WBC heavyweight world titleholder Deontay Wilder will meet lineal champion Tyson Fury in a rematch of their controversial draw in 2018. The anticipated fight is the main event of an ESPN+ PPV card Saturday night at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas. The four-fight card will begin on pay-per-view at 9 p.m. ET.
Since their first meeting, Wilder (42-0-1, 41 KOs) and Fury (29-0-1, 20 KOs) have won two fights each.
Fury dispatched Tom Schwarz in two rounds in June, and then had a tough time against Otto Wallin in September, when Fury suffered a cut in the right eyelid in the third round before escaping with a unanimous decision victory. The cut required 47 stitches after the fight and how it has healed will be a key factor in the rematch on Saturday.
ESPN boxing commentator Joe Tessitore and former world champions Andre Ward and Lennox Lewis will call the fight from ringside, with boxing insiders Mark Kriegel, Kate Abdo and Bernardo Osuna providing inside information from fighters and trainers. Former champions Timothy Bradley Jr. and Shawn Porter will join hosts Max Kellerman and Brian Kenny for analysis.
