LAS VEGAS is ready to host another exciting chapter in heavyweight history.
Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder step into the ring once again as they face-off in Sin City for the WBC heavyweight title, just as they did fourteen months ago in LA.
That fight ended in a dramatic draw after twelve rounds of iconic sporting drama, including Fury’s dramatic late resurgence after Wilder knocked him to the canvas.
When is Fury vs Wilder 2?
THIS is one of the most anticipated fights of the year and some way to kick off a packed 2020 and takes place next weekend on Saturday, February 22.
Fury is the marginal favourite to dethrone knockout king Wilder, who is still without a pro defeat and has a fearsome record of 42-1-0.
The Bronze Bomber holds the belt and the winner of this bout will be on a unification collision course with Anthony Joshua.
With the eyes of the world on Vegas, both fighters will be looking to put on a show.
As well as the main event, there’s world title action on the undercard as Charles Martin faces Gerald Washington for the IBF crown and Emanuel Navarrete goes head-to-head with Jeo Santisima for the WBC bantamweight title.
Fight night will be on Saturday, February 22 with the MGM Grand hosting what is sure to be a terrific spectacle.
