49-year-old IBF light heavyweight champion Bernard Hopkins is -200 favorite to win his unification bout with WBA counterpart Beibut Shumenov tonight at the DC Armory in Washington DC. Shumenov backers can get +175 on average. On the undercard, IBF welterweight champion Shawn Porter and WBO middleweight champion Peter Quillin are both expected to retain their belts.

Like Hopkins, Porter is a -200 to keep his title against former champ Paul Malignaggi, who is at +175. Quillin, on the other hand, is as high as -3300 to successfully defend against Lukas Konecny, who is anywhere from +750 to +1100. It pays to shop around. Also Quillin is running about -225 to win by early stoppage against Konecny, who has never been stopped in his whole career (most of which was at jr. middleweight).
