Hong Kong's exciting Rex Tso (13-0, 8) has been priced as a massive favourite for his fight this coming Saturday in Macao. The unbeaten Tso, who will be fighting Indonesian John Bajawa (12-6, 6), is in fact such a big favourite that we imagine many will be avoiding the bout altogether.
Tso has been priced at a staggering 1/80 by online firm Paddy Power and whilst very few would bet against him, those odds make it frankly impossible to bet on him. Especially considering he was dropped twice in his last fight, a decision victory over Ratchasak Kokietgym. Bajawa's chances have been totally written off by the bookies who have him priced at 16/1. Whilst those odds make sense given that Bajawa has lost 3 of his last 4 bouts he is a potential banana skin for Tso who hasn't had the greatest preparation for the bout.
It's believed that if Tso wins here he may be moved into a world title bout by the end of the year with a bout against Kohei Kono having been mentioned for a possible Macau undercard.
