The Wanted vs One Direction: Max George favourite to beat Zayn Malik in boxing match – Jay McGuiness to beat Harry Styles!
Max George would be an odds-on favourite if he were to get it on with Zayn Malik in the battle of the heavyweight boy bands according to Ladbrokes.
Despite Zayn offering Max the chance to slug it out in the ring the bookies aren’t convinced of the 1D singer’s fighting ability and make Manchester hard-man Max the 1/2 favourite to win the bout, should it go ahead.
It also appears the entire under card would go the way of The Wanted with Siva another odds-on favourite (1/3) in his mythical match up with Louis. In the battle of the hair, Jay looks the biggest certainty of all at 1/5 to beat 3/1 outsider Harry Styles.
In fact, Liam is the only member of the ‘bigger’ boy band to be favoured as a 4/7 favourite to beat rival Nathan. Due to a mismatch in the numbers, it’s even money Niall beats any other member of The Wanted.
The bookies are offering odds of 10/1 that any of the potential match ups take place within a year while it’s 20/1 any member of either band are snapped scrapping with each other in public.
Alex Donohue of Ladbrokes said: “Despite Zayn laying down the gauntlet we fancy Max to make short work of him. As for his band mates, the not-so-hard Harry Styles looks the most likely to end up on the canvas if the bout ever went ahead.”
