The proposed boxing match between Chris Brown and Soulja Boy has only gathered more interest in recent weeks after it was announced that two past champions – Mike Tyson and Floyd Mayweather Jr. – would be training each boxer, respectively.
Although there is still no indication that a fight is going to take place – and the added twist that both fighters must pass drug tests for an amateur bout on American soil (making Dubai an option) – the Las Vegas sportsbooks are adding further legitimacy to the speculation by creating a betting line like in the case of Floyd Mayweather vs. Conor McGregor.
UK bookmaker, Coral, have placed Brown as the perennial favorite, with odds of 1-7 of winning. Soulja Boy, meanwhile, is 4-1 to win.
“With Iron Mike in his corner and a reputation for getting into scuffles, Breezy is our hot favorite to win this battle of the hip-hop artists,” said Coral spokesperson, Nicola Mcgrady.
Stateside, Bovada has set the Las Vegas odds for the fight, and the company heavily favors the R&B singer as well. Brown is posted at -160, which means to win $100 USD, one would have to bet $160 USD. Conversely, Soulja Boy is is +125, which means you would win $125 USD off a $100 USD bet.
