This coming weekend is a big one with boxing fans from around the world turning their attention to Nevada where their will be a number of fantastic match ups. One of those will see Chinese "Wildman" Ik Yang (19-1-0-1, 14) [杨连慧] battle against exciting Australian Leonardo Zappavigna (34-2, 24) in an IBF world title eliminator. On paper this is perhaps not the most eye opening bout on the card but it is a bout that has seemingly got a more 50-50 feel to it than any other on n the show, making it a great opportunity for gamblers, or those just wanting to place a small bet on a bout to make it even more interesting.
At the moment, just hours before the weigh in, Yang is the favourite, but only just. The Chinese fighter is priced at a very tasty looking 4/5 in certain UK bookies, whilst others have him at 4/6. The price is a great one for those thinking he'll win.
For those thinking Zappavigna will come out on top the Aussie battler is available at 11/8, though most have him priced at 6/5. Again the price is incredibly tasty given many other bouts on the card have a very prohibitive favourite.
Sadly we've not been able to find odds on the "Method of Victory" market though bet365 have got the bout set at an over/under of 9.5 rounds. The over has been priced at 8/15 whilst the under is 11/8, so those expecting a stoppage may find this market particularly interesting.
