Malik Scott a slight favorite to defeat Dereck Chisora in heavyweight showdown

By Karl Freitag

At the beginning of the week, Saturday’s ten round showdown between Malik Scott and Dereck Chisora in London was a pick ’em fight. Since then, Scott has inched ahead as a narrow favorite. Bet365.com now has Malik at -138 while Chisora backers can get +110.

Both fighters were amicable at Thursday’s press conference and there was no reprise of their profanity laced teleconference that spiraled out of control in the lead up to the fight. Both looked to be in tremendous shape.
