Boxing: Fury vs Wilder

Next weekend the time has come: WBC world champion Tyson Fury will play his world championship belt against ex-champion Deontay Wilder (live on DAZN from around 4:00 am).  It is the third meeting between the two heavyweight giants. 

Boxing: Fury vs Wilder

"All good things come in threes," as a well-known saying goes.  The fact that the third match between Tyson Fury (30-0-1, 21 Ko’s) and Deontay Wilder (42-1-1, 41 Ko’s) takes place at all should be far more than just "good" at least for all boxing fans.  The only question is, who will have the better end on his side at that third encounter?

After the first fight, there was no winner - but neither was there a loser.  The second time it was Tyson Fury who not only secured the world title, but was also able to put the last critic in his place with a convincing TKO victory.  So now the third attempt to close the chapter "Fury vs. Wilder" - ideally, of course, with a clear victory.

But what makes this approach so interesting?  For one, both are heavyweights as they are in the book.  With their two meters tall, both protagonists cannot be overlooked.  On the other hand, there is the fascinating constellation "Boxer vs. Fighter".  The supposed boxer role was attributed to Tyson Fury right from the start - and rightly so.

It is also obvious that Deontay Wilder has earned the part of the knockouter.  The 35-year-old Wilder, who won 41 of his 42 wins by knockout, is considered one of the toughest puncher in heavyweight history.  But at the second fight, on February 22nd last year, the roles were reversed!  This time it was the "Gypsy King" who threw his adversary into the ring dust.
