Tyson Fury vs. Derek Chisora 3: Who is the favorite!

#Physical Condition

Tyson Fury is only 34 years old and has a height of 6 feet, 9 inches. On the other hand, Derek Chisora is 38 years old and has a height of 6 feet, 2 inches. So it is clear that Fury has a clear age and height advantage over Chisora.

Fury has been in tremendous shape throughout his boxing career. The gypsy king is famous for his defensive style and for his ability to throw jabs in crucial moments. His defensive play made the opponent suffer from throwing punches, and his agility made them tired.

Considering the stats, Tyson Fury has a way better physical condition and fighting style than Derek Chisora.

#Experience

Fury made his debut on December 6, 2008, at the age of just 20 years old. After that, the gypsy king appeared in 33 clashes and remained undefeated. In his professional boxing journey, Fury won the world heavyweight title twice, and the scariest part is that he knocked out his opponent 23 times.

Chisora made his professional boxing debut on February 17, 2007, at the age of 23 years old. Del Boy has been featured in the ring 45 times and won the clashes 33 times with a knockout percentage of 70%, but he has never won a major title in his career.

Based on the numbers, Chisora has more experience than Fury, but when you look at the list of his opponents, the "gypsy king" is a dangerous fighter to face.

#Last 5 fight results

Tyson Fury never lost a fight in his professional career; in his last five battles, he faced off against Dillian Whyte, Deontay Wilder twice, Otto Wallin, and Tom Schwarz. Of these last five fights, Fury won thrice by technical knockout, once by unanimous decision, and once by knockout.

Although Chisora holds a poor record of just 2 wins out of his last 5 ring appearances, Del Boy lost these clashes against big names like Olyksander Usyk and Joseph Parker.

After analyzing the last five fights, it is clear that Fury has a better chance of retaining the title.

#Previous Face offs

The first time The Gypsy King fought Del Boy was on July 23, 2011, at Wembley Arena in London, England. Fury beat Chisora by unanimous decision and won the British and Commonwealth heavyweight titles.

On November 29, 2014, at ExCeL in London, England, this deadly duo fought each other for the second time. During this fight, Fury won the European, WBO International, and British heavyweight titles, which were all up for grabs before.

Considering all the factors, it is so easy to predict that the upcoming title clash between Tyson Fury and Derek Chisora will be an easy victory for the Gypsy King. As it is the comeback fight of Tyson Fury, it has an actual chance to outperform the MMA odds for Stephen Thompson vs. Kevin Holland, which will occur on the same day.
