ESPN2 NEWS Analysis:   The 6’8″ Fury is a  defensive”cutie” that likes to feint, jab, move and outbox his much smaller opponents. Fury notched a career defining win over Wladimir Klitschko in 2015 then fell into a spiral of drug abuse and mental illness. The 6’7″ Wilder is an aggressive boxer/puncher that likes to shoot a long whipping jab off the hip to set up blazing combinations. Wilder’s best outing was a life and death battle with top contender Luis Ortiz in March. “The Bronze Bomber” Wilder, 33, is the most deadly puncher in the sport and it is hard to envision the relatively light-punching “Gypsy King” Fury, 30 beating the prime W.B.C. champion. Expect the big bombs of Wilder to grind down the tough but outgunned Fury by round 8. Deontay Wilder vs Tyson Fury Fight Odds have the Over/Under at 9.5 Rounds with the Over at -160 at BOVADA SPORTSBOOK
