Deontay Wilder vs Tyson Fury Prediction: Boxing’s Fairy-Tale Comeback

After reaching the pinnacle of heavyweight boxing and dethroning Wladamir Klitschko back in 2015, the last three years have been an emotional rollercoaster for Tyson Fury.

Following his huge upset with Klitschko, Fury had it all. He was the unified heavyweight champion of the world. But within the two years that followed, he lost it all. Battling his demons of depression, drug use and drink, Fury’s weight rocketed to a massive 392 pounds.

Three years on, and two fights later, Tyson is looking to complete what would be a fairy-tale comeback and one of the best in boxing history.

But standing in his way is hard-hitting knockout artist, Deontay Wilder. The current champion is undefeated with 40 wins and 39 of them are by knockout, but Wilder hasn’t fought anyone of the same prominence as Fury.  This is a huge step up for Wilder and it is uncertain if he can deal with Fury’s elite boxing ability

Fury appears more than up to the task at hand and in recent interviews has displayed his normal confident attitude

“Everybody always writes me off in these fights but I’m still here, I’m still unbeaten and I’m going to beat Deontay Wilder on Saturday night.” Tyson Fury.

The main question in this fight is whether Fury can get back to the level he was at in his title winning fight against Klitschko in 2015. His last two outings since then have been unconvincing and not hit the heights he is capable of. If he can indeed regain that form, Fury will outbox Wilder. If he fails to reach previous heights, I can see a late Wilder knockout.

The two unbeaten heavyweights clash at the Staples Centre, Los Angeles on December 1st. Don’t miss this one, it will be the fight of the year.
