Boxing makes its return to Los Angeles, as two undefeated heavyweight clash for the overall heavyweight supremacy in the boxing world. Online boxing sportsbooks have Deontay Wilder as the favourite, but the odds are quite close as Tyson Fury does have some advantages in the ring. The fight is scheduled for Saturday, December 1, 2018, in at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, California. 

Fight Facts

  • Seven straight title defences for Wilder
  • Fury 2-0 since returning to boxing
  • Fighters combined 67-0 with 58 KOs
  • The fight is for the WBC Heavyweight Championship
  • Both fighters in their early 30s

Fighter Preview: Deontay Wilder (40-0) – The King of the Knockout 

At 40-0, Deontay Wilder is one of the winningest boxers in history. Of his 40 wins, 39 came by knockout. Wild has also successfully defended his title eight times. One of his successful defences came against Bermane Stiverne (the man he won the title against), a year ago. Wilder knocked out Stiverne in the first round, his third first-round knockout in the last five years and 19th overall.

Fighter Preview: Tyson Fury (28-0) – Returning to Form  

After a year-and-a-half absence from the ring (where he dealt with drug and alcohol problems), Tyson Fury made his return in June, winning convincingly and proving he still has the skills of a top-ranked heavyweight. He followed up his win with a ten-round test Francisco Pianeta. Fury’s defensive skills shone brightly. Fury won the match by decision after Pianeta could only land 16% of his punches (with most landing being insignificant). That performance helped him land this fight, as most boxing pundits were hopeful for a Deontay Wild vs. Anthony Joshua showdown.

Who Will Win? Wilder vs. Fury

As great as Tyson Fury has looked since his return to the ring, Deontay Wilder is the fighter to pick to win on December 1. Wild is a skilled fighter, capable of knocking out an opponent in any round. Since Fury’s comeback, he has looked good, but the level of competition he has faced is not near the level of Wilder.

Fury has a slight advantage in height and reach, but Deontay Wilder can fight very well at a distance and beat taller fighters. If this fight happened two years ago, before Fury stepped away from the ring for a while, he would have a better chance of winning. However, Wild is in the midst of one of the greatest boxing runs in history.      

Pick: Deontay Wild -165 to win outright

See below the top sportsbooks where you can wager online and choose the best one for you:

Prop Bet: Over or Under 9.5 Rounds

There is value at +120 to bet under 9.5 rounds. There is also plenty of logic on betting the under as well. Only 20% of Wilder’s matches in the last six years (3/15) have lasted longer than the 9.5 rounds. Many of those fights came against top-rated heavyweights for the WBC Heavyweight championship.

Fury’s last five fights (which date back to November 2014) featured no knockouts and two of his matches lasting to the judges table. Conversely, only one fight ended before the eighth round. Still, the money is not on Fury to win the fight and expecting him to beat Wilder by points or force him to retire early is not the way to bet.

Pick: Under 9.5 Rounds +120
