The biggest fight of the century, the one we’ve all been waiting for to unify the heavyweight division must be put on hold. Deontay Wilder’s team were convinced that a third fight was well within their legal right and the case went to arbitration. What does this mean for the Fury vs Joshua fight? A huge blow to everyone involved; the fans, the promoters, the organizers, and of course, the fighters themselves. One thing’s for certain, the Fury vs Wilder fight will be nothing short of entertaining and we expect a huge crowd to complete the fight trilogy.
Fury v Wilder III - Best Sportsbook to Bet
Fury Favourite Again: Wilder Can’t Box
The only way Wilder can claim his title back is by way of knockout. Wilder can’t box, but his deadly right hand has proven to put anyone down on the canvas and is a showstopper to most. Fury will most probably work his jab throughout the fight, like we’ve seen him do in the first two fights, effectively keeping Wilder away and frustrating him in the process. Wilder will need to find ways to outsmart Fury and not rely solely on his right hand, although none have been able to thus far.
Betting on Tyson Fury is where the smart money is. If you’re looking for a safe bet, a simple $50 bet on Tyson Fury to win the fight likely return. Anything can happen in heavyweight boxing but judging by how Wilder got battered in their last fight, betting on Fury is the safest bet. Many believe a repeat of the last fight is what’s on the cards – and the odds for a Fury win by knockout are likely going to be low.
Odds for Wilder to knockout Tyson fury will likely be high so a $50 bet could bring in a hefty win, but Fury rose from the dead in the 12th round of the first fight, and knocking Fury out is proving to be harder than expected. Boxing experts and fans alike are convinced that Wilder cannot beat Fury on points, so from a betting perspective, it’s better to bet on Wilder to win by way of knockout rather than betting on Wilder to win the fight.
Of course, with the fight yet to be finalized yet, odds at bookmakers are spare but we will keep you in the loop as soon as they are live and you should check out our bookmakers to make sure you are ready when the markets open for betting.
Tyson Fury vs Deontay Wilder 3: Fight Details
A provisional date for July 24 has been reserved. The fight will take place in Las Vegas after an attempt to buy out Deontay Wilder failed and go ahead with plans for the Fury vs AJ fight.
The American arbitrator has said that the fight must happen before September 15th, although all stakeholders believe the fight will take place before summer ends. There are several venues being considered for the fight trilogy, but the following are shortlisted; the Allegiant Stadium, home to NFL’s Las Vegas Raiders, or the popular T-Mobile Arena, NHL’s Las Vegas Golden Knights.
The Unusual Press Conference
We all expected Tyson Fury to make an entrance to the press conference and an entrance is what boxing fans got. The Gypsy King walked onto the stage shirtless and shadowboxing behind Wilder, with his first words being “The Champion’s here!”
Wilder walked onto the podium first, thanked his trainer and his legal team and told the press that he’ll be “decapitating’ Fury’s head. Both fighters kept it short on the podium and the press conference quickly moved to the Q&A section. This is where the event took a weird turn. When asked about why Malik Scott was chosen as his head trainer, the former champion completely ignored the host and refused to answer any questions. All the questions that were meant to be for Wilder were all answered by his trainer.
Wilder’s new trainer, Mailk Scott, claims that we’ll see a different Deontay on July 24th while Fury promised to eliminate Wilder sooner than he did in their last fight. One thing’s for certain - there’s no telling in heavyweight boxing. The heavyweight division is a weight class where one punch could end a fighter’s career.
Who is Malik Scott?
There are many anomalies with the Fury vs Wilder trilogy with the biggest one being Wilder’s choice as head trainer. But who really is Malik Scott? Scott is a decent fighter who’s been around the block a few times, having won 38 out of his 43 fight career, including loss to Deontay Wilder, the man he’s in charge of training. Malik lost two title fights, including one embarrassing performance against Luis Ortiz for the WBA Intercontinental heavyweight title.
Fury doesn’t believe that Malik could be teaching an old dog new tricks, and was quick to bring up the sparring session the pair had, where Fury ended up busting Malik’s eardrum. Can the ‘one trick pony’ bring a different game to the ring on July 24th? Or are we going to see Deontay Wilder revert back to relying on his explosive power as Tyson claims he’ll do?
The First Two Fights: Tyson Fury in Control
The first fight was a display of boxing masterclass by the Gypsy King. Fury followed Wilder around the ring, using the double jab to push him against the ropes and unleashing power punches. As expected, Wilder went for bombs, missing the target on many occasions. However, Wilder connected with a straight right followed by a quick left hook which brought Fury down. Miraculously, Fury got up and finished the fight. The bout ended in a draw, although experts believed the fight should have ended as a Fury Win.
14 months later, Fury outclassed Wilder again, only that time, he dropped The Bronze Bomber twice, and the fight ended in a 7th round TKO. Wilder will get the chance to redeem himself once again this summer, or risk being forgotten.

Fighting Styles & Betting Tips
The two heavyweight fighters have very different fighting styles. Fury is slick, moves like a flyweight, and fights with panache and finesse. The Bronze Bomber has a deadly weapon in his explosive right hand that has shown the devastating damage it can cause. Wilder will try to avoid letting the fight go to distance as this is his downfall, and this is where betting on rounds comes in. Betting on Wilder to knock out Tyson Fury in the first 6 rounds will have good odds on Wilders end. It’s important to keep in mind that Wilder has never finished a fight on points and should be taken into consideration when placing bets on the Fury vs Wilder fight.
Fury, on the other hand, is very experienced in taking fights to distance. His knockout ratio is nowhere close to Wilder’s impressive 95%, however, a KO or TKO is most likely the outcome of the third fight. Wilder becomes weaker as the fight goes on, becoming susceptible to Fury’s relentless pressure and if he connects the jab throughout the fight, it makes the knockout punch more likely. Stay tuned for odds in the coming days!
How To Bet on Fury vs Wilder 3
Even though Wilder is the underdog with odds of +255 to win the fight, he’s still a very dangerous fighter with a 93% knockout ratio. We don’t expect the fight to go the distance for a number of reasons.
Firstly, Wilder’s never been in a 12 round boxing fight - the Bronze Bomber is a knockout artist and his 100% knockout record was tainted by the man he’s facing for the third time. We also don’t expect the fight to go the distance because of the contrasting styles of both fighters. Fury tends to steamroll past opponents, breaking them down with a barrage of jabs, combined with relentless pressure fighting on the front foot. Wilder struggles when cornered and has a hard time fighting off the back, which was clearly evident against Ortiz, who dominated Wilder throughout the fight until getting clipped by Deontay’s usual knockout blow.
A $50 bet on Wilder to win the fight by decision or technical decision will return $650, however, a more sensible bet on Wilder would be to win by way of knockout, which will return $216 from a $50 bet.
Bookmakers have a knockout or TKO by Tyson Fury as the most likely possibility, which is reflected in the odds which stand at +100. A win on points for Fury has odds of +250, which will return $175 from a $50 bet.
