Boxing Betting: Fury eager to take on Abell this month

Tyson FuryBoxing betting fans found out that Tyson Fury’s return to the ring will be against American Joey Abell after Gonzalo Omar Basile, his original opponent, pulled out due to a lung infection.

Pay per head sportsbooks saw that after David Haye pulled out of two scheduled bouts, Fury waited almost 10 months for a heavyweight fight, and he will take on Abell at the Copper Box Arena on February 15 in London – in a match where the boxing odds will be very closely followed.

The Minnesota fighter has 28 knockouts in his 29 victories, but boxing betting fans saw that he lost three of his last five bouts.

Price per head services learned that Kubrat Pulev, who’s a rival contender for Fury and makes very good boxing odds, stopped Abell in five rounds, but he will not take his replacement foe lightly.

“Abell is big and he can punch – just what I want on my comeback,” Fury told espn.co.uk.

“One thing I do respect about him is his power. He’s got a great knockout record and in the heavyweights it only takes one shot to turn things around.”

Boxing betting fans know that Fury is on a collision course with Chisora, who is expected to face him in a rematch in the summer, and the Londoner who’s a favourite with many pay per head sportsbooks has also been given a change of opponent.

Kevin Johnson stepped in to take on Chisora at late notice, and Fury has plenty of respect for the American, having claimed in 2012 a cagey points win over him, and impressing many boxing betting fans in the process.

Fury found it tough to break Johnson’s defences, but he and many pay per head sportsbooks believe that Chisora will emerge triumphant.

“I expect it to be a very good fight but a fit Dereck Chisora should beat a Kevin Johnson who’s only had a few weeks notice,” said Fury.

“But if Kevin had ten weeks notice, ‘Del Boy’ would be in trouble cos ‘Kingpin’s’ a helluva fighter; a master boxer with a pack of tricks. But, like when he fought me, Kevin’s not really had the time to get himself right.”
