Where To Watch:
Why Bet on Tim Tszyu?
Tim Tszyu (21-0-0, 15 KOs) isn’t messing around here. He’d originally been scheduled to fight the unified champion of the division, Jermell Charlo, at the end of January.
Charlo broke his hand in sparring, putting pay to that. No one would have considered it odd if Tszyu sat on his promised shot at all the belts, at most taking a tune-up against a lighter opponent to keep busy.
Instead, he’s taking on one of the biggest challenges available to him. A win here gets him a WBO interim title, but no one’s going to consider him the real champion until he fights Charlo, so… it’s a risk.
Why Bet on Tony Harrison?
Harrison (29-3-1, 21 KOs) could rightly claim to come from a different world, boxing-wise.
No famous father to make his name and with no significant promotional backing or amateur achievements, he’s gotten to where he is pretty much by fighting anyone who’ll get in the ring with him.
This has led to his fair share of losses, but he also shocked Jermell Charlo the first time they fought, scoring a decision victory.
Those cards were controversial, and he lost the rematch by KO, but those performances and others have nonetheless proved he won’t be an easy out for anyone.
He’ll be hoping to upset the apple cart again and get a third shot at Charlo in the process.
Final Betting Analysis – Tim Tszyu vs. Tony Harrison
Tim Tszyu has a style you might find familiar, even if you’ve never seen him before. Not because of his father.
He’s just a textbook example of a solid, no-fancy-tricks pressure fighter. He has his flaws, for sure, but he’s the kind of opponent who’ll be a nightmare for anyone. Big, solid, and hard to keep clear of.
Harrison could almost be called the opposite of Tszyu. Not in the sense that he’s a pure outboxer, though he does do that.
Where Tszyu’s entire game plan is built to impose his style on an opponent, Harrison is much more reactive.
He’ll usually fight at the tempo his opponent gives him. That might make things tough for him because the usual best way to deal with fighters like Tszyu is to disrupt their plans.
All in all, it’s a big test for both men. If Harrison wins he’ll have to weather a storm to do it- but any win for Tszyu won’t be without learning a few lessons. It’s a tough one to predict, being such a disparate clash of styles, but it should be entertaining.
Where Harrison might come undone, though, is in the layers of his defense. As he is one of those fighters who typically need to reset after a couple of punches defended.
If any given exchange goes for much more than that, he starts to get a bit off-balance, and any shots landed will be more dangerous.
He’s also vulnerable while throwing his shots, and as mentioned, Tszyu is very dangerous in direct exchanges which makes the Soul Taker our betting pick for the fight.
If you bet $100 at a Tim Tszyu victory at -303 you’ll get $33 for a total payout of $133.
