Klitschko vs Fury Boxing Betting Preview

For over a decade, Wladimir Klitschko has held total dominance over the heavyweight division with 22 straight wins since his last loss back in 2004. Klitschko will put his titles on the line this Saturday night in Dusseldorf, Germany when he faces the undefeated Tyson Fury at the ESPRIT Arena.

Klitschko is going off as a -500 favorite to win this heavyweight bout according to online sportsbook Bovada. Tyson Fury would pay +350 if he is able to pull off the upset.

Since suffering his last loss to Lamon Brewster on April 10 in 2004, Wladimir Klitschko has spent the last 11 years becoming the undisputed king of heavyweight boxing. Klitschko grabbed the WBA Super Heavyweight title in a win over David Haye in 2011, adding to a collection that already included The Ring, IBF, WBO and IBO Heavyweight titles.

An excellent technical boxer with exceptional power, Wladimir Klitschko has rarely been tested over the last decade and owns a 64-3-0 lifetime record with 53 career knockouts.

Fury Undefeated Through First 24 Fights

At 27 years old, Tyson Fury hasn't had many chances to prove himself over his young career against established opponents. But he has passed every test put in front of him to date, amassing a 24-0-0 record with 18 knockouts along the way.

Standing at 6 feet nine inches, Fury will have a height, weight and reach advantage on Klitschko that could help make up for Klitschko's decided edge in technique. Tyson Fury is also heralded for being a versatile boxer that can be effective as a southpaw.

These two men couldn't be much more different from a personality standpoint. Fury is young, loud, arrogant and brash while Klitschko is 12 years older, reserved and takes a much more business-like approach to boxing. Klitschko has the edge as a better technical boxer, but anytime two big heavyweights enter the ring, the fight can end in one punch either way.

Wladimir Klitschko by knockout is the most heavily favored prop at +110 at Bovada, followed by Klitschko by decision at +165, Fury by knockout at +600 and Fury by decision at +750. The Over/Under for this fight is set at 9.5 rounds.
