The WBC heavyweight title will be contested by champion Deontay Wilder and challenger Tyson Fury on December 1st in a location to be confirmed next week in the United States.

Huge news for the sport of boxing that two of the top three heavyweights in the world are getting in there to exchange leather this year.

Since they met in the ring nearly a month ago to confirm their fight was on, fans were left waiting and waiting on a date (and still are on a location).

But today at least they have confirmed on camera that they have both signed the contract for the fight.

Also December 1st is confirmed.

Here’s what both men had to say:

As for Fury, he said:

Oh yes.

Heavyweight boxing and indeed the sport will massively benefit from this. Fans are going to be in for quiet the treat.

An intriguing clash of styles, the puncher vs the boxer in many ways.

Can Fury avoid the Wilder power for all 12 rounds though?

Time will tell.
