After plenty of legal wrangling, Deontay Wilder has finally got his way and will now play his part in a trilogy fight with WBC heavyweight champion Tyson Fury so we can examine the Fury vs Wilder III betting odds and find out where the value is. The fight was initially scheduled on July 24, however after Fury and a few other people from his team have been tested positive with COVID-19, it has been postponed to October 9, 2021.
As you may know, the boxing authorities have ordered this fight and scuppered Fury’s plans for a unification bout with his fellow Brit, Anthony Joshua, about which we mention in our Joshua vs Fury betting odds and tips article. Instead, the courts decided that Wilder was legally obliged to take a rematch with eh Gypsy King following his seventh round defeat the last time they met.
That followed the titanic draw in their first fight, in which Fury was twice knocked down to the canvas before rising to – according to some onlookers – just about shade the decision.
Either way, before the decision to postpone the fight, the bookmakers were taking no chances with their Fury vs Wilder 3 betting odds, and made the champion a 1.33 favourite to win by any means. Wilder, meanwhile, was the 3.25 underdog.
But which of those prices makes for the most appetising bet? Let’s take a look in our Fury vs Wilder III predictions.
This is the archetypal clash of styles type fight, and that’s what makes it so intriguing.
Fury has always been a sweet mover, and his head and foot movement belies his huge 6ft 9in frame. He is a technical boxer, and was always more likely to win on points than KO – until he joined the gym of SugarHill Stewart, the nephew of legendary trainer Emmanuel.
And that, according to Fury himself, has allowed him to unlock more power in his punches – as he showed with devastating effect by stopping Wilder in their last meeting.
As for the Bronze Bomber, there isn’t much science and mystery as to how he goes about his business. He is a KO artist, pure and simple, as proven by a record of 41 knockout victories in 44 outings.
He nearly added another to his collection against Fury in their first fight, finding a way through the Englishman’s slick defence to twice dump him on the canvas. Fury rose like Lazarus to secure the draw, and you wonder if Wilder’s mindset is ‘can I really beat this guy?’ The Gypsy King took his best shots and still kept on walking.
The second fight was so one-sided that you can now see that disparity in the Tyson Fury vs Deontay Wilder betting odds, but the beauty of heavyweight boxing is that one punch can change everything – as Buster Douglas and Hasim Rahman can testify.
Wilder has that power in his locker….but can he unearth it against Fury?

After all, if Wilder loses it could well be curtains for him as an elite fighter – it’s always a long way back to the top of boxing’s mountain. If Fury loses, he can kiss goodbye to a huge payday against Joshua, with a fourth fight against the Bronze Bomber – given that their series would then be tied 1-1-1 – almost a certainty.
