KJ Noons vs Billy Evangelista odds for Strikeforce fight on Dec. 17

via assets.sbnation.com

"King Karl" is back.

Former professional boxer and EliteXC champion K.J. Noons will return to face Billy Evangelista at the upcoming Strikeforce: "Melendez vs. Masvidal" event scheduled for tomorrow night at the Valley View Casino Center in San Diego, California.

Despite winning his first two fights as a Strikeforce employee, Noons (10-4) has now dropped to 2-2 for the former San Jose-based organization, falling to Nick Diaz and Jorge Masvidal in back-to-back unanimous decision losses.

But that hasn't stopped him from being labeled the -230 favorite for his Saturday night scrap in San Diego.

Evangelista (11-1) is also coming off a unanimous decision loss to Jorge Masvidal, going down on points at the "Feijao vs. Henderson" event back in March.

It was the first loss of the Fresno native's career but that could quickly be erased with a convincing win over a name like Noons.

To do that, he has to overcome his opponent's stand-up -- and a +180 betting line. Anyone smell an upset? Or is this a fairly predictable fight?

Who ya' got?
