With less than a week to go we've started to take note of the odds for the upcoming contest between Japan's Takahiro Ao (26-3-1, 12) and Juan Carlos Salgado (26-3-1, 16) and, as the records suggest, the bout is viewed as very even by the bookies.
Ao, a former 2-weight world champion, has been made the marginal favourite at 4/6 with Paddy Power to win the fight and take a huge step towards a Lightweight world title fight. Salgado, a former 2-time Super Featherweight world champion, is the under-dog but is priced very competitively at 11/8 with Bet365. The draw, for those interested, is available at 22/1 with Paddy Power.
Sadly the only odds on the bout are the "to win" odds at the moment, a real shame and disappointment given the interesting match up between the two fighters
