All eyes are on the upcoming mega-fight: Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder are set to lock horns for the third time on July 25 in their trilogy bout. With only weeks till the event, now is the time to speculate upon who has what it takes to go the distance this time.

There are lots of different options available to prospective bettors, and in this guide, readers can learn more about each of the boxing betting opportunities available to them in the lead-up to this clash of the titans.

Match Odds/Fight Winner

As the name suggests, the Match Odds/Fight Winner is simply trying to predict who will win the fight by any means necessary. The Fury vs Wilder odds from Paddy Power have already been set live and currently, Fury is the sportsbook favorite at -350 thanks largely to the fact he was such a dominant victor in the second encounter between the pair, with Wilder available at +250.

It’s tempting to bet on the draw at odds of +2500, but remember that these are so rare in boxing – even if, ironically, the first fight between the Gypsy King and the Bronze Bomber ended in a stalemate.

Method of Victory

You may have been reading some Fury v Wilder tips and be considering a wager on some of the sub-markets that are available. One of the most popular is Method of Victory, which – putting the draw to one side – offers four different options. Those are Fury to win by KO/TKO, Fury to win on points and then Wilder with each of those two possibilities as well.

The second fight in the trilogy ended in a Fury KO, and that is available at odds of -120 this time around. 

Round Betting

This is an interesting betting option that can offer high risk for a high reward.

You can bet on the individual round number that you think the contest will end in, with prices starting from +900 for the middle rounds to as high as +2000 at the end of the contest.

Of course, if you want to mitigate your risk somewhat, you can wager on groups of rounds, for example, rounds 1-6 and 7-12, or smaller units like 1-4, 5-8, and so on.

The Specials

Most sportsbooks will offer special markets and odds for unique scenarios.

Popular options include:

  • Will the fight go the distance?
  • To be knocked down and win?
  • Will both fighters be knocked down?

From the sheer amount of hype alone, it’s clear that boxing remains one of the most beloved sports on earth. This is further proven by the astronomical box office sales for mega-fights on pay-per-view. Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao’s bout in 2015 saw nearly six million sales and a cool $500 million in revenue, whilst the Wilder v Fury rematch in February 2020 broke the gate record for heavyweight boxing, reigning in a mighty US$16.9 million. The heavyweight division, in particular, has a number of top talents who are always looking to please their fans.

In preliminary press conferences leading up to the fight, Fury has made it very clear that his intention with this next bout is to see Wilder knocked out nice and early, potentially even in the first round. Spectators and pundits will have to wait and see, but it’s looking to be yet another iconic showdown between the titans. These two have brought the entertainment in their previous two bouts and this fight is unlikely to be any different due to the clear animosity between these two heavyweights.

If you plan on splashing out on the Fury vs Wilder pay-per-view, you are sure to be in for a wild ride. However, the potential for a Fury vs Anthony Joshua looms on the horizon as it was in the planning stages before Wilder successfully claimed his right to a third fight.
