I hear ya.

But thats betting on an outright. Betting on 1/4 favourites in a 2 horse race is almost always foolish with some exceptions.

There are some decent betting options.

2/1 for Floyd via ko/tko is the best bet I think

Andy for the KO/TKO he'll be getting 2/1 and with Floyds unexpected weight jump it seems like a sound bet. If i didn't love Marquez's style i'd be all over it.

More doubt with Klitschko IMO.

4/6 the fight going the distance is the most enticing for me.

I'm not seeing this KO unless Marquez gets really desperate. He wouldn't even have KO'd Hatton until he got desperate.

And if you look at Marquez's history against counterpunchers, when he faced Chris John, he didn't exactly go all out to make sure he won.

Realistically,is Marquez attacking and changing his style the only chance he'll have of victory.

He'll have to try come fwd and keep Floyd under pressure. If he fights in his normal stlye i give him no chance

I think Floyd will be out to prove a point to the world here though.

if Floyd goes out and does a job on Marquez and stops him, he'll use that as a slight on Manny Pacquiao. You know what he's like......... "I laid the blue print on how to beat Hatton" "Oscar was Shot"...... This will be "I knocked out the man that beat pacquiao twice"

Floyd will be out for a stoppge here IMO and will probably get it, especially considering the new size difference

Don't expect too much. He'll be more aggressive than he was against Pacquiao, say, but he won't morph into a pressure fighter overnight. It will still be a tactical fight IMO, with Marquez trying to use any possible speed advantage.

Your right,I'm not expecting miricles but i do think he'll need to mix it up.

For all the stick its been getting,its quite an intrigueing bout really. Just hope it aint as one sided as we all secretly fear its going to be

Fraction is just the number on the right is the stake, the number on the left is the winnings.

So 2/1 = 100$ wins 200$.

So that would be like 200 in American or 3.

I havn't, I'm with you there isn't enough value and I'm not much of an over/under or method of victory better.

I might do a John/Mayweather double if anything.
