There's no doubt that Canelo Alvarez is the A side attraction here - it's his name that transforms this from a Showtime fight to a PPV fight. Yet despite that A status, Canelo is far from an overwhelming favorite tonight. This is a tough fight where the young superstar has a real chance of losing, and that's reflected in the fight odds.
Here's the line from Bovada:
Vegas Insider has it even closer at near even with Canelo at -165, Lara +135. Those are incredibly close odds for a boxing main event and show why so many people are calling this a 50/50 pick 'em fight.
The Abner Mares vs. Jonathan Oquendo fight that will lead in to Canelo vs. Lara is significantly more lopsided, with Mares the favorite at -1100, Oquendo at +650. Rounding out the PPV card, Mauricio Herrera is the favorite at -165 to Johan Perez's +135, and Francisco Vargas is at -155 vs. Juan Manuel Lopez at +125.
