Klitschko vs Chisora Odds: WBC Heavyweight Title in Germany

by Bovada Sportsbook
One of the safest bets in the sport of boxing will be defending his WBC Heavyweight title this weekend and Bovada Sportsbook is the place to get your boxing odds on the big fight. Vitali Klitschko makes his return to the ring following a 10th-round TKO over Tomasz Adamek last September, and this time he’s defending against the talented Dereck Chisora.
Klitschko has been the big stud of boxing betting over the last nine years, winning 11 straight fights and defending his title seven straight times. Action on a champion this dominant doesn’t come at a cheap price, and against Chisora this weekend oddsmakers at Bovada Sportsbook have him handicapped as a -1400 favorite.
As usual with Klitschko it comes down to whether or not you think time has caught up with him, and considering his last performance only a few months ago there’s little reason to think it has.
Only nine months ago Chisora looked like he was the future of the Heavyweight division, holding a 14-0 record and the BBBofC Heavyweight title. But two decision losses in late 2011 have left him 1-2 in his last three fights; somehow, though, he finds himself in a WBC title fight against Klitschko. The current Bovada Sportsbook upset line on Chisora is at +750.
Despite the ability to fight at an aggressive pace, and power in both hands, Chisora stands only six feet tall. Against Klitschko’s jab it’s tough to believe that a man of that height will be able to get close enough to the champ to have an impact on how the bout will play out.
But Chisora most certainly has a puncher’s chance, and at +750 that chance might be worth some meager action for a potential big payday.
