Not long now until Deontay Wilder defends his WBC heavyweight title for the second time against Tyson Fury as they both look to finally put to rest their rivalry following a controversial draw 448 days ago. Deontay Wilder left, puts his World Boxing Council belt on the line in a rematch with Tyson Fury on Saturday night in Las Vegas.
Heading into the fight, “The Bronze Bomber” hasn’t pulled any punches about making the “Gypsy King” his very own Black History Month moment. That’s after Wilder came close to securing a 12th-round KO of Fury in their first fight.
Fury has vowed to knockout Wilder in the second round having dumped Ben Davison as his trainer in favor of Javan ‘Sugarhill’ Steward, as the British heavyweight looks for more power whilst keeping his footwork and speed.
“They picked the wrong month for this fight to happen,” Wilder told DAZN News earlier in the week. “When I knock ‘The Gypsy Queen’ out, he’ll become a Black History Month trivia question.”
The Bronze Bomber will be hunting for an early knockout that keeps the Gyspy King down after dropping Fury to the canvas in the 12th round in their first fight, only to miraculously beat the count following an Undertaker-like resurrection.
Fury, who out-boxed Wilder in their initial clash, doesn’t see the WBC champ fulfilling his wish. In fact, he’s aiming to stop Wilder inside of two rounds.
Both fighters have come into this Las Vegas fight at T-Mobile Arena heavier, with the Bronze Bomber weighing 16th 7lbs and Gypsy King 19st 7lbs.
