The bout has since been rescheduled for the 18th of May 2024 for the Undisputed heavyweight Championship. It was expected that Anthony Joshua and Deontay Wilder would fight as the co-main event. However, after the American's defeat to Joseph Parker, that fight will not be happening.

Usyk comes into the fight with five of his last six wins coming against British Boxers after beating Daniel Dubois in controversial fashion last time out. His other wins have came against Anthony Joshua, Derek Chisora and Tony Bellew. Meanwhile, Tyson Fury's fight against Francis Ngannou wasn't without controversy either as many believed the former UFC fighter came significantly closer to beating Fury than the scorecard's suggested. Since Fury's trilogy with Deontay Wilder, he has fought Dillian Whyte and Derek Chisora - defeating both in convincing fashion but Fury will have to fight significantly better if he is to beat Usyk, particularly if we see the Usyk that defeated Anthony Joshua with ease.

Odds of a knockout in Tyson Fury Vs Oleksandr Usyk

As fights go, we haven't seen a fight in the heavyweight division look so certain to go to a decision in a long time. The betting odds, suggest that Tyson Fury to win by decision is the most likely outcome while Fury is almost 4/1 to win by knockout. This implies that the chances of a knockout being what determines the Undisputed Heavyweight Champion is very low. This is also backed up in the statistics from both fighters last 10 fights.

  • Tyson Fury - 4/10 fights have gone to a decision.
  • Oleksandr Usyk - 6/10 fights have gone to a decision.

That only evens out at 50%, which on-paper doesn't seem too high but when you consider both fighters have been heavy favourites in most fights, we should have seen significantly more knockouts. The odds are fairly even here with Fury the odds on favourite in the sports betting markets. One of the fighters will lose their undefeated record but it's unlikely to be by knockout.

This means that the betting market for round group betting has particularly high odds however; and if the unthinkable happens and one of these men are unable to continue in the contest, then you could find significant wins in these betting markets.

Odds of a decision victory in Tyson Fury Vs Oleksandr Usyk

When looking at the Fury Vs Usyk odds, a decision is clearly the expected outcome and if you're backing a winner by decision or technical decision in Saudi Arabia, you'll unlikely find good value for your bet unless you back a specific winner, then you'll receive odds of over evens but realistically, this isn't too different from simply backing a winner. Both fighters sit in-between evens and 2/1 to win by decision as both fighting styles suit that betting market. Whoever does win the Undisputed Heavyweight title will likely have to improve their performance from their last fight as both fighters were downed by weaker opponents as Usyk defeated Daniel Dubois after falling after a controversial 'low blow' but after his time out, Usyk dominated the bout. Fury on the other hand, fell in the third round to Francis Ngannou before controversially winning the fight by decision.

The total rounds bet of the fight may be a good bet to go if you don't believe the fight will go to decision but you're not particularly confident that Fury will beat Oleksandr Usyk or vice-versa.

How likely is a draw in Tyson Fury Vs Oleksandr Usyk?

These two fighters may seem evenly matched on paper, with Fury as the slight favourite but the Tyson Fury Vs Oleksandr Usyk betting odds for the fight don't favour the draw and rightfully so. Draws are very unlikely in boxing as it requires all three judges to score the card the same with both fighters finishing on the same points. Typically, this doesn't happen but it theoretically could and with this fight being evenly matched, it wouldn't surprise many if the fight is extremely close.
