Klitschko vs Wach Weigh-In Video; Klitschko Big Favorite

IBF, WBA, WBO, IBO and “The Ring Magazine” World Heavyweight Champion Wladimir Klitschko and his polish contender Mariusz Wach stepped on the scales today.

Wladimir Klitschko: 112.0 kilograms vs Mariusz Wach: 113.8 kilograms
Rakhim Chakhkiev: 91,0 kg vs Andres Taylor: 91,0 kg

The two giants will face off tomorrow at sold out o2 World Hamburg, Germany. The fight will be shown live on RTL in Germany. EPIX will show the fight in the US at 4:30 p.m. ET / 1:30 p.m. PT.

WLADIMIR KLITSCHKO looks set to destroy Poland’s Mariusz Wach when the pair go head-to-head in the ring on Saturday night, according to betting on Betfair. Odds of 1-10 suggest that the giant Ukrainian will successfully retain his heavyweight titles at the O2 Arena in Hamburg, Germany.

Punters give Klitschko’s relatively unknown opponent little chance of causing an upset. Despite boasting an unbeaten record, the 32-year-old Pole is a 10-1 chance for victory and is considered as little more than cannon fodder for his established opponent.

Klitschko is a 1-4 shot to take the bout by knockout, while he can be backed at 11-2 to win the fight by judges’ decision. Wach on the other hand is a 15-1 long shot to triumph by KO, while he is out at 29-1 to win the bout by judges’ decision.

Betfair’s Alex Bake said: “This goes to show how dominant the Klitschko brothers are in the heavyweight division. Our customers see this match-up as little more than a training exercise for Wladimir, and they fully expect him to come out on top.”

Wladimir Klitschko v Mariusz Wach – Betfair bet: 1-10 Wladimir Klitschko, 10-1 Mariusz Wach, 49-1 the draw

Method of victory – Betfair bet: 1-4 Klitschko KO, 11-2 Klitschko decision, 15-1 Wach KO, 29-1 Wach decision
