British boxing twinned with Denmark

British boxers have been making their mark on the sport throughout many decades. Thus, it is only natural that their exploits have made them and British boxing very popular abroad. One of the countries which has become infatuated with British boxing is Denmark.

Denmark itself has a tradition of fighters who have locked horns with Brits on more than one occasion. The most obvious one is Mikkel Kessler, who fought great British fighters such as Carl Froch and Joe Calzaghe.

On November 3, 2007 at the Millennium Stadium in Cardiff, Wales, Joe Calzaghe - 43-0 at the time - secured a unanimous decision over Mikkel Kessler in a unification clash between the two undefeated super-middleweight stars. Calzaghe, roared on by 50,000 fans, handed the Great Dane his first defeat in 40 fights and unified three world titles in the process.

Danes are of course also interested in the British boxing stars of today. The fights of champions such as Anthony Joshua and Tyson Fury have garnered a lot of attention with Danish fans. These have been made available through various streaming platforms.

Another way of showcasing their popularity is by looking at the betting which has taken place in relation to these fights. All the Danish bookmakers are, of course, offering bets on British boxing. It is only natural that it is the big events such as the fights of Fury or Joshua, which are drawing most people attention – also when it comes to Denmark.

Denmark has a strong betting culture, and this has unsurprisingly translated well when it comes to British boxing. People are also keenly aware that there are multiple factors which need to be taken into consideration when betting on boxing. Thus, a lot of work goes into research when it comes to betting on Boxing. One way of doing said research is by looking at boxing betting tips on Odds.dk – a Danish site on betting.

As is the case with most other sports, the most important things for Danes when betting on boxing is of course finding a bet which has good value. In order to accomplish that task you need to be knowledgeable when it comes to British boxing. This is of course something which encourages people to follow the sport closely in order to be able to spot a good bet further along the line.

These days there are multiple big fights a year, as promoters are obviously aiming to make each one bigger than the last. Part of what Danes find particularly interesting is the spectacle leading up to the big fight itself. This is also something which tends to take up quite a bit of space in the country’s mainstream media.

Since a lot of the biggest boxing stars at the moment are British, these are of course the ones on whom the Danish media are focusing. These are also the fights on which the Danish bookmakers will primarily focus their efforts when it comes to things such as specials and campaigns.

The fact that the Brits have so many great fighters is also something which places a certain amount of pressure on these fighters. In order to retain the attention of fighting enthusiasts such as the ones in Denmark, the British fights will have to stay on top of their game in the years to come, and promoters will have to keep coming up with new and interesting fights which will capture the imaginations of Danish fans and bookmakers alike.
