|Round||Deontay Wilder Odds To Win||Tyson Fury Odds To Win|
Last year, Deontay Wilder thought he had wrapped up the win in the 12th round, with Tyson Fury seemingly down and out. But on the 9 count, Tury rose from the ground and took the fight back to Wilder, who was immediately on the ropes. This proves just how durable Tyson Fury is. He can last as long as he chooses to in the ring, and you have to think that the longer the bout goes on, the better the chance that Fury has of winning. But, Deontay Wilder will certainly fancy himself in the early rounds. Wilder possesses one of the most powerful punches in boxing and can end a fight in one punch at any point. So we are going to meet in the middle and back Wilder to win in the 6th round at 14/1. This gives Wilder plenty of time to wear Fury down and hit him with a finishing swing.
Since the first fight with Tyson Fury, Deontay Wilder has fought twice. His first was against Dominic Breazeale, and it took less than 3 minutes for Wilder to emerge from the ring as a winner. Wilder caught Breazeale with a strong right hook early on and the fight was over before it had even started. His next test was a lot tougher. Wilder set up another rematch, this time against Luis Ortiz at the MGM Grand. Ortiz looked like he might be able to end Wilder’s unbeaten record, but Wilder’s incredible strength won him the fight again. In the 7th round, with Ortiz winning on every judge’s card, Wilder knocked his opponent down. Ortiz never looked like recovering and Wilder earned his 41st KO.
Ahead of his fight with Tyson Fury, Wilder has made Fury aware that he was only just getting started in their first fight. Wilder broke his hand in the build up to the first fight, meaning he couldn’t throw as powerful a punch. He has even gone as far to say he was only at 50% heading into the first bout. Along with defending himself from the last fight, Wilder has again claimed there is ‘unfinished business’ and that this time, Fury won’t be able to get up. Wilder’s game plan is always to finish his opponent. That’s what makes him one of the most explosive fighters in boxing and it will be intriguing to see just how much more prepared he is ahead of this fight.
After the first fight, Tyson Fury felt hard done by for not being awarded the Championship belt. Despite the two knockdowns, Fury actually landed more punches than Wilder, and landed them at a higher percentage. Add on the fact that he out punched Wilder in 9 of the 12 rounds, then it’s tough to see how Fury didn’t come away with the win. Since that fight, Fury has dominated Tom Schwarz and Otto Wallin, before finally agreeing to the rematch with Wilder.
In the lead up to the rematch, Fury split with long time trainer Ben Davison before linking up with Javan Steward. Fury has also returned to Detroit’s Kronk Gym for the first time in 10 years as he looks to switch up his pre-fight routine. Fury has shocked some critics by claiming he expect to come into the fight at 270lbs, heavier than he was in the first fight. But regardless of his weight, those who have watched Fury in training have all commented on how prepared he looks. Rather than piling on the pounds for the sake of it, Fury looks to have a plan in mind. If he is planning to go punch for punch with Wilder, then this could be one of the most exciting fights in recent times.
Bet UK’s Headline Betting Tip
Technically, Fury is a better boxer than Wilder. But, there is also no denying that if it comes down to one punch, then Wilder is going to be the man who delivers it. If the last fight showed us anything, then we can expect Fury to survive anything Wilder throws at him, and we might even see more heavy hits from the Brit. If the fight does go the distance again, then we’d be surprised if the Championship belt didn't go to Fury.
