time Grand Slam winner announced back in January that he was set to retire from the sport in 2019 with an appearance at his home Slam looking very unlikely. However, his chances of featuring have now increased.
Murray’s last competitive action on a tennis court was in the Australian Open back in January where he was beaten in five-sets by Roberto Bautista Agut. The 31-year-old was two sets down in that tie but showed fantastic character to level the match at 2-2. Sadly for Murray’s fans, he ran out of energy in the final set where the Spaniard was able to seal the match.

And as sports betting is legalized in the US, most major US sports leagues are getting into partnerships or accept sponsorships from gaming operators. The Major League Baseball (MLB) is the latest to announce another authorized gaming operator.
The MLB’s second authorized gaming operator is DraftKings, coming after MGM Resorts last year. The terms of the deal is not being disclosed, but it does cover a multiple number of years. This deal will also allow DraftKings access to the official data feed of the MLB. In addition, DraftKings will have the right to use the league, as well as its teams’ trademarks for marketing through official channels of the MLB.
Anthony Van Dyck has been installed as the 2-1 favourite to win the Irish Derby at the Curragh later this month where he will be looking to complete a Classic double following his success in the Epsom Derby for his trainer Aidan O’Brien.
The three-year-old colt hit the front with 100 yards to go at Epsom where he stayed on strongly to hold off the strong challenge of four horses who all finished a length behind him at the end of the 1m4f contest.
The son of Galileo soon became one of the leading two-year-olds last season following victories at Killarney, Leopardstown and the Curragh, the latter being the Group Two Futurity Stakes where he beat his stablemate, Christmas.
His success in Ireland earned Anthony Van Dyck his shot in the Dewhurst Stakes at Newmarket last October where he could only finish in third place behind Too Darn Hot and Advertise, respectively, in the Group One two-year-old contest.
