Klitschko vs Chisora Odds

| 06.12.2010

Wladimir Klitschko is a worthy 1/12 favourite in the boxing betting odds to make another successful defence of his IBF and WBO heavyweight titles when taking on British challenger Dereck Chisora in Germany.

Klitschko has already defended his heavyweight gold on nine occasions and overall has won 55 of his 58 career bouts.

This gives him a mammoth advantage over Chisora in the experience stakes, with the British and Commonwealth champion still a relative novice in comparison with just 15 professional fights.

Meanwhile, Klitschko also has the edge in other key areas, including height, reach and the fact that he has fought a much higher calibre of opponent during his career.

Chisora has only challenged domestic opponents for the vast number of his professional fights and is yet to step into the ring for any contest to go further than nine rounds.

This could bring questions about his stamina into play and the constant barrage of powerful Klitschko jabs are only likely to wear him out further.

Additionally, Chisora, who is 6/1 in the boxing betting odds, has run into problems in his preparation in terms of getting suitable sparring partners to his base in Scotland.

All these factors do not only suggest that Klitschko will win the fight, but also that it end via stoppage rather than on points.

The Ukrainian has collected 52 of his 55 victories by knockout and there is every chance that this vastly impressive record will continue.

Klitschko vs Chisora odds are 2/7 that the defending champion will win by knockout and trying to discover which round the stoppage will occur in may provide the best value in the betting market.

All of Klitschko’s last five fights have made it to at least the seventh round as the 34-year-old tends to prefer to methodically break down his opponents.

It is 3/1 that Klitschko wins at any point between round seven and round nine, while the 9/2 could prove profitable that he wins in any of the last three rounds.

A £10 bet on Klitschko beating Chisora in the opening three rounds could lead to a return of £45. New Ladbrokes customers can sign up here for a free £10 bet.
