Tyson Fury Defend Heavyweight Title Against Deontay Wilder

Tyson Fury hands Deontay Wilder first loss with TKO in 7th round to win WBC heavyweight title and defend lineal title.

LAS VEGAS — The biggest heavyweight fight in two decades takes place Saturday as unbeaten champions Deontay Wilder and Tyson Fury square off for the second time in their pay-per-view main event from Las Vegas. Fourteen months after they fought to a disputed split draw, Wilder (42-0-1, 41 KOs) will defend his WBC title for the 11th time against the lineal king Fury (29-0-1, 20 KOs), who rose from the canvas twice including late in Round 12 in the first fight.

Both men took different paths to reach Saturday’s main event with Wilder continuing down his devastating path with knockouts of Dominic Breazeale and Luis Ortiz. Fury took apart Tom Schwarz before needing to rally from a nasty cut against Otto Wallin and earn a decision.

Like the last great heavyweight super fight when Lennox Lewis and Mike Tyson clashed in 2002, Wilder-Fury 2 will be broadcast by two networks on PPV.
