The boxing world has been waiting to see Tyson Fury’s next move. Having seen off the challenge of Deontay Wilder in a trilogy of fights that saw him come out the victor in two and a controversial draw in the third, Fury’s next steps were not necessarily all that clear. Would a mouth-watering fight with Anthony Joshua come to fruition? Would Fury test his wits against the man who most recently beat Joshua – Oleksandr Usyk? Could he even retire?
Well, we finally have our answer. The self-appointed Gipsy King will settle a bitter and long feud with fellow Brit Dillian Whyte.
Whyte, the interim WBC World Champion, heads into this heavyweight clash having avenged his defeat to Alexander Povetkin with a 4th round stoppage in his last fight. Whyte only has two defeats on his card. Once to Povetkin, and once to Anthony Joshua. Fury, of course, is undefeated and puts his unblemished record on the line when these two face off in the ring at Wembley Stadium on April 23rd.

Tyson Fury vs Dillian Whyte Bets
There is nothing quite like betting on a big fight, and they don’t come much bigger than a Heavyweight World Title fight. There are plenty of engaging markets for bettors to get involved with in any big boxing fight, and you’ll be sure to find some unique proposition bets on a fight like this. So, let’s take a closer look at some of the markets you might want to use for the Tyson Fury vs Dillian Whyte fight.
Fight winner is the most popular betting market. It is simple, easy to understand, and can bring significant profits if the right call is made. All you need to do is select who you think will win the fight out of Whyte or Fury, and should your choice be correct, your bet pays out.
Round betting allows players to bet on what round they think the bout will end in. You can select any of the 12 rounds, and should you choose correctly, your bet will pay out. Early rounds are very high odds, so a quick stoppage can pay out some impressive profits.
Method of Victory
The method of victory market gives bettors the opportunity to wager on how they think the fight will end. Will it be a knockout, a split decision or a unanimous points decision? Different fighters have different styles, making each outcome more or less likely.
Group Round Betting
As well as betting on individual rounds that a fight might end in, you can have grouped rounds. For example, you may bet on rounds 1-3 or 4-6. Of course, this increases your likelihood of winning as there is more chance of it ending over three rounds than one, but of course, the odds reflect this. While they may be shorter, they are still a profitable market to use.
You can use the under/over markets in boxing to bet on whether you think there will be more or less rounds than a specific number. For example, if you think Whyte v Fury might finish in the 8th round, you could bet on over 7 rounds.
Fight to go the distance?
You can bet on whether you think there will be a stoppage or not. The simple ‘Fight to go the distance?’ market means you just need to bet on ‘yes’ if you think the two fighters will be separated on points or ‘no’ if you think one of the boxers will land a knockout.
Fight Predictions & Betting Tips
So, which way is this fight heading? Let’s look at some of our best tips for the upcoming heavyweight title fight.
- Fury heads into the bout the favourite with 888 Sports pricing the Gipsy King at 2/15 while Whyte is the outsider at 9/2.
Fury is a very technical fighter. His speed and footwork contradict his size and frame. Nimble and tactical, Fury usually looks to outbox his opponent rather than land the killer punch.
- Fury to add another points win to his tally is 19/10 with LeoVegas, and this looks well priced.
On the flip side, we have discussed that despite his height and weight, Fury surprisingly isn’t really known as being a knockout artist. 22 knockouts from 32 fights is not a record to be sniffed out, but he lacks the real knockout power that many heavyweights have. That said, Fury has scored two late stoppages against Wilder and once against Chisora. Despite none of them being ‘clean’ knockouts, he did enough for the fight to end, and that’s all that matters when it comes to betting.
- If you fancy Fury to prove too much for Whyte and to seal it late with a knockout in rounds 7-12, you can find odds of 6/4 with ComeOn, which is a tempting price.
Whyte certainly has the ability and knockout power to prove a problem for the undefeated Fury. Povetkin can attest to that, having hit the canvas in the fourth round in their rematch last year. It’s hard to see Whyte outbox Fury and LeoVegas’ odds reflect that at 13/1. However, he can certainly land a power punch that could put an end to the fight.
- Whyte to win by KO or TKO at 21/4 could prove to be good value.
Widely regarded as the best heavyweight in the world, Tyson Fury has had immense highs and terrible lows. Glory in the ring has followed him everywhere he has gone, but life has been tough for the Gipsy King out of the ring. A stable environment looks to have him on the right track, and he will be hoping his positive mindset can help him brush aside Whyte. Fury is undefeated, boasting an almost perfect record. That controversial draw against Wilder in their first fight is the only slight blemish.

Dillian Whyte earned a good reputation as a boxer earlier in his career. A total of 13 knockouts in his first 16 fights proved he was a dangerous opponent. He has had to bounce back as he fell to knockout defeat to fellow Brit Anthony Joshua in 2015. Having re-established himself as one of the biggest names in the division, a big clash with Povetkin awaited. Despite suffering a knockout defeat, Whyte had looked very bright in the fight, and it came as no surprise that he won the rematch. Now, the biggest fight of his life awaits him against a long-time foe.
