As Wilder is the current Champ, bookies have marked him as the favourite. However, Fury surprised everyone upon his return to fighting Klitschko and surpassed expectation when he won back the WBA, IBF & WBO belts from the Russian veteran. The ‘Gypsy King’ has always shown up on the big occasions and the fight v Wilder will be exactly that. Fury’s ego is probably his best quality as a fighter. He can’t even comprehend the thought of a loss and although his opponent is one of the best heavy-hitters in the sport, the Brit just tops it at this moment in time.
As if the stakes weren’t high enough, the eventual winner of the match will probably go onto fight World Champion Anthony Joshua. AJ swerved a fight with Fury already this year when he opted to fight Povetkin in September. Whatever the outcome between Fury & Wilder, one of them will get the chance to become an Undisputed Champion when they face AJ. The last time there was an Undisputed Champion was in 1999 when Lennox Lewis beat Holyfield on points.
