On Saturday night, February 22, Tyson Fury came through with perhaps his most brilliant performance to date in halting former champion Deontay Wilder in seven rounds.

The fight took place on a joint FOX/ESPN pay per view from the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, NV, and was a rematch of Fury and Wilder’s first fight from December of 2918. In that contest, Wilder dropped Fury twice, as the two men fought to a split-draw.

Tyson “The Gypsy King” Fury defeated Deontay “The Bronze Bomber” Wilder by seventh-round stoppage on Saturday night in Las Vegas in a big shocker. Fury (30-0-1, 21 KO’s) handled Wilder (42-1-1, 41 KO’s) very convincingly over seven one-sided rounds in a historic FOX/ESPN joint pay per view from the MGM Grand Garden Arena.

Fury and Wilder had fought to a draw in December of 2018, with Wilder registering two knockdowns, but the rematch was completely different. Fury set the tone of the fight early, took the fight to Wilder, and scored two knockdowns of his own before Wilder’s corner threw in the towel in the seventh.

On Saturday night, February 22, WBC heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder and former lineal heavyweight champion Tyson Fury will again meet inside of the squared circle.

Wilder (42-0-1, 41 KO’s) and Fury (29-0-1, 20 KO’s) will square off inside of the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, NV, in a joint pay per view being distributed by FOX and ESPN. It’s perhaps the biggest fight of the year and one of the biggest heavyweight fights in years.

WBC heavyweight world champion Deontay “The Bronze Bomber” Wilder and former lineal heavyweight champion Tyson “The Gypsy King” Fury made their grand arrivals Tuesday afternoon at MGM Grand in Las Vegas, NV, just days before their big pay per view rematch.

Fury (29-0-1, 20 KOs) came in a red Ferrari, while Wilder (42-0-1, 41 KOs) arrived shortly after in a Rolls-Royce SUV. Each man was bombarded with fans and support ahead of one of the biggest heavyweight fights in years.

Former interim title challenger BJ Flores is in Miami this week, as he will be in the corner of popular YouTube star-turned debuting boxer Jake Paul ahead of his grudge match vs. Ali Eson Gib. Paul vs. Gib will take place on DAZN later tonight, as a chief undercard attraction to WBO middleweight champion Demetrius Andrade’s title defense vs. Irishman Luke Keeler.

But I was actually more interested in Flores’ take on the looming rematch between WBC heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder and former lineal heavyweight champion Tyson Fury. The two giants face off for a second time on February 22 in Las Vegas, with everyone’s memory of their split-draw verdict from December 2018 still lingering.
