Who is Deontay Wilder
At the age of 20 years old in 2005, Wilder dropped out of Shelton State Community College in his hometown of Tuscaloosa, Alabama in order to take care of his daughter who was born with spina bifida, a condition “where a baby’s neural tube fails to develop or close properly,” according to the Spina Bifida Association.
Per his profile on Premier Boxing Champions, Wilder picked up boxing in order to earn extra income. He found rapid success in the sport, winning the National Golden Gloves title and U.S. Amateur Championship in 2007, and earning a bronze medal at the 2008 Olympic Games in Beijing. From there he stacked win after win, and knock out after knock out, taking his record to 30-0 by October of 2013.
In 2015, just 10 years into his career, Wilder was a heavyweight world champion, earning the WBC title in the division by a unanimous decision after 12 rounds. Opponents were set in front of him, and he knocked them down time and time again – literally, thanks to his hammer of a right hand.

Wilder vs Fury 3 PPV Fight Tonight
The first match between Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder took place in December of 2018 at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, California. Wilder was dominant early and often against the former three-belt heavyweight world champion in Fury who had to forfeit his previous titles due to his boxing license being suspended for drug abuse.
Wilder put Fury on his back multiple times, and in the fight looked like he not only defended his title, but did so against one of the greatest contenders. When the points were tallied in the end, however, two of the three judges didn’t think Wilder won the fight outright, with one opposing judge scoring a draw, and the other in favor of Fury. “I think with the two knockdowns I definitely won the fight,” he said afterward.
The two would fight in February 2020 before the COVID-19 pandemic changed the world, and in that fight the scorecards wouldn’t be necessary.
Both Wilder and Fury added nearly an extra 20 pounds to their frames for the rematch, both looking to add enough weight to deliver knockout blows that weren’t available in the first fight. Whether the weight favored Fury or not, the challenger was victorious in the end. In the fourth round, “The Gypsy King” landed a right hook to Wilder’s left ear, causing blood to run from the ear, and noticeably impacting Wilder’s balance. He relied on the ropes of the ring to keep him up as long as possible, but Wilder’s corner threw in the towel in the seventh round when their fighter was clearly out of it.
Per the conditions of the fight, the loser would have the opportunity to ask for a rematch, a clause which Wilder attempted to activate before 2020 ended, but just wasn’t an option. The third match was originally scheduled for July 2021, but a COVID-19 outbreak in Fury’s camp postponed the fight to it’s new date this weekend.
Deontay Wilder is 42-1-1 in his career, with both the loss and the draw coming from his contests with Fury. At 6’7”, the 35-year-old Wilder possesses a stunning, tight physique, even when he climbed to nearly 240 lbs for the second installment of the trilogy.
Wilder vs Fury 3 Fight Card / Betting Odds
The current WBC World Heavyweight Title holder, Fury is the odds-favorite to win his third contest against Wilder per DraftKings. On Monday leading up to the fight, Fury received -295 to +230 Wilder, which is a decent lean toward the champion.
In the co-main event, it is a battle of the undefeateds with “The One and Only” Efe Ajagba going against Frank “The Cuban Flash” Sánchez. Ajagba, an Olympian in 2016, enters as the underdog in the sportsbooks, drawing +155 against Sánchez’s -185 in another heavyweight clash of the evening. Sánchez being the favorite is a strong move for the lesser-ranked fighter, and coming through on the designation could do him well in his title contention pursuits.
