Saturday’s championship bout will be for the WBO, IBF, IBO, The Ring, and the WBA Heavyweight Championships. The event will air live on HBO on Saturday at 4:45PM ET.

According to oddsmakers from online sportsbook Bodog, Klitschko enters the fight as the favorite with odds of -260 while Haye has betting odds of +200. The over/under for rounds has been set at 7.5 with the over at -140 and the under at +100.

Klitschko owns the IBF, IBO, WBO, and The Ring heavyweight titles as he has a record of 55-3-0 with 49 wins coming by knockout. He stands 6-foot-5 and has a reach of 81 inches. He has won his last 12 bouts, with his last two victories coming by knockout. His three losses were all by TKO.

Strengths: Klitschko is a powerful puncher and his size creates a lot of problems for his opponents, as he tends to tower over them and make it hard for them to get inside his 81-inch reach. Klitschko likes to use that reach to keep his opponents at bay, where he can pepper them with a jab before following up with some potent combinations.

Weaknesses: Klitschko has been suspect to some knockouts and in two of his losses, he started slow and really got dominated. Some of his problems come from facing a lefty, but he has since been able to combat that. In this fight, he is facing a relatively untested opponent who has a lot to gain, so Klitschko will probably have to try and survive an early surge from Haye.
