EXCLUSIVE: Dave Allen makes HUGE PREDICTION for Wilder v Fury

Dave Allen believes Tyson Fury will find a way to stop Deontay Wilder in their December 1st mega-fight.

Fury and Wilder recently completed a three-part press tour ahead of their December 1st clash in LA.

Outside of either man fighting Anthony Joshua, Wilder v Fury is the biggest fight that can be made in the heavyweight division.

The match-up is one that has split fans on both sides of the pond, due to their differing styles.

Those who are backing Fury, tend to think that he will use his perceived superior boxing skills to win the fight on points.

Allen, who has regularly sparred with Fury in the past, doesn’t see it that way.

“I just think Tyson will find a way to win; he always does. The fight will not go twelve rounds, whatever happens. Whoever wins it will win it inside the distance,” Allen exclusively told World Boxing News.

“I’m really confident that Tyson will win, and win inside the distance. Wilder can punch, but his chin is very suspect.

“I definitely don’t see it going twelve rounds at all.”


Although Fury has had two fights this year, his last fight of any real significance was against Wladimir Klitschko back in 2015. And in that fight, he used his awkwardness to frustrate and confuse the Ukrainian en-route to a decisive points decision.

But ‘The White Rhino’ doesn’t think the ‘Gypsy King’ will be able to employ the same tactics against the unpredictable Wilder.

“I don’t think you can do that with Wilder. Over the 36-minute duration, he will hit you at some point. I think you’re best off going for it.

“I don’t think Tyson will box; he’s a very physically strong man. I think he’ll do something different this time.” Allen stated.
