Tonight, the lineal champion Tyson Fury and WBC heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder will settle what they were unable to settle the first time around in the ring for millions to watch. The bout will take place at the MGM Garden Arena in Las Vegas.
The first Wilder vs. Fury match took place back in December 2018 and went 12 rounds, with the final ruling being a split-decision draw. This is one of the best heavyweight fights that has taken place in years, and we expect tonights will be no different. During the figut, Wilder dropped Fury down to the mat twice, but the "Gypsy King" got back up both times and finished out the rounds.
Since their first meeting, both fighters have won two fights each. Wilder defeated Dominic Breazeale by first-round KO in May and then six months later "The Bronze Bomber" stopped Luis Ortiz during round seven of their 2018 rematch. Fury meanwhile defeated Tom Schwarz in just two rounds in June and then he triumphed over Otto Wallin with a unanimous decision victory in September. However, during that fight, Fury suffered a cut in his right eyelid during the third round which required 47 stitches and how this wound healed will be a key factor in Saturday's big rematch.
There has been some tension bubbling up ahead of the fight for some time now. During the last press conference before the fight, the two got into a bit of a shoving match and some words were exchanged. Regardless of who you are rooting for tonight, this is sure to be a fight for the books. You won't want to miss any of the action, so we've detailed below how you can tune in live tonight.
