Earlier today we noticed that Bet365.com had opened up a market on today's WBA female Flyweight title contest from Germany. The bout, which pits unbeaten 2-division world champion Naoko Fujioka (12-0, 6) up against German superstar Susi Kentikian (33-2-0-1, 17), is one of the most intriguing female bouts in history and has excited us since it was first mentioned as being in talks.
Despite being a true 50-50 on paper the bookies have sided with the younger Kentikian who has been priced 4/9 to win the fight leaving Fujioka at 13/8 as the under-dog.
We suspect that those odds have been decided by the fact that Kentikian is at home in Germany and the fact that Fujioka is 39 years old. Had the fight been in Japan however we suspect Fujioka would have been the favourite.
For fans who are interested in giving female boxing a shot we advise that this is the perfect starting point and the fight will be a very special one with two of the most talented female fighters on the planet and it's great that bet365 have got a market on the fight adding to the interest.
