Fury The Betting Favorite To Defeat Chisora Again
Sky Bet make Tyson Fury the odds-on favorite to beat old foe Dereck Chisora when the pair meet for a second time in July.
Unbeaten Fury scored a points victory in their first bout in London in 2011 and he's 1/2 [-200 in U.S.] to beat him in Manchester's Phones4U Arena, with Chisora given odds of 13/8 [+162.5 in U.S.] to win.
Both heavyweights have improved greatly since, with Chisora earning stoppage wins in four of his last five bouts, and he's 7/2 [+350 in U.S.] to continue that trend against Fury.
Manchester-born Fury is 6/4 [+150 in U.S.] to stop Chisora, who has four defeats on his record, inside the 12 rounds, but David Haye is the only man to have knocked 'Del Boy' out.
Sky Bet's Dale Tempest said: "It's another fantastic rematch for British boxing fans and we, the bookmakers, are just as excited.
"Fury is the favorite but the initial odds are finely balanced and we're expecting a few shifts in the build-up to the fight in July."

Decent odds for Chisora. I'd have it close to 50/50 maybe a slight 55/45 edge to Fury.Post a Comment/View More User Comments (7)
