Live betting odds to be displayed on ringcards this Saturday

For the first time, live odds from Betfair will be displayed on LED Boards in the ring in when Darren Barker takes on Kerry Hope on Saturday.

The specially designed 'digi-boards', which will show the round number on the reverse, will be displayed in the ring between rounds by Only Way is Essex actress Chloe Sims (pictured), who will be lending her support to local boy Barker.

Betfair's Alex Bake said: "These boards will enhance the betting experience for boxing fans whom can keep on top of the markets throughout the night and make sure they've placed the best bet."

Chloe Sims said: "I'm excited to be part of the show on Saturday and I can't wait to get into the ring on Saturday night, the atmosphere is going to be electric. Me and my family love boxing and we're going to be there backing Darren to win."


Crolla V Murray

A lot of people consider the lightweight bout taking place in Manchester this weekend between Anthony Crolla (27-4-1) and John Murray (32-2) to be a very close call indeed. The contest, in UK's second biggest city on Easter Weekend, is for the WBO lightweight Inter-continental title, but the significance of the result means more than the marginal title as it will put them a step closer to a world title fight. Even if this isn't immediately forthcoming, the division is stacked in Britain, and can throw up some massive domestic scraps.

Scott Quigg

Bury's Scott Quigg retained his WBA world super bantamweight title at the Phones 4 U Arena with a second round stoppage of South African Tshifhiwa Munyai, and now looks towards unification fights with Leo Santa Cruz, Kiko Martinez and, hopefully at some point, Carl Frampton.
