Boxing world divided on Fury,Wilder II predictions


first_img The pair fought to a split-decision draw in December 2018, with Fury, 31, largely outboxing Wilder, 34, for much of the 12 rounds but was twice dropped by the WBC heavyweight world champion. Since that thrilling fight in Los Angeles 15 months ago, the Gyspy King has gone on to beat Tom Schwarz and Otto Wallin in Las Vegas to build his Stateside profile ahead of the rematch. Wilder on the other hand, scored stunning knockouts against Dominic Breazeale and Luis Ortiz in 2019 which has made him a razor thin bookies favourite in the US to beat Fury. But the predictions of fighting legends are also inconclusive with the title fight a ‘classic pick’em fight’. Larry Holmes – Hall of FamerFURY, KNOCKOUT: “Deontay Wilder will knock out Tyson Fury in the seventh or eighth round if he does what I know that he can do, which is stay on the outside, use his jab, throw that right hand over the jab.” Sugar Ray Leonard – Hall of FamerWILDER, POINTS: “I like Deontay Wilder to win, possibly by knockout, but, in truth, I don’t see either guy being knocked out. I think that Wilder not only has that powerful right hand, but that he has improved in his ability to set it up. “On the other hand, I know that Tyson Fury has excellent boxing abilities and a tremendous chin from the way that he got up from the two knockdowns in their previous fight. “In the end, I think that Wilder is always in shape and that he will use his speed and power to get the job done.” Thomas Hearns – Hall of FamerWILDER, POINTS: “Deontay Wilder can box and win, but I think that his power will be the difference in defeating Tyson Fury. “I believe that it will go to a decision again, but with Deontay Wilder winning it.” Promoted ContentWho Earns More Than Ronaldo?15 Celebs Who Fell From Grace With Their CareersGorgeous Asian Actresses All Men Are Crazy About9 Fictional Universes We Wouldn’t Want To Live In7 Reasons It’s Better To Be A VeganTop 10 Enemies Turned Friends In TVCouples Who Celebrated Their Union In A Unique, Unforgettable Way9 Facts You Should Know Before Getting A TattooWhy Go Veg? 7 Reasons To Do ThisTop 10 Most Romantic Nations In The World6 Extreme Facts About Hurricanes6 Incredibly Strange Facts About Hurricanes Mike Tyson – Hall of FamerFURY, WIN: “It’s not easy to hit Tyson Fury, as big as he is it’s very difficult to hit he’svery elusive. It will be a really interesting fight because both guys have something to prove and I just wish the best for Tyson Fury, I’m always a Tyson fan.” Evander Holyfield – Hall of FamerWILDER, POINTS: “I’m picking Deontay Wilder based on his confidence and the fact that he does all of the right things to remain in great shape, and that he’s committed to his craft. “Wilder’s not just a big guy with a right hand, but he’s also become more calculated in his approach. That’s why I’m picking him to win this second fight against Tyson Fury.” David Haye – Former heavyweight championWILDER, KNOCKOUT: “I don’t think people have mentioned the horrendous cut that Tyson Fury received in his last fight. “I believe that will be opened up and once he’s lost one eye Tyson Fury’s view and perspective will be lost and he’ll unfortunately be walking onto one of the biggest shots in boxing history, as Wilder is that guy unfortunately.” Paulie Malignaggi – Former two-division world championFURY, POINTS: “I feel like it’s going to be Tyson Fury on points, but it’s a fight between the two best fighters in the weight class. “The onus is on Deontay Wilder to make the adjustments, whereas if Fury fights the same fight, odds are, he’s probably going to get the decision.” Manny Pacquiao – Eight division championWILDER, KNOCKOUT: “Never bet against a puncher, particularly one like Deontay Wilder. I look at Wilder like I do at a Mike Tyson, another puncher. I see Wilder winning this rematch with Tyson Fury by 10th-round knockout.” Anthony Joshua – Unified heavyweight championFURY, WIN: “I think Fury wins. A man who nearly done it the first time won’t get it wrong the second time. “That’s the only reason why. I think that he came close the first time to the point of a draw, it wasn’t like a 12-round masterclass then got battered in the 12th and that just separated it.
