The upcoming weekend offers boxing betting fans options on multiple world title fights on separate cards from the United States and Russia. Headlining the card from Oakland, California is the WBC Super Middleweight championship between Andre Ward and Chad Dawson, while Vitali Klitschko defends his WBC Heavyweight title against Manuel Charr.
Dawson (31-1) will make his debut at Super Middleweight this weekend as the +230 underdog against champ Ward (25-0). Both fighters are in the prime of their careers and are considered Top 10 pound-for-pound in the world. With a lot on the line this fight has the potential to be memorable.
Ward gets the nod as the -300 favorite but will likely have a tougher time against Dawson than the lines are currently showing. Bovada is also offering OVER/UNDER action on the Dawson vs. Ward fight; the number of total rounds is set at 11.5, and the lines are currently handicapped at -500 that the fight will go OVER that mark. If you think the fight will end before 11.5 rounds it will currently pay +300. Both fighters have seven decision results in their last eight fights.
On the same night in Moscow Klitschko (44-2) will be a big favorite over surprise title contender Charr. It’s sort of cloudy as to why Charr was given a title shot, but we do know that he will be a huge underdog on Saturday night. At +1400 the undefeated Charr is a tempting upset option, but if you decide to go with old faithful Klitschko he comes with a hefty -5000 price.
The OVER/UNDER action on the Klitschko vs. Charr fight is set at 6.5 rounds, with the UNDER bet handicapped at +110. The undefeated Charr has a good chin and the ability to move out of harm’s way, giving the -155 OVER option some real value.
