Who will win Fury vs Wilder heavyweight title boxing fight?
At the time of writing, experts and punters alike are finding this a terribly difficult fight to call. Both fighters possess strong chins and enormous power.
Most experts were leaning marginally towards Wilder in recent days, but support for Fury has increased as the countdown continues and they now virtually can't be split.
As his record would indicate, Wilder tends to look for the bell-ringing knockout punch at just about every opportunity. Fury offers a little more ring craft and guile and will likely attempt to extend the fight as long as possible.
Fury has a height and weight advantage, while he is also 3 years younger than the 34-year-old from Tuscaloosa, Alabama.
With very little confidence, we'll give a slight edge to the "Gypsy King", Tyson Fury.
