Who wins Tyson Fury vs. Deontay Wilder 3? DAZN give their predictions for the huge ...

The first bout between Deontay Wilder and Tyson Fury for the WBC heavyweight championship ended in an exciting and hotly-disputed draw. Their rematch last year saw the Brit dethrone the American in an authoritative display.

Though it looked like a late 2020 trilogy fight had fallen through, 'The Bronze Bomber' successfully forced the issue outside the ring and they will indeed run it back one more time this Saturday in Las Vegas.

Wilder has proven he can hurt Fury: how the Morecambe man got up from that final-round shot in the first fight, we may never know for sure. Wilder also maintains that he should have got the decision the first time around.

Fury, meanwhile, has proven he can get it done, and gives the ex-champ his rematch confident that he has withstood Wilder's heavy artilliery while the bout was stopped when the roles were reversed.

So, who will end up with the last laugh in fight three?

Here's what our resident fight fans had to say.

Liam Happe: Fury will score another stoppage

Deontay Wilder said his ring gear wore him out before the second fight. He said Fury smuggled an object into his glove. He said his own corner sabotaged him. It was a mass list of conspiracy theories that would make Chris Jericho circa 1998 blush. At the end of the day, he was beaten quite comprehensively. And though the first fight and Wilder's entire unbeaten run up to February 2020 shows he is more than capable of defeating Fury, his whole attitude towards his first professional defeat does not suggest he will have much to offer going forward, especially against the very man who toppled him.

Prediction: Tyson Fury via stoppage

Mark Lelinwalla: Tyson knows how to beat Deontay

Tyson Fury's beatdown of Deontay Wilder in February 2020 was so savage that it wasn't just a seventh-round TKO of a world heavyweight champion. It was an all out assault. I would have to see Wilder knock Fury out to fully believe he has recovered from that brutal loss. That's not to say it can't be done. It certainly can.

Go back and look at the first round of their rematch and you'll see Wilder catch Fury with that massive right hand cleanly. If his training with Malik Scott allows him to disguise it in any way and sit on the punch with all his weight, he could regain that green and gold WBC title. But I can't go against Fury in this trilogy. He has the confidence, the skills and more power than he's credited for. Plus, he has the tried and tested roadmap to plow through Wilder again. He should win.

Prediction: Fury by eighth-round TKO

Matt Astbury: Devastating knockout incoming

Predicting how this fight will play out is a rather easy task. Fury will prove too much for Wilder who is still shell shocked by his loss to the Gypsy King 20 months ago and I don’t expect this fight to go past the sixth round. Fury will make a statement to the heavyweight division and cement himself at number one with a devastating knockout to Wilder which could bring the curtain down on the American’s career.

Prediction: Fury by KO

Steven Muehlhausen: Another Fury beatdown

For Wilder to join Fury as a two-time heavyweight champion, he needs to mix things up. The 2008 Olympic bronze medalist can't be so reliant on his detonating right hand, despite it quite arguably being the most devastating shot in all of boxing. He possesses a better jab than people think and along with it, a solid left hook that's underrated. If Wilder goes the variety route, he has a good shot at catching Fury.

For the champion, he's just got to be Tyson Fury. Mix things up a little bit to keep Wilder on his toes but still use wrinkles in what he did 20 months ago by going right at Wilder and making him fight off the back foot. Wilder proved in the rematch when you do that, he has no answer. It's hard to see this fight being any different than what we saw in the rematch. A new trainer doesn't mean Wilder's going to instantly change his stripes. However, if Fury applies constant pressure and walks Wilder down, it's hard to imagine Wilder staying patient and not trying to swing for the fences to help him get out of trouble. You need at least two fights with a new trainer to fully feel comfortable with what they want you to do.

Wilder has three rounds to get Fury out of there, or it's going to be a long night at the office. Fury's going to not only make it past the third round, but he will stop the "Bronze Bomber" in the first round of the fight and win the trilogy.

Prediction: Fury via fifth-round TKO

Christopher Walker: Fury to overcome a few bumpy moments 

Can Deontay Wilder improve enough to turn last year’s battering at the hands of Tyson Fury in his favour? I’m not so sure. Any reversal in Wilder’s fortunes will surely depend on Fury’s build-up, which hasn’t been ideal with him enduring a number of personal problems throughout camp. If Fury isn't at his best then Wilder has enough power to win back his heavyweight crown, but the overriding feeling is that Fury survives a scare or two to keep his title with a late stoppage to close the door one of boxing’s most entertaining rivalries. 

Prediction: Fury by tenth-round stoppage

Alexander Netherton: Nobody knows anything

The great thing about heavyweight boxing is that when two men with tree trunks for arms decide to meet, it only takes one solid connection to send the other man to the canvas. That possibility becomes greater when Deontay Wilder, who seems to have been on the sirloin and sushi in anticipation of Saturday's fight, is already a prodigously strong man with a track record of clattering his fist into Fury's face with startling effectiveness. It is then compounded by Tyson Fury coming in at around 300lbs, with a hefty 6ft 9in frame allowing him the leverage and force to administer another stoppage. Add to all this that these are two of the most temperamental boxers in the division, and there is no result that should shock anybody.

Prediction: Wilder by stoppage
