Fury vs Usyk Early Odds: Holding World Championship Belts and Believing They Are Good Enough to Win

  • Between them, Fury and Usyk hold heavyweight titles
  • This would be a unification fight in either the US or the UK
  • Tyson Fury is the early betting favorite

A unification bout involving Usyk and WBC champion Tyson Fury sits at the head of our wish list, and we’ll keep our fingers crossed it happens before the end of the year.

Usyk beat AJ in style at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in London last September, taking the Londoner’s clutch of championship belts. The Ukrainian was a favorite with all respected betting apps to make it two wins on the bounce over Joshua when the pair met in an eagerly anticipated match-up in Jeddah. Oleksandr lived up to the pre-fight hype, winning the bout and proving once and for all that he is the more talented boxer.

Having beaten Joshua twice, Derek Chisora and Tony Bellew, the unbeaten champion with a 100% record from 20 fights, now have his sights set on scalping another Briton in Fury. Will, the Gypsy King, restore the pride of British boxing on the world stage, or will Usyk collect all the belts and give followers something we’ve not had for too long; one universally recognized heavyweight champion? The best of the best and the cream of the crop.

Fury Vs Usyk Early Odds

Fury vs Usyk Pick

As this bout hasn’t been officially announced yet and there is no date, venue or agreement between the fighters, we will keep our powder dry for the time being. If you want to wait until the ink is dry on the contract and the country that will host the action has been confirmed, it’s better to sit tight for a few weeks. But if you are after the best odds, better than fight fans will be offered after the fixture has been confirmed, it’s sensible to get on early.

As is the case when betting ante-post on horse racing or any major sports competition, like the winner of the English Premier League before the opening game, the earlier you make your predictions, the higher your odds will be. Bookies like to reward their early customers with a generous price. Those bold enough to get in before the details have been set in stone are given the top odds. When a venue and date have been accepted, traders working at the top betting apps will adjust their offer.

If the bout was announced today, we already know that Fury would be the pre-fight betting favourite, with every sportsbook coming down hard in support of the Englishman. It’s no surprise to see the top betting apps in agreement – it happens often – but what is rarer is just how certain the industry is that they have the right man picked. Fury is a resounding favourite, and despite both being undefeated fighters, traders can’t see any other outcome than a strong win for the WBC champion and Fury becoming the undisputed king.

Tyson Fury vs Oleksandr Usyk Prediction

The early signs are the market has been harsh on Usyk, who is now 20-0-0 as a professional, having wrapped up the cruiserweight division before moving up to heavyweight and taking control of that too. He isn’t yet at the level of dominance he enjoyed in boxing’s second-highest division, but he is well on his way.

Fury is a different level of opponent than Usyk has faced in the past. He’s a different animal to the likes of Joshua, Chisora and Bellew. The most obvious difference is the size and strength of the traveller who has already beaten Wladimir Klitschko, Dillian Whyte and Deontay Wilder. Whyte and the Bronze Bomber were both taken out in style, Fury using his power and size advantages to tee off with big shots.

That size will prove to be the defining factor again should Usyk and Fury come to blows. The Brit stands at a foreboding 6ft 9inches tall with an 85-inch reach and weighed 277lbs before his third win over Wilder. That’s important when we learn Usyk is six inches shorter, has seven inches to find on reach and weighed just over 221lbs in each of his last two bouts.

Add to that the fact Fury has 13 fights more experience. A dozen wins more and 23 knockouts against the 13 of Usyk. Boxing at the highest level – especially at heavyweight – is decided by fine margins. With both fighters at the peak of their powers, holding world championship belts and believing they are good enough to win, Fury’s size, strength and ring experience should give him an edge.
