Deontay Wilder vs. Tyson Fury: Fight Of The Year Preview And OddsPublished December 1, 2018 by Sol FH
Deontay Wilder gets set to make good on his promise to knock out Tyson Fury. Don't miss out Sunday at 4:00 GMT.
Some say its bad blood, while others believe it's all just a show to sell tickets and pay-per-view orders, but no matter what is true, we've got one heck of a fight this Sunday. Tyson Fury, "The Gypsy King," "The Furious One," with a record of 27-0, will face his biggest competitor to date in Deontay Wilder. Wilder, the "Bronze Bomber," with a professional record of 40-0 with an unprecedented 39 knockouts, will look to do it yet again, but some say he has yet to fight a man like Fury, which is why this fight is so exciting.
Tyson Fury is the underdog, even with his flawless record and a massive victory against Wladmir Klitschko in 2015 earning him the unified WBA, IBF, IBO, and WBO titles, has been training "furiously," to fight Wilder, but seeing the knock out power of Wilder should make him a bit nervous. True, neither man has fought Anthony Joshua, and the winner of this fight will surely get that chance but before the bell rings, let's take a look at what's happened so far.
Just for the media?
Both Wilder and Fury have taken pages out of the respective notebooks of Connor McGregor and Floyd Mayweather Jr., have amped up the energy before the fight with enough bad blood for both sides of the ring. It has been a miracle that these men have not ripped each others' heads off by now, and that even includes Fury's father who almost lost it at a press conference a couple of months ago.
It has been working. There have been many reports that Wilder has spies in Fury's camp, and that the American knows precisely how the Brit has been training. If that is the case, Wilder probably has a lot of inside info on Fury which could lead to his demise.
Wilders' knockouts have been a sight to see. He tries to knock the heads off of his victims with a wild and "cocky" style of fighting. It is that same style that UFC fighter Anderson Silva had before getting knocked out for his first time, and after 40-wins, it might be the time that Wilder loses a big one.
