Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder entered the same vicinity again as fight week kicked off at the T-Mobile Arena on the famous Las Vegas strip.
The WBC and lineal heavyweight world champion, known as “The Gypsy King,” and the former heavyweight world champion with “The Bronze Bomber” moniker made their grand arrivals on Tuesday evening.
The heavyweight pair officially kick off fight week for their highly anticipated heavyweight title trilogy showdown this Saturday, October 9, live on ESPN+ PPV and FOX Sports PPV from T-Mobile Arena.
The resumption of one of the great heavyweight feuds, Fury vs. Wilder III fight week, began with both fighters stating their intention to settle this rivalry once and for all on Saturday night.
Speaking on the first day of a series of duties they expect to carry out this week, both fighters promised knockouts.
Fury said, “You can go to college and get a master’s degree in nearly two years. So for a boxer, that’s very easy to do.
“No matter what Deontay Wilder does, I’m still going to knock him the f–k out!”
“I see me beating him up and then knocking him out,” said Wilder. “I’m going to put on a great performance Saturday night.”
On the undercard, there will be four other heavyweight ignitions.
A jumbo one that fans won’t soon forget between Efe Ajagba and Frank Sánchez. They will contest the Continental title of the Americas of the World Boxing Council.
