Opinions divided, but the bookies are pro Fury.
As i sit here writing this for all of you, i've had to pinch myself once or twice to convince myself that i'm not dreaming. That i, and all of you are actually going to bare witness to the trilogy fight between WBC World Heavyweight Champion, Tyson Fury and former champ, Deontay Wilder.
Yet here we are, in the early hours of Sunday morning (i live in the middle of England). The boxing world will have all eyes glued to the centre of the ring at the T-Mobile Arena, Paradise, Nevada. To see if it will be repeat for the current champion. Or, whether the Tuscaloosa native can bring the WBC strap back to Alabama.
I myself have yet to make up my mind. Fury's personal woes with the birth of his newborn daughter are well documented. He himself has admitted that this camp has been tough. But quickly brushed off talk of any problems as he suggested that all camps should be this way ... if they have done it right. Wilder seems to have been given a new lease of life after linking up with new trainer and former boxer, Malik Scott. Clips from social media posts do suggest that there has been some improvements. I think the result entirely depends on the mental state of Deontay Wilder. Popular opinion suggests that Fury is the most talented heavyweight in the World today. Although, given last week's performance, new Unified Heavyweight Champion of the World, Oleksandr Usyk would i'm sure have something to say about that. But i do wonder if Wilder has mentally recovered from the beating he suffered at the hands of Fury in February of last year. The excuses from Wilder were fast flowing. We all heard them. The thing the 'Bronze Bomber' lacks is humility. He lost to the better man, no more, no less.
This week, two of Britain's heavyweights weighed in with their opinions.
Dillian Whyte, a man who has long sought to trade hands with both of this weekend's competitors told Radio 5Live the following.
"It's a really interesting one this time because we don't know where Wilder's at or Fury's at," he said.
"You've give the edge to Fury, but a lot of things have happened in the middle, like personal things.
"Wilder, we don't know if he's recovered at all because he went on this crazy run of blaming stuff. He was acting crazy.
"We don't know where they're at fully. The smart money would pick Fury to win again, but something inside of me is saying Wilder might spring a surprise on us."
Newly retired former heavyweight David Price.
"I don't think it's an act because he's been doing it since the second fight," he said on the BBC Radio 5 Live Boxing podcast.
"It's gone on too long to be an act. He really believes in himself.
"Sometimes people lie to themselves so much they end up believing it. It's a bit of confirmation bias where you tell yourself things to make you believe it. That's where he's at.
"Instead of admitting to his mistakes and shortcomings, and trying to improve on what went wrong, he's not wrong. It's a bit narcissistic to think like that."
However, this opinion is not shared by all British heavyweight's.
Anthony Joshua seems to have changed his prediction. He seemed to be Pro-Fury over the summer. However when asked prior to his bout with Usyk last week. The former champion had this to say.
“I’m not too bothered,” Joshua told reporters last month.
“Look, because you’ve asked the question, let’s go with Wilder because he seems obsessed, like he really wants it. “He seems really focused on the task ahead, so, you know, a focused man is a dangerous man and he’s focused.
Nigh on all bookmakers, in the UK at least, suggest that Fury is the favourite and that for the chance to win anything, you need to be betting on the underdog. Unless you fancy chancing your wallet at picking a round in which either man might finish the fight.
Fight fans .... Let's get ready to rumble!!!
