Amir Khan has predicted the outcome of Deontay Wilder versus Tyson Fury

Amir Khan Media Day

Tyson Fury’s highly-anticipated fight against Deontay Wilder is edging ever closer.

The two unbeaten heavyweights will go head-to-head in Las Vegas on December 1.

For Fury, it’s an opportunity to show just how far he’s come in the past couple of years.

The Gypsy King’s career has been on a downward path since he defeated Wladimir Klitschko three years ago.

But victory over Wilder would complete a truly remarkable comeback.

As for Wilder, he’s defending his WBC heavyweight title and attempting to show that he deserves to be considered among the very best boxers in the world.

The American is the favourite to prevail but one man who is predicting a Fury win is Amir Khan.

Amir Khan is backing Fury to win

The British boxer, who himself hasn’t fought as much as he would have liked to in recent years, backed Fury to win when asked for his prediction on Twitter on Friday.

“Fury. He always pulls it off when it matters,” Khan said.

Well, the same thought can be applied to the 40-0 Wilder, but we get what Khan is saying.

Fury’s promoter, Frank Warren, took to Twitter in the week to show off the incredible transformation in his figure over the course of one year.

Many believe Fury will attempt to outbox Wilder, happily boxing off his back foot.

But Warren has no idea how the 27-0 fighter will approach the contest.

“I feel it could turn into a fight from the beginning,” Warren wrote in his column for the Metro.

“Somebody is going to try and stamp their authority on the fight and Tyson can have a fight with anyone.

“He can stand his ground, he’s got a good chin himself and let’s not forget he’s 6 ft 9 and unlike anything Wilder has ever come up against!”

That much is true. Fury has exceptional speed and Wilder will find his unorthodox style difficult to attack.
