On Saturday, Deontay Wilder will fight Tyson Fury for the WBC heavyweight title in Las Vegas. This fight will be the climax of a trilogy between the two fighters. Tuscaloosa, Alabama’s Wilder held the WBC belt beginning in 2015 and was expected to fight Anthony Joshua in the future until Fury enticed him into the ring in December 2018. Before their first battle in Los Angeles, the “Gypsy King” Fury had taken time away from sports because of his mental health, while the “Bronze Bomber” had won his previous 40 fights, 39 by knockout.
Wilder knocked Fury down twice, but Fury battled back to earn a thrilling draw and set up a tantalizing rematch for February 2020 at the Staples Center. Fury knocked out Wilder in the seventh round of their rematch to terminate the latter’s undefeated streak and Fury’s tenure as WBC champion. Wilder, 35, has offered a variety of explanations for his loss, including that he was wearing a bulky costume in the lead-up to the fight and that Fury engaged in cheating, but he will get another shot at reclaiming his title this coming Saturday.
