Tyson Fury vs. Deontay Wilder 3 prediction
They have fought for 18.5 rounds and what we have seen is Tyson Fury clearly outpacing Deontay Wilder and only getting better after each round. His complete dominance of Wilder in the rematch meant that Fury had found out and Wilder had not. Regardless of the excuses Wilder put into the atmosphere, all we can do is the results and the story.
History tells us that Deontay Wilder has a way of winning a fight and Fury can win in whatever way works for him on any given night. The idea of Wilder winning a decision is highly unlikely, and while it is at a tasty +1600, it’s not worth it unless you have money to spend.
Fury is the rightful favorite, but at -350 he’s a bit wide against an opponent with a nuke in his fists that could detonate at any moment. Of course, Fury was able to get off the mat in the first fight and didn’t let Wilder touch him with anything remotely dangerous in the rematch.

That said, Fury could certainly knock out Wilder again, but there should be an expectation that Wilder will improve enough to stay upright. There are two valuable lines and that’s Fury by decision at +270 and Wilder by stoppage at +310. Although some may feel that the third fight will be a repeat performance by Fury, Wilder has his back to the wall and will likely approach this fight a bit more cautiously using his jab and trying to control the distance.
Fury is a phenomenal fighter and he won’t put himself in danger unnecessarily. He may want to push Wilder away again, but he’s aware of what Wilder brings to the table and can’t expect his opponent to be the same fighter he was last February. But the reality is that Wilder doesn’t throw enough punches, he uses his offense as his defense, and most importantly, he faces an opponent who is bigger than him and knows how to use it.
Tyson Fury is the complete package. He’s a healthy player on defense, has fantastic footwork and has power in both hands. Wilder just needs one shot, but even then there is no guarantee that he will take out Fury. Wilder’s pride is at stake and this time he will not let his corner throw in the towel. He will leave it all in the ring and will probably come up short by decision.
