Tomorrow fight fans will get the chance to see the first world title bout to be held in Asia this year. That bout will see WBC Minimumweight champion Wanheng Menayothin (43-0, 17) [วันเฮง ไก่ย่างห้าดาวยิม] defending his title against unbeaten Filipino slugger Melvin Jerusalem (11-0, 7) in a battle of unbeatens.
The bout will also be the first bout in Asia opening to betting fans in the West, with several bookies carrying the fight.
Sadly whilst a couple of bookies are carrying the bout they are only carrying the "To Win" market.
At the moment Wanheng is the clear betting favourite with odds of 2/9 to win. The odds suggest the veteran has had money go on his over night, as he was 3/10 just a few days ago, but some are giving Jerusalem a chance. The Filipino youngster can be backed an 41/10, very tasty odds for those interested in the upset.
For those who see this as an even fight, the draw is priced at 20/1.
Wanheng and Jerusalem battle for WBC title!
