WBC champion Deontay “The Bronze Bomber” Wilder and lineal champion Tyson “The Gypsy King” Fury will headline a joint pay-per-view with ESPN+ and FOX Sports handling the broadcasting and live stream pay-per-view.
The highly-anticipated heavyweight rematch between the these two charismatic undefeated heavyweights is a can’t miss event.
The controversy surrounding their first meeting in December of 2018, when the two titans fought to a Draw at the Staples Center in Downtown Los Angeles.
Some fans believed Wilder was robbed of a 12th round KO and felt the referee should have waved it off, but other fans felt that Fury was robbed of a decision because he outboxed the WBC American champion the entire fight and other than the knockdowns he was dominating the fight with his slick boxing ability.
The boxing world is eager to see how the rematch plays out. It comes down to punching power versus defensive boxing skills, and who can implement their strategy the best. All Wilder needs is one punch, and Fury will need to be as elusive as ever to avoid that right hand.
