Heavy-handed WBC heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder (40-0, 39 KOs) is making his pay-per-view debut this December, and his opponent is the brash and controversial Tyson Fury (27-0, 19 KOs), the lineal heavyweight champ. Wilder has unreal knockout power, while the UK’s Fury is an awkward, tricky boxer who has a reputation for not being entertaining in the ring, but he’s hard to beat… hence he’s undefeated.
There’s a three-day “World Tour” set of press conferences between these two, and the final one is happening in Los Angeles, the same city of the actual fight. Their Monday presser in London saw Wilder shove Fury after Fury requested a little sparring session, but luckily things didn’t spiral out of control. Tuesday’s presser in New York was… well you tell me what’s going on with this staredown.
You can watch the video at the top of the page today (Wednesday, October 3rd) at 3:30 PM ET/12:30 PM PT, or you can catch the replay even if you don’t see it live.
Wilder vs. Fury takes place at Staples Center in Los Angeles, California on December 1st, with a Showtime PPV start time of 9 PM ET/6 PM PT.
