In the biggest all-British fight heavyweight boxing has produced in a generation Tyson Fury and Dillian Whyte go head-to-head at Wembley Stadium on Saturday. The Britons meet in front of a record-breaking crowd of 94,000 for the WBC world heavyweight title. As we look forward to what promises to be an explosive fight on Saturday night, betting.bet will bring you the latest news and opinions on the fight as well as best pre-fight odds from our betting partners at BoyleSports.
The self-proclaimed Gypsy King, Tyson Fury heads to Wembley undefeated with 31 wins and 1 draw from 32 previous professional fights. The two-time world champion holds the WBC title having dethroned Deontay Wilder in a thrilling trilogy.
Saturday's opponent has undoubtedly earned his world title shot having spent almost five years as the WBC's mandatory challenger. Dillian Whyte's much-publicised wait for a world title has coincided with The Bodysnatcher forging quite the reputation in the heavyweight division.
Whyte bounced back from an early career loss to Anthony Joshua to build an impressive CV. Wins against the likes of Derek Chisora (twice), Joseph Parker and Alexander Povetkin highlight just why will not be taken lightly by Fury on Saturday night.
Where the Fight will be Won and Lost
Despite Tyson Fury winning inside the distance 22 times in 31 previous victories, he has never been seen as a big puncher.
However, he is undoubtedly the better boxer and is far more likely to win should the fight go the distance. With superior reach and footwork, Fury is expected to box at a distance.
In contrast, if Dillian Whyte stands any chance of becoming world champion he will have to rough up the Gypsy King. Whyte will need to put pressure on Fury from the first bell and box up close to nullify Fury's reach advantage.
Tyson Fury's biggest strengths are his superior reach and boxing skills whilst Dillian Whyte possesses arguably the biggest left hook in boxing.
Online Betting Tips
Both fighters are capable and experienced in going deep into a fight. Eight of Dillian Whyte's last twelve fights have gone at least ten rounds with six going the full distance. Tyson Fury finally got the better of Deontay Wilder in round 11 last time out. That was the fourth time in his last six fights that's gone to the judge's scorecards.
BoyleSports have boosted their odds on the fight going the distance from 7/4 to 2/1. If the fight does go to the judges then Fury to win by unanimous decision could be excellent value at 3/1.
Many experts are predicting a classic at Wembley Stadium on Saturday. If both boxers stand and trade we could see several knockdowns, perhaps early on. Both fighters to be knocked down in the first six rounds is incredible value at 7/1. At least four knockdowns is available at the same price.
If you're expecting a far less explosive evening at Wembley Stadium then Tyson Fury to win with zero knockdowns could be worth backing at 4/5.
