Olympic odds boxing fans have steadily watched as the sport has entered a prolonged decline, but one place where the boxing action remains strong is in the Olympic odds action. The list of Olympic odds Olympic sports betting champs in the Olympic sports betting action reads like a “who’s who” of boxing greats. In fact, the Olympic odds competition is a great place to look to discover up-and-coming boxing talent and many Olympic odds champs go on to be world boxing champions as professionals.
Starting in the light weight division, over the past few decades there have been some fantastic boxers that have come out of the Olympic odds action. In 1984 Pernell Whitaker took the gold in the Olympic odds and went to dominate the weight class outside of the Olympic sports betting. The recently retired boxer maintained tremendous longevity and had a huge impact on boxing after his Olympic odds competition, boxing in several weight classes.
Then, in 1992 a fighter by the name of Oscar De La Hoya took the Olympic odds gold and then went on to become one of the great boxers of the past half-century after his Olympic odds success. Oscar went on to win world titles at several different weight classes, and then went on to become the best pound-for-pound fighter in the world for several years after the his Olympic odds success. No boxer has been more successfully promoted after Olympic odds success than De La Hoya.
Most recently, Amir Khan from the UK has entered the world boxing stage during the Olympic odds competition. Despite not winning the gold at Athens, the world took notice as he settled for silver in the Olympic sports betting. Khan has not been quite as impressive as some Olympic odds fans had hoped he would be in this pro career, but he’s still young and has much room to grow in the post Olympic odds boxing phase of his fighting career.
