Wilder was last seen in action against Luis Ortiz back in March. “The Bronze Bomber” successfully retained his WBC heavyweight title via 10th round TKO. It was Wilder’s seventh successful title defense.
As for Fury, he’s won two straight since returning to the boxing ring. After defeating Wladimir Klitschko back in Nov. 2015, personal issues kept Fury away from the boxing ring. Suffering from depression, Fury admitted that he was close to a suicide attempt. The undefeated heavyweight scored wins over Sefer Seferi and Francesco Pianeta in his return, but many wonder if he’s ready for Wilder. MMA News will provide live coverage of the event this weekend.
