We show that the broad transverse momentum distribution of the Higgs boson produced by WW fusion can provide a viable way to identify decays at the LHC, if particular kinematical configurations with large rapidity gaps are selected. We estimate the event rate of the signal and of the QCD background. We also discuss Higgs boson detection via the and decay modes.
