One of the biggest fights of the year will take place this evening in Los Angeles, as undefeated boxers Deontay Wilder and Tyson Fury square off for the “Bronze Bomber’s” WBC heavyweight title.
Deontay Wilder enters tonight’s contest sporting a perfect professional record of 40-0. His latest victory occurred this past March in New York, when he defeated Luis Ortiz via tenth-round TKO.
Meanwhile, Tyson Fury will enter tonight’s highly anticipated title fight with a spotless 27-0 record, his latest win coming over Francesco Pianeta this past August.
“The Gypsy King” has been through a lot since defeating Wladimir Klitschko in November of 2015, as he explained to Joe Rogan in a recent interview.
The two undefeated heavyweights have combined for 58 knockouts in their 67 career fights, with Deontay Wilder holding the majority of those finishes with 39.
Tonight’s fight delivered on all levels as after some awesome entrances, Wilder and Fury went to absolute war!
Fury appeared to be getting the better of Wilder after the opening eight rounds, this before Deontay eventually dropped Fury in round nine.
“The Gypsy King” would crawl his way back and appeared to be regaining control of the fight.
However, in the final round Deontay Wilder was able to floor Tyson Fury with a massive punch.
