WITH the rematch between Deontay Wilder and Tyson Fury now confirmed for February 22, what we can expect to see for six or seven weeks are a host of wildly conflicting predictions on the outcome based on the pair’s initial fight in December 2018 and all that has happened since.

The first fight, as if you need reminding, ended in a draw – a disputed one. Plenty felt Fury deserved the nod after 12 rounds, having seemingly outboxed Wilder for the most part, yet Wilder and his supporters point to two heavy knockdowns as an indication he made the greater impression and caused the greater damage on the night.

Since then, Fury has gone through the motions against the likes of Tom Schwarz and Otto Wallin, while Wilder has continued to demonstrate his incredible punch power with one-shot slayings of first Dominic Breazeale and then Luis Ortiz.
