DEONTAY WILDER VS. TYSON FURY

Dec. 1, Showtime PPV

With the end of boxing's Klitschko era, a host of super-sized brawlers are battling for heavyweight supremacy. Anthony Joshua is widely considered No. 1 in the weight class, but Deontay Wilder owns the WBC belt. The 6'7" Bronze Bomber will put it on the line in Los Angeles against Tyson Fury, who has two inches on him, in a battle of unbeatens.

The fight has several compelling story lines. Fury, who has battled mental health issues, has fought just twice since defeating Wladimir Klitschko in 2015. And the winner could be earmarked for a spot in the biggest fight of 2019: an April showdown with Joshua.
