There’s a huge night of boxing this Saturday as Tyson Fury challenges Deontay Wilder for his WBC heavyweight world title.
It will be Fury’s first shot at a world title since he vacated his WBA, IBF, WBO and IBO belts in 2016 as he awaited investigations into anti-doping and medical issues.
That was almost a year after his points victory over Wladimir Klitschko in November 2015 and he has fought only twice since then. Routine wins over Sefer Seferi and Francesco Pianeta have taken Fury’s career record to 27-0, with 19 of his successes coming by knockout.
Wilder’s record is even more emphatic, with 39 of his 40 career victories being by knockout. He remains unbeaten and has posted five more wins since Fury last faced an opponent of any note.
Fury can be backed at 6/4* with Paddy Power.
Betfred are offering the best odds of 5/4* that Wilder wins by knockout for the 40th time in his career, while Fury is available at 9/4* with most bookmakers to win by decision or technical decision.
