Amir Khan goes head to head with Carlos Molina this weekend in Los Angeles and the boxer from Bolton has already labelled this one as a make or break fight in his career.
Khan of course burst onto the scene in the Olympics eight-years-ago and started his professional career extremely well. However, he has fallen off the pace in the last year or so and needs a big performance on Saturday night.
He has now lost his last two fights and was knocked down three times in his encounter with Danny Garcia earlier in the year. Only a win will do here now to show that he is back in the world of boxing and ready to fight for the big titles and become one of the best pound-for-pound fighters around.
It is no surprise that Khan is the big favourite with the bookmakers to claim a victory on Saturday evening as on his day, he can be as good as anyone. A bet on a win for the Brit will give you odds of 1/12 at Sportingbet.
There is big pressure on 26-year-old, who is entering a vital stage of his boxing career. He seems to be determined to win here and in great shape, both mentally and physically.
Molina is not just here for a pay-day though. He knows that Khan can be beaten and that he can send shockwaves around the boxing world this weekend.
The Mexican said that taking this fight was a ‘no brainer’ and he seems ready to upset the odds. Although he has not fought anyone of Khan’s talent before, Molina does have a great record and is unbeaten in 17 professional fights.
For that reason, he might be quite a popular bet, especially as he is out at 17/2 with Paddy Power. It would of course be the best victory of his career and Molina knows just what a huge effort it will take to beat the two-time world champion – but he is sure to be relishing the opportunity.
Betting on the Method of Victory might give you some good value for this fight and Khan knocking his opponent out inside the twelve rounds is currently at 4/11 with Blue Square.
Molina’s chances of winning through the same method are rated at 12/1 with Stan James.
What we think is the best way to make some money off the bookies for this one though is by heading into the Round Betting market and we like the look of Khan knocking Molina out in the fifth round. This happening has odds of 10/1 with 888sport.
One thing that is for sure, this fight look guaranteed to entertain and will be watched all over the world.
