Deontay Wilder vs. Tyson Fury 2 fight: Date, boxing undercard, odds, PPV price, card, start time

One of the most anticipated rematches of the modern era — and quite possibly of all time — is upon us in the heavyweight division. In Las Vegas on Saturday night, Deontay Wilder and Tyson Fury will run it back on the heels of their controversial split draw in December 2018. Once again, both Wilder’s WBC heavyweight championship and the lineal championship status enjoyed by Fury will be the big prizes up for grabs. As the heavyweight division continues to soar back to prominence, this is a can’t-miss fight as the year begins. 

The pair of top heavyweights have taken different paths to get to this rematch with Wilder scoring a pair of vicious knockouts in stopping Dominic Breazeale and Luis Ortiz in 2019. Fury, meanwhile, outclassed Tom Schwarz before needing to rally late from an awful gash above his eye to outpoint Otto Wallin. He also dabbled in WWE in the fall, performing in Saudi Arabia.
