Deontay Wilder and Tyson Fury are set to enter the MGM Grand Garden Arena on Saturday night to finally settle the score between heavyweight boxing's two biggest characters.

The Las Vegas rematch is one of the most highly anticipated fights of the century, and the boxing world has been debating the outcome since Fury hauled himself off the canvas to earn a draw against Wilder in December 2018.   

With the bell fast approaching, some of the sport's most powerful figures have weighed in, revealing their predictions to Sportsmail...

Marvin Hagler - Former undisputed middleweight champion 

The Wilder right hand changes the fight. If he gets that in, it is hard for Fury to take.

Wilder won’t stand off this time — he will try to finish him. But Fury is good and moves great. He says he will go for the knockout but I don’t know. If he moves he will be hard to catch.

VERDICT: Too close to call 

Anthony Joshua - IBF, WBA, WBO heavyweight champion

I think Fury is going to win. A man who came so close the first time won’t let it go the second time. That was after a three-year layoff. Providing he’s been consistent and has got rid of the rust and the cobwebs, he should be victorious. And I want him to win!

VERDICT: Tyson Fury
