It has been a long time coming, but the eagerly anticipated third part of the Tyson Fury vs Deontay Wilder trilogy is finally upon us this weekend. Details on how to order and watch the fight are below.
You have to go way back to December 2018 for the first fight between the two, an incredible draw, during which Fury made a miraculous recovery to get up from the canvas in round 12 with the referee counting down.
That paved the way for a rematch in February 2020 in which Fury produced arguably his greatest ever performance. The Englishman dominated from the off, knocking his opponent down twice before Wilder’s team threw in the towel in the seventh round.
The expectation was that would leave the path clear for a showdown between Tyson Fury and Anthony Joshua, but Wilder exercised his right for a third rematch and with Joshua losing to Oleksadr Usyk last month, Fury has a real chance to cement himself as the number one in the heavyweight division.
Many will expect a Fury victory, but Wilder’s record stands up alongside some of the best in the sport, and his devastating punching ability means he can never be easily discounted. Based on the first two fights, we should be in for a cracker.
