Over the past decade, Tom has carved out a niche as a trusted and well-known voice in the world of boxing betting. Currently host of his own podcast, The Boxing Betting Show, Tom is also a pundit on Puncher’s Chance, the boxing podcast of the bookmaker Pinnacle.
Tom brings to Online Betting a wealth of betting experience, both personally and professionally, with a view to educating and upskilling bettors as well as providing expert analysis and regular picks.
As a British resident - and a beneficiary of his country’s progressive gambling legislation - Tom has been betting on sports online since he was old enough to do so.
Two decades later, Tom has established a reputation for his insightful commentary and betting opinion. Now primarily a mainstay on two betting podcasts (The Boxing Betting Show and Pinnacle’s Puncher’s Chance), he has been the betting pundit for Matchroom Boxing on Before the Bell, and has written regular columns for both Boxing Monthly and Bad Left Hook. Tom is a voting member of the Transnational Boxing Rankings Board (TBRB).
Favorite bet of all time
Tom never hides the fact he likes the occasional draw bet, and landing the big one on the first Canelo vs Golovkin fight - with all the drama and controversy that surrounded both the decision and the fight itself - remains one of his personal highlights.
Most heart-breaking bet
The one that still stings most for Tom is his faith in David Haye in his first fight against Tony Bellew in March 2017. At -700 or more to win outright, Haye’s price was too slim to back outright, but bettors - Tom included - rushed to heavily back Haye to stop Bellew inside the distance, and particularly in the early rounds, of the so-called all-British grudge match.
Haye’s right Achilles ruptured suddenly in the sixth, and the rest is history, with Bellew fans holding anything up to +900 slips.
