Tyson Fury vs Deontay Wilder 3: Prediction
This has all the makings to be a firefight for as long as it lasts. Although Fury’s outward motives were questioned ahead of their 2020 rematch when he boldly announced he was going for the knockout, his prediction proved gospel given his performance, which included a noted lack of resistance from a shellshocked Wilder.
Fury has predicted yet another early stoppage and there’s plenty of reason to believe both that it’s possible and that it remains his best strategy. Although everyone from critics to Fury himself should expect an improved Wilder with nothing to lose as he enters his last shot at redemption, the best way to beat a bully remains standing up to him.
It goes without saying that Fury will need to balance his aggression smartly without bordering on being reckless. One mistake can be one too many against a foe this dangerous. Yet Fury’s unique combo of size, speed and elusiveness should be enough to do so.
Whatever Wilder has left, he will be the most dangerous early.
Unlike his title reign, which often came against smaller foes not even remotely as skilled as Fury, Wilder has often relied upon waiting for his opponents to tire just enough to make a crucial mistake to open up angles for his big power to finish the fight. Wilder simply doesn’t have that luxury against this version of Fury and will need to channel the aggression he showed in his 2017 rematch with Bermane Stiverne by essentially going for broke in hopes of creating a shootout.
Don’t be surprised if Fury gets clipped or even knocked down on his road to victory in this third fight. Just be prepared for him to get up — again — before using his guile and technique to finish the job in the most violent and exciting chapter of their rivalry.
