This weekend’s WBC heavyweight title fight between Deontay Wilder and Tyson Fury has as expected gotten the boxing universe talking.
Past and present champions have all been chiming in.
When it comes to heavyweight legends in the sport perhaps not many are best placed to give their take than George Foreman.
Like Deontay Wilder, in his day Foreman was known for his ferocious knockout wielding fists.
A fearsome prospect for anyone in his era.
Or any era for that matter.
So when he gives his take on big heavyweight title fights people tend listen rather sharply.
Speaking on social media from his official Twitter account Foreman had this to say on the fight this weekend:
Fury however has been adamant that he won’t leave it go to the judges this time.
Wilder the same.
Time will tell as they say.
The fight takes place on Saturday night at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas and will kick off at about 9pm local time in Nevada.
It will be a dual pay per view between ESPN and Fox.
An unprecedented move in the sport of boxing.
