Some of the biggest names in combat sports have made their predictions for Tyson Fury v Deontay Wilder


Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder's long-awaited rematch is just days away now.

Since their controversial draw in December 2018, the boxing world has been crying out for the deadly duo to come to blows again in a bid to finally settle the score.

If the second edition measures up to the first, then we are in for quite a night as two of the finest heavyweights in the division go all out to defend their unbeaten records.

It is a frightfully difficult fight to call going into it but that hasn't stopped some of the biggest names in combat sports giving it a go.

BT Sport compiled a video of their predictions and it makes for wonderful viewing for Fury who looks to be the overwhelming favourite among the boxing fraternity.

Of the 11 big wigs that were asked, 10 of them predicted that Fury would complete the greatest comeback in boxing history, having come so close the first time around.

You can see all their predictions in the video below:

David Haye - Deontay Wilder

"People haven't mentioned the horrendous cut from Fury's last fight. That will open up and he'll walk into one of the biggest shots in history."

Conor McGregor - Tyson Fury

"Tyson Fury can't drop his guard for a second because if Wilder gets the right hand in there it can change everything. My prediction? Tyson Fury by decision."

Carl Frampton - Tyson Fury 

"Wilder is going to be more gung-ho this time. I still edge towards Fury but I don't think it's going to be the same fight like last time."

Barry Jones - Tyson Fury 

"Wilder will have learnt, will have improved but even though he'll get some rocky patches, I still fancy Fury on points."

Pauli Malignaggi - Tyson Fury

"Can he adjust to the jab of Tyson Fury? Can he adjust to the movement of Tyson Fury? My guess is he probably won't."

Dana White - the fans are going to win

"I honestly don't know who is going to win and that's what makes it fun."

There you have it - while we will admit that some of the names above would obviously lean on the side of Fury, it is interesting to see just how overwhelmingly one-sided it is.

It's the fists that will do the talking come Saturday night though, and we simply can't wait.
