Neither of these men have tasted defeat in their careers. However, Wilder has come close on numerous occasions including both fights against Luis Ortiz, in their first bout, Wilder was behind on the scorecards until the 10th round, where he dropped Ortiz and caused a stoppage to win the fight. The same happened in the second fight, where Ortiz outboxed Wilder before once again, The Bronze Bomber picked up the pace and flattened Ortiz in the 7th. The closest Fury has come to a loss was his fight against the American where he infamously “rose from the dead” to survive a punch that would have had most men down for the count.
The First Fight
The first fight between the two behemoths occurred back in December 2018 and ended in Wilder retaining his belt via a split decision draw. After Mexican judge Alejandro Rochin scored the fight 115-111 to Wilder, Canadian judge Robert Tapper scored it 114-112 for Fury and British judge Phil Edwards scored it a 113-113 draw. The result wasn’t popular in either camp with Wilder believing that his two knockdowns should have been enough to win him the fight whilst Fury’s camp thought that the Brit won every round except the two which included a knockdown.
After the first round which both used to feel each other out. Wilder began to live up to his name by wildly swinging, expanding a lot of energy and trying to get the early knockout. However, Fury’s movement was too good for Wilder early on as he forced Wilder to miss most of his big swings. By the fourth round, Wilder adapted his approach and began trying to push for the jab, which he landed more frequently and bloodied Fury’s nose with some stiff shots. However, Fury never looked in any danger during the round, the Brit then made some adaptations of his own, changing to a southpaw stance and successfully countering Wilder, this worked to perfection up until the 9th round where Wilder landed a beautiful left hook and followed it up with the overhand. Fury survived and managed to avoid the majority of a Wilder onslaught in round 9. Fury then fought his way back into the contest in rounds 10 and 11 with some smart boxing before the big moment of the fight. In round 12, Wilder landed his best combination of the night, a devastating right-left combo that would have incapacitated 99% of boxers. However, that 1% was Tyson Fury who appeared to wake up at the five-count and rise like a dead man walking. That was the last notable action in the bout and both boxers embraced each other after the bell.
The Build Up
In comparison to the first fight, this bout has had very little build-up. However, we very much expect that to change as we enter the weekend. Until this week, it was very much filled with the two getting their guest appearances in with radio stations and occasionally the odd TV appearance. However, the fighters have taken very different approaches when talking about each other in the build-up, Fury has been quoted as stating that: “Wilder isn’t the biggest puncher” and that Wilder has “No chance of winning on points in Las Vegas” with those on the side of Fury stating Wilder has a “glass chin” and that he is an “atrocious boxer”. Meanwhile, Deontay Wilder has taken a different approach, stating he was impressed by his opponents’ ability to get up after what he was sure was a knockout. However, he also has stated that he believes Fury suffered from memory loss after the punch as a response to Fury stating he won 10 rounds to 2. Many have predicted that Fury will knock out Wilder in the 8th round, you can bet on the fight to end between rounds 7-9 at 4/1 but if you’re looking to be precise.

This is a particularly difficult fight to call, simply because nobody believes Deontay Wilder is as good as he actually is. He has only been knocked down in one professional bout which was 28 fights ago but Fury is the better boxer by a country mile. The telling factor will be from what we’re hearing out of the Fury camp which is that Fury is going to try and get the knockout to avoid another Wilder decision victory. So if that is the case, we think that Wilder might knock out Fury late in the fight. Why? Simply because if you look at every opponent Wilder has fought twice, he’s always performed better the second time around, his mental state goes under the radar and I think Fury will get a knockdown but Wilder will come back to be the first man to ever TKO Tyson Fury.
