Boxing Night: Deontay Wilder vs Tyson Fury 2 Odds & Picks

Deontay “The Bronze Bomber” Wilder and Tyson “Gypsy King” Fury went to war in early December 2018 in a highly entertaining fight that ended in a draw. The two appeared destined for an immediate rematch but politics and money got in the way so Fury took on two fights, both victories, in the meantime. Wilder also has two triumphs since he last saw Fury, with two more knockouts over Dominic Breazeale and Luis Ortiz. The rematch is set to take place on February 22, at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

On December 1, 2018, Tyson Fury stepped into the ring at the Staples Center in Los Angeles with nothing to lose. Despite the referee’s count probably being a little too long, it was nothing short of heroic.  When the judges’ scorecards were read out, it was difficult to see how Wilder deserved the draw. Boxing fans were deprived of witnessing one of the greatest comebacks in the history of the sport. I’m pretty sure Fury needs no motivation when it comes to the rematch.

Prediction

My first prediction is that this fight is going to be very similar to the first installment of Wilder vs. Fury. Expect Fury on his toes, prancing like a cat, while Wilder swings his rocket of a right hand into the air. My second prediction is that Fury wins every single round until the ninth, without taking much damage. His lateral movement and sweet execution of the jab will keep Wilder at bay.

Prediction number three is that Wilder gets to Fury at some point in the ninth or tenth, leaving Gypsy King fans feeling very nervous indeed. Wilder will either rock Fury or send him to the canvas. My penultimate prediction sees Fury catching Wilder with a big shot as the American throws everything he has at his opponent.  And my final prediction is that Tyson Fury wins the fight on the judges’ scorecards, but there is a little controversy with one of the scores. It wouldn’t be a massive, money-spinning fight without a little drama, would it?

Pick: Tyson Fury -115
