One of the most highly anticipated boxing matches of the year sees Tyson Fury taking on Deontay Wilder for the third time. It was all supposed to go down back in July, but the bout was postponed after Fury tested positive for COVID-19.

This showdown will now take place on October 9 at the T-Mobile Arena in Los Vegas, NV. These two heavyweight kings will fight to become the WBC World Champion as Fury puts his title on the line once again.

FanDuel Sportsbook has posted opening odds for the fight.

Fury vs Wilder III Odds

Tyson Fury has opened as a heavy -350 favorite, while Deontay Wilder is a +250 underdog. The most likely outcome seems to be Fury winning by KO/TKO, with odds set at -110.

Fury has put together a storied career and comes into this fight defeating Wilder once before. However, he hasn't boxed since taking on his rival back in February of 2020. The British boxer known as "The Gypsy King" enters with a professional record of 30-0-1 with 21 knockouts.

On the other side, Wilder certainly seems to have revenge on his mind as his loss to Fury was the first of his professional career. The 35-year-old former longtime heavyweight champion comes into this bout with a record of 42-1-1 and an impressive total of 41 knockouts.
