Fury vs Wilder 3: Gypsy King tipped to prevail on points

Date: 09/10/2021

Venue: T-Mobile Arena, Nevada

Tyson Fury is expected to make Deontay Wilder pay for forcing him to miss out on a proposed unification clash with Anthony Joshua.

Wilder utilised a clause triggering a third fight with the Gypsy King and Oleksandr Usyk stepped in to claim Joshua’s WBA, IBF and WBO belts.

WBC champion Fury will now be fired up to make sure he doesn’t also suffer a surprise defeat in Nevada.

We’re giving the British boxer a confident vote at 2/5 in our Fury vs Wilder 3 predictions.

A Look At Tyson Fury’s Betting Odds

Most pundits agree that Fury was unlucky to be only given a draw from his first bout with Wilder back in December 2018.

The Gypsy King left nothing to chance in a February 2020 rematch, flooring the Bronze Bomber in the third and fifth rounds before stopping him in the seventh.

That was a 30th win for the 32-year-old, who has no fears over emerging from this trilogy with his unbeaten record intact.

“Wilder, you’re getting smashed,” declared Fury. “When I say smashed, I mean smash, smash, smash. I’ve got your soul, your mojo, everything. I own you.”

With Joshua and Usyk now set for a rematch, Fury insisted he is only focused on the job in hand.

“I was hoping Joshua could win the fight, but he couldn’t – and that’s none of my business,” he stated.

“The only thing I’m bothered about is beating Deontay Wilder, and that’s the most dangerous heavyweight out there.

“In my opinion, Wilder beats Joshua, Usyk, all the rest of the division, comfortable – but he cannot beat me.

“I’m in fantastic shape, fit as a fiddle. There ain’t a man out there born from his mother that can stop me or beat me – I haven’t seen one yet anyway.”

Bravado aside, Fury will still be wary of the punching power which saw Wilder put him down twice in their first fight.

Looking at the Fury vs Wilder 3 odds, we like 3/1 for the Gypsy King to jab his way to a points victory this time.

A Look At Deontay Wilder’s Betting Odds

Wilder will be clinging on to the belief that he can hurt Fury, having come agonisingly close to knocking him out in their initial contest.

The Bronze Bomber floored his rival in the ninth round and then sent him crashing hard to the canvas in the 12th via a right-left combination.

Fury’s recovery will go down in boxing folklore as one of the most dramatic episodes in ring history.

Promoter Frank Warren has warned the Gypsy King not to be drawn into any complacency, though.

He told BT Sport: “Tyson should come through but he can’t afford to become complacent, as Wilder is with a new trainer.

“But I just look at his age and wonder what can he do different?

“Can he outbox Tyson? No. Can he outpunch Tyson? He’s a very dangerous and big puncher but Tyson’s been on the floor twice in the first fight and got up.

“Can he take Tyson’s power? No. Tyson stopped him, had him all over the place in the last fight.

“Is he going to turn into a great boxer? I don’t know but he’s a dangerous puncher, so I’ll say again that Tyson can’t be complacent.”

Both fighters will be coming off 19-month lay-offs, as this contest had to be rearranged from July after Fury tested positive for coronavirus, so that could lead to some ring-rust early on and then a slightly cagey contest.
