Tyson Fury Vs Dereck Chisora

Preview, Prediction and Betting Tip

Tyson Fury takes on Dereck Chisora for the vacant British Heavyweight title and European title as both look to secure mandatory position for Wladimir Klitschko’s WBO world title.

These two met back in 2011, a fight in which Fury won by a clear unanimous decision. The first fight was hardly a classic between two out of shape heavyweights, however there is plenty of buzz around this fight as most see both men as different fighters now. 

Both fighters certainly look in better shape, more motivated and are now obviously more experienced than 3 years ago.

Chisora has been in some big fights in the last couple of years taking on the likes of David Haye and Vitali Klitschko, where as Fury via no fault of his own has been inactive having 3 fights cancelled, seeing him fight just twice in the last 2 years, a blown up Cruiserweight in Steve Cunningham and a modest Joey Abell. 

Against Abell i thought Fury looked a little sloppy at times and he certainly didn’t look in good shape either, but I think he can be forgiven considering the rather brutal big fight cancellations he had imposed upon him. I think Fury looks motivated for this one and has had a long training camp. 

For me Tyson Fury is technically underrated, he has good boxing skills, a nice jab and moves well for a big heavyweight. Its just moments of sloppiness and a couple of heavy knockdowns Fury has suffered in previous fights which perhaps gives people the perception he is clumsy and uncoordinated. But while sometimes that is the case, on his A game he is a very good boxer. 

Chisora is a come forward fighter who bobs and weaves his way into mid range and lets his hands go with bad intentions, he mixes up his punches well and he has a signature overhand right, a punch that we have seen Fury caught with and dropped with in the past. However Fury has already shown he has a big heart in the face of adversity, getting up from heavy knockdowns to win fights. 

I think this is Fury’s fight to lose, he has the tools to win this fight comfortably if he applies them correctly. He will need to look to keep Chisora on the end of his jab and catch him on the way in when Chisora tries to close the distance. Fury’s game plan really should be to box and not get involved if he does that I can see him winning comfortably. 

Chisora will look to cut the ring off and turn up the tempo on Fury and I can see him having his moments in the fight, but for me I think Fury will either stop his man late or win by a clear enough margin on the cards. 

The bookmakers favourite outcome is a Fury KO/TKO, but I do really like Fury on points, as I rate Chisora’s chin. Ladbrokes have Fury by Unanimous decision in their Final Judgement market at 3/1, I think that is a very decent bet. But with odds of 11/1 for the split decision and 18/1 for the Majority decision I think its worth covering.
