Heavyweight boxing titans Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder are facing off this Saturday for the third time in what could be one of the biggest boxing fights of the year.
It’s a fight people didn’t initially ask for. Fury dominated Wilder in their second fight, after they fought to a draw in a contest most people believe Fury won. Given the lopsided nature of the second fight most were hoping to see a fight between Fury and Anthony Joshua.
But in a strange twist, Joshua recently suffered and upset loss to Oleksandr Usyk, which brings much more gravitas to Fury vs. Wilder fight. Maybe this is a fight between the two best heavyweights in the world.
It’s a huge fight regardless, with a bit of drama attached. Wilder has accused Fury of cheating in their second fight, repeating his accusations again in the lead up to this fight, claims Fury has repeatedly rubbished.
