Tyson Fury vs Dillian Whyte Betting Odds Analysis
Tyson “The Gypsy King” Fury has been the betting underdog in two of his last five fights. Of course, both of those instances came in his first two meetings with Deontay Wilder, while Fury was the chalk – but only at -285 – in their third meeting, which was his last fight. Fury’s -540 line for Whyte represents his shortest odds since he fought Otto Wallin as a -2000 favorite in September 2019.
On The MMA Hour, Fury suggested this will be his retirement fight.
Rare Underdog Spot For The Body Snatcher
Dillian “The Body Snatcher” Whyte has been the betting favorite in each of his last five fights, including the night he suffered a fifth-round knockout loss to Alexander Povetkin in August 2020. The last time he had plus-money odds, he was the narrow +125 option against Joseph Parker in a fight he won via unanimous decision. Can the big man cash again?
Fury vs Whyte Preview
The undefeated champion, who is 31-0-1 with 22 wins coming by way of knockout, is the face of the heavyweight division right now. Of course, it certainly helps when you put together three amazing fights with Deontay Wilder, ultimately winning the WBC championship and now having held all four major heavyweight titles.
The Gypsy King is a rare specimen who stands six-foot-nine and weighs over 270 pounds but moves like a cat. He has tremendous in-ring abilities, with outstanding footwork and movement to go along with solid punching power and exceptional conditioning. With the Wilder trilogy, Fury also demonstrated he has a hell of a chin, withstanding many big blows from the former champ while not being put down for good.
Can Whyte Catch Fury?
While his record may not be as pretty, the Body Snatcher’s resume is still certainly impressive. The Jamaica native will walk to the squared circle with a record of 28-2, including 19 victories by knockout, though only two of his last five wins have come in that manner.
Whyte doesn’t have the movement that Fury does. He’s a little more flat-footed, inching forward looking to unload his heavy hands. One aspect of his game that bears watching is his bodywork – he invests early and often trying to drop his opponent’s hands before going up to try to end the night. He is quick to get out of danger when he’s in the pocket, though his conditioning has been in question in recent times and that elusiveness dips when he gets tired.
Fury vs Whyte Pick
Fury will have to be careful when he enters the pocket – Whyte throws with reckless abandon and all-out power early on. However, the Gypsy King has the edge in all technical boxing skills and I expect Fury to create angles, batter the Body Snatcher with stiff straight punches and then put him away when he starts to tire.
It could be a quick night, perhaps not reaching the latter portion of this 12-round bout.
