    The heavyweight division has been dormant for quite some time but is set to awaken the 1stof December when two giants clash: the American Deontay Wilder, a power puncher who throws bombs from start to finish, and “The Gypsy King” Tyson Fury, a calm, cold blooded, technician. It’s a difficult fight to predict, but I will not leave my verdict up in the air, and I will be clear with my opinions.

    Who will finish the night with their hand raised? I wish I had a crystal ball in order to anticipate the result, but much of it will depend on what kind of shape Fury shows up in after a long period of inactivity and a comeback this year against names of little notoriety.

    Let’s break it down:

    Wilder had a successful amateur career that ended with a bronze medal in the heavyweight division (201lbs) of the 2008 Olympic Games. Little is said about the beginnings of Tyson Luke Fury. On the list of British Olympians, we strongly remember the champion from London 2012, Anthony Joshua, the winner of Sidney 2000, Audley Harrison, and of course Lennox Lewis. This is a very select list that “The Gypsy” is not a part of.


    Deontay Wilder is 6’7, 220lbs

    Tyson Fury is approximately 6’9, 257lbs, a true a heavyweight, but what distinguishes him is how agile and quick he is in regard to his proportions.


    Wilder has a record of 40-0, with 39 KOs.

    Fury, 27-0 with 19 KOs, isn’t known for his power, but instead his immense size that he combines with great technique and dexterity.


    With a combined record of 67-0, the winner of this fight will take a significant step forward and possess the “golden ticket” to face Anthony Joshua.

    Wilder isn’t technically sound, but “hits like a truck”. His first time being put to the test was against the veteran Luis Ortiz, when he was almost knocked out. In summary, the fight was in Ortiz’s favor until Wilder’s lethal weapon, his right hand, landed and sent Ortiz to the canvas once and for all.

    Fury begins his fights long before he enters the ring, with terrifying verbal warfare that gets inside the heads of even his most tunnel-visioned opponents. In the ring he is astute, intelligent, quick and very clever.

    Two outcomes ... one winner:

    After much consideration and analysis, we are left with two possible outcomes. The first, Wilder comes out hunting Fury and knocks him out in 7 or 8 rounds, when “The Gypsy” falls prey in a corner, running out of ring and being put to sleep by one of Deontay’s “bombs”. On the other hand, some underestimate Wilder’s ability to box, along with the other things he does well, which include his powerful right hand and the improvements he has made in utilizing the uppercut.

    Those who are betting on Fury believe he will emerge victorious in a 12 round decision. If this is the case, then the fight will be monotone, with Wilder swinging for the head and Fury bobbing and weaving, while accumulating points on the scorecards.

    An important aspect will be body punches, whoever comes out and tries to work on the body and not just headhunt will be on the path to victory. Factors such as the venue or fighting at home will not be at play here. Fury has only fought outside of his country three times, but on one of those occasions he defeated Vladimir Klitschko in Germany, who, at the time, was thought to be invincible, and before that knocked out Steve Cunningham at the Madison Square Garden. Any other fighter might be affected by competing away from home, but not “The Gypsy King” Tyson Fury, who thrives in situations like these.

    My prediction: Wilder by knockout. I don’t think Fury has enough gas in the tank.

    Has Wilder ever gone to the body ? Not sure .
    Fury by KO or Decision.

      Wilder protects his own body rather than punching at his opponents. A Micky Ward he'll never be!

        I gave this some thought the other day and maybe I am a little crazy but could this fight end up being a bit boring? Neither is overly active, both have awkward styles and neither ever pushes the action. Both like to feel out their opponents and take very few risks. I would love to see Wilder win simply because I think he versus Joshua is an exciting fight.

        I got Wilder by late round KO but the alternative would not surprise me in the least.

        By the way, Fury looked a little jiggly at the weigh in. He has never looked like a Greek god but he was a little soft.

          If Wilder drops the WBC title, BLM will recognize him as champ.
