Fury-Wilder: A Stacked Card

Promoters are quick to throw around the term “stacked” card, but tonight’s Fury-Wilder PPV card really is stacked.

Here are tonight’s odds courtesy of BetMGM:

Tyson Fury -250 vs. Deontay Wilder +210
(WBC heavyweight title)
Efe Ajagba +150 vs. Frank Sanchez -175
Robert Helenius +185 vs. Adam Kownacki -225

The only wide favorite on the main PPV is Jared Anderson at 20:1 over unbeaten Vladimir Tereshkin, but Tereshkin may be undervalued.

On the free-TV lead-in, Edgar Berlanga is a 50:1 favorite over Marcelo Coceres and Julian “J-Rock” Williams is 16:1 against Vladimir Hernandez.

The early non-televised undercard fights can be seen on the ESPN and FOX apps.

There’s also a full day of Euro action, so ten or eleven hours of continuous ring action is available for hardcore boxing fans.

  • Curious how Ajagba-Sanchez will play out. I suspect Ajagba gets completely exposed here, but he’s got enough power to cause a little doubt. With the exception of Ibeabuchi, seems there is always something missing with Heavyweights out of Africa, and Ajagba seems no different.

    Hopefully Tereshkin can at least be competitive, but I have my doubts based on the few fights I’ve seen of his. Even against the crap competition he’s faced, he doesn’t have a great KO ration (12 KOs in 22 fights). Doesn’t look particularly fast. Just watched his fights with Toth and Diaz. Both opponents looked like bean bags with arms and legs, and fought like it. This is a huge step up for Tereshkin.

    • I dont think they would risk Anderson with a live body at this point. If football was like boxing the Packers would be building up their record playing U Conn and U Mass before they play the Vikings or Bears

      • Funny you should use that example. UConn and UMass meet today to decide the worst team in the FBS. I don’t see Anderson losing to this guy.

    • I’m really interested in Ajagba-Sanchez as well. I think Ajagba is kind of mechanical and I think he might lose a wide decision here. But Sanchez can be hit and if that guy gets something on him, that might be it.

      Tereshkin doesn’t have a lot of power and he hasn’t fought in two years. I think I’d be more surprised if he won than if Berlanga’s opponent beat him.

      • @Lucie We’ll find out what type of chin each guy has tonight. Ajagba does look a bit robotic, and I suspect he gets outboxed, and maybe stopped in the mid to late rounds, but I’d be hesitant to bet on that. Haven’t bought a PPV fight in a long time, but tempted on this one.

  • I hope Wilder was properly conditioned to handle his weight gain or is it just for show?

    Can Wilder’s chin and mindset handle Fury’s weight advantage, confidence, defensive skills and hard, quick combination punches??

    I am staying with Fury to win by TKO.

  • Kiladze put Ajadga on his ass in late 2019 but was too tired to finish the job. The Nigerian has a poor defense & can’t take punches that well. When got up from that knockdown in the 5th round, he looked in really bad shape. Just ready to be taken out.
