Deontay Wilder v Tyson Fury Betting Tips Explained


Has this fight come too early for Tyson Fury? That is the biggest question as he prepares to challenge unbeaten WBC heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder in Los Angeles.

The outspoken 30-year-old was on top of the world when he surprisingly ended Wladimir Klitschko’s dominance of the division in November 2015, but out-of-the-ring issues prevented him from ever defending his crowns and it was not until June of this year that he finally stepped back inside a professional boxing ring.

That night he recorded a farcical fourth-round stoppage win over Sefer Seferi who, in all honesty, had no right being in the ring with a former world champion, and he followed that up with a convincing but unspectacular decision win over Francesco Pianeta in August. Fury claimed afterwards that it was all about getting rounds under his belt against Pianeta, and having been joined by Wilder in the ring it was confirmed that he would be the next challenger to the American’s throne before the end of the year.

“We are two men who will fight anybody,” Fury said. “They called, I answered. I said 'send me a contract', they sent me a contract. I said 'yes' and now he gets his chance to fight the lineal heavyweight champion of the world. I got my rounds here tonight, but one thing I promise when I go to Las Vegas is I'm knocking you the f**k out.”

Wilder, of course, was not going to take that taunt laying down and told Fury that “he had better wake up and apologise” if he ever even dreamed of taking the WBC belt away from him, adding that the former heavyweight champion was going to find out “what it feels like to get hit by the ‘Bronze Bomber’” when the two men finally throw down.

Both men will continue to talk a good fight between now and fight night, but who will leave Los Angeles as the WBC heavyweight champion of the world, setting up a potential mega-money unification scrap with Anthony Joshua next year?

Let’s make no bones about it, Fury is the better boxer out of these two men. When it comes to movement, footwork and defence there is no denying that the British fighter has the edge. But when it comes to raw power, there are not many men on the planet who are in Wilder’s league. In 40 professional outings he has been taken the distance just once, by Bermane Stiverne back in 2015, and when the two men met again in 2017 Wilder was in no mood to put in a long shift. He destroyed the challenger inside a round and the line from Rocky IV sums it up best, “whatever he hits, he destroys”. But can he ‘destroy’ Fury?

For me Wilder is massively overrated. His record of opponents is hugely underwhelming and his technique is dreadful for a world champion. He relies on his violent KO power and size advantage to bully and knockout opponents, and on this night he will be the smaller man for once. The Fury of a couple of years ago would have been a great bet to frustrate and out-point the champion, but after such a lengthy absence from the ring and having faced nothing in the way of a test since returning, can we really expect so see that Fury turn up in LA?

I am not convinced despite Fury’s impressive efforts in shifting the weight he piled on during his absence from the sport. As the fight wears on ring rust and tiredness will creep into his game and when it does he will present the champion with an opening. When that happens I am backing Wilder to take it and improve his perfect record to 41-0.
