Deontay Wilder has been wanting to fight Anthony Joshua. Instead of fighting that England fighter, he will be battling it out with another England fighter this weekend.

Wilder will face Tyson Fury on Saturday, December 1st at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, California. The winner will leave with the World Boxing Council World Heavyweight Championship.

The Tuscaloosa, Alabama native is 40-0 in his career. The heavy-fisted “Bronze Bomber” has 39 knockouts.

He has been out of the ring for nearly eight months. Wilder defeated Luis Ortiz via TKO in the 10th round at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York.

He has knocked out his last three opponents. Besides knocking out Ortiz, he also knocked out Bermane Stiverne, and Gerald Washington.

Wilder had an “RTD” against Chris Arreola on July 16th, 2016 at the Legacy Arena in Birmingham, Alabama. It is also knocked as a corner retirement, which is when a fight ends during a rest period after a boxer refuses to continue or the corner pulls them out.

He has had five fights ended by corner retirement.

This is the first fight at the Staples Center for Wilder in his boxing career. However, he knocked out Kelvin Price on December 15th, 2012 at the Sports Arena in Los Angeles, California for the then vacant World Boxing Council Continental Americans Heavyweight Championship.

Fury brings a 27-0 record into the fight. He has also knocked out 19 of the 27 opponents.

The Wilmslow, Cheshire, United Kingdom native defeated Francesco Pianeta in Belfast England on August 18th, 2018 in a points decision following the 10th round. He also defeated Sefer Seferi on June 9th, 2018 at the Manchester Arena in Manchester, England by a corner retirement following the fourth round.

These two were his first two fights after having a long hiatus. His previous bout prior to the Seferi fight was on November 28th, 2015. He defeated Wladimir Klitschko via a unanimous decision at the ESPRIT Arena in Germany.

This is Fury’s second fight in the Unites States of America. He defeated Steve Cunningham at Madison Square Garden on April 20th, 2013.
