With the elite-level football happening in Qatar right now, the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium plays host to Heavyweight boxing for the second time as Heavyweight number 1, WBC and lineal champion, Tyson Fury defends for the third time against fellow Englishman and long-time contender Derek Chisora.
Tyson Fury v Derek Chisora 3 Heavyweight Boxing Title Fight
It’s been somewhat of an underwhelming build-up as many fans were left disappointed by the “Gypsy King” electing to choose a fighter he has beaten twice convincingly already as his next opponent. This decision came after discussions to set up a huge fight with Anthony Joshua fell through. It is like a man saying he wants to buy a Bentley and then deciding to buy a Ford Mondeo. No matter, we are here now, and Fury (32-0-1, 23 KOs) should want to close 2022 with a resounding win. Anything less will raise questions amongst the doubters, the detractors. However, we have seen before he is very much his own man, and he could decide several ways to win this fight, which makes selecting a strong play a difficult task. Fury is now 34, and has mentioned retirement many times, does he still have the same fire in his belly to stay at the top, and seek those big fights, for huge money with the likes of Usyk and Joshua? Only time will tell.
What has been apparent for some time, is that the 38-year-old Chisora (33-12, 23 KOs) is clearly past his best. “Del-Boy” in my opinion was somewhat fortunate to get the decision in his last fight with Kubrat Pulev, this win ending a losing run of three where he was outpointed twice by Joseph Parker, and by the other division champ Usyk. He is one of the sports “nearly-men”, a high-class gatekeeper to fighters wanting to enter the top rankings of the division but has failed every time he has stepped into that class. He has lost the speed of ten years ago, gets hurt more often, and sometimes knocked down, and stamina is very suspect. What he does still retain, is a dogged determination, and he will try to the end, but one must wonder what is left in the tank after such a long career with so many ups-and-downs.
Tyson Fury v Derek Chisora 3 Heavyweight Boxing Title Fight Betting Preview & Tips
Much has been said by many about what how Fury will approach this contest. Will he carry his “friend” Chisora and play around, ending the fight late or taking it to the cards? Will he fight Chisora as he did on the previous two occasions, keeping his much shorter foe at length and slowly break him down? Or finally, will he take the same approach as his second fight with Wilder, and be aggressive from the start, and put together the type of performance his adoring fans should be demanding? If we take everything on its merits, the “Gypsy King” should absolutely have this fight done before the halfway mark, therefore I am picking some fun plays for small stakes that fit into that timeline.
