Tyson Fury vs Deontay Wilder fight picks, predictions and betting preview: Gypsy King to keep the crown

Tyson Fury (right) and Deontay Wilder

Deontay Wilder is hoping the third time is the charm when he faces Tyson Fury again with the WBC and Ring magazine heavyweight titles on the line in Las Vegas on Saturday (ESPN+ & Fox Sports PPV, approx. 11pm ET).

The pair fought out a controversial draw in their first meeting in December 2018, but Fury was the clear winner of the rematch in February 2020, when the British fighter forced a 7th-round stoppage.

Fury (30-0-1) is the favorite to end the trilogy with a second win, at -290 odds with FanDuel Sportsbook, while Wilder (42-1-1) can be supported at +235 odds with DraftKings Sportsbook.

Tyson Fury vs Deontay Wilder fight prediction

Tyson Fury to win by KO/TKO (-110, currently boosted to +160 at FanDuel Sportsbook)

Deontay Wilder looks set to face the full force of Tyson Fury in their heavyweight battle at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.

Fury has been one of the sport’s most astonishing comeback stories after his issues outside the ring and he can now claim to be the best heavyweight on the planet. Expect him to show that in this fight and take out Wilder without the need for the judges to get involved.

The two previous Fury v Wilder fights showed where the balance of power sits in this matchup, even if the first bout was a draw. To most observers it should have gone the way of the Gypsy King, who astonishingly looked the winner despite twice hitting the canvas.

Fury’s rematch with Wilder last year was far more clear-cut, and the decision of Fury to partner with trainer SugarHill Steward seemed to make a real difference as he took the fight to the American. Wilder was out on his feet and it is difficult to see how he can turn the form around.

The Bronze Bomber’s poor movement was one reason he lost the last fight and, with Fury likely to adopt the same approach again, this looks a poor matchup for Wilder.

The best chance of a Wilder upset is for the home fighter to land a massive punch. He has that in his arsenal with 41 wins in 42 by stoppage, but Fury used his right hand superbly to negate that weapon last time.

Fury is an awkward opponent for anyone because of his size and power and he keeps improving, hitting from angles unlike any other heavyweight. It takes a major defensive effort to stop Fury and Wilder is likely to be drained long before the final bell is due.

A Fury win by KO or TKO is -110 with FanDuel Sportsbook, but the odds are currently boosted to +160, which looks well worth taking advantage of.
