Fury vs Chisora Tips: Best Odds & Predictions For Heavyweight Title Fight
Fury vs Chisora Predictions:
Undefeated WBC heavyweight champion Tyson Fury will put his belt on the line in a trilogy bout against Derek Chisora on Saturday.
Betting sites make Fury the heavy favourite to secure a third victory over Del Boy when they clash at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
William Hill and BetVictor are offering a market leading price of 1/16 on the Gypsy King, meaning you would have to stake £16 just to win £1.
Some rivals will only go to 1/40 on a Fury win, while Chisora is a 14/1 underdog with Paddy Power and Betfair.
Fortunately, there is a lot of value on offer if we dig a little deeper into the betting markets, and we have broken down the most compelling options in our Fury vs. Chisora preview.
Another Trilogy Fight Looms For Fury
Fury will become the first heavyweight in history to complete two trilogies when he steps into the ring with Chisora this weekend.
The pair first locked horns all the way back in 2011, when they carried identical 14-0 records into the fight.
Chisora was the British and Commonwealth champion at the time, so he went into the bout as the clear favourite.
He rocked Fury with a ferocious left hook in the second round, but the Gypsy King quickly rallied and dominated the fight from that point onwards.
Two of the judges scored the fight 117-112 in Fury’s favour, and the third had him 118-111 ahead at the final bell.
Fury had extended his record to 22-0 by the time they met for a rematch in 2014, while Chisora had slumped to 20-4 following defeats to Robert Helenius, Vitali Klitschko and David Haye.
The Gypsy King dominated the fight once more, and Chisora’s corner pulled him out at the end of the 10th round.
The best online betting sites for boxing clearly expect a similar outcome this weekend given how low the odds are on a Fury victory.
Fury Puts His Unbeaten Record On The Line
Fury is now widely regarded as the world’s best heavyweight, with an impressive 32-0-1 record during his career.
The only slight blemish on his record came in December 2018, when his fight against Deontay Wilder controversially ended in a draw.
He landed more punches than Wilder in nine of the 12 rounds during that bout, and he really should have been awarded the win.
The Gypsy King took no chances in a rematch against the Bronze Bomber, which he won by TKO in February 2020.
His third fight against Wilder came in October last year, and Fury concluded that trilogy by knocking his opponent out cold.
He then beat Dillian Whyte courtesy of a fierce uppercut in front of a record-breaking crowd at Wembley earlier this year.
Fury insisted he would retire after that fight, but that always seemed unlikely, and he spent most of the year calling out Oleksandr Usyk and Anthony Joshua.
Neither fight materialised - Joshua’s promoter, Eddie Hearn, was accused of sabotaging an all-British clash - so Fury will instead wrap up another trilogy against Chisora.
Chisora Will Throw Hands With Fury
Many boxing fans were underwhelmed by the prospect of Fury defending his title against Chisora, who has lost four of his last five fights.
However, Del Boy has achieved cult hero status among some boxing aficionados thanks to his tenacity and his willingness to take any fight.
He beat Kubrat Pulev courtesy of a split decision in his last outing, which left him with a 33-12 record.
It snapped a run of three straight losses for Chisora, who will turn 39 on the day of this fight.
Despite his opponent being a huge underdog on betting apps, Fury has fiercely rejected claims that he is fighting a washed-up opponent - insisting that he and Chisora will put on a show this weekend.
“The haters are going to hate, but don’t criticise this fight, because we are going to throw our hands when the bell goes,” he said in an interview this week.
Fury Should Come Into His Own In Rounds 5-12
Fury is eight inches taller than Chisora and he has a huge reach advantage, which allowed him to dominate both of their previous fights.
Since then, he has beaten the likes of Wladimir Klitschko, Wilder and Whyte, while Chisora is bordering on journeyman status.
He is younger and sprightlier than Chisora, with a vastly superior skill set, and it would be a major shock if he failed to win this fight.
However, he will be keen to give the fans their money’s worth, so he is unlikely to knock out Chisora in the opening stages of this fight.
Del Boy has only been stopped three times in his career - by David Haye in the fifth, Fury after the 10th and by Whyte in the 11th.
He is a warrior, and he will not go down easily on Saturday. The main total rounds line has been set at 7.5, with Ladbrokes offering 5/6 on over and 5/6 on under, so backing Fury to win in Rounds 5-8 looks appealing at 2/1.
You could also hedge with a smaller bet on him winning in Rounds 9-12, just in case Chisora hangs on longer than expected.
Three of Fury’s last five wins came via TKO - against Whyte, Wilder and Tom Schwarz - and that looks like a shrewd option at 10/11 with Bet365 in this one, as the referee may wave it off if Chisora is taking too much punishment as the fight wears on.
