Tonight (Oct. 9) at the T-Mobile Arena will see WBC heavyweight champion Tyson Fury (30-0-1, 21 KOs) fight Deontay Wilder (42-1-1, 41 KOs) for the third time since 2018.
In their first matchup, Wilder was outboxed but still dropped Fury twice, including an unforgettable 12th round knockdown which Fury recovered from. The judges ruled it a split draw in a controversial outcome. There was no controversy in the 2020 rematch, as Fury put Wilder down twice and eventually stopped him in the seventh round. After a court ruling shut Fury vs. Anthony Joshua down, the trilogy was mandated (given Wilder enacted the rematch clause last year) and now it’s set to go down. We’ll see if Fury will remain the champ or if Wilder will get his belt back.
Here are the basic details on the how you can watch this trilogy, where you can catch a live stream, start time for the main event, and more.
- “I’m going to knock Deontay Wilder spark out, and it’s going to be even quicker than our last fight,” Fury said. “If he couldn’t beat me after three years out of the ring and 10 stone weight loss, he’s never beating me. None of them will. They’re just hyped-up bums. All of them. Wilder, Joshua, Usyk. They’re all bums. Compared to me, they’re no good.”
- It won’t be easy, though. ‘Bronze Bomber’ Deontay Wilder (42-1-1) has vowed to produce “a devastating knockout” and regain the belt.
- A crowd of 20,000 are already making their way to Las Vegas’ T-Mobile Arena for one of the richest fights ever. Fury will take home a guaranteed $30m (£22m) while Wilder purse will be $20m (£15m).
