This coming weekend is a big one for boxing with a number of high profile Heavyweight bouts in the West. Those Heavyweight bouts however aren't the only bouts of note and a number of British bookmakers have strangely included the upcoming Japanese 140lb title fight in their available betting markets.
The bout in questions sees unbeaten champion Hiroki Okada (10-0, 8) [岡田 博喜] defending his title against interim champion Masanobu Nakazawa (18-1-1, 7) [中澤 将信].
Unsurprisingly the bookies have favoured the champion and have him priced around 1/7 to retain his title whilst Nakazawa is widely available at 4/1, suggesting that he id a clear under-dog.
For those interested in the draw that's priced at 22/1.
Okada returns with intent to reclaim unified throne! (Preview)
