We’ve had big fights already this year. But it isn’t about to end without one of the biggest fights in the world.
At least that’s how one of the fighters described the fight that will be the center of attention this weekend.
There are currently three major heavyweights in the world of boxing. And two of them will go head-to-head this weekend.
Deontay Wilder, the WBC heavyweight champion of the world, will be defending his title against Tyson Fury. The 2008 U.S Olympian will be defending his title for the 8th time.
The fight will take place in a 20ft ring – four foot smaller than the maximum permitted size. There will be 12 rounds of boxing between the biggest names in the boxing industry.

In one corner, you have the American Wilder. He is notorious for his outrageous style of boxing. If Wilder is known for anything in the world of boxing, it is knockouts. The 32 year-old has won 11 of his last 12 fights via knockouts – whether straight knockouts or technical knockouts. 4 times out of those 12, he knocked out his opponents in the 1st Round!
Talk about wild!
It is only imaginable what Deontay Wilder will do to retain his WBC title that is on the line in this bout. But this opponent may just be the toughest he has ever faced till date.
In the other corner, Wilder’s British opponent is 3 years younger. He may have weighed in 44 pounds more than the American, but Tyson Fury is no push over in the world of boxing. Having faced the likes of Vladmir Klitschko in the past, he is well versed to take on Wilder.
But Fury is just returning from a long absence from boxing – an absence that lasted for almost 3 years. This will be his third fight since returning. But how prepared is Fury for the rage of Wilder?
England’s former WBO, WBA and IBF champion of the world has successfully shed some of the fat that came with the long absence. But he will be up against a fighter that has not stopped fighting since 2013 – or more.

Most bouts of this caliber are pretty difficult to predict. But this one is even harder as both fighters are undefeated.
For Wilder, 40 fights, 40 wins (39 by knockout). For Tyson Fury, 27 fights, 27 wins (19 by knockout).
There’s been a lot of talk about how this one will be won? Will it be a short fight or a very long one, spanning all 12 rounds? Will it be a wild win or a furious win? Leave us your comments and share your thoughts with us.
