There will be fierce clashes in the boxing ring with lots of hopes for the fighters to step up and make a world title run in the junior lightweight division. Online sportsbooks in United States expect the boxing scene to explode at Mandalay Bay one of the premier entertainment venues in Las Vegas, when Farmer and Ogawa fight for the vacant IBF belt, Smith and Vargas look to secure a world title shot next, and Alvarado seeks to continue his three-fight winning streak when he meets with Shafikov. We will display the Las Vegas boxing odds for this weekend and help you pick the boxers with the highest calibre.
Tevin Farmer vs Kenichi Ogawa
After Gervonta Davis missed his weight and was stripped of the IBF super-featherweight title, the contender Tevin Farmer has been squared away and he is looking now to take on Kenichi Ogawa for the vacant IBF title. Farmer (25-4-1, 5 KOs), 27, of Philadelphia, and Ogawa (22-1, 17 KOs), 29, of Japan, are due to square off on 9 Dec.
Farmer has won 18 fights in a row since suffering eight-round knockout in 2012 against Jose Pedraza, while for Ogawa this will be his first fight outside of Japan. Although Ogawa is a good puncher and a tough guy, we have more confidence in Tevin. However it will not be a walkover fight. At Betsupremacy Sportsbook the Las Vegas boxing odds for Tevin are 1.045, while for Ogawa they are 7.94.

The Mexican known as “El Bandito” is looking to secure a world title shot, after losing his WBC title at 130lbs. Francisco Vargas brings aggression and action to the ring. He is scheduled to fight Smith, and we believe that he will come out as a true winner.
Vargas opponent the 32 year-old two-weight British champion will have his first fight in Las Vegas. Smith boxed previously in Monaco and Germany, but this is the biggest stage of all for him. He underwent two world title defeats, which have been at the hands of two of the best in the division, Jose Pedraza (WBC) and Jason Sosa (WBA). His Las Vegas showdown is a must-win fight to receive a third shot at one of world super-featherweight champions. However his odds are 3.17, while for the expected winner Vargas the odds are 1.31.
Denis Shafikov to Beat Rene Alvarado?
The highly competitive Shafikov-Alvarado fight has excellent value for boxing fans. Online sportsbook sites expect that this could very well be the best fight of the night. Shafikov (38-3-1, 20 KOs), has come up short each time he has boxed for a lightweight world title, so he decided to move down in weight to junior lightweight. His trainer Abel Sanchez who also trains the champion Gennady Golovkin is confident in the victory for his fighter. The opponent Rene Alvarado (27-8, 19 KOs), of Nicaragua, has won three fights in a row and he is expecting to continue his winning streak.
If you wish to make a safe wager then we recommend to go with Shafikov. His odds at Betsupremacy Sportsbook are 1.084, while the odds for his opponent are 6.46.
