Tyson Fury (30-0-1, 21 KOs) will defend his WBC and The Ring magazine titles on Saturday against Deontay Wilder (42-1-1, 41 KOs) at the T-Mobile Arena in Paradise, Nevada. The fight will be broadcasted via a joint pay-per-view from FOX Sports and ESPN.
Fury, who won his titles during his second fight against Wilder in February 2020, is making his first defense of his belts. He and Wilder were scheduled to fight in July, though the bout was postponed after Fury and members of his camp tested positive for COVID-19.
Wilder, who previously held the WBC title since January 2015, has not fought since his seventh-round technical knockout defeat to Fury, the first loss of his career. He and Fury previously drew in December 2018, when he scored two knockdowns.
The winner of Saturday’s fight could move on to a unification bout with WBA (super), WBO, IBF and IBO heavyweight champion Oleksandr Usyk, who defeated former champion Anthony Joshua on Sept. 25, though Joshua has activated a rematch clause vs. Usyk.
