Deontay Wilder vs Tyson Fury 2 Predictions, all of which can be viewed in more detail on our YouTube channel.
Ron Lewis, top boxing writer
Fury has to be absolutely on it. Looking at the Otto Walin fight, I’m wondering if that last round against Wilder actually took a lot out of Fury. I edge towards Fury but it’s not a really confident prediction.
Jeff Powell, Daily Mail
The knockdown in the 12th [of the first fight] is a significant factor. Coming in after that psychological damage will be interesting. If you’re worrying about getting caught, perhaps you will. At this point, I’d day Wilder.
Jay McFarlane, heavyweight prospect
Danny Murrell, Dave Allen protégé
Frazer Clarke, GB Boxing Super-heavyweight
I want Fury to win and I think he’s going to win. Boxing IQ, the way he performed last time – I think he should be better now – and his new experienced training team might just take him over the line.
Robert McCracken, GB Performance Director & Trainer of Anthony Joshua
Wilder’s obviously extremely heavy-handed and knows where he’s at range-wise and stuff. Obviously Tyson’s a really good boxer, it’s boxer against the puncher, I think Tyson will win on points, he’ll outbox him, but he’ll have to do it clearly and be busy as American judges and audiences someone who pushes the fight.
Eddie Hearn, promoter of Anthony Joshua
Fury has to box the fight he boxed against Wladimir Klitschko. Wilder will be more reckless, take more chances. I feel like they’ve run them ragged on the promotion, it’s breaking up a lot of camp and it’s who deals with that better. Hopefully Fury gets the win. [Who are you picking?] Fury.
Ohara Davies, super-lightweight contender
I love Deontay Wilder, I love Tyson Fury, but, I don’t know what it is, I feel like Tyson Fury stops him. I don’t know why I’m thinking that.
