It's a fight that we view as competitive and a great clash of styles but the bookies don't see things the same as we do and, with just over a week to the fight, they have made Japan's Tomoki Kameda a huge betting favourite.
At the moment Tomoki is priced between 1/12 and 1/14. For our American fans this makes the Japanese fighter a favourite priced between -1200 and -1400, odds similar to what you find in a typically Floyd Mayweather fight.
On the other hand Pungluang is best priced at 13/2 whilst the other price for the Thai is 6/1. This makes him a +650 to a +600 under-dog, an unbelievable price in all honesty.
The one reason we can think for these lop sided odds is the fact that Pungluang has been having licensing issues with the Nevada State Athletic Commission but we really can't understand how those issues have made the odds this wide and would suggest the bookies have perhaps made a mistake. With that in mind we suspect the odds will close somewhat by fight night and things will be closer on the weekend of the fight.
