Super Middleweight Boxing Odds
The super middleweight division is one of the newest weight classes in boxing and was initially set up for those just shy of weighing 12st, meaning that they were too big to compete at middleweight, but not really big enough to challenge at light heavyweight. Eventual Mike Tyson conqueror James ‘Buster’ Douglas initially fought in the weight category, while James Toney, Chris Eubank and Joe Calzaghe have been the biggest forces in recent memory.
Super middleweight boxing odds have been extremely popular in recent years
Since the retirement of Calzaghe, the super middleweight division has been shy of a real standout star. This has helped make boxing betting slightly more profitable, as most fights have largely been extremely tough to call in advance. The strength in depth of the division even led to the emergence of the Super Six World Boxing Classic, a unique tournament to attempt to identify the best super middleweight currently in the boxing ranks.
Arthur Abraham, Jermain Taylor and Mikkel Kessler were among the biggest stars from the golden age of the super middleweights to begin the tournament, but it has been Britain’s Carl Froch and America’s former Olympic gold medal winner Andre Ward that have enjoyed the most success and are now preparing to meet in the final.
Host of markets help to make up the super middleweight boxing odds
Punters wanting to place a bet from within the super middleweight boxing odds can take advantage of a number of markets ahead of each specific fight. The obvious and most popular of these is which of the two fighters will secure victory, while there is also the option of selecting whether they will triumph by knockout or via the scorecards of the ringside judges.
