Deontay Wilder will put his WBC world heavyweight title on the line on Saturday when he takes on Tyson Fury in a rematch fans have been clamoring for ever since the judges came to a split-decision draw in their first fight in November 2018.


That bout was an epic battle which ended with one of the most thrilling rounds in recent years. Wilder, the hardest puncher in the sport at the moment, clubbed Fury in the 12th round with a hard right followed by a textbook left hook to the skull.

The elusive Fury had outboxed the American for long stretches of the fight and survived an earlier knockdown in the ninth round, but he looked destined to become another one of the Bronze Bomber’s many KO victims. Incredibly, the Briton picked himself up from the canvas and finished the fight.

For Fury (29-0-1, 20 KOs), a win would represent the culmination of a long and difficult comeback journey after he nearly threw away his career in the two years following his win over then-undisputed champion Wladimir Klitschko in 2015.

The self-styled Gypsy King would once again be a world titleholder with victory Saturday, and thanks to his brash persona, he would be able to call the shots in the heavyweight division.

A win for Wilder (42-0-1, 41 KOs) would go a long way toward cementing his legacy as one of most fearsome and accomplished heavyweights of any era. In 43 career fights, only Fury and Bermane Stiverne have made it to the final bell.

Wilder has been criticized for his lack of all-around boxing acumen, but his power is undeniable. He’s made a great career out of utilizing a long jab and patiently waiting for opportunities to land his power shots. A win over Fury would be silence some of his critics.
