Betting odds for Adonis Stevenson vs Badou Jack on Saturday, May 19th at the Air Canada Centre in Toronto, Canada.
Current betting odds at Bovada have Adonis Stevenson as a (-175) favorite with Badou Jack coming in as a (+125) underdog.
Oddsmakers are giving Badou Jack a serious chance as Adonis Stevenson has been marred by inactivity throughout much of his tenure as WBC light-heavyweight champ. Stevenson has only defended his title twice in the last two years and he is already 40 years old. So, ring rust could certainly play a factor in this fight.
What Badou Jack has to be wary of is the power of Adonis Stevenson. Jack was stopped in the first round after being caught cold by Derek Edwards (a fighter Stevenson easily KO'd). Edwards is not known as a heavy puncher so the chin of Badou Jack is certainly a question mark.
Another factor to consider in this fight is that Stevenson is a southpaw, and Badou Jack has struggled against southpaw boxers having fought to a draw with both Degale and Bute (the latter of which was reversed to a DQ win for Jack after Bute failed a post-fight drug test).
This fight will be taking place in Toronto, Canada which is a departure from Stevenson's regular title defenses in his hometown of Montreal (where he has a big fanbase). Though Stevenson should still be considered the "A-side" as he is the champion defending his title in his home country.
