community news, Deontay Wilder vs Tyson Fury 2: Burning questions

It’s here: A significant heavyweight fight between two top big men in the prime of their careers. The rematch between Deontay Wilder and Tyson Fury offers a little bit of everything: power, skill and just a little bit of bad blood.

SI.com boxing writers Chris Mannix and Greg Bishop answer a few burning questions going into Saturday’s anticipated rematch.

Who has more at stake on Saturday: Deontay Wilder or Tyson Fury?

Chris Mannix: Wilder, easily. The Fury rematch is a significant piece of Wilder’s legacy. We all agree he is one of, perhaps the hardest hitting fighter ever. But if Wilder retired today, is he a Hall of Fame fighter? He has won one title. He has two significant wins, both over the same opponent. Beating Fury would flesh out that resume and (hopefully) begin a series of legacy defining fights which could include a third fight with Fury—the loser can exercise a rematch clause—a compelling fight against once-beaten Dillian Whyte and a hotly anticipated showdown with Anthony Joshua.
