Deontay Wilder v. Tyson Fury officially set for December 1

The winner of this bout could be the next challenger for Anthony Joshua or Alexander Povetkin

The beginning of December will kick off with a fight between two dominant fighters. Made official last night, Deontay Wilder will face Tyson Fury on December 1. The former will be defending his WBC Heavyweight World Championship. A location has not been determined yet.

This match pits two fighters with a wave of momentum on their side. Wilder (40-0) last fought in March, defeating Luis Ortiz in an epic bout. The champion has 39 knockout wins in his career. Fury (27-0) is a former multiple class champion, who is the current linear heavyweight champion. He has 19 knockout wins, and will look to make Wilder victim number 20 in December.

It is expected the winner of the fight will face off against the winner of Anthony Joshua v. Alexander Povetkin. Joshua’s next scheduled fight is on April 13, 2019, making the time between both fights a perfect setting.
The promotional tour for Wilder v. Fury begins on October 1 in London. Both fighters will continue the tour in New York City and Los Angeles.
