Tyson Fury (30-0-1) will face Deontay Wilder (42-1-1) for the WBC and The Ring heavyweight titles on Saturday at the T-Mobile Arena in Paradise, Nevada. The fight will be broadcasted via a joint pay-per-view with ESPN and Fox.
Fury, who is ranked as the No. 1 heavyweight by ESPN, is making his first defense of his titles against Wilder, who he defeated via a seventh-round knockout in February 2020. It was their second fight against each other, as they drew in a bout in December 2018.
Ahead of this fight, Fury vowed to “smash Wilder to bits” and called it a “make-or-break” bout for Wilder.
“I’m going to go all guns blazing, full out attack, all infantry, straight out the door from round one until I finish this,” Fury said. “It’s either going to be me, or Wilder.”
This bout is expected to settle the score between Fury and Wilder and set up a potential unification fight with Oleksandr Usyk, who defeated Anthony Joshua to win the WBA (super), IBF, WBO and IBO heavyweight titles on Sept. 25, or Joshua. That fight could take place in late 2022 or early 2023 after Usyk’s victory.
