Last Minute Worldwide Boxing Odds for this Weekend

boxing-glovesIt is a slow weekend on the Boxing calendar, however a handful of 12 round fights from around the world have popped up at the sport books in the last 24-48 hours. There are no really copetitive lines, and none of the fights feature over/under action. Lightweight 12 rounds – Espoon Metro Arena – Espoo, Finland Massimiliano Ballisai +1600 Edis Tatli -4800 The EBU European Lightweight title is on the linet this Friday, March 18th. Tatti is 26-1 overall and he has won three fights in a row since a loss to Richar Abril in September of 2014. This is Ballisai’s first tip outside of Italy, and this is his second attempt to capture the EBU belt. The card also features the WBC World Super Featherweight title fight in the women’s division between champion Eva Wahlstroem and challenger Dahiana Santana that may pop up at the sport books as well. Heavyweight 10 rounds – Circus – Bucharest, Romania Michael Sprott +1150 Christian Hammer -2450 Hammer is 18-4 overall, and he is looking to put together a second win in a row since dropping a February of 2015 fight to Tyson Fury. Prior to that, hammer had won 10 fights in arow, so he is 11-1 in his last twelve fights with his only loss being to Fury. That is not a bad resume to have in today’s heavyweight division. This fight is designed to get him another “W” as Sprott is a long in the tooth veteran who is 41 years old and is coming off three straight stoppage losses. Cruiserweight 12 rounds – MusikTeatret – Albertslund, Denmark Mirko Larghetti +600 Micki Nielsen -1200 Denmark’s undefeated (20-0) defends his WBC International Cruiserweigfht title for the first time against Italy’s Mirko Larghetti. Back in August of 2014, Larghetti lost a bid for Marco Huck’s WBO title by unanimous decision. Since then he has come back and won two fights in a row to move to 24-1 overall. Between the two men, Huck is really the only recognizable opponent, which might be wnough to give Larghetti “live dog” status. Minimumweight 12 rounds – Emperors Palace – Gauteng, South Africa Byron Rojas +1400 Hekkie Budler -3600 The WBA “Super World” title in the Minimumweight division is on the line as champion hekkie Butler (29-1) takes on the challenge of Byron Rojas. Rojas hails from Nicaragua and he has put together a solid winning streak since he dropped two fights in a row back in 2012. Butler is the number one ranked fighter in the weight class by the respected Transnational Boxing Rankings Board ( and he has been there for a long-time.
