Fury vs Ngannou prediction and fight preview
This crossover event is a 10-round contest but it would be a huge shock if this fight were to go the distance.
Fury is the WBC heavyweight champion, although that title is not on then line on Saturday, and this is Ngannou’s boxing debut.
The Cameroonian departed the UFC as their heavyweight champion and was known as a knockout specialist in MMA. Ngannou clearly carries real power, but as a relative novice we may not get to see him make use of that on Saturday.
Fury cannot afford to lose here now he had a mega fight with Usyk lined up and he should be able to claim an early stoppage. Finding a good angle for value is tough here and picking a few individual rounds is one option, but the 11/4 on offer for a Fury knockout in the method of victory market stands out.
Fury is the best active heavyweight right now and should be able to carve out plenty of openings to land clean shots, and Ngannou won’t have faced anyone with his kind of power and accuracy previously, so Fury can record a knockout here rather than a TKO.
33/1 Fury vs Ngannou Boxing Treble Tip
Tyson Fury to win by KO
Vs Francis Ngannou
Fabio Wardley to win in rounds 7-12
Vs David Adeleye
British heavyweight champion Fabio Wardley is on the bill against compatriot David Adeleye in an intriguing contest. Wardley has 16 wins in as many fights and 15 of those have come via stoppages, while Adeleye is unbeaten after 12 fights and has 11 wins inside the distance. Wardley has the bigger names on his CV, however, and can justify heavy favouritism by claiming a stoppage win in the second half of the fight.
Joseph Parker to win by decision or technical decision
Vs Simon Kean
Former WBO champion Joseph Parker is on the bill as he takes on Canada’s Simon Kean. There is a gulf in terms of experience here as Kean, 34, has only fought outside of his native Canada once and Parker has been in with some of the biggest names in the division. The New Zealander has only stopped one of his last opponents, however, and Kean has just one defeat in 24 professional fights so Parker may need the judges here.
