Klitschko vs Mormeck Boxing Odds

A week after his brother Vitali his fight, Wladimir Klitschko defends his heavyweight titles Saturday against Jean-Marc Mormeck in a weekend of boxing betting that sees several huge underdogs.

One of those underdogs is Mormeck, the Frenchman who is 36-4 for his career and rides a three-fight win streak. He sits at +2000 at 5Dimes while the champion, who hasn’t lost since 2004, is -4000. That means a $100 bet on Mormeck pays $2,000 in profit.

The fight at the ESPIT arena in Dusseldorf, Germany, pits Mormeck’s bob-and-weave style against Dr. Steelhammer’s direct overhands. Mormeck has not fought since December of 2010 and will give away 30 pounds and seven inches of height to Klitschko.

It’s a mandatory defense of Klitschko’s IBF heavyweight belt and few give the challenger much of a chance.

Manuel Leyva is an even bigger underdog Friday night as he faces American Ed Paredes in Florida. Paredes has won six in a row and is favored by -7500 on the boxing moneyline, making Leyva a +3000 underdog.

Jarkko Jussila is a big -4500 favorite against Stanislavs Leonovs who checks in as a +1500 longshot.
