Champ Favored in a Lopsided Affair
Tyson Fury returns to defend his WBC Heavyweight Championship against an old foe: Dereck Chisora. Fury already owns a pair of decisive victories over Chisora but here we are for their trilogy bout, which is expected to be a one-sided showcase for the champ. The boxing lines peg Fury as a -2000 favorite as he looks to bury this “rivalry”.
Fury Can’t Overlook His Old Foe
Well, he’s not fighting Anthony Joshua or Oleksandr Usyk. Instead, the WBC champ is keeping himself busy by facing Chisora. On paper, this is just a “tune-up” fight for Fury, who could fight Usyk in a unification bout next. But the “Gypsy King” can’t overlook his old adversary.
Exactly 7 years to the day when @Tyson_Fury first became world heavyweight champion, we enter another fight week for the best heavyweight in the world 💥

Fury has not fought Chisora for over eight years. Since they last fought, Fury has gone on to win the heavyweight belts from all sanctioning bodies. He’s fought Deontay Wilder in a lucrative trilogy. Arguably the best pound-for-pound boxer right now, Fury has also been on a hot streak having won his last three bouts by KO.
As such, his ridiculous line means bettors will need to parlay him or find a prop bet online. But as far as beating Chisora again, Fury just needs to focus a little bit. He has a massive size advantage and is the less worn out of the two. A loss could be the biggest upset this decade.

Chisora Has One Last Ride…
With his career on the line, Chisora dug deep and found a way to edge Kubrat Pulev. Not only did Chisora save his boxing career, he booked himself a big fight and one last shot at Fury. Per his M.O., Chisora did not waste time talking smack toward Fury.
“I think he was a better fighter when I last boxed him,” Chisora told BT Sport. “I’m better now. Last time I fought him he was better, he was good, he was on point.”
Maybe Chisora is just talking up a big game as he’s accustomed to doing. Or maybe he sees Fury, who seems distracted lately, as someone that is ripe for picking. Still, Chisora has not looked that great in recent form. His last solid victory came against David Price in 2019. It will take more than boastful claims.
Fury vs Chisora 3 Head-to-Head
The online sports betting lines are lopsided for a reason. Fury snapped Chisora’s unbeaten streak the first time they fought then beat him up badly in the rematch. The favorite is significantly larger than Chisora being eight inches taller with an 11-inch reach advantage.

Fury vs Chisora 3 Picks & Prediction
There is little-to-no value straight betting Fury at his current line. Instead, throw him in a parlay or bet him to finish Chisora via the props at -340. We also like Fury to do it within the first half of the bout. Chisora, despite what he claims, is shopworn. Fury, already familiar with Chisora, will not waste time and tee off on him prompting a corner stoppage before the seventh round.
