WBC heavyweight champion Tyson Fury returns to the ring this weekend in Las Vegas, where he will settle a long-running rivalry with former champion Deontay Wilder.
Fury (31-0-1, 21 KO’s) will meet Wilder (42-1-1, 41 KO’s) inside of the T-Mobile Arena in a joint ESPN/FOX pay per view venture that will surely shake up the division once again. The two men fought to a hotly-contested split-draw in December of 2018 in Los Angeles, as Wilder scored two knockdowns but appeared to be outboxed much of the fight. The rematch saw Fury score two knockdowns and register a commanding seventh-round TKO victory.
Heading into Saturday night, Fury appears focused and on point. Check the video below for a closer look at his thoughts on the fight and several factors leading into this weekend.
