Deontay Wilder vs. Tyson Fury set to clash in Las Vegas

Deontay Wilder vs. Tyson Fury set to clash in Las Vegas

Deontay Wilder (40-0, 39 KO) will face brash British heavyweight Tyson Fury (27-0, 19 KO).

MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas will host the heavyweight clash on November 17.

Fury dispatched of Franceso Pianeta this past weekend to retain the lineal heavyweight championship.

In 2015, Fury defeated Wladimir Klitschko to win the unified WBA (Super), IBF, WBO, IBO, Ring Magazine, and lineal heavyweight championships.

Fury was later stripped of the IBF belt for not fighting a mandatory challenger due to him agreeing to a rematch against Klitschko.

Rematch plans didn’t quite pan out the way Fury had desired and he vacated the WBA, WBO, and IBO belts in the wake of failed drug test, personal issues, and failed rematch attempts against the aforementioned Klitschko.

Additionally, after a two year layoff from fighting The Ring stripped Fury of their championship.

Fury is back having defeated Pianeta and Sefer Seferi back in June to keep his undefeated record in tact.

Wilder has fought five times since Fury’s championship bout versus Klitschko in 2015.

The WBC champion retained the belt by impressively dispatching of Luis Ortiz this past March in Brooklyn, N.Y.

Wilder stands 6’7 and possesses an 83 inch reach, which will match up quite well against Fury who goes 6’8 with an 85 inch reach.

Neither man lacks self confidence and Fury is a superb salesman of fights. The matchup will be a highly anticipated heavyweight championship bout and is expected to light a fire within the division.
