Boxing Preview: Weekend Odds From Around The World

CarlFramptonThe boxing calendar is really beginning to come together, with a lot of high level boxing going on throughout the world. This Friday, February 26th, there’s a Super Middleweight bout from The Melbourne Pavilion in Victoria, Australia between Zac Dunn (19-0) and Rogerio Damasco (22-3-2). The event sees the 25 year old Dunn a massive -5500 favorite over the Brazilian Damasco, who is returning at +2200. Damasco is undefeated in Brazil, and has never won outside of his home country, and that trend is expected to continue in this one. The bout is for the vacant WBC International Silver title, and the 12 round bout does not have an over/under posted despite Dunn’s 15 KO’s in his 19 fights. Also on Friday at the Kibler Park Recreation Centre in Johannesburg, South Africa sees veteran Phillip Ndou (37-4) taking on Ntuthuko Memela (11-2-2) for the vacant IBF Continental title at welterweight. Ndou is best remembered for fighting Floyd Mayweather Jr way back in 2003, and he is now 38 years old. In August of 2015 he fought for the first time in two years, and he enters this bout a -550 favorite over Memela, who returns at +400. The last of Friday’s boxing odds comes to us from the Ceres Arena in Aarhus, Denmark as 43-year old veteran Lolenga Mock (32-14-1) takes on Jorge Silva of Portugal in a bout set to airo n TV2 Sport. Mock, who won a December fight after a two year layoff, is a big -850 favorite over Silva, who is returning at +520. The weekend’s big show is in Manchester as Scott Quigg and Carl Frampton do battle, but Saturday February 27th also sees boxing at London’s York Hall. The show is your typical British event at the venerable hall, as more than 20 fights are planned, most at the four and six round length. A pair of headliners are scheduled for 10 rounds, and the BBBofC Southern Area Welterweight title match is getting attention at the sport books. Titleholder Tamaku Mucha (11-0) makes his first title defense against Tommy Tear (11-0). Mucha comes in a strong -610 favorite over Tear, who is returning at +425.
