The WBC world heavyweight title will be on the line on Saturday night, when Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder go head-to-head in Los Angeles.

Both fighters will put their unbeaten records on the line when they step into the ring at the Staples Center.

According to data compiled by Oddschecker, Wilder, who takes his 40-0 record in the bout, is a 4/6 (-150 in moneyline terms) favorite with most bookmakers. The odds are marginally longer than those "The Bronze Bomber" had ahead of his fight against Cuba's Luis Ortiz in March, which the American entered as a 1/2 (-200) favorite.

Fury, meanwhile, is a 6/5 (+120) outsider with most bookmakers. The Briton is 27-0 and has won two fights since making his professional comeback, following a three-year hiatus after stripping Wladimir Klitschko of his WBA, IBF, WBO and IBO heavyweight titles in Dusseldorf, Germany, in November 2015.

"The Gypsy King" never defended his belts as he left the sport after testing positive for a banned substance and dealing with depression. Having ballooned to nearly 29 stone after vacating his titles and having his boxing licence withdrawn, he is again fighting for a world title and could complete an incredible comeback if he prevails on Saturday night.

The Manchester-born boxer has a two-inch advantage in height and reach over his opponent and is considered to be a technically better boxer than Wilder, who is the bigger hitter of the two.

Speaking at their final pre-fight press conference on Wednesday, Wilder was adamant he would stop Fury.

"I will knock Tyson Fury out," he said.

"They say I'm the puncher and he's the boxer but the same thing was said when I beat [Bermane] Stiverne [in January 2015]. I'm going to show you how well I can box. He will go down."

Wilder by KO, Fury on points?

The American has won 39 of his 40 fights by KO and bookmakers believe he's the more likely of the two fighters to stop his opponent. Wilder is as short as 12/1 (+1200) to win the fight in the fourth, fifth or sixth round.

By contrast, the shortest odds for Fury win in any of those three rounds are at 36/1 (+3600). At 12/1 (+1200) to Fury's 33/1 (+3300), Wilder is also the favorite to win between rounds 7-9.

However, odds for a winner between round 10-12 are closer, with Wilder as short at 22/1 (+2200), while Fury is 33/1 (+3300).

The Briton has won eight of his 27 fights by decision but faces a tall order to last all 12 rounds against Wilder.

The fight is 4/6 (-150) to finish before the 12th round and is 11/10 (+110) to go the distance, in which case the bookmaker have Fury as favorite. The 30-year-old is 2/1 (+200) to win on points, while his opponent is 5/1 (+500).

"He knows he can't outbox me, so he was trying to get personal," Fury said.

"He's trying to psyche himself up for the fight but I'm relaxed, I'm a born fighter."
