Boxing News: Fury Vs Wilder II Is Going to Be a Betting Bonanza
Unlikely former WBA, IBF, WBO, and IBO heavyweight champion Tyson Fury will go toe to toe with World Heavyweight champions Deontay Wilder on February 22nd, keen to make up for the controversial draw that was scored when the two big bruisers did battle in December 2018.
Outspoken Brit Fury spectacularly Wladmir Klitschko in 2015 but then disappeared from the boxing world for almost three years with the 31-year-old suffering with mental illness issues that he has been very open about.
Fury will go into the fight with an unbeaten record of 29 wins and one draw, with 20 of those fights ending in a KO.
34-year-old Wilder is definitely the more orthodox champion than Fury was previously, and will almost certainly be the big favorite ahead of the bout in MGM Grand Garden Arena but that doesn’t mean a cheeky wager on Fury isn’t a risk worth taking.
In their previous fight most felt that Fury had done enough to earn a points victory of Wilder, despite having been knocked down twice by the Alabaman.
Currently Bovada is offering -105 on Wilder and -125 on Fury, and those are very close to call odds. 5dimes odds are a little more favorable for Fury with the US Sportsbook offering -115 on the Manchester born fighter.
The fight is sure to be a massive box office draw when it comes to streaming and there won’t be a spare seat in the Arena for what promises to be a hugely entertaining encounter.
