Is This It for Fury?

Maybe all the retirement talk is just smoke and mirrors for Tyson Fury, but this is a man that has struggled with staying motivated, and still, Fury is undefeated. This speaks volumes to the WBC and The Ring heavyweight champion as he is able to beat his opponents when his mind is not focused.

Fury cannot afford to overlook Whyte. This is a man that has a 68 percent knockout ratio and has KO’d Alexander Povetkin and hurt Joseph Parker. If we’re going by how “shredded” Fury was against Wilder, it’s an indication that bettors need not sweat too much.

Fury should be a solid bet online even if he has some scary spots in this match. He has a size and reach advantage and is one of the toughest boxers to grace the ring. Even if he does get hurt, he should be able to outlast Whyte.

Whyte Won’t be Intimidated

Dillian Whyte has only lost twice in his boxing career: to Anthony Joshua and to Povetkin, which he avenged immediately. As far as the next tier of heavyweight boxers, he could be the first man up. But taking on Fury is a big step up.

This is a fight he’s been linked to since 2019. Now he has a shot to prove he’s not just the “third option” behind Joshua and Wilder. As far as his boxing acumen, Whyte has one of the best mid-range styles in the division. He hits hard and he hits clean and could give Fury plenty of issues here.

Whyte is also very durable though he’s been hurt and finished several times in his career. He’ll also have to overcome a seven-inch reach disadvantage. If he can keep eluding Fury’s jabs, he can make things dangerous for him as he has the faster hands.

Fury vs Whyte Head-to-Head

This will be Tyson Fury’s and Dillian Whyte’s first meeting. As discussed, Fury will be significantly larger than Whyte: 6’9” versus 6’4” and 85” reach versus 78”. Both are close in age: Fury at 33 and Whyte at 34 and have at least 30 pro fights each.

Fury vs Whyte Prediction

We should not underestimate Dillian Whyte in this spot. He does not have the same explosiveness or punching power as Deontay Wilder but he is a better technical boxer. Whyte can throw some rapid jabs and mix it up on the inside. He is also a quick learner. However, he is still giving up a lot in size.

Whyte may find success early against Tyson Fury. He may even rock him at one point. But once Fury recovers, which he will, he should be able to wear Whyte out even if it means draping himself over him and frustrating him with his jab and footwork. It may not be as exciting as his last bout with Wilder, but a win is a win. Bet Tyson Fury on the sportsbook and take the over 9½ rounds at near-even odds: -105.

Pick: Tyson Fury -600

Pick: Over 9½ (-105)
