Recently Deontay Wilder kept his end of the bargain up to keep the Tyson Fury super (re) match alive with a stunning right hand knockout of Luis Ortiz.
A shot that came against the run of play entirely in the bout with most people believing Ortiz to be ahead at the time of the stoppage on the cards.
But that’s the thing about Wilder, he has the ability to close the show in the blink of an eye with just one punch.
Going into his first fight with Tyson Fury last year he was a big favorite but after battling to a draw and Fury largely out boxing him in the fight, things are a little different with the bookies second time around.
Going by the boxing betting odds offered by reputed bookmakers, Wilder will go into this fight as a solid favorite at odds of around +105.
Fury on the other hand is being offered at around -125.
A much closer fight this time round with the sports books.
After the two fought each other for the first time in December 2018 — way more people are picking Fury this time.
That said, he needs to avoid that crazy Wilder power for the whole fight again if he’s to be successful in the rematch.
It is thought that the rematch will take place on February 22nd but a formal announcement should be forthcoming before Christmas to confirm.
Who wins the rematch?
Time will only tell.
