Deontay Wilder will put his WBC world heavyweight title on the line on Saturday when he takes on Tyson Fury in a rematch fans have been clamoring for ever since the judges came to a split-decision draw in their first fight in November 2018.
That bout was an epic battle which ended with one of the most thrilling rounds in recent years. Wilder, the hardest puncher in the sport at the moment, clubbed Fury in the 12th round with a hard right followed by a textbook left hook to the skull.
The elusive Fury had outboxed the American for long stretches of the fight and survived an earlier knockdown in the ninth round, but he looked destined to become another one of the Bronze Bomber's many KO victims. Incredibly, the Briton picked himself up from the canvas and finished the fight.
It was the first time either man had tasted anything over than victory in a professional boxing match, and the two remain undefeated heading into Saturday's clash at the MGM Grand Arena in Las Vegas.
