Polish Boxing Odds – A pair of cruiserweight boxing matches in Poland on Saturday are getting attention at the sportsbooks and here is why you should care.
Check out our odds reviews for the World Boxing Super Series Cruiserweight Semi-Finals at Usyk vs Briedis and Gassiev vs Dorticos, Those fights saw Oleksandr Usyk and Murat Gassiev advance to the finals in a bout that will leave the winner with the four major world titles in the 200 pound cruiserweight division. Usyk vs Gasiev is scheduled for MAy 11th in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia. The level of the tournament has been extremely high and the exotic location for the finals hopefully comes with big money attached. These are perhaps the headiest times ever in the cruiserweight division.
The tournament winner will have come through a fierce eight man field that had most of the top rated talent in the weight class at the start. One of those fighters was Krysztof Wlodarczyk, who is fighting Saturday. Wlodarczyk fell to 53-4-1 after being stopped by tournament finalist Murat Gassiev, and this is his bounce back fight. It is unlikely that the matchmakers made a mistake in this one as he is a masive favorite fighting Adam Gadajew. Gadajew started his career off 5-12 overall and he had a winning streak against weak competition that allowed him to improve his record. He has gone 1-2 in his last three fights however againststronger opposition. Wlodarczyk is a former world champion who has been fighting at an elite level for a long time, so everything about Gadajew’s record says he is not going to cut it in this one. The odds makers agree.
One of the top 10 cruiserweights in the world who did NOT take part in the WBSS elimination tournament is Krzysztof Glowacki, who faces Manroy Sadiki this Saturday.
Glowacki is a former WBO world champion who enters Saturday’s fight at 28-1. In his lone loss, he dropped his world title to Oleksandr Usyk, who is in the WBSS tournament finals as the number one seed. Usyk is not a sure bet to get by the rugged Murat Gassiev, but you can rest assured that a match with the winner is what Glowacki has in mind. Glowacki was 26-0 when he fought Usyk in Gdansk, on his home turf and lost via unanimous decision.
Sadiki comes to the fight from the DR of Congo and he has a 14-1-1 overall record. Like the case with Gadajew, the matchmakers were looking for an opponent to get their fighter ring time. With just 6 knock outs to his credit, Sadiki is going to look to use ringcraft to hold off Glowacki.
The World Boxing Super Series will deliver a unified world champion in the weight class and that brings a lot of clarity. Whoever emerges from that tournament will have a big target on his back. Glowacki has a better case for a title shot, he is just looking to keep winning in this one. If the match with the champion does not come together for Glowacki, he may find himself matched against Wlodarczyk in another “stay busy” fight later this year. Below are the odds as they stand today.
