Fury starts to climb the latter again

Back in March this year Fury had to vacate his British heavyweight title. That was because of injury according to Fury’s camp. Fury has lost two of his last four bouts now. The first of those was a shot at the WBO heavyweight title against Joseph Parker, the New Zealander winning by a majority decision in that one. The second of those defeats was against Kubrat Pulev who Fury simply had no answer too. The British fighter stuck out the distance but was sorely outboxed.

8/5

On his return to action following that October 2018 defeat against the Bulgarian, Fury faced Canada’s Chirs Norrad in Manchester. Fury finished the fight in the second round taking his career record to W22 D2. Just 12 of those 22 victories in professional career has Fury won by knockout. He claims to be one of the top five heavyweight fighters in the world. He needs to get some titles going to back that bold claim up. Fury, cousin of Tyson Fury, is 1/4 to stop his opponent in this fight, which does look a bit lopsided to be fair* (Betting odds taken from Bet365 on July 11th, 2019 at 4:41 am).

Who is Samuel Peter?

Sam Peter is a Nigerian American fighter who has been up against some of the best in the world and is a former WBC heavyweight titleholder. The 38-year-old though is heavy underdog here. He has had just the two fights since losing a fight for the vacant WBC intercontinental heavyweight title in December 2016 against Kubrat Pulev. He lost his most recent fight which was just in April this year against Mario Heredia. So that’s a W1 L1 record he has posted in the last two and a half years.

Peter was up against Vitali Klitschko in his WBC title defence in October 2008 and Peter lost that in the eighth round. He also took on Wladimir Klitschko twice in his career as well. Peter lost both of those as well. So he can certainly hang his gloves up knowing that he has been up against some of the legends of this division. Peters holds a 37-7 career record and he has been globetrotting between Germany, the USA and Mexico in his last six fights. Now it’s off to Saudi Arabia.

Prediction

The days of standing toe to toe with the Klitchkos is long gone for Peter. He’s past his prime and shouldn’t have too much left in his arsenal to trouble Fury. It’s not as if Peter was a particularly accurate puncher even at the peak of his career. This is the type of fight that Fury should be putting an impressive performance on the board. Hughie Fury in round 1-5 at 3/2* (Betting odds taken from Bet365 on July 11th, 2019 at 4:41 am).
