Unfinished Business In The Rematch

Tyson Fury vs. Deontay Wilder 2020 promotion started as soon as the first bout ended in a controversial draw. 

In the eyes of many, Fury outclassed Wilder for long stretches of their 2018 battle. But with two knockouts — including a stunner in the final round in which Fury somehow miraculously recovered before the ten count — Wilder did enough to make up for the scorecard deficit.

Something's got to give on February 22 when the two clash again at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. Both men have unblemished records. Wilder — the reigning WBC heavyweight champion — is 42-0-1 with 41 of those wins coming via knockout. Whereas Fury is 29-0-1 and a former holder of heavyweight titles in the WBA, IBF, WBO, and IBO.  

Clash of Boxing Styles

The 6-foot-7 Wilder might be the hardest-hitting boxer since Mike Tyson. With a stunning 98 percent knockout rate, it's almost a given that Fury will hit the mat courtesy of a Wilder blow at least once in the rematch.

The question is, can Fury get up again? Probably. The second knockdown he suffered versus Wilder the first-go was one of the most devastating in recent memory. The resilience Fury showed in getting up from that — as well as fending off his personal demons outside the ring — shows he's one of the grittiest fighters in the game today. 

If it goes the distance again, you would think it would be to Fury's advantage. He's by far the more technical of the two, juking and jabbing his way through opponents.

With that said, you have to address the elephant in the room. Whether accurate or not, the sport of boxing is notorious for "rigging" the scorecards in favor of the bigger-name fighter. In the case of these two, Wilder is clearly the "A side."

Plus, the biggest money fight left in the entire sport remains Wilder versus Anthony Joshua. A loss by Wilder against Fury either stops that dream match from ever happening or lessens its box-office potential.

All things considered, we're picking Wilder to come out victorious. If not by skewed judging, he'll win with one of his trademark knockdowns. After the first meeting, Wilder has to know he can't outbox Fury for 12 rounds, but he can certainly connect for one or two fight-ending blows. 

Betting pick to make: Wilder (-115)
