The WBC heavyweight title battle between Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder is approaching. That means boxing fans may place their last-minute wagers on Saturday’s pay-per-view (PPV) program on ESPN+, which will be hosted inside T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.
When you consider the ferocity in their previous two rounds, it’s difficult to picture this battle finishing in a draw. In late 2018, Fury and Wilder fought to a split draw, followed by a technical knockout victory for the “Gypsy King” in their rematch in 2020.
“Does it last a long time?” There’s no way. “I’m going to stop him again,” Fury said on ESPN. “I’m going to stomp on him. This time, I’m going to submit him. I’ll make him resign like an MMA fighter. I’m going to punish him brutally. I’m going to do a lot of harm on him.”

Fury vs. Wilder 3 Betting Predictions
Prior to the second bout, we assumed it would once again be a bull vs. matador battle. This, however, turned out to be incorrect.
Wilder was perplexed by Tyson’s newfound offensive aggressiveness.
I believe that the major reason that pressing Wilder works so effectively is that Deontay need his feet to be planted in order to throw with the power he possesses. He has spent his entire life training with the expectation of his opponents backing up.
He’s not used to fighting on the defensive, and at 35 years old, I doubt we’ll witness a boxer reborn in the ring on Saturday.
Fury is also the only opponent who is taller and has a longer reach than Wilder, which is significant. Wilder enjoys his overhand rights and is accustomed to facing opponents who are smaller than he is. Fury’s size is a significant advantage.
I’m not going to go into too much detail on the mental element of this struggle. We can only speculate on where both boxers will start this battle. Wilder’s amusing excuses, on the other hand, can’t be indicators of a healthy boxer going into a trilogy against the same man he just defeated.
Wilder has always relied on a limited toolkit. The story of the first fight between these two was his jab-overhand right-left hook combo, which Fury was only caught by twice.
Fury, the vastly greater boxer, can land far more shots. We even witnessed him knock Wilder out with a body shot in the last fight, which proves his point.
Overall, Wilder was thoroughly demolished in the previous fight, so I don’t expect anything different this time. Fury gets the job done from a safe distance.
