The Big Prediction
It’s impossible to ignore what we witnessed in 2020. It took Tyson Fury just seven rounds to dismantle Deontay Wilder, stopping him via TKO having floored the former champion numerous times.
A repeat of a Tyson Fury stoppage is currently priced as short as 10/11, and it’s hard to look much past that.
Still, Deontay Wilder has been deep in camp throughout 2021 looking to learn from his mistakes and hone his unrivaled power under the tutelage of new-trainer and former opponent Malik Scott.
A Wilder victory is sizeable at 5/2, with a stoppage victory currently sitting at 7/2.
Wilder won’t have lost any of his power and is still capable of hurting Fury. Both men have dropped each other, and backing both men not to hear the final bell is priced at 2/5 (Fight not to go the Distance).
We can’t ignore the ‘repeat’ here, and if Wilder isn’t switched on from the opening bell then it could be even quicker this time around.
Tyson Fury in Rounds 4-6 is perfectly priced at 9/2.
Third Time’s A Charm
Fury and Wilder have already shared close to 19 rounds over the past few years and the picture looks a lot clearer than it did after their first contest in 2018.
A fully fit and focused Tyson Fury made light work of Deontay Wilder last year, with questions arising as to why Wilder would even want the trilogy.
Whether it’s for monetary reasons or pride, Wilder has his work cut out in Las Vegas if he is to right the wrongs of his solitary career defeat.
Both of their previous contests made huge headlines, for different reasons, and we’ll be hoping for the same in October.
Wilder’s punch-resistance was close to non-existent in his second fight with Fury.
If the “Bronze Bomber” is to improve, then slipping Fury’s attacks and finding the range with his counter will be key.
Fury was able to manhandle Wilder through large pockets the rematch and his huge right hand was neutralized by an inability to set himself correctly.
Wilder isn’t known for his elusive footwork, but he’s going improve his defence work if he’s to survive against this version of Fury.
20 months out of the ring isn’t ideal for a man who needs constant stimulation like Tyson Fury.
There haven’t been any signs of Fury slipping into old habits, but whether the hunger and desire still remains to beat a man he has already bested remains to be seen.
Fury is a unique fighter. He struggled against Otto Wallin when his eye wasn’t completely on the ball, and with talks of a super-fight with Anthony Joshua still rumbling around the corner, is there a danger he will underestimate Wilder?
