Deontay Wilder vs. Tyson Fury Odds

Deontay Wilder vs. Tyson Fury Odds
On Saturday December 1st from the Staples Centre in Los Angeles, two undefeated Heavyweights collide when 40-0 Deontay Wilder faces his toughest opponent to date 27-0 Tyson Fury.

If Boxing was a dying sport than it was the current heavyweight crop who breathed life back into the game. Along with Anthony Joshua, Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder have resurrected Heavyweight Boxing. And as with any prize fight, online sports betting will play a large part in the fight’s overall appeal when two of them come face to face.

On Saturday December 1st, we will get to see two undefeated heavyweights touch gloves in what should be one of the biggest fights of the year. Deontay Wilder who is 40-0 in his professional career, and having won 39 of his fights via KO, will square off with 27-0 Tyson Fury who has won 19 of his fights via KO.

Tyson Fury

Tyson Fury aka the Gypsy King, was the man who officially ended the Klitschko era defeating Wladimir Klitschko in Germany in November 2015 claiming the WBO, WBA and IBF titles. He then took a two and a half year layoff due to mental health issues, before returning to two warm up fights in June and August of this year. Now he steps into the flames against the only real opponent he has seen in 3 years.

From Manchester, England, Fury is 30 years old, and stands 6’9″ with an 85 inch reach.

Deontay Wilder

From Tuscaloosa, Alabama, Deontay “The Bronze Bomber” Wilder will face his toughest opponent to date in Fury. Having won the Bronze medal in the 2008 Beijing Olympics and the WBC belt in 2015, Wilder has successfully defended his belt 7 times since.

32 years old, Wilder stands 6’7″ with an 83 inch reach.

Odds – Value available on either fighter

If you are looking to wager on Wilder you can get his odds at -138 currently on William Hill.

If you are backing Fury, BODOG currently has his line at +145

Prediction

Wilder possesses knockout power in both hands. With an ability to create awkward angles and ranges to defend against, he will look to use these tools to outscore Fury early, and eventually hurt him in the later rounds. Wilder is the better fighter on current form at the moment and of the two men is in better fighting shape all around.

However, Fury is the bigger and longer man and will look to keep Wilder at a range where he is comfortable. Also in Fury’s arsenal is a tactical ability to switch from a conventional stance to southpaw. If he opts to switch stances at any point it will be to create more scoring opportunities for him and less for Wilder. 

And it’s fury ability to be the cagier fighter that will ultimately win him the day in what will be a great event.

PICK: Fury +145 at William Hill
