Deontay Wilder vs Tyson Fury fight: PPV price, start time, record, odds, boxing undercard, date
If you’re like us, you love heavyweight boxing. And one of the biggest heavyweight title fights in recent memory is set to go down Saturday night from Los Angeles as WBC champion Deontay Wilder puts his title on the line against lineal heavyweight king Tyson Fury. Boxing’s elite and royalty will descend upon Staples Center on Saturday night (9 p.m. ET, Showtime PPV) for the massive bout.
Wilder is finally getting a true test in the ring when he squares off Fury. Both have taken incredibly difficult roads to get here, and both have their eyes set on reaching the pinnacle of the sport and becoming the undisputed heavyweight champ by facing off with Anthony Joshua later in 2019. But first, one must emerge victorious on Saturday night. Wilder (40-0, 39 KOs) is coming off of a thunderous knockout win over Luis Ortiz in March where he was truly challenged for the first time in his career. After scoring an early knockdown, the champion seemed to be dazed after a series of blows from Ortiz. But Wilder rallied to drop Ortiz in the 10th round and score the knockout win.
Fury (27-0, 19 KOs) is coming off a pair of decision wins over Francesco Pianeta and Sefer Seferi in his first action since taking a hiatus following a decision win over then unified heavyweight king Wladimir Klitschko. With such a busy week expected, CBS Sports is providing a guide of all events taking place, plus our feature content, all in one place.
