The boxing world turns to Las Vegas on Sunday when Deontay Wilder and Tyson Fury square off in a rematch of their controversial 2018 split-decision draw. Wilder knocked down Fury twice, but Fury landed more punches and did so more accurately for the bulk of the fight.

They return to the ring at the MGM Grand Garden Arena on Saturday, February 21st with the WBC title, The Ring, and lineal heavyweight titles all on the line. There’s an argument to be made that an undisputed heavyweight champion cannot be decided until the winner of this fight faces Anthony Joshua, and I’m sure we’ll hear plenty about that if there is a clear winner on Saturday.

The betting public is backing Wilder in a big way in this fight. 75 percent of the handle and total bets placed at DraftKings Sportsbook are on Wilder winning in some form or fashion. 54 percent of the handle on winning method is Wilder by stoppage, and an additional 22 percent is on Wilder winning by points. 18 percent of the handle is on Fury by stoppage or points, and six percent is betting on a tie.

Here are current odds and betting splits at DK as of 2:00 p.m. ET on Friday afternoon.
