Deontay Wilder v Tyson Fury II Odds

Tyson Fury’s return to the sport of boxing has been nothing short of spectacular and memorable for so many reasons. This is mainly because of what he came back from, but also because of how controversial his draw with Deontay Wilder was back in December 2018.

It was like a movie. A man who was beaten down and almost out – both mentally and physically – rose from the canvas like something out of a Rocky script. The Manchester-born fighter has since been hailed, adored, admired and heavily documented after such a miraculous recovery from a Wilder knockdown and from mental health issues.

As is the case with the fighting nature of Fury, he wanted nothing but the rematch to prove to the world that he did win the first fight, by winning the second. And, on February 23, we finally get the real winner of this legendary matchup. Here, we take a look at what SkyBet‘s markets are saying for this one.

Outright winner

Both fighters have been equally as active since the first fight in California, with each man stepping into the ring twice and winning both, respectively. However, Wilder will certainly come into the rematch with more to boast about after a brutal first round knockout over Dominic Breazeale and a typical Wilder-esque knockout over Luis Ortiz back in November.

Fury, on the other hand, schooled Tom Schwarz in a beautiful boxing display in June, before he edged through a unanimous decision win over Otto Wallin. The ‘Gypsy King’ did comfortably beat the Swede on points, but Fury’s nasty cut above his right eye could have easily forced the fight to be stopped, and it probably would have been if it wasn’t for his cutman, Jorge Capetillo.

However, despite the previous two fights from the two boxers, it is the lineal heavyweight champion of the world that is the favourite to win the rematch outright at 4/5, a big contrast to his 11/8 price tag in the first fight.

As for the WBC champion, you can find him at 11/10 to beat Fury outright, which is much shorter than his 4/7 price tag back when they first met.

To win via TKO/KO

After all, this is heavyweight boxing, and a knockout is always expected and desired from fans, especially when Wilder is in town. The ‘Bronze Bomber’ has knocked out everyone he has ever faced other than Fury, with his only points win coming against Bermane Stiverne, who he would knockout in the first round two years later.

Everyone watching, and even Wilder himself, believed Fury was out for the count in the first battle, but his famous rise from the canvas forced the fight into a draw on the cards. But, as per the usual, Wilder is the favourite for a knockout win at 11/8, which is rather generous for a man of his capabilities.

On the other hand, you can find Fury at 7/2 to win via TKO/KO and take the WBC title to Britain. The 31-year-old does boast an impressive 20 knockouts from 29 wins, although Schwarz and Sefer Seferi remain his only TKO wins in six years.

To win by decision

Wilder is arguably the greatest knockout artist we have seen, and certainly the most prolific since he burst onto the professional scene in 2008. Since then, the American has registered an astonishing 41 knockouts, which gives him an almighty knockout percentage of 95%.

However, whilst Wilder is a true knockout artist, down the years we have seen Fury perfect the sweet science, most notably against Wladimir Klitschko. It can also be argued very strongly that the lineal heavyweight champion actually won the first fight by decision, and that a draw was extremely fortunate for Wilder.

This time around, however, Fury is 11/8 to win on points, which is a massive difference to the 10/1 you can find Wilder to win via the same way.

Another draw

The entire reason why we are here in the first place is because the first fight ended in such a controversial manner. So, here we are again, and if you feel another draw on the cards, you can get this at 20/1.
