Today at 4:30 p.m. EST on Epix and EpixHD.com in the United States, as well as RTL in Germany and Sky Sports in the United Kingdom, world heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko returns to the ring for the first time since last July's disappointingly easy win over David Haye, facing long-ago cruiserweight champ Jean Marc Mormeck of France.

The odds, as we have discussed several times, are ridiculous. This fight being for the "world heavyweight championship" -- the real one -- is absurd.

Book Klitschko Mormeck
Bovada -5000 +1400
5Dimes -4000 +2000
SBG Global -4600 +1900

After two straight weekends of decent or better heavyweight fights (Klitschko vs Chisora and Povetkin vs Huck), here we are with more of this crap. But even worse than normal.

I guess if you have a lot of gumption and some disposable money, hell, take a flier on Mormeck. Maybe Klitschko rolls his ankle and can't walk and loses via injury TKO. Wladdy has come down with a lot of nagging injuries the last couple years. It's only a matter of time before one crops up in a fight, right? Right? No, probably not.

But still, if that happens, and you throw down $100, you can make a little change here. Not Floyd Mayweather Instagram betting slip money, but some money.

By the way, if all of this happens, by some ridiculous, hilarious miracle, and you actually bet money on Mormeck and win, please use Instagram to post your winning slip on Twitter and send it to us. I want to retweet all of them. If you don't HAVE a Twitter account, and all of this happens, I'm requiring you to sign up for one just for this.

Just for kicks, and because he's a terrific writer, go read this old Graham Houston article about the biggest heavyweight upsets. It's from the June 2001 edition of Boxing Monthly.
