July 24th will captivate one of the biggest trilogy fights in boxing history. It has been years since there was this much excitement in the heavyweight division. Thankfully, Tyson “The Gypsy King” Fury and Deontary Wilder bring an aura and attention that few have been able to bring to the sport. In their last fight, Fury dominated Wilder from start to finish. So much so that Wilder’s coaches threw in the towel to save their fighter from taking any more unnecessary damage, they knew he was overmatched. Fury Wilder III odds are certainly reflecting that too. After being an underdog in the first two fights, Fury is a big favorite in this one (-350) with Wilder a sizeable underdog (+250).

There are questions all over this fight. The first question that everyone will be asking is, “Is Wilder able to compete at a high level ever again after their last fight?” An argument can be made that the last fight was a career-altering loss. However, the second question might not be talked about enough and could favor Wilder slightly. That question I have is, “Is Tyson Fury ready to fight a desperate Deontay Wilder?” By ready I am saying is he motivated, in shape, and ready for war. Of course, we will find out on Saturday. July 24th at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada but the lead-up to the fight will tell us a lot about the headspace these fighters are in. That is arguably the most important thing in this matchup

Everything You Need To Know About The First Two Fights

The second fight was far less entertaining than the first one. However, that feeling is relative because the first fight over-delivered in every possible way. It was a back-and-forth fight that had knockdowns, drama, adversity, and strategic adjustments that saved Fury from a bitter defeat. In the 12th and final round, Wilder landed a massive right hook that puts down any other fighter for the rest of the night. Unfortunately for Wilder, Fury is not just another fighter; or even an elite fighter; he is one of the best ever. Fury showcased his legendary durability and incredible cardio which lead to him barely beating the 10 count and leaving the judges guessing who was actually victorious in the fight. The fight ended in a majority draw and set us up for an exciting second fight.

Tyson Fury: +110Deontay Wilder: -150

The draw felt like a win for Fury in the eyes of many. Wilder landed the best shot that he possibly could and still could not put Fury away. After Fury nearly got KO’d in round 12, he came back and pushed the pace on Wilder. Wilder struggled with the pressure that Fury put on him with Fury forcing Wilder to carry his weight during the majority of the 12th round. The second fight was an elongated version of the back-half of round 12. Fury pushed the pace, made Wilder carry his weight, and frustrated his exhausted opponent. The coaches were right to throw in the towel for a young Wilder who had no chance of winning that fight with his energy and output levels so low.

The end of the second fight is where things got really hairy between these two. Tyson Fury did not want to fight Wilder again, he wanted to fight Anthony Joshua. Wilder had a stipulation in his contract that forced a rematch between these two fighters. There has also been a ton of issues for Deontay Wilder too which is detailed below…

Aftermath Of The Second Fight

The aftermath of the second fight can only be categorized as bizarre. Wilder has listed an unbelievable amount of reasons for losing the second fight. It seems as though he hasn’t been able to settle on a reason for the loss, making me wonder if he is throwing his entire gameplan away and starting from scratch. Below is a list of some of the more notable proclaimed reasons for the loss.

Muscles were tired because of the weight of his armor during his walkout

To be fair, it does look heavy…

 

Poisoned?!? Odd excuse to say the least. Wilder says that he drank some spiked water and that it gave him the feeling of a muscle relaxer. Interesting to say the least.

The Referee wanted Fury to win?

Loaded Gloves

His coaches shouldn’t have thrown in the towel

Injured Bicep

Fury has a pretty creative social media team, as you can see.

Fury vs. Wilder Best Bets And Betting Picks

Now let’s get down to business. Deontay Wilder’s career as a contender is on the line in this fight. He has done and said everything that every fighter in history has said after a loss. He fired his coaches and looks like he has put on a ton of muscle to deal with Tyson Fury’s weight. Fury was much bigger and used it to his advantage in the second fight.

Wilder will need to keep his distance and land haymakers in order to win this fight. I do think it is interesting that Fury wanted to fight Anthony Joshua and not Deontay Wilder. Wilder wanted the fight so bad that he went to arbitration to review his case and won. Fury reportedly offered money to Wilder to go away, which he rejected. Wilder really wants this fight.

Fury is undefeated so it is difficult to really pick holes at his game. However, after his victory over Wladimir Klitschko, Fury dominated and took a three-year layoff. During that three-year layoff, he gained serious weight. At one point he was nearly 400 pounds. Unfortunately, this needs to be mentioned because he doesn’t appear to be in the best shape right now. This is worth monitoring as we get closer to fight time.

Moreover, Fury dominated the second fight so decisively that he could underestimate Wilder in their third matchup. Either way, I have a very hard time believing that this fight will go to a decision. Wilder will probably go out on his shield if he can’t land a big shot. Furthermore, Wilder has landed his best punch on Fury. If Wilder lands that again, it is conceivable that Fury is not able to rise like the Undertaker a second time. I project the “fight not to go to decision” prop to hover around -120 and I would play that up to -140.

This fight should be fascinating. We shall see if Wilder is able to make the necessary adjustments as it is every bit of a must-win fight for Wilder. Wilder was the favorite in the first two fights so I think there could be slight value on Wilder. I will want to see what kind of shape Fury is in before betting my money on Wilder. It is unlikely that I lay big money on Fury at his current price. Oddsmakers did not believe in him in the past and this looks like an overcorrection.
