Fury vs Usyk Betting Tips & Predictions


The story of the odds has been just as fascinating as the fighters when it comes to Tyson Fury vs Oleksandr Usyk, and you can check out the latest big fight odds on our dedicated Fury vs Usyk betting page.

These two have been the number uno and numero dos of the division for close to three years now and with that ordering chopping and changing in many’s eyes, the odds on each fighter winning has followed suit.

Even as short a time ago as December last year you could get Oleksandr Usyk as an 11/5 underdog with the needle moving to see him as a 20/23 favourite just six weeks later.

Now, the Ukrainian sits balanced at Evens with bet365 with Fury coming in as the slight 4/5 favourite with bet365 in Riyadh.

So, if the fight result is a coin toss, then prop markets can surely wield some value, and where better to start than some up and down action. Tyson Fury has been knocked down seven times in his career despite never losing a fight, and with the “Gypsy King” entering the latter stages of his career his reflexes and ability to move over the 36 minute distance are surely suffering.

11/2 is the price for Fury to be knocked down and win the fight (something he has done on four separate occasions) and if you fancy both to touch the canvas then 10/1 with bet365 is a fairly lofty offering.

Fury vs Usyk

Fury is certainly on the decline but how steep is it? His 2020 routing of Deontay Wilder in their second fight seems a long time ago now, with a couple of dud performances against Dereck Chisora and Francis Ngannou all we have seen of him since early 2022.

But Usyk himself isn’t completely void of ring rust. The difference is the toll that Fury’s weight issues have had on his body throughout his career, compared to Usyk who has grown gradually into the heavyweight division and now looks good for it.

Fury’s awkward, spidery style is a nightmare for any heavyweight with his 34-0-1 (24) record proving that assessment, but if there is a man to crack that code then it’s the agile, well-schooled Usyk.

If Usyk is able to get on the inside of Fury then those short, sharp combinations and uppercuts could well begin to chop down the tree and question the equilibrium of a man that is known to tumble.

This being said, Usyk to win this by stoppage is the value pick of the four outcomes at a meaty 5/1 with bet365.

Fury vs Usyk

We know Fury can be hurt and we know Fury can be cut and, above all, we know what a talent Oleksandr Usyk is. Usyk will arguably be the best fighter that Fury has entered the ring with, and with a career littered in drama it’s hard to imagine this fight just ticking by with none.
