Las Vegas Boxing Odds: Julio Cesar Chavez Jr vs Sergio Gabriel Martinez
Thursday, September 13, 2012
The most anticipated matchup is the WBC Middleweight title fight between Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. and Sergio Gabriel Martinez, but the action continues with an IBF Cruiserweight battle between Troy Ross and Pablo Hernandez, a European Middleweight championship bout between Roberto Santos and Dominik Britsch, and a WBC Light Middleweight title fight between Josesito Lopez and Saul Alvarez.
Action on the Chavez vs. Martinez fight is already available at Bovada Sportsbook and it’s the challenger Martinez that’s currently a -200 favorite. If Chavez is able to defend his title he will pay out at +160, but an even more interesting bet might be the +200 option on the UNDER 9.5 rounds total. Chavez has a recent history of going the distance, but that option currently comes with a -300 price.
Ross will be an underdog to take Hernandez’s IBF Cruiserweight title mainly because he could not beat Steve Cunningham, the former champion that Hernandez has beaten twice. Ross, now 37 years old, will likely lay it all on the line in what is probably his last chance at a world title.
Santos and Britsch will be meeting for the second time to once again decide the EU Middleweight championship. The two fought to a draw last February, so a rematch was set up to put the controversy to bed.
Lopez will look to win his first world title but will be a heavy underdog to do so against the undefeated Alvarez. Lopez will need to repeat the performance he had against Victor Ortiz to have a chance to take the title, but if he does it will make for a big payday for anyone that opts for the upset bet.
