Fury vs Wilder 2 LIVE: It’s time for the boxing’s World Heavyweight Championship to get settled once and for all as Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder entering the ring for their much anticipated 2020 rematch: Wilder vs Fury 2. The Wilder-Fury 2 event starts with the start of the main car at 9 p.m. EST.
The last time these two squared off it went down to the wire. Fury (29-0-1) looked comfortable throughout most of the fight, but Wilder (42-0-1, 41 KOs) came roaring back in search of a knockout blow and brought Fury to the ground with a devastating two-punch combo. Fury was able to get back up and the fight finished as a split draw. This time, Wilder plans on finishing the job.
“Fighting a guy like Fury, you have to be careful,” Wilder said at a Jan. 25 press event. “Time goes by so fast in the ring. You’re trying to do everything that you prepared for. With what he brings to the table with his boxing skills, you have to have some awareness of the clock. But with my power, it’s his job to really watch the clock and try to avoid me for 36 minutes.”
Still, Fury isn’t planning on pulling any punches. He wants the WBC heavyweight title just as badly as Wilder. So badly that he kicked his absurd diet coke habit and replaced it by religiously partaking in, uh, self care.
“We’re giant heavyweights,” Fury said at the same press event. “I’ve had 20 knockouts, so I’m very capable of knocking people out. When you underestimate someone else’s power, you usually end up unstuck. Whether I’m a great puncher or not, I don’t believe anybody else can match me with heart and determination. I’m going to put my iron will on Deontay Wilder.”
