The Main Event: Fury-Wilder III

October 8, 2021 The Main Event: Fury-Wilder III

By: Carlos Alvarez

World Heavyweight Championship Begins Saturday (9:00 pm, ET) on ESPN+

The trilogy has arrived! Saturday night brings Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder back into the ring at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas with the WBC heavyweight title on the line. Fury and Wilder were set to meet in July before Fury and his team tested positive for COVID-19 just two weeks before the event. It’s here now, and it won’t disappoint.

 

How We Got Here: The heavyweight saga began back in 2018 when Wilder accepted Fury’s challenge. Fight 1 ended in a split decision that prompted Fury-Wilder II in 2020 — a dominating knockout in favor of Fury. Now, it’s 1-0-1 in favor of Fury, and Wilder is eyeing revenge.
