MMA Oddsbreaker posted the Glory 58 opening odds Thursday.
Glory Middleweight champion Alex Pereira opened at -165 to retain his title against former champion Simon Marcus Friday night at Glory 58. Marcus was +125 to defeat the Brazilian bomber. Pereira holds a previous victory over Marcus, and scored a sensational one punch knockout over Yousri Belgaroui in his last fight. It’s no surprise the bookmakers tabbed him the favorite.
In the co-headline bout, top ranked heavyweight Benjamin “Mr. Gentleman” Adegbuyi opened as a big favorite over fifth rated Jahfarr Wilnis. The Romanian was tabbed at -400 to defeat Wilnis. Wilnis was +280 to beat Benny. Adegbuyi previously defeated Jahfarr Wilnis by split decision in a bout that could have gone either way.
Chicago homeboy Richard “Maximus” Abraham opened as a -215 favorite over Omari Boyd.
British featherweight Bailey Sugden was a -270 favorite to beat tough Uzbek Anvar Boynazarov.
For the Glory 58 Superfight Series main event, Junior Tafa was a whopping -705 to best Glory newcomer Haze “The Hooligan” Wilson.
