Tyson Fury vs Deontay Wilder 3 Betting Preview & Odds (World Heavyweight Boxing, October 9)
English professional boxer Tyson Fury faces American counterpart Deontay Wilder in an extremely delayed yet eagerly anticipated rematch. Billed the ‘Once and For All’ fight, the World Boxing Council (WBC) and the Ring’s heavyweight belts are on the line as Tyson Fury, and Deontay Wilder go up against each other.

There is plenty of backstory to this fight, and it is the accumulation of incidents leading up to the battle that increases its importance manifolds. Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder first fought nearly 3 years ago, in December 2018. Amidst significant controversy, no winner was picked at the end of the fight, and a draw was adjudged. Although most people believed Fury had done enough to be crowned as the winner, a rematch was eventually agreed upon. According to the Las Vegas bookmakers, while Deontay Wilder headed into the rematch as the favourite, Fury dominated, winning via a 7th-round technical knockout as Wilder’s team threw in the towel.
After facing defeat, Wilder and his team initiated a contractual rematch clause the next month, but the fight never took place for one reason or another. The COVID-19 pandemic was central to it, with Tyson Fury himself testing positive at a time. However, after what feels like a never-ending wait, the pair will finally meet at the specified date and location to settle it once and for all.

Fury Wilder Betting Tips
A lot is at stake as Tyson Fury, and Deontay Wilder face off in Las Vegas this October. Fights of this stature often tend to go either way, but here are our top 3 picks to help you make the ideal wager:
- Fury to win after being knocked down – (+400)
Tyson Fury is undoubtedly the favourite to win the fight. He has shown plenty of understanding of Wilder’s fighting style in their 2 previous meetings and has dominated proceedings. However, Deontay Wilder showed in the pair’s first fight that he has what it takes to land a blow or 2 on his opponent. Wilder knows that he has to be at his best to stand a chance against Fury with the battle of words that preceded the fight. Under the circumstances, it is expected that Wilder will be able to knock Fury down at least once in the contest since that is the American’s trademark method of asserting his authority over his rival. That said, Fury should come out on top as far as the result of the whole fight is concerned.
- Fight to go 12 rounds – (+160)
Neither of these 2 boxers is known for their endurance inside the Ring, but there is reason to believe that caution might be displayed from both Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder given what’s at stake. Both of these boxers haven’t fought professionally for well over a year, so it would be understandable if they spent the first couple of rounds getting familiar with each other’s style. In such an event, the fight going to 12 rounds shouldn’t be a major surprise. Live bets can also be considered for this tip.
- Fury to win by unanimous decision – (+400)
With Deontay Wilder not spending much time training with new coach Malik Scott, his fight against Tyson Fury may not be the ideal event to test this new partnership out for the first time. Wilder has enough confidence in himself not to let a repeat of their second fight happen this time around, so he should do enough to last the entirety of the match. Wilder isn’t used to seeing his fights go all the way. Although Fury isn’t hugely experienced in that regard either, the stats show that 80% of his fights that went all the way ended in him being declared the winner via a unanimous decision.
Tyson Fury vs. Deontay Wilder – Final Prediction
Tyson Fury’s excellent record against Deontay Wilder is something to consider seriously when predicting the winner of this fight. Wilder will not be the same boxer he was in their second meeting, but would he be improved enough on time with a new coach to have his revenge? Only time will tell. On paper, Tyson Fury to be the winner of the fight seems like a safe bet to make.
Final prediction: Tyson Fury to win the fight – (-275)
