There is a lightweight boxing fight coming up at Staples Center in LA.  Bet on it! On April 12th, Vasyl "Hi-Tech" Lomachenko will step into the ring at the Staples Center in Los Angeles to take on Anthony Crolla.

Lomachenko, who is 31 years of age, will be a massive favourite to win on that night. Lomachenko is considered the best Lightweight in the world by a long way, and Crolla isn't considered to be anything close to "Hi-Tech".

Lomachenko's lone blemish on his record was a split decision loss in March of 2014. That, however, was just his second professional fight, and he is a much different fighter now.

Anthony Crolla has much more mileage on him, as he has a career record of 34-6-3, and he is currently considered the #3 Lightweight in the world.

Crolla earned his shot with consecutive victories over the likes of Daud Yordan, Edson Ramirez and Ricky Burns. While Crolla doesn't have much of a name in North America, he is a fairly popular fighter in the United Kingdom.


Let's take a look at the odds for this fight, courtesy of Bet365:

Odds Subject to Change

Vasyl Lomachenko, -10000
Anthony Crolla, +1800

According to these odds, you would need to bet $10,000 on Lomachenko in order to have a chance of winning $100 back.

On the other hand, a successful $100 wager on Crolla would yield a total profit of $1,800.

There is no sporting outcome in the world that merits a $10,000 wager to win $100 back. Anything can happen, especially in the world of combat sports. Betting on those odds would be insane.

There is no doubt, however, that Lomachenko is the clear, odds-on favourite to win this fight. It should be another magical performance from "Hi-Tech".
