Tyson Fury inching closer to his showdown with Deontay Wilder
Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder's upcoming outing in the squared circle will mark the final edition of their trilogy saga. Wilder goes into this fight boasting a 42-1-1 record. He has won 41 bouts via KO, a staggering statistic that speaks volumes about the power in his hands.
Tyson Fury is undefeated in his pro boxing career. Over his 30-0-1 record, Fury has knocked out 21 opponents. While this number is much lower than Deontay Wilder's, 'The Gypsy King' has shown the ability to outbox anyone in the heavyweight division.
Tyson Fury has much to lose in this heavyweight clash. He will put his WBC and The Ring belts on the line. Wilder, on the other hand, has everything to gain. After losing his WBC belt to Fury in the second fight, 'The Bronze Bomber' will look to reclaim his championship from the Brit.
The fight is set to go down on October 9th at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. The event will be broadcasted on ESPN+ pay-per-view and FOX Sports pay-per-view.
