The heavyweight division is once again on display this coming weekend as Tyson Fury defends his WBC title against Deontay Wilder. Fury is hoping to close out the trilogy of fights in emphatic fashion, while Wilder is looking to remain relevant as we look to move closer to a heavyweight unification bout.

Fury comes into the fight as a sizable but not overwhelming favorite against Wilder. He is installed at -310 to win at DraftKings Sportsbook, while Wilder is +240. Fury is the clear favorite, but it’s not such long odds that a Wilder win would be a monumental upset. It’s not a likely upset, but he’s got a puncher’s chance.

This is the third fight between the two heavyweights. The first fight finished in a draw with scorecards of 115-111 for Wilder, 114-110 for Fury, and a 113-113 draw. It finished in a draw because Wilder knocked down Fury in the 9th and 12th rounds.
