Betting odds at 5Dimes have Lucas Matthysse as the (-350) favorite and Emmanuel Taylor as the (+260) underdog with the total rounds set at 8.5.
Hardcore boxing fans will be glad to see Lucas Matthysse back in action after a year and a half away from the sport due to an eye injury he suffered during a TKO loss to Viktor Postol back in October of 2015.
Matthysse will be stepping up a weight class to the welterweight division where there are many lucrative fights that can be made. But first, he must get past Emmanuel Taylor.
Taylor’s career was in jeopardy after suffering two straight defeats at the hands of Adrien Broner and Antonio Orozco. Since then, Taylor has bounced back with two KO wins in 2016.
Taylor does not use much evasive movement in the ring, which means this could be a very entertaining contest against a pressure fighter like Matthysse.
