Tomorrow night, from Wembley Stadium in London, England, we will be treated to the biggest boxing match of 2017. After all of the anticipation of the Klitschko vs Fury rematch over the past year, it’s just nice to finally have some resolution and to see the legend Klitschko back in the ring fighting for the title. Klitschko is actually the underdog in this fight, which is rare territory for him, but Anthony Joshua is the new breed of heavyweight and many people believe it is his time to reign supreme over the boxing world for years to come.

I can really see this fight going either way, which is why I’m leaning towards Klitschko based on the odds. If he can get his jab working early he can set the tone and use his mobility to avoid Joshua’s attacks while connecting with his heavy jab and solid right hand. For Klitschko the best defense will be a strong offense in this fight, so he needs to let his hands go, but if he does that I do believe he has enough left in the tank to stay atop the boxing mountain for at least a few more fights.
Let’s not forget that Klitschko has not been TKO’d in over 13 years and I have no reason to really believe his chin will fail him here. I’m taking the dog in this very intriguing fight that I’m very much looking forward to.
Play: Klitschko 3.25
As for the props, the one I like the best is the fight going the distance. I think Klitschko could establish his jab and use it to control this fight from the outset. Like I said above, Klitschko has a tremendous chin, his last two fights have each gone the distance and although Joshua has always finished his fights quickly, I think that has a lot to do with the level of competition.
This is the biggest boxing fight of the year, so be sure to tune in on Saturday night and get your bets in!
