Fury vs. Usyk fight odds

Tyson Fury -120 vs. Oleksandr Usyk +105

Fury (34-0-1) is coming off a narrow split-decision win over former UFC heavyweight champion Francis Ngannou last year. It was Ngannou’s first pro boxing match, but he still managed to knock Fury down and came within a couple of points of winning the fight.

That’s caused some to wonder whether Fury might be on the decline or if he simply took Ngannou too lightly. The big man looked rusty and sluggish at times in that fight, leading to concerns that he might be on the decline after years of heavyweight dominance.

Usyk (21-0) will be giving up around six inches or so in height to Fury, but it’s not the first time he’s been the smaller man in a fight. His hand speed and footwork are both tremendous assets, not to mention uncommon ones at heavyweight. When he keeps moving and controls the range, he’s extremely hard for opponents to hurt.

Fury will likely want to keep him either on the end of the jab or all the way in close where he can muscle him around in the clinch. Usyk has to avoid letting Fury wear him down with that weight and size, making the fight more a contest of speed and athleticism. Both those attributes are firmly on the Ukrainian’s side here.

Fury vs. Usyk props & analysis

Usyk picked up a ninth-round knockout win in his last fight, but that was his first finish inside the distance since 2018. As a former cruiserweight champ, Usyk isn’t known for having a ton of power at heavyweight.

When he does put opponents away, it tends to be later in fights, after chopping away at them for several rounds. Just five of his career stoppages have come before the seventh round, and all of those were in a lower weight class.

Fury is the superior knockout artist here, with stoppage wins inside the distance in four of his last five bouts. Still, Usyk is notoriously hard to hurt, and even Fury’s knockouts don’t tend to come early in fights — at least not against quality competition. Here are some prop bet odds for how the upcoming fight might go:
