Deontay Wilder vs Tyson Fury on December 1st in LA won’t just see one of the biggest heavyweight title fights in years but now, it’s had some other top-level fights added to the card.
The card was always going to be a big draw because of the main event but now two superb fights involving top American names have bolstered it.
Premier Boxing Champions have confirmed these as the following:

You have to hand it to Al Haymon here, he’s pulled out all the stops for this big end of year show ahead of a reported new Fox budget set to kick in just before the end of the year.
While many have spoken about the demise of pay per view boxing in America it will be interesting to see however what Haymon’s new non pay per view Fox deal includes outside of just free television and cross promotion on Fox.
Expect it to surely have some streaming element too.
