Deontay Wilder v Tyson Fury II: the rematch explained

Tyson Fury meets Deontay Wilder in Las Vegas on Saturday in the hotly anticipated rematch between the two for the WBC heavyweight title. The meeting between two undefeated champions of boxing is a rare occasion. However, this event comes with extra gravitas. In their previous meeting two years ago, the pair saw out a 12-round split decision which ended in controversial fashion. Despite Fury outboxing Wilder for most of the fight, two late knockdowns from Wilder saw a draw be called between the pair. Saturday night in Vegas is the next step to having, once again, a unified heavyweight champion of the world

    Narration Mistakes

    1) 1st Fight wasn't 2 years ago
    It was 14 months ago

    2) wilder has 41 knockouts in 43 fights
    Not 42 knockouts in 43 fights …

    Maybe you meant to say: wilder has knocked out 42 of his 43 opponents !
    Wilder had a points decision win and knocked out the opponent in the rematch!

    "42 knockouts in 43 fights" Sorry to be that guy but it's 41 knockouts. The first fight with Fury was a draw and his first fight with Stiverne went to points.

    Correction : Fury do things i a ring that Wilder DOESNT need to do to win a fight . Its like saying David Lemieux doesnt have the boxing abilities of canelo .Who cares, That s just not the way they fight ,these guys fight their own way . Wilder need only one shot , same thing for lemieux but sometimes they dont get the shot and they lose on scorecards , its the risk there are wellin to take to fight their way . Imo Fury is boring to watch ,Wilder is exciting to watch . Wilder by ko somewhere between round 1 and 12 😉 one more thing , Fury beat an old Klitschko on decline and got a draw against a guy he said have no boxing skill and that make him the best ?? Who else did he beat ? Be honest to answer me you will have to go on boxrec

    Sad thing is the drop off from fury and wilder to Anthony Jacobs is huge. I think both of would make short work of him.

    Fury has all of the advantages
    Height
    Weight
    Reach
    Age
    And he will still lose!
