Fury-Wilder 3 experts’ picks: ‘Fury needs to make Wilder mad’

Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder will finally meet for a third time on Saturday at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas (ESPN+ PPV, 9 p.m. ET).

Fury and Wilder fought to a split draw back in 2018, and in the rematch in February 2020, Fury dominated Wilder for a seventh-round TKO victory.

After failed negotiations and multiple delays, Wilder will have a chance to get his revenge. He now has a new trainer in Malik Scott and feels confident he can stop Fury this time. His right hand is still his best weapon, but to make it count, he needs to land it against the unorthodox Fury.

Can he avoid Fury’s pressure and keep him at reach? Or is Fury going to attack him again and throw him off his game plan to score another victory?

We asked former opponents and boxing analysts for their take on the fight and their predictions.
