Deontay Wilder vs. Tyson Fury

Deontay Wilder and Tyson Fury square up at a press conference on November 28, 2018

Deontay Wilder will put his WBC heavyweight title on the line on December 1 when he takes on Tyson Fury at the Staples Centre in Los Angeles.

Both fighters go into the bout unbeaten in 67 combined previous contests, with the winner expected to move one step closer to facing Anthony Joshua in a potential unification fight.

The bout is Fury's first major fight since returning from more than two years out of the ring, during which time he was stripped of the WBA, IFB, WBO and IBO heavyweight belts.
