The long-anticipated rematch between Deontay Wilder and Tyson Fury is here.
The heavyweights enter the ring Saturday night in Las Vegas, where they will battle for Wilder's WBC belt. The 6-foot-9 Fury, the lineal champion, weighed in at 273 Friday. Wilder, 6-7, weighed in at 231, his heaviest ever for a fight.
The two first met in December 2018, battling to a split decision draw. While that was a controversial ruling at the time, it sets up Saturday's dynamite showdown between the 42-0-1 Wilder – who has an astonishing 41 knockouts – and the Englishman Fury, who is 29-0-1 in his career.
