THE two tallest heavyweights in history go head to head in a huge Saturday night of boxing with the world titles on the line.

Defending champ Wladimir Klitschko – two inches shorter than 6ft 9in challenger Tyson Fury – has the experience and plenty of power, boasting a 64-3 record and last being stopped 11 years ago.

Tonight's showdown in Dusseldorf is Fury's first shot at the world title and the British giant has won all 24 of his fights to date, 18 by KO, although he has never faced an opponent of Klitschko's calibre.

Fury has been floored twice before, by Steve Cunningham in 2013 and Neven Pajkic four years ago. Both Klitschko and Fury's gameplans rely heavily on the jab and whoever utilises it best tonight will have a major bearing on the outcome.

Fury has youth on his side and at 27 is 12 years younger than the champ. He certainly talks a good game but I'm not convinced he's good enough to beat the Ukrainian who I fancy to win inside the distance.

William Hill report that British punters have been piling into Fury who is 9-2 at Skybet to pull off a major shock. Hills say 73 per cent of bets placed with them have been for Fury, including a monster £25,000 wager from a Manchester-based punter.

Hills spokesman Rupert Adams said: “Much to our surprise and contrary to almost all boxing commentators opinions, fans are blindly backing Tyson Fury as if he can't lose.”

Klitschko is just 1-4 (Coral) to successfully defend his titles while the draw is a 25-1 chance. Coral report their most popular bet has been for Klitschko to win inside 12 rounds at evens. Spokesman John Hill added: “Not many punters are giving Fury a chance but it is the heavyweight division and we've seen far bigger upsets, most notably when Buster Douglas went off at 50-1 to beat Mike Tyson.”

    Fair play to Tyson Fury. He deserved to win but boy oh boy has the Heavyweight division ever been as poor?

    Anthony Joshua will destroy Fury..GUARANTEED !!!!!!!

      nazulus, it’s not what the experts are saying tonight but would be a massive fight.

    • u2me413 3 years ago

      nazalus i think you have left out the namme of the guy who would hammer both Fury and Johua..Deontay Wilder with the record of 35 wins from 35 fights and 34 by KO and these against far superior fighters than those two have met.

      • nazalus 3 years ago

        U2me413,December 12th you will see an awesome fighter in Anthony Joshua.Granted his fights have been of lesser talent,but does’nt every fighter start at the bottom?? Wilder may be of great talent,but in my opinion,Joshua will floor the guy before the final round…

    In the 10th round I got Fury at 2.36 draw no bet with William Hill, got right on it and in the last round he was 2.60 absolute shocker from whoever was running that for WH, almost felt like I was robbing them for a change haha

    I watched the fight,total borefest.Hardly a punch was thrown ,only in the final 2 rounds did it liven up.Fury looked the best out the two fighters.Although,he did get deducted 1 point for punching Klitchko on the back of his head,he still won with 115-112,,,115-112,,,116-111……Fight was abysmal.Glad i never paid £15 for it,bless you periscopers for broadcasting for free…As i said,if Anthony Joshua gets to fight Fury,it’ll be a stroll in the park for Joshua.I do not rate Fury as a champion,especially of the world.
