Very similar to his final fight, Fury will be the odds on favourite (best price 1/25) and ought to be far too much for his competent but overmatched competition. As a punter it is easy to get disheartened with Fury competitions, not least because they make when the markets are so unapproachable punting somewhat more difficult. ???? There is some significance to be consumed in this fight to flip our pennies into fat.
Last time outwe saw a much more spiteful and competitive Fury. He revealed footwork and his elusiveness but also revealed a more offensive style that has been Fury’s way. A number of that will be down to the limits of Tom Schwarz allowing Fury to tee . Otto Wallin is certainly overmatched, but he’s more competent than the final opponent of Fury. The Swede is sound and a southpaw, even though unspectacular. For example shedding to Anthony Joshua online points he got a decent number of bouts under his belt prior to turning pro. It should introduce more of a competition than his previous departure although fury should deal with his opponent.
Despite the aggressive screen against Schwarz, Fury hasn’t become a punching heavyweight and that he normally takes a Bit More time to break down his opposition. ?? Of his last 12 stoppage victories, 8 have come after the fourth round. This fight looks like it will follow that trend and then head to the center and perhaps even the later rounds. Tyson Fury in the next half of this struggle (rounds 7-12) is a fantastic price (15/8 using Sky Bet); as is Fury to win in rounds 5-8 (21/10 with Paddy Power) or rounds 7-9 (7/2 together with Betfred). Even the 15/8 on a 6 round spread feels a price that is better especially considering Wallin will offer offensively and defensively.
Away from the large battle, there’s a punt to be inserted on an underdog. Ryan Garcia is a highly rated young fighter who’s developed a significant following. But much of the following is driven by his self-promoting Instagram and boyband looks rather than his boxing. There has been evidence of flaws in his fashion and some footage of him fighting in sparring. He’s taken a step this weekend up in fighting Avery Sparrow, who got 11 battles however, has conquered the Henry Lundy already. There was 14/1 floating about on Sparrow; regrettably that cost has long gone, but 10/1 remains available (Sporting Bet) and can be well worth a nibble about the upset.
