Bet on Wilder vs. Breazeale Odds

Deontay Wilder

Wilder is the WBC heavyweight champion and comes into the fight with a 41-0-1 record. His lone draw was his last fight against Tyson Fury on Dec. 1 in Los Angeles. Of his 41 wins, 40 have come by knockout. Wilder is an impressive fighter, standing 6-foot-7 with tremendous power and good speed with his hands. Though some thought he was out-boxed by Fury, he still managed to send his opponent to the mat late in the fight.

Dominic Breazeale

The challenger is 20-1 over his career with 18 wins by knockout. He is the same age as his opponent tonight, 33, but has far less experience. He is coming off a ninth-round KO win over Carlos Negron. His lone loss was on June 25, 2016, a seventh-round TKO loss to Anthony Joshua. Like Wilder, Breazeal is 6-7 and also provides a lot of power. Both are also orthodox fighters.

Prediction

Experience is probably going to go a long way here. Wilder has faced much tougher competition and been in bigger spotlights than Breazeale. Boxing always provides the chance for a puncher’s upset, but Wilder showed he can certainly take a punch against Fury. Wilder is likely to connect at some point in this fight and that is going to be punching power that Breazeale hasn’t experienced yet. I definitely think Wilder will win and I would consider going with under 9.5 rounds as part of my wager.
