Fury Overwhelming Favourite
Fury goes into this fight as the overwhelming favourite. The fights he has produced in recent history have proved his dominance in the heavyweight division and it will need to take something very special from Whyte if he wants to take the belt off him.
Fury is still yet to be defeated posing a record of W31-L0-D1 with the only blemish on his record being the controversial draw in the first matchup with Deontay Wilder.
Whyte will go into this fight with a record of W28-L2, one of the losses was to Alexander Povetkin in his second most recent fight back in 2020. A rematch clause was triggered by Whyte and in the 2nd bout, and the Brit managed to get the better of Povetkin in the 4th round via technical knockout (TKO).
Fury By KO Or TKO
In the three fights that Fury fought against Wilder he was knocked down four times, twice in the latest bout (both in round four) and twice in the first (Round 9 & 12). The Gypsy King managed to put Wilder down five times and although he isn’t known for his knockout power, he still won the two most recent bouts via TKO and KO.
In this division, all fighters have the power to KO their opponents so it is often the fighter who can avoid the most amount of damage that comes out on top. Fury’s pace and ability to duck and weave opposing strikes is phenomenal for someone of his height and build, his unpredictable nature and trash-talking in the ring could be a defining factor in this fight.
He stands at 6 ft 9 and has a seven-inch reach on Whyte here (85 inches to 75), and that will play a huge role as Fury will look to control the fight from a distance with his lead jab.
The two losses that Whyte faced were by TKO and UD (unanimous decision) against Anthony Joshua and Povetkin, because of this we believe that the fight will be won by TKO or KO because Fury is a better boxer than both aforementioned heavyweights. Fury has won 68.75% of his bouts via this decision and we think Saturday night will be no different.
