Deontay Wilder vs Tyson Fury 2: Bet Today USA Boxing Predictions

WBC heavyweight world titleholder Deontay Wilder will meet lineal heavyweight champion Tyson Fury this Saturday, in an explosive rematch of their widely criticised controversial draw in 2018. The two have publicly stated their diverse opinion one another and have citied individual fight strategies ahead of their blockbuster bout this Saturday evening.

Both men have unblemished fight records and will be eager to inflict a loss on one another’s card. Since their last meeting, Wilder (42-0-1 KOs) and Fury (29-0-1 KOs) have won two respective fights each. This battle of the brawn is the showdown the boxing world has been waiting for and both men have doubled down to settle this final bout.

Wilder has been busy since their last clash, scoring a tremendous first-round KO of Dominic Breazeale in May and six months later, Wilder had unfished business with Luis Ortiz that he concluded in 7 rounds to put the rematch to bed.

Fury has also been industrious, as the Gypsy King dispatched Tom Schwarz in two rounds in June, displaying graceful footwork and some silky boxing skills. Fury’s next punching bag came in the form of a durable Otto Wallin in September, when Fury suffered a cut in the third round before escaping with a unanimous decision victory.

What’s on the line?

This Saturday’s showdown will grab the world’s attention and is the most consequential fight the sport has seen in decades, the last time boxing put on a heavyweight bout truly worthy of global intrigue. Both titans know the magnitude of this fight, a true fight or fall battle of legacies.

At stake for the Bronze Bomber who hails from Alabama and has arguably the most powerful right hand in boxing history, is an 11th straight title defence. If Wilder can combat an in-form Fury and hold on to his belt, then he would surpass the mark set by the great Muhammed Ali, who defended his belt ten times ultimately losing it to Leon Spinks in 1978.

For Fury, a fundamentally gifted boxer, who is outlandishly spoken, possessing great speed, precision and sterling footwork, he has a colossal amount to lose. The defending lineal titleholder is fighting for Wilder’s belt and his superlative redemption story. Soon after Fury reached the top of the sport by defeating Klitschko, he fell from grace and battled weight gain, drug addiction and mental illness that derailed his life. A victory for Fury would mean that his redemption story will be complete.

Where is the fight?

The fight is being held in MGM Grand Garden in Las Vegas.

What time is the fight on?

The fight is expected to start at 9 pm local time.

Predictions

Boxing predictions ensure that the market will be fluctuating pre-fight after the weigh-in. If the Bronze Bomber is anywhere near the 220-pound range, he could become the favourite. In their first fight, Wilder stunned the world weighing in at a meagre 212 pounds.

Our prediction

To go the distance (+120)

If Fury weighs near the 270-mark, then the boxing lines would climb in the Gypsy King’s favor. Regardless of the weigh-in results, Bet Today USA gives Wilder the edge. Since battling Fury, the American has shown a steady improvement steamrolling Breazeale and Ortiz in impressive fashion.

Our prediction

Fury to win by unanimous decision (+240)

Fury, on the other hand, has traded leather with mediocre opponents since his draw with Wilder. Wallin’s 12-round scare last September might be an indication that if a subpar opponent can push Fury to the bitter end then an in-form, dangerous Wilder could be devastating.

Fury is a master-class boxer and will be looking to take this bout down to the scorecards, but will have to be ever-vigilant of Wilder’s power and KO skills.
