The WBC and lineal heavyweight championships are on the line on Saturday night when champion Tyson Fury puts the titles on the line against Deontay Wilder. The long-awaited third fight between the two takes place on pay-per-view from T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.
The two men battled to a draw in their first meeting, with Fury largely dominating the fight aside from suffering two knockdowns. In the rematch, Fury again dominated, this time scoring a seventh-round stoppage. Wilder has refused to accept the result of the rematch as legitimate and has bulked up to try and offset Fury’s size advantage in the trilogy.
The undercard fills out in a big way with three more heavyweight contests. No more may be bigger than the rematch between Adam Kownacki and Robert Helenius in a featured bout. Kowancki is looking for revenge after a shocking upset knockout loss in March 2020 — just before the onset of the pandemic — when the veteran Helenius stopped him in front of his hometown fans. Plus, some top prospects, including Jared Anderson and Edgar Berlanga, get showcase opportunities on the undercard.
