Wilder v Fury 2 Winner? We Ask The Boxing World


It’s set to be the biggest fight of 2020 as Deontay Wilder and Tyson Fury renew hostilities for the world heavyweight title. The loud-mouthed rivals competed in a 2018 classic that was eventually scored a draw, and their imminent rematch has got the boxing community split. Here, SportPesa speak with members of the boxing industry as they offer their predictions on this Saturday’s heavyweight clash.

Jazza Dickens, Featherweight contender

“It’s Tyson Fury for me. He should already be the champ and he’ll prove it on Saturday.”

John McDonald, leading boxing writer at Boxing Monthly

“It’s Deontay Wilder somewhere between rounds seven and nine. Much has been made of how Tyson Fury will improve from the first fight, but the same is true of Wilder. He improved as the contest went on last time, timing Fury as he attempted to duck under the right cross. I don’t like the fact that Fury has changed camps and if he is more aggressive this time, it will play into Wilder’s hands.”

Jamie Moore, premier trainer and ex-fighter

“I think we’re looking at a very similar fight to the first one. Tyson Fury got a little overconfident last time and nearly paid the ultimate price, but I don’t think he’ll switch off this time. Fury on points.”

Andy Clarke, Sky Sports commentator

Deontay Wilder by knockout. I think Wilder’s improved since the first fight and he’ll catch Tyson Fury, who won’t be able to beat the count this time.”

Anthony Fowler, Super-Welterweight contender and Commonwealth Games gold medallist

Tyson Fury on points, but he might have to get up after another knockdown.”

Danny Vaughan, first class trainer with a lifetime in the sport

Tyson Fury will stop Deontay Wilder in the later rounds. Fury is ready this time and he will set traps as Wilder looks to take his head off with his big right hand. The best version of Wilder couldn’t finish Fury when he was at 75%”

Anthony Crolla, former world lightweight champion

Tyson Fury on points, but he may touch down along the way.”

Shakur Stevenson, WBO Featherweight champion

“Who wins out of Deontay Wilder and Tyson Fury? I go with Wilder by KO.”

Robert Guerrero, former world champion

“Wilder is a better fighter now and he’s been improving with each fight. He’s already seen what Fury brings to the table and I think he gets the knockout this time around. I’ve got Wilder by late round knockout.”

Ruben Guerrero Sr, world renowned trainer

“Tyson Fury is much more focused going into this fight. He’s got God centred into his life now so I’m picking Fury by decision.”

Sam Jones, fast-rising manager of 2016 Olympic silver medallist, Joe Joyce

“Great fight this and I go for Tyson Fury by decision.”

Steve Lillis, vastly experienced and well-travelled Boxnation expert

“72 minutes in a boxing ring with Deontay Wilder is a long time without getting nailed. I have a feeling the American will get the job done in eight rounds.”

Jamie Conlan, ex world title challenger

Tyson Fury on points. There’ll be scary moments early and he may touch the canvas late, but he’ll have enough gas in the tank and rounds in the bank for a unanimous decision win.”

John Scully, trainer of current light-heavyweight ruler, Artur Beterbiev

“Very tough fight to call but I believe that if Tyson Fury is on his A-game he will perform how he did for the majority of the first fight and win a unanimous decision.”

Cameron Dunkin, boxing talent spotter responsible for the rise of Kelly Pavlik and Terrence Crawford

“I’m looking forward to the fight, and I have Tyson Fury by unanimous decision.”

James DeGale, former world champion and Olympic gold medallist

“A brilliant fight where anything can happen, but I’ve got to say Tyson Fury.”

Dave Coldwell, leading trainer and Sky Sports pundit

“A hard fight to pick. Tyson Fury can box for twelve rounds, but can he avoid that big shot from Deontay Wilder. He really only needs to find the target once. I honestly don’t know who wins.”

Jordan Gill, featherweight contender

“This fight is Deontay Wilder’s. He’ll win by KO.”
