Tyson Fury (30-0-1, 21 KOs) will defend his titles in WBC and The Ring magazines on Saturday against Deontay Wilder (42-1-1, 41 KOs) at the T-Mobile Arena in Paradise, Nevada. The fight will be broadcast via a joint FOX Sports and ESPN pay-per-view.
Fury, who won his titles in his second fight against Wilder in February 2020, is making his first belt defense. He and Wilder were scheduled to fight in July, although the fight was postponed after Fury and members of his camp tested positive for COVID-19.

Wilder, who previously held the WBC title since January 2015, has not fought since his seventh round knockout loss to Fury, the first loss of his career. He and Fury had already drawn in December 2018, when he scored two knockdowns.
The winner of Saturday’s fight could move on to a unification fight with WBA (super), WBO, IBF and IBO heavyweight champion Oleksandr Usyk, who beat former champion Anthony Joshua on September 25, although Joshua has activated a revenge clause against Usyk.
