World Boxing News 19/11/2018

" "

The undercard to accompany the biggest top division fight in years, Wilder v Fury, has been officially finalized for December 1.

Deontay Wilder battles Tyson Fury to decide who lays claim to being the best heavyweight fighter on the planet at the Staples Center next week.

Televised on Showtime Pay-Per-View, Wilder v Fury is building up to a huge night in Los Angeles.

The exciting bill has a British flavor with a 200 pound plus twist. No fewer than THREE world titles are also on the line.

Co-featuring will be the unified super-welterweight king Jarrett Hurd. The American defends his belts against UK operator and former champion Jason Welborn.

Hurd holds the IBF, WBA and IBO versions after dethroning Erislandy Lara, which now leads ‘Swift’ to a PPV showcase.

Two ex-world heavyweight title challenging forces hold spots on the card as Luis Ortiz and Chris Arreola return, whilst the up and coming former Team GB star Joe Joyce bids to build on his increasing reputation.

Joyce fights Joe Hanks in a contest that will see the winner push towards a world championship chance in 2019.

At minimumweight, the vacant IBF strap is on the line as Mark Anthony Barriga tackles Carlos Licona in an undefeated collision.

With further action seeing Brits Isaac Lowe and Anthony Yarde swell the contingent from Blighty.

Finally, super-bantamweight Jesse Rodriguez gets an opportunity to impress, as does Deontay’s brother Marsellos.

The younger Wilder recently began his quest at cruiserweight and aims to go 3-0 against David Damore.
