WBC and IBF heavyweight champion Hasim Rahman will again be a heavy underdog in his rematch with former champ Lennox Lewis this Saturday at Mandalay Bay.

Lewis is currently a $3.50 favorite at the Mandalay Bay race and sports book to regain the title he lost last April to Rahman in a fifth round knockout.

Rahman is a $2.50 underdog at Mandalay Bay, according to race and sports book manager Coleen Logsdon.

"The public will probably bet Rahman up until the weekend when the heavy money starts rolling in," Logsdon said. "I believe the price will rise again in favor of Lewis."
