Mikey Garcia a heavy betting favorite

Despite the weight problems that cost him his WBO featherweight title, unbeaten Mikey Garcia (31-0, 26 KOs) remains a -600 favorite to defeat former WBO champion Juanma Lopez (33-2, 30 KOs) tonight in Dallas. Juanma backers can get +400. Only Lopez is eligible to win the belt tonight.

In the event that the oddsmaker is correct and Mikey prevails, the title will remain vacant. If Juanma is defeated, WBO President Paco Valcarcel has already announced that former champion Orlando “Siri” Salido and Orlando Cruz would fight for the vacant belt within 90 days.
