Tyson Fury vs Derek Chisora ​​Fight Prediction, Odds, Start Time, Preview, Undercard, Expert Picks

To say Tyson Fury has had a strange year would be an understatement. While not going against the expected opponent, Fury will return to the ring once more before the year is out. Fury is set to defend his WBC heavyweight title against Derek Chisora ​​in a trilogy bout on Saturday at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in London (ESPN+, 1 p.m. ET).

Fury’s year got off to a sensible enough start when he faced long-time mandatory contender Dillian Whyte in April. As expected, Fury made it easy with Whyte. What wasn’t expected was Fury’s in-ring announcement that he was retiring from boxing.

That announcement sparked months of anger that alternated between insisting he was indeed retired and calling out fighters. It was during this phase that Fury first came up with the idea of ​​a trilogy fight with Chisora. Just days after announcing he would be fighting Chisora, Fury once again announced his retirement.

With that “retirement,” Fury vacated his Ring Magazine heavyweight championship, though he didn’t do the same with his WBC title, making it clear he still had plans to return to the ring.

“I’m back for more punishment. An idiot, really, but what can we do?” Fury said this week. “I can’t let it go. Maybe there’s a doctor out there who can help me let this thing go because I’ve got this bull by the horns and I’m riding him. How much longer can I hold on because, who knows what I know , is at 34, I’ve had surgery after surgery, I’m in shambles, how much longer can this go on?

“I’ve lived a terrible lifestyle outside of boxing. I gained weight and had so many problems with boxing. I fight fire with fire. They say you can’t burn the candle at both ends, but I’m right in the middle. I don’t know how much longer I can keep this up and this is the brutal and honest truth.”

After Oleksandr Usyk defended his WBA, IBF and WBO heavyweight titles in his rematch with Anthony Joshua, Fury once again completed his retirement, making it clear he was looking for a fight to become the first undisputed heavyweight champion to be crowned with four belts. When it was clear that Usyk would be out until 2023, Fury entered negotiations to face Anthony Joshua in the biggest fight in British boxing history.

Of course, those negotiations fell through when Joshua claimed to agree to all of Fury’s terms, but Fury continued to set seemingly arbitrary deadlines before claiming that Joshua and his team were too difficult to work with and that he would never attempt a fight again to lead with the former two-time heavyweight champion.

And with that, Fury returned to a fight with Chisora. Fury made a unanimous decision over Chisora ​​in July 2011, forcing Chisora’s corner to end the fight after 10 rounds in their November 2014 rematch.

While Fury has since established himself as the top heavyweight in the world and one of the sport’s best pound-for-pound fighters, Chisora ​​has struggled to remain relevant as a contender since 2017 with a 7-5 record.

After three straight losses, Chisora ​​earned a hard-fought split-decision win over Kubrat Pulev in July, his first win since October 2019.

While no boxing fan breaks a sweat at the prospect of watching Chisora ​​challenge Fury for a world title, the champion gets what the champion wants. And one can only hope that this fight will serve as a prelude to Fury vs Usyk in 2023.

Before we make a prediction and expert pick for the main event, let’s take a look at the rest of Saturday’s undercard with the latest odds from Caesars Sportsbook.

forecast

Honestly, it’s hard to take this fight seriously. Chisora ​​has never been better than Fury at any point in her career. Fury is now better than ever while Chisora’s best days are far behind him. Power is the last thing that leaves a fighter, but even Chisora’s power is not a legitimate way to defeat Fury.

Yes, Chisora ​​could land a perfect bomb that turns off Fury’s lights. Deontay Wilder is faster and hits harder than Chisora ​​and he failed to hold Fury down for three fights.

Fury will do whatever he wants in this fight. That probably means he has to put on a little show with his jab and defense until he feels like knocking out Chisora ​​in the middle rounds. Choice: Tyson Fury via TKO5
