Klitschko Heavy Favorite in Tony Thompson Rematch

Published on June 9th, 2012 2:26 am EST
On July 7th, Wladimir Klitschko and Tony Thompson will be having a rematch of their 2008 tilt.

The fight, which is set to take place at Stade De Suisse in Berne, Switzerland, will be for Klitschko's Heavyweight title. Tony Thompson has earned himself a shot at the title, and Klitschko will be doing his best to defend his belt once again.

Klitschko, who sports a 57-3 record, is currently listed as a -5000 favorite to win, despite the fact that Thompson actually took a couple of rounds off the champion in their first matchup.

Klitschko being a -5000 favorite means that a $5,000 bet would be needed to win just $100 back.

In other words - Klitschko is a HUGE favorite.

Tony Thompson, on the other hand, is currently listed as a +1400 underdog. This means that a successful $100 bet on Thompson would yield a total profit of $1400.


Oddsmakers aren't giving Thompson much of a chance to win against Klitschko - what do you think?
