Tyson Fury Odds: Gypsy King 4/5 to beat Oleksandr Usyk

Tyson Fury will bid to further cement his boxing legacy by becoming the first undisputed heavyweight champion in a quarter of a century on Saturday night.

The Gypsy King, who currently holds the WBC and Ring Magazine world titles, has been priced up at 4/5 to capture Oleksandr Usyk's WBA, IBF and WBO straps in Riyadh on Saturday night and fully unify the blue-riband division.

Not since Lennox Lewis in 1999 has a single fighter held all of the heavyweight marbles, but that is the carrot dangling in front of Fury as he seeks to establish himself as one of the sport's true all-time greats.

The Morecambe fighter has been heavily backed to reign supreme in what many are describing as the 'fight of the century' in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, on Saturday night, but in betting terms, there's little to split the two fighters.

Usyk, a former cruiserweight king, has made a mockery of sceptics who questioned whether he would be able to step up in weight, dismantling Anthony Joshua on two occasions to tee-up this weekend's mouth-watering showdown in the Middle East.

"I've said it many times, and I'll say it again, I have travelled the world many times, over many many years, looking for a man who can fight me and if (Oleksandr) Usyk is that man, then I will shake his hand and say 'fair play, let's go for a beer, mush'," Fury told bet365 during fight week.

"If not, and I beat him, then I will still do the same. The offer is always there."

The Ukrainian has been priced up at 1/1 to take all four titles back to his homeland, but surprisingly, boasts narrowly shorter odds to prevail on points should the bout go the full, scheduled 12-round distance.

He's 2/1 to get the judges verdict, with Fury a slightly longer 21/10 to get the nod on the scorecards.

Fury, of the two, appears the more likely to provide a stoppage victory, given his superior size and reach, with the 6ft 9ins fighter quoted at 3/1 to end the fight inside the distance, with Usyk's KO or TKO hopes priced up at 5/1.

"The KO is what we are going for!" Fury, unbeaten in his 35 professional fights to date, added earlier this week.

"If the knockout comes then we will take it, if not then we will take the points win! Victory is victory, whether you win by an inch or a mile."

It's also worth noting the 12/1 on offer for the fight to end in a draw; especially given how close many are expecting the showdown to be.

Fury, let's not forget, already has a draw on his record, with the first leg of his mesmerising trilogy with Deontay Wilder ending in stalemate back in 2018, despite the fact that many had perceived the current WBC champion to have done enough to have dethroned the then unbeaten American.

Fingers crossed, there's no such controversy this time around.

Odds were correct at the time of writing and are subject to fluctuation.
