Deontay Wilder vs. Tyson Fury 2 press conference

New, comments

Ahead of their highly anticipated rematch on Saturday night in Las Vegas, Deontay Wilder and Tyson Fury engaged in a heated press conference where they nearly came to blows before a single question was asked.

Wilder (42-0-1, 41 KOs) enters this bout as the reigning WBC heavyweight champion, while Fury (29-0-1, 20 KOs) carries an unbeaten record as well as his reputation as the former WBA, IBF, and WBO champion.

This is a rematch of their fight from Dec. 1, 2018, that ended in a controversial split draw. That bout saw Fury beat the count after being dropped by a hellacious knockout punch in round nine and eventually make it to the scorecards. Per CompuBox stats, Fury landed more punches in nine of the 12 rounds.
