Tyson Fury v Deontay Wilder

Share

Mike Costello will be ringside at the Staples Center on December 1st to provide world class commentary on the blockbuster heavyweight contest between the WBC world heavyweight champion and the lineal world heavyweight champion. Whoever wins will put themselves on a collision course with Anthony Joshua, who holds the WBA (Super), WBA, IBO and IBF titles.

Fury fights his most explosive opponent just 14 rounds into the comeback that follows an absence of over two-and-a-half years, and he also represents Wilder's most hard challenger.

It was all fun and games until Wilder's finger got too close to Fury's face for the Brit's liking and "The Gypsy King" then shoved his opponent away. 'Deontay [Wilder] if it ends early, Tyson [Fury] if it goes the distance.

Wilder responded by dismissing Fury as having had "his time".

"Tyson's always been the bigger fighter". 'Wilder and his team are nothing but gentlemen.' Joshua has recently defended his heavyweight belts against Alexander Povetkin and reserved Wembley Stadium for April 13 for his next opponent - which he is hoping to be the victor of Fury vs Wilder. 'Tyson won't find it as easy to avoid Deontay as he did Wladimir because this guy can move and throw.

"Because when you see a bad man you know what one looks like and when I look at him I don't see a bad man I see a pretender", said Fury.

That victory perhaps remains the finest any active heavyweight has achieved, and vowing to stop America's champion, Fury said: "It's three years since I went to Dusseldorf and kicked Klitschko's a*** all over the place". How will Fury react? "On the other hand, how will Deontay deal with Tyson taking the Mickey in the very serious business of heavyweight boxing?"

"I do not know what I am going to do". It's now you see my face, now you can't hit it.

Wilder himself appears delighted with the dunk too, sprinting away in a celebration more commonly seen after a 91st-minute victor on the football pitch.
