Fury Makes Easy Money Against Old Rival
It’s the third meeting between Tyson Fury and Dereck Chisora and as their Fury vs Chisora betting odds indicate, this will be just like the other two – a dominant win for Fury. The “Gypsy King” handed Chisora his first professional loss over a decade ago then forced his corner to call it a night in the second.
Since then, Fury has gone on to make riches while mopping the division while Chisora has lost three of his last four fights. If Chisora can pull off this upset, it may be the decade’s biggest. He has a “puncher’s chance” as his holds a 70 percent knockout-to-win ratio. However, he has not finished anyone since 2019.
As for Fury, his 11-inch reach advantage could once again be the difference-maker here. And if Chisora finds a way to touch Fury’s chin, the 6’9″ Fury could absorb it and keep going. Deontay Wilder made a deal with the devil to KO Fury and all it led to was kingmaking Fury.
‘they start talking about activities after the fight. A $100 bet on Chisora will return $900’
In fact, Fury is already talking about the FIFA World Cup after he beats Chisora. Typically, it does not bode well for fighters – even the dominant ones – when they start talking about activities after the fight. A $100 bet on Chisora will return $900. If bettors take Fury’s advice, that’s worth a sprinkle on the Fury vs Chisora betting odds.
“I bet all the underdogs and I always lose my £50 or £100,” Fury said during his BT Sport face-off interview. “It’s just like chucking money down the toilet, basically. But that’s what it is, we do things and it’s a fight.”
Dubois vs Lerena
Title: WBA World Heavyweight Title (200 lbs.+)
Dubois Looks to Be More Like Fury over Chisora
Just before Fury-Chisora III is another English champion in Dubois. His only career blemish is a loss to Joe Joyce in a fight that may have been like the first Fury-Chisora bout. Heading to that fight, Dubois was the British champion like Chisora and Joyce was the hot undefeated prospect like Fury was. Given where Fury and Chisora are in their careers, Dubois should hope he is not the Chisora to Joyce’s Fury.
Dubois has big plans ahead of him such as fighting either Fury or Oleksandr Usyk. If he can get past Lerena, as the boxing betting odds heavily expected, he might just get his shot.
“He’s the WBA ‘regular’ champion,” Dubois’s trainer, Shane McGuigan told Sky Sports. “People might discredit it, we boxed Trevor Bryan for it. [But Dubois] still holds a version of a world title that puts him in line for being in a powerful position. He’s highly, highly ranked with the WBA.”
Being on the same card as Fury gives Dubois an opportunity to convince the WBC champion that he is the next fight for him. Usyk has no immediate fights on the .
With a potential “money fight” on the line, Dubois can’t get too pressured. Lerena is coming off wins against Mariusz Wach and Firat Arslan. If there is an upset in this event, it could be the least-recognized boxer of the four pulling it off at 7-1.
