The Tyson Fury-Deontay Wilder rivalry is all set to become a trilogy. After a split draw in the first fight, followed by a Fury win via knockout in the second installment, the heavyweights are ready to face each other once again and bring us one of the most anticipated boxing matches of the year.
In the rematch, Fury made light work of Wilder, taking over the fight before scoring the stoppage in the seventh round. This loss allowed Wilder to initiate a rematch as situated in the contract’s clause. But because of the pandemic and injuries, the American boxer was forced to delay the third bout despite immediately exercising the rematch option.
Meanwhile, the ‘Gypsy King’ already had his sights set on Anthony Joshua for his next fight. But after Wilder contested his decision via court, the arbitrator stated that Fury must honor the clause and accept the rematch. Ultimately, this set up a rubber match and potentially one of the biggest fights in the sport of boxing. Be sure to check out for the latest Boxing odds and lines at our online Bitcoin sportsbook.
Before they square off, NitroBetting goes over three things to know about the upcoming Tyson Fury vs. Deontay Wilder fight.
What can you expect from Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder?
Tyson Fury can expect a Deontay Wilder firing on all cylinders. The WBC heavyweight champion needs to be at the top of his game to match a thirsty Wilder after the latter lost the fight last year in a seventh-round knockout. Tyson was looking forward to taking on Anthony Joshua, but his fight contract with Wilder said otherwise after the latter triggered the rematch option. His win might drag him to a more complacent attitude, thinking that Wilder will come in with the same strategy and skills. For the 32-year-old to have a shot at taking down the American, he’s going to have to summon his old self, one that’s driven by the motivation to rule the division. Furthermore, it looks like Deontay is getting better and better with Malik Scott training him.
How Much Will the fighters take home?
According to the contract, the third fight purse splits the pot 60-40, with the larger sum going to Fury’s side. The British boxer is guaranteed USD 30 million on top of a share of the pay-per-view earnings. On the other hand, Wilder takes home a guaranteed USD 20 million with shares of the PPV profits.
The promoters are predicted to earn north of USD 100 million from the PPV revenue, which means Fury earns 60% and is quite a large sum compared to his previous fight. These are all estimated numbers based on multiple reports, with the totals finalized after the fight.
