The fight is a fascinating clash of 2 personalities – both undefeated.
TYSON FURY – “THE GYPSY KING” was born in Manchester, England in 1988 and named after boxing champ Mike Tyson. On Nov 28th, 2015, Fury knocked out longtime champ Wladimir Klitschko in a world heavyweight title showdown, for the WBA (Super), IBF, WBO, IBO, Lineal and The Ring heavyweight titles. As a rematch was being set up, Fury failed a drug test in Sept. 2016. A month later he forfeited the titles due to the test results and sought help for depression. He has never been beaten in the ring.
DEONTAY WILDER – “THE BRONZE BOMBER” His incredible knockout record speaks for itself. He has 40 fights, 40 wins and 39 knockouts. Wilder is the current WBC Champ and was an Olympic Bronze Medalist. He was born in Alabama 33 years ago. He has 2 sons and 3 daughters, one of which has special needs do to spina bifida. Although highly unknown in the USA, he is a slight favorite for the fight. Wilder looks capture the nation’s attention and put Heavyweight Boxing back on the map.
TO THE WINNER GOES THE SPOILS:
The winner of the superfight is pretty much guaranteed another big payday versus ANTHONY JOSHUA.. a British born Nigerian who holds the other championship belts that Tyson Fury forfeited. Joshua has an impressive record of 22-0 with 21 knockouts and is also a huge fighter at 6 foot 6 inches tall.. The winner of the FURY – WILDER fight would be in line for this mega bout which will be a unification of the titles, meaning just one champion of the world.
