Default Lewis Klitchko O/U 8

I'd like to get your opinions on this O/U. Seems VERY high to me IMO.

Unless Vitali has improved dramatically, I don't seem him going beyond 4 or 5 max vs. Lewis.

Thoughts?

Love the under. I believe line shifted from 8.5.

Don't think Klitsches have been tested. Wouldn't pick a side because Lewis is inactive and not getting younger, plus he's been upset before. However, he must have had a great camp to have taken a marquee fight on a few weeks' notice. It's almost nonsensical. You can go around and around...

What we do know is that two very large men who hit very, very hard are going in there and the public wants to see one of them say "Timber." I think Vitali will be manhandled and beaten from post to post. KO in under 5.

Think the only bets worth taking here are (lines from 5dimes):
Under 8.5 -160
Lewis wins inside distance -190

Laying -470 on Lewis is crazy IMO. There is a chance of an upset, although I think it's probably slim. Can't jusify chomping down on this much chalk.

Best store I found for U 8.5 is Interchamps : -135.

Looks like quite a bargain.

Interchamps now 8.5 -180. Price for the U is going up at most stores.

Over 8- is now +140 @ IC and 5D.

I'm seeing total rnds going down pretty quick. Canbet is now 7 -105 for the under.

If you like the under lockin now.

I think this fight will end around 9 or 10 to be honest. But, the weigh in makes the under look appealing. I wouldnt bet it, but if you put a gun 2 my head, I pick RD 9 or 10 stoppage.

I just don't see it going that far.

Klitchko has only been the distance once. Yes, he's gone to 10 in 5 out of his last 6 fights - but they were against scrubs. With the exception of Byrd, VT hasn't fought anyone worth a damn.

Lewis is heavy. I have to think Lewis will press the action early to keep VT from getting any sort of rhythm. If Lewis keeps the jab in VT's face, he's gonna wilt. VT can counter punch ok, and he does have a hammer for a right hand. If LL get's sloppy, VT can drop him.

Personally, I think one of em is gonna get hit with a bomb relatively early. It certainly is a more intriguing matchup than LL/Johnson.

Take Vit the clit to win early.

Look at Lewis-he is heavier now than what he was was when being kayoed by Hashim Rahman.
Needless to say,Boxing is THE most unpredicable of things,BUT Lennox hasnīt taken Vitaly serioursly-thatīs a given.Look at Lennox-he is FAT.

Now,Vitaly has punching power-especially early on.Thatīs pure fact.He is slow and he is robotic-and he is still a class above the Hashim Rahman that kayoed Lennox in South Africa.

I love Lennox.He is the best of HIS generation-no doubt.Still,when heīs not taking his opponents seriously-he is ALWAYS in danger of defeat.Look,the MAN is 37 years old.Forget Foreman-this IS a young mans game.Add the age and the comleteness(?)that Lennox felt after destroying the Tyson myth-and youīll end up with a great opportunity to earn decent CASH here.

It ainīt the Lennox that used to be.It is the Lennox that fought Rahman in the first meeting.Take Vit early-and earn some money!!!

(I might be WAY wrong with ALL of the above.This is just ONE fight fans view regarding this fight.)

I think it may be that LL didn't take JOHNSON seriously. I wonder how fat he was 2 weeks ago....

"I wish we had HBO. "

This is a $49.95 PPV fight that HBO is showing free. Gotta love that!
