The fight was Michael conlon v Tim Ibra on Saturday the 18th of march...I got in touch with William hill yesterday they said it may take up to several months for it to be compeleted....I don't know if anybody is in the same boat as me...I got in touch with IBAS so let's hope it's sorted soon.
I think this is absolutely disgraceful from William Hill, although I can't say I'm particularly surprised. As far as I am concerned, they have absolutely no right to do this if the fight is not under investigation by any governing body. I don't know how big the bet in question was (although I can't believe they would be behaving like this if it were a small bet), but if IBAS can't help or William Hill still won't pay, then you might have to consider taking WH to court (UK Small Claims Court), even though that may prove to be both time-consuming and potentially quite costly.
I really don't know why William Hill behave like this from time to time, but it does them absolutely no credit and I only hope anyone reading this thread will think twice before betting with them.
Thanks Trevrizen...would you believe it's only close to a thousand euros..I don't mean that as if it was for bigger I would understand...I was told that everybody's account who done this fight account was closed...there is no investigation I have looked into it and there just dragging there heels in...I have no idea what they think will happen or that il go away...it's a shambles
Have just watched a video of the fight on YouTube (although I don't bet on boxing, I'm a fan of it). Ibarra took a real beating in the third round and the referee was absolutely right to stop the fight when he did. How anyone can suspect foul play there is a complete mystery to me.
I wonder is anybody in the same boat as me..no surprise to hear William hill is like this...buried there head in the sand and just not answering the questions I have will only take by email no fone call...is there any more I can do??
Try to get an email from the sporting body confirming that the fight is not under investigation.Then email William Hill a copy of that.If they still ignore you,go the IBAS route,with that to back you up,or try the link from BMR first.
I have contacted IBAS already..I have the information when I say this to William hill they just ignore it...any idea how long IBAS take??
Sorry,no.If William Hill really do have no reason not to pay out,I'm guessing that they'll be forced to cave.They can't actually ignore IBAS,and IBAS would need some sort of reason to rule in William Hill's favour.
Wouldn't have thought William Hill would want much publicity for this one,unless they really do have a valid reason not to pay.
Yes, IBAS should at least be able to force William Hill to state what grounds, if any, they have for not paying up.
Any Idea of time frame for IBAS...they have no grounds for not paying out as others have I just don't understand that.
