Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder will do battle once again with the British boxer’s WBC and The Ring magazine heavyweight titles on the line.
Fury and Wilder’s first fight was in December 2018 in Los Angeles, which resulted in a split draw. The second bout came in February 2020 in Las Vegas, which resulted in Fury’s seventh-round technical knockout. Wilder’s corner threw in the towel after “The Bronze Bomber” was knocked down twice.
Neither fighter has stepped into the ring since the 2020 bout. The “Gypsy King” was supposed to fight Anthony Joshua, another top heavyweight, in the summer but Wilder’s rematch clause and an arbitrator ruling forced the match to be delayed. The original fight was supposed to take place in July but a COVID-19 outbreak in Fury’s camp forced the bout to be delayed to Saturday.
