Following WBC heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder’s latest social media post the reaction from boxing fans makes it clear that people are split on who wins between him and lineal champion Tyson Fury next weekend.
When the fight was first announced consensus seemed to be that it was too soon for Fury and that Wilder should have a straight forward night.
However, as the fight has gotten closer and footage of the excellent condition Fury has whipped himself into has emerged — this popular opinion is now changing to one of more 50/50.
Right down the middle no less:

Couple that with the WBC heavyweight championship of the world on the line and this has all the makings of a huge night of boxing.
