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

Boxing business is about to start booming in 2020, and it starts with the sport’s glamour division with two of the biggest heavyweights squaring off. WBC heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder and lineal champ Tyson Fury will square off in a rematch of their 2018 classic on Saturday night at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.

Fury seemingly resurrected from the dead after suffering a 12th-round knockdown against Wilder in the first time after laying motionless for seconds. The “Gypsy King” rose to his feet and continued to fight through the final bell only to have the three judges sitting at ringside render a split draw decision.

While this may be one of the biggest heavyweight title rematches in recent memory, it is still lacking some prominent titles, currently held by unified champ Anthony Joshua. Hope remains to schedule a bout between the winner and Joshua at some point to crown an undisputed champ, but politics may prevent it. Plus, the loser has a rematch clause and can ask for a 60/40 split to create a trilogy fight.

Below is all the information you need to get ready for the historic battle in Las Vegas. Be sure to check back throughout fight week for news, features and columns on the two fighters in the main event.
