It’s a done deal! Tyson Fury will enter the boxing ring in Los Angeles on 1st December 2018 and face off against 40-0 KO specialist Deontay Wilder in one of the biggest UK versus US boxing matches in the past decade.
At the time of writing the Tyson Fury vs Deontay Wilder betting odds have the unbeaten American as the -162.50 favourite at bet365*, with Fury trading as the +130 underdog with the same online sportsbook.
The Staples Centre in LA is one of the biggest sporting venues in the world and the fight will be aired on Showtime ‘Pay Per View’, with the ring walk-ons due at around 7.30pm local time. It will certainly be an event not to missed.
Few would argue that Tyson Fury is the better technical boxer of this pair. His British pedigree and the overall record shows how gifted he is in terms of pure boxing ability. The aim of the game is to hit and not get hit – Fury is a master at that game, as he showed when he beat the great Wladimir Klitschko back in 2015, to win the unified Heavyweight titles of the world. Of course, we all know he’s had his personal battles with depression and addiction since then, but the ‘Gypsy King’ has been starting to look more his old self in interviews, in press conferences and on social media.
So who will win?
Tyson Fury has had two warm up fights against vastly inferior opposition in June and again in August of this year. Many fans felt let down, but these were simply tune up fights, while Fury builds up his fitness and sharpness levels to the ones required to take on a challenge such as Deontay Wilder.
Make no mistake, Tyson Fury vs Deontay Wilder is the biggest fight of his career to date, for more reason than just maintaining his perfect 27-0 record. It means a return to professional greatness, it means beating his personal demons and of course, it means earning a super fight against Anthony Joshua in 2019.
The Tyson Fury vs Deontay Wilder Betting odds may have Fury as the slight underdog here, but this is an absorbing clash of styles and purist boxing fans will want to have Fury on their side against the Bronze Bomber.
Deontay Wilder enters this fight with an immaculate 40-0 record that includes 39 knockouts. He is a vicious and wild finisher, with loads of guts and class to boot. This will be Wilder’s 4th fight since 2017, and he’s coming off a March win over Luis Ortiz – so he’s much the more active fighter at the top level of late.
Wilder found a way to dig deep and get the victory against Ortiz having been rocked in early rounds, showing he is well able to recover from a stiff punch although Fury is not known for his punching power.
The 33-year-old American stands at a towering 6’ 7”, has an 83-inch reach and an orthodox stance, so is every inch the Fury’s equal in terms of size and range. Wilder has now produced stoppages in each of his last seven fights and 10 of his last 13 fights have ended in the ninth round or earlier. However, Wilder can be a bit sloppy, as he doesn’t have the best footwork and his defence has holes, so Fury will be looking to exploit that over the course of the 12 round World title bout.
