If you’re familiar with the sport of golf, then you should know all about the feud going on between Brooks Koepka and Bryson DeChambeau. Simply put: the two golfers don’t like each other. Whether it’s because of their clashing personalities or how they play the sport, there’s no pulling back punches whenever they talk about each other. However, has it gotten to the point where they’ll need to settle things in a boxing ring?
The rivalry took a turn this week when a leaked video was released showing Koepka being visibly annoyed by DeChambeau walking in the background of his interview video. The fact that the mere sight of his rival could elicit such a reaction from Koepka shows how much he despises DeChambeau.
Well, that video gave BetOnline a reason to publish odds on a potential celebrity charity boxing match between Koekpa and DeChambeau. After all, that’s been the method that athletes and celebrities have been settling their beef as of late. Whether it’s been the Paul Brothers and all the feuds they’ve started or the upcoming bout between Aaron Carter and Lamar Odom, there hasn’t been a shortage of celebrity boxing competition from the last several years. Now, BetOnline is saying that a possible Koepka-DeChambeau clash could happen at +3300 odds.
It’s definitely a bit of a longshot, but the possibility is there. Depending on how far this feud goes, it may get to the point where they feel like they can only settle it in a boxing ring. So, what would happen if Koepka and DeChambeau want to get physical to squash their beef? BetOnline has odds on that too.
Celebrity Charity Boxing Odds: Brooks Koepka vs Bryson DeChambeau
Odds via BetOnline as of Wednesday, June 2
- Koepka (-180) vs DeChambeau (+140)
At -180 odds, Koepka is favored to win the potential boxing bout between him and DeChambeau. It’s a bit of a surprise considering that DeChambeau is the bigger of the two. However, it’s clear how much Koepka dislikes his rival and it’s possible that he’s imagined punching him in the face before. If that dream could become a reality, there’s no doubt that Koepka might use it as an incentive to train even harder in the event of a potential fight. Either way, you can bet that golf fans would love to see how the four-time major winner would fair between the ropes.
On the other hand, it’s a bit surprising to see DeChambeau as the underdog. Obviously, boxing isn’t always about who the bigger man is. But it’s hard to ignore that he does have a physical advantage over his rival in the event of a combat sport. According to their PGA profiles, DeChambeau is one inch taller (6-foot-1) and 30 pounds heavier (235 lbs) than Koepka. After all, a big thing about the 2020 U.S. Open winner is that he’s been adding muscle over the past few years. Throwing DeChambeau in a boxing ring would showcase whether or not his added mass will finally pay off.
At the same time, it’s probably unlikely that we’ll see a boxing match any time soon. The two rivals are still competing at the highest level in golf and a potential bout might force them to take time off depending on how dedicated they are and how an actual fight would go. Still, there’s no denying that a charity match between the two would be for a good cause and to add some much-needed excitement into the world of golf.
