Tyson Fury - To Win Fight @ 10/11

I really believe that we are going to see a vintage, vintage Tyson Fury performance this weekend.

As soon as that first bell goes, Tyson will do whatever is in his head; he's incredibly adaptable and will go into the fight with a plan a, a plan b and a plan c, and he will be prepared to do whatever it takes to win this fight.

Tommy Fury
(Professional boxer)

Tyson Fury - BY KO, TKO or Disqualification @ 7/2

Tyson Fury has seen everything there is to see in boxing, and as Tyson has said throughout this, there are weight divisions for a reason.

He is the bigger and stronger man and that will play a huge part in this fight. Oleksandr Usyk doesn't like body-punches, he has always had issues with that.

For me this fight ends in a knockout, whether that be a shot to Usyk's body or head, I don't know, but I am convinced that Tyson finishes the job before the final bell.

Tyson Fury - To Win Fight @ 10/11

This fight all depends on how Tyson Fury approaches it and the work he has put in during his training session.

If he comes into it in the same way he did as the Francis Ngannou fight then he will be in for a long, tough night, whereas if he has put everything into it, as I expect him to have done, then I would expect for him to beat Oleksandr Usyk.

Tony Sims
(Boxing trainer) 

Tyson Fury - To Win Fight @ 10/11

We saw Oleksandr Usyk beat Anthony Joshua and look truly unbeatable, and then we saw him against Danie Dubois and look incredibly beatable.

I think, personally, if Tyson Fury is switched on and has done the right preparation and training, on the back of being shook up by Francis Ngannou last time out, then he will win this fight.

He will be too big, he will hit him at range and to be truthful, I just don't see Usyk landing too much at all.

But, this is all about how Tyson has prepared for the fight. If he has done things correctly, he wins.

SugarHill Steward
(Boxing trainer)

Tyson Fury - By KO, TKO or Disqualification @ 7/2

I've always trained Tyson Fury to prepare for anything, and all of the work we have undertaken over the last few years has led to this point.

I see the fight ending in a knockout. I know what we have planned and prepared for and I have seen first-hand just what Tyson is capable of.

Oleksandr Usyk - By Decision or Technical Decision @ 15/8

I really didn't think the heavyweight division was going to suit Oleksandr Usyk when he stepped up, but he has been incredible.

He has kept his athleticism better than Tyson Fury has and I believe that Usyk may well just beat Tyson on points.

It's going to be a really close fight and we will be demanding a rematch afterwards, but my feeling right now is that Usyk will just about get a split-decision victory.

Liam Smith
(Former world champion) 

Tyson Fury - By Decision or Technical Decision @ 15/8

Tyson Fury lives for moments like this, when the chips are down and people begin questioning him, he always produces the goods.

This is the fight he has wanted, Oleksandr Usyk and all of the world titles - he hasn't found a way to lose yet and I don't think he will on Saturday night.

Look he may have to make the fight a stinker for us to watch, but I do think he wins it.

Joseph Parker
(Former world champion)

Tyson Fury - To Win Fight @ 10/11

I'm so glad that this fight is finally happening and that is is all locked-in.

I am sure everybody knows who I am rooting for and who I am backing - of course I am biased, but I know Tyson Fury is going to take care of business and become the fully unified champion of the world.

People may question what happened against Francis Ngannou, but I know he will get it right this time around, from the very start until the very end.

Johnny Nelson
(Former world champion)

Tyson Fury - To Win Fight @ 10/11

I have always said that Tyson Fury beats Oleksandr Usyk, and there's no doubt in my mind that if he turns up fully prepared then he absolutely wins.

If he doesn't turn up in the right frame of mind, and an under-par Tyson Fury, then he won't win - it's as simple as that as far as I am concerned.

Tyson knows what is on the line here though, and, because of that, I expect the very best Tyson Fury to turn up.

Joe Joyce
(Olympic silver medallist)

Tyson Fury - To Win Fight @ 10/11

It's a much-anticipated fight and one that I cannot wait to watch.

When you take a look at the tale of the tape, it's clear to see who should be the favourite - Tyson is bigger, stronger and has an incredible skill-set.

I can see how both fighters could win the fight to be honest; it's a 50/50 that could go either way, but I think Tyson just edges it.

Joe Gallagher
(Boxing trainer)

Tyson Fury - To Win Fight @ 10/11

It's incredibly hard not to lean on the side of Tyson Fury when you have known him for most of his life as I have.

Whether he didn't train properly for the Francis Ngannou fight I'm not sure, but this is a huge night for both fighters.

It could be a bore-fest or it could be a Evander Holyfield - Riddick Bowe type of fight, but either way, if Tyson is on this 100 percent then, as he has proven in the past, he is a very hard man to beat.

Filip Hrgovic
(Heavyweight contender)

Oleksandr Usyk - To Win Fight @ 10/11

For me, Oleksandr Usyk is the favourite in this fight; not just because of how Tyson Fury performed against Francis Ngannou but because I felt this way even before that fight.

It's a close one to call, but I feel Usyk has the edge because he, for me, is a more complete fighter and is always in good shape, he has great footwork and great technique, and solid power too.

Usyk is the more complete fighter and I think he will win.

Andy Ruiz Jr
(Former world champion)

Oleksandr Usyk - By Decision or Technical Decision @ 15/8

If Oleksandr Usyk throws his combinations, goes inside, sticks to his game-plan and doesn't allow Tyson Fury to box him around, I think he will win.

There are a lot of factors in this fight, and it will boil down to who can execute their game-plan the best.

I am leaning towards Oleksandr Usyk becoming the undisputed heavyweight champion though.

Darren Barker
(Former world champion)

Tyson Fury - To Win Fight @ 10/11

I am leaning towards Tyson Fury because, as a kid, I was always told that a good big man will always beat a good little man, but I just don't know.

Look, if Oleksandr Usyk can pull this off then it would be remarkable, and he would possibly go down as the greatest boxer of all-time given he has stepped up in weights.

But, that said, I am still edging with Tyson because of the size difference, but absolutely nothing would surprise me on Saturday night.
