Tomorrow's Mayweather vs Ortiz undercard is loaded with fights that could bring action, but the most notable of the three is also being looked at by oddsmakers as the biggest mismatch on the card.

WBC junior welterweight titlist Saul "Canelo" Alvarez is a massive favorite to retain in his bout against Alfonso Gomez, which won't be happening at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, but rather at Los Angeles' Staples Center.

This makes Alvarez (37-0-1, 27 KO) almost useless to bet on, since you have to put down so much to get any return at all. Gomez (23-4-2, 12 KO) is not being given any respect as his opponent, by just about anyone. We all agree he's tough and will put on a game performance, but that's about it. Alvarez deserves the odds to be this big, honestly, as young as he is. Gomez is just not, on paper, a legitimate threat to him.
