The World Boxing Council (WBC) belt holder Tyson Fury (34-0-1, 24 KOs) remains the favorite in his fight against Oleksandr Usik (21-0, 14 KOs), but his chances of success continue to fall rapidly. Analysts have again updated their forecast for the fight for the title of absolute world heavyweight champion, significantly changing the quotes.
The probability of Fury's victory has decreased by another 5%. Bets on Tyson's success are now accepted at odds of 1.72 (previously 1.61). At the same time, Usik's triumph is estimated at 2.20 (previously - 2.25). Experts also began to believe more in a draw outcome, with odds for the event reaching 15.00 (previously 17.00).
