Although the match isn't a certainty, Caesars Palace has made heavyweight champ Lennox Lewis a —180 favorite to defend his title over Mike Tyson.

The takeback on Tyson is +140.

The heavyweight championship bout must take place on or before Dec. 31, 2002 for wagers to be valid.

"This is the fight everyone has been waiting for and even though there is no date or location set, people are already talking about it and are excited to make their picks," said Chuck Esposito, assistant vice president of Race & Sports at Caesars Palace.
