World Boxing Council (WBC) undefeated world heavyweight champion British Tyson Fury will expose his title, in a trio, to former world heavyweight champion, Deontay Wilder , the American, in the main game of an exciting card that will take place this Saturday at T-Mobile Arena, in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Time: 9:30 PM ET
Both stars, Fury and Wilder, arrived in Las Vegas last Tuesday night, to officially kick off their long-awaited battle week of their trilogy. And, of course, interest has peaked this Friday, in an official brainstorming match that took place in the same fight scene.
On the date of the scale date, Tyson Fury, dressed and hat, hit 277 pounds, while Deontay Wilder stopped the pendulum at 238 pounds. For both, this is the maximum weight they have marked in their careers, for their commitments in the ring.
In terms of the “blood” between them, right after stepping on the scale, they did not pose in front of the media as is customary in these cases. Each ran his own show, and after making aggressive statements, each left alone.
Tyson Fury (30-0-1, 21 KOs), of Manchester, England, has held the linear heavyweight crown since dethroning Wladimir Klitschko in November 2015.
Fury knocked out Wilder in the seventh round of their rematch in February 2020; However, Wilder wanted an immediate third chance against a 6’9, 270-pound opponent.
Deontay Wilder (42-1, 41 KOs), 2008 US Olympic bronze medalist from Tuscaloosa, Alabama, won the heavyweight title in January 2015 and revived the heavyweight division, leaving fans in awe admired by his strength and charisma in the ring.
