New World No.1 Luke Humphries faces off against teenage sensation Luke Littler on Wednesday evening in the Paddy Power World Darts Championship at Ally Pally.

The opportunity to become world champion is up for grabs, as well as the Ballon d’Art trophy being on the line for the player who hits the most 180s.

If you’ve tuned in for the tournament, you’ll be well aware that we’re hoping to raise a boat load of cash for Prostate Cancer UK.


    Paddy Power are donating £1,000 for every single 180 and the tally stands at £878,00 raised ahead of Wednesday night’s final.

    Humphries has his eyes set on becoming world champion, however, he’s also got the Ballon d’Art and helping raise funds for charity in the back of his mind.


    He told Paddy Power News: “It would be great to finish with the most 180s and pick up the Ballon d’Art trophy.

    “To be able to put a hefty amount towards Prostate Cancer UK would be amazing.

    “I want loads more 180s in the final and I want to win the trophy, however, becoming world champion is in my mind first.”

    Paddy Power traders have been putting on specials throughout the tournament and punters won during Humphries’ dominating 6-0 win against Scott Williams on Tuesday, with many backing the World No.1 to have the most 180s.

    And Humphries is happy to help as long as his fine form continues: “If I’m winning, they’re winning!”

    Humphries faces off against fan favourite Littler and the Ally Pally crowd will be behind the 16-year-old.

    The loser is guaranteed £200,000 on Wednesday, while the winner will scoop the £500,000 prize pot for becoming world champion.

    While Littler is the talk of the town, Humphries is ready to put on a show to prove he’s the best in the world.

    He added: “I’ve saved the best until last but I’m hoping I’ve got more left for the final. I’m really looking forward to the prospect of facing Littler.

    “My last two performances have been clinical and I’ve only lost one set over long distances. I don’t think that’ll be the case in the final and it might be tighter but I’m looking forward to it.

    “If I play better than I did in the semi-final then there’s only one outcome but it’s a champion and it could be edgy for both of us. It’s all to play for.”
