Considering the drama of their first fight — the knockdown of Fury, the controversial decision — the rematch between Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder might be the most anticipated heavyweight bout since Lennox Lewis vs. Mike Tyson almost 18 years ago.
Fury and Wilder both brought it in the first fight. Fury dominating most rounds with his slick boxing and defence, Wilder swinging wild and eventually catching Fury with a punch that would probably have killed most mortal men. Fury, however, somehow got to his feet and… won the rest of the round.
It was a fascinating fight, ending in a split decision draw that infuriated most pundits (Fury probably won the fight). But not to worry, we get to do it all over again this weekend!
This one is complex mainly because, unlike in the, title fights like this rarely have an undercard worth watching. We know when the event itself will start, but it’s trickier to know when Fury and Wilder will actually make the walk.
