This weekend brings a rare event for ESPN and worldwide viewers, as it's not often that an Englishman, let alone an English heavyweight, tops a big fight bill in Las Vegas. That rarity has come this week, as the man who holds the lineal claim to the heavyweight crown, Tyson Fury, faces a fellow unbeaten fighter from Germany, the untested Tom Schwarz.
Normally a showdown between unbeaten fighters provides viewers with the burning question: Who is going to win? However, it isn't really the case on this occasion. Although both fighters are unbeaten, that is where the similarity ends.
Let's take a look at where the betting value lies in this fight.
Fury (27-0-1, 19 KOs) has already signed for a rematch with "Bronze Bomber" Deontay Wilder for the WBC title. The first fight ended with the only blemish on Fury's résumé, a split draw in December in Los Angeles. Many observers, myself included, thought Fury had done enough to win the decision, even if he did receive a slightly long count when after being knocked down by a booming right hand from Wilder.
