Tyson Fury vs Deontay Wilder 3: Frank Bruno gives prediction

Frank Bruno backs Tyson Fury to knock out Deontay Wilder

Tyson Fury has got what it takes to knock Deontay Wilder out again this weekend.

That’s the view of boxing legend Frank Bruno, who says The Gypsy King is ‘a much better boxer’ than The Bronze Bomber. 

Lineal heavyweight champion Fury, 33, and former WBC titleholder Wilder will meet in Las Vegas on Saturday night, 16 months after Fury stopped the American.

And despite reminding Fury he will still need to be on the lookout for Wilder’s ‘windmill punch’, Bruno is expecting more or less the same result on the night. 

“I think Tyson won’t just beat him again – he’s a much better boxer than Wilder and he’ll school him,” Bruno told Sky Sports.

Bruno believes Fury’s sizeable bulk, not just his ridiculously high fight IQ, will also be a big factor against the Alabama native. 

He added: “Fury will be going in nearly five stone heavier than Wilder and, if he boxes smart, and wears him down, that will make a big difference.

“But you have to be wary of Wilder’s windmill punch. He’s got a big punch, not much else, but you have to give him a puncher’s chance.

The Ultimate Tyson Fury quiz: Where was Tyson Fury born?

“As long as Tyson Fury doesn’t get involved with this guy… This guy is a very dangerous hard puncher. Don’t get stupid. This guy’s got pure power but nothing else.

“I think Tyson’s got it under control. I hope so. I think Tyson Fury will knock him out.”

Bruno’s prediction for the fight comes just a few days after his former foe Mike Tyson warned Wilder that ‘Fury has his number’ ahead of their trilogy fight this weekend.  

During a recent episode of the ‘Hotboxin’ with Mike Tyson’ podcast, the 55-year-old said: “You know, Deontay Wilder has nothing to be sad about or nothing to complain about, he’s fought great fights…I just think Tyson Fury has his number.”
