Fury is 27-0 with 19 KO’s and is fighting out of Manchester, England. Fury stands just a bit taller than Wilder, at 6-8 and three quarters while Wilder is 6-7. He also fights orthodox. A former WBA (Unified), WBO and IBO heavyweight champ, he relinquished the belts back in October of 2016 due to a doping investigation. He has fought twice this year, defeating Sefer Seferi in four rounds in June. He then defeated Francesco Pianeta by 10-pround decision in August. Fury hasn’t shown the ability to finish fights as quickly as Wilder, but also seems to be more proven to go into deep waters.
