Boxing fans have an incredible month ahead as we enter December. The World Cup in Qatar continues to dominate the sporting headlines, but the sweet science is ready to challenge, with some huge bouts on the schedule. There’s world championship action in the United States and the United Kingdom, boosted by bouts from across the globe. Boxing is in fine health, and it’s time for fighters, promoters, officials, and fans to celebrate with Tyson Fury v Derek Chisora on Saturday.
The English warriors will clash at the stunning Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in London, home of English Premier League team Spurs. With the EPL forced into a winter hibernation due to goings on in the Arab World, it has been a while since this great venue was packed to capacity by sports fans. But all that will change this weekend with the fight sold out. Every seat will be filled as the WBC world heavyweight champion Fury makes his way to the ring to finally settle an old score with rival WAR Chisora.
Add another win to his already impressive unbeaten record, and we could see the Gypsy King force a clash with Anthony Joshua in the new year. That fight would generate so much excitement that it would be possible to fill London’s Wembley Stadium twice. It would also generate huge PPV buys. There’s also the option to fight Oleksandr Usyk in a unification bout. If the pair did meet next year, it would pack any stadium in any country, from England to Ukraine, the United States to Dubai. It’s the one we all want to see.
Odds for this fight taken from Caesars Sportsbooks
As you can see from the above betting odds table, Tyson Fury is the hot betting favorite with online betting giant Caesars Sportsbook. That will come as no major surprise to followers of the fight game, with most pundits picking Fury for the win. He is an unbeaten champion against an opponent that has lost more fights than he’s won over the last few years. Those odds make a bet on Fury to win the contest pointless.
Would you back him for $1600 to win $100, knowing anything can happen in this sport? Heavyweight boxing can be a lotto at times, and Chisora has the power to turn the bout on its head in an instant.
I agree with the bookie’s odds, but backing the winner at such a quote isn’t me, and it’s not tipping. A baby could call a -1600 winner by chance.
To really get the value we deserve from this contest, we must head into the specials markets, where there are some gems to be found if you’re willing to work hard enough and dig deep enough. We are here to guide readers through the rough and to a successful bet at good odds.

The method of victory market is the one we will target here, and when researching this bout, we have come up with a bet that fits the bill.
When looking at his recent form, Fury has 32 wins and one draw with no defeats, with 23 victories coming by knockout. In his last three outings, he has won all by stoppage, and that encourages us to go for another win achieved inside the distance.
The Englishman’s last points decision victory came against Otto Wallin in Las Vegas back in 2019. His last points win on British soil was over Francesco Pianea in the summer of 2018 in Belfast.
Keeping that in mind, we look at the form of his opponent Derek WAR Chisora who has a career record of 33 wins and 12 defeats, with all but 10 of those victories by KO/TKO.
His dozen defeats include three losses by stoppage, but the last of them was against Dillian Whyte in 2018 when he was taken out in the final round of a contest that was scheduled for twelve.
Only Whyte, Tyson Fury, and David Haye have hit hard enough to get rid of Chisora, and that’s a feather in his cap in such a busy career.
This fight will follow a similar path to Fury’s stoppage win over Whyte earlier this year.
Chisora will come to fight; he knows no other way to approach this bout. He will go on the front foot, knowing he can’t out-box or out-smart Tyson. His best chance comes from pushing him back against the ropes, getting close, and unloading his trademark crushing hooks to the head and body.
When Chisora is on his way in, he will be picked off by Fury’s long levers, and that will cause substantial damage in the middle to late rounds.
We’re backing Tyson Fury to beat Derek Chisora by KO/TKO in rounds 7-12 at odds of +200 (Caesars Sportsbook).
