Usyk vs. Fury: bookmakers named the favorite of the main fight in the heavyweight division
British boxer Tyson Fury (33-0-1, 24 KOs) is considered a clear favorite to fight Ukrainian Oleksandr Usyk (21-0, 14 KOs) for the title of absolute world heavyweight champion. The fight is expected to be officially announced on Christmas Eve 2023.
Analysts have already made their predictions for the most anticipated event in the boxing world. Bets on Tyson's victory are accepted at odds of 1.44.
A draw is estimated at 19.00. And the success rate of the Ukrainian unified champion reaches 2.75.
Earlier, Fury named the only condition under which he would agree to fight Usyk. Prior to that, insider Mike Coppinger said that promoters were optimistic about the chances of organizing a fight between the Ukrainian and the Briton.
In addition, Fury called Usyk a fraud after his victory over Dubois. The Gypsy King also mocked the Ukrainian for "rolling around the ring" after being hit in the fifth round of the fight on August 26.
Tyson's promoter Frank Warren has announced the approximate dates for the Gypsy King-Usyk fight. Legendary Russian Kostya Tszyu believes the fight will be difficult for Oleksandr, but called him the best heavyweight in the world at the moment.
And another Russian representative, Nikolai Valuev, spoke dismissively of the Ukrainian's chances in a fight with Fury. In turn, Usyk's coach Serhiy Lapin ridiculed Tyson and his team. It should be noted that the Briton will fight former Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) champion Francis Ngannou on October 26.
As reported by OBOZREVATEL, Tyson Fury's promoter Bob Arum made a sharp and categorical statement about his client's fight with Oleksandr Usyk. Another representative of the Briton, Frank Warren, expressed hope that the fight for the absolute title would definitely take place. In his turn, former European Boxing Union (EBU) champion Spencer Oliver predicted the Ukrainian's defeat in the fight.
