Mayweather Jr. vs. Marquez Best Fight Odds

Mayweather Jr. vs. Marquez best fight odds could be found at Bookmaker.com with Floyd Mayweather Jr. listed a -410, compared to the -450 and up we were seeing a lot of at other online sportsbooks

Wanna bet on Juan Manuel Marquez?  He'll pay $320 for every $100 bet with the upset.

The OVER/UNDER was 11 ½ rounds.

Judging by the long odds in Vegas' sportsbooks, most people can't imagine how the smaller Mexican star can compete with the former pound-for-pound king. Yet the 36-year-old Marquez is a tenacious competitor even by his sport's lofty standards, with a stubborn streak as long as Mayweather's property line.

Marquez apparently didn't hesitate to stay in the bout even when Mayweather informed him Friday morning he wouldn't make the 144-pound catch weight limit.

After impressive victories over Juan Diaz and Joel Casamayor in the past year, Marquez likely would be a favorite against any fighter below 140 pounds except Manny Pacquiao. Instead, he'll get $2 million - and another big chunk of change after the weight brouhaha - to take a shot at Mayweather.

"My style is different," Marquez said. "I try not to get hit. ... I can use his fight with (Jose Luis) Castillo to see what to do. I will show more intelligence. (Castillo) showed pressure, pressure."

Marquez's counterpunching style could be tough to use against Mayweather, the best defensive fighter of his generation. If Mayweather can dodge and duck punches as he usually does while occasionally stinging Marquez, he could control the bout and perhaps even hurt Marquez enough for a stoppage.

Although Mayweather insists he never watches tapes of his opponents "because I don't have to," Roger Mayweather is a boxing encyclopedia who sees every big fight and has loud opinions about everybody who doesn't measure up to his nephew.

"There's a blueprint on how to beat Marquez," Mayweather Jr. said. "There's not a blueprint on how to beat me."

Most of the money was going Mayweather Jr's way despite the inflated line.
