This coming weekend is a busy one for fight fans with numerous fights taking place around the globe. One of those fights, set to take place in Mexico, will see former world champion Jhonny Gonzalez (61-10, 51) battle little known Japanese fighter Hirotsugu Yamamoto (19-12-2, 3) [山元浩嗣].
Unsurprisingly the bookies have this pegged as a clear mismatch with the Japanese visitor priced at 16/1 as the under-dog. Given that this is a massive step up in class for the Japanese warrior it is no surprise that he was priced as the under-dog and it's fair to assume few have given him much of a chance against the big punching Gonzalez.
If you'd rather put money on the former champion he is 1/50 to win the bout, suggesting the bout is a foregone conclusion in his favour. If he wins, as expected, this would be a 4th successive win for the popular puncher following a 2015 upset loss to Jonathan Oquendo, in a bout that continues to leave some questions over how much Gonzalez really has left.
For fight fans fancying the unlikely draw, that's priced at 33/1.
Sadly this bout currently has no other markets available on it, just the "To Win" market.
