We’re just a day away from what is shaping up to be the biggest heavyweight title fight in years.
On Saturday at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada, WBC heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder and lineal champion Tyson Fury will once again do battle.
The first time round their bout created a massively popular show with fight fans and indeed many sports fans the world over.
However, the final result of a draw also left people frustrated.
On Saturday night fans want to see a definitive conclusion and by all accounts both fighters are seeking to give them just that.
Boxing as a sport in America has now found itself back as a major league sport this weekend with both media giants Fox and ESPN teaming up to show the fight.
A huge statement of intent by both major corporations on their intent for the sport moving forward.
They’re treating boxing just like any other major sport which is very, very cool to see.
Boxing really is becoming popular again and this weekend will prove to be a massive springboard for the sport for the rest of 2020 and moving forward.
Everyone has had a say on who they think will win but perhaps some of the best insight comes from heavyweights themselves:
