WILDER VS. FURY: SO WILD AND FURIOUS

By Maloney L. Samaco

Tyson Fury's challenge for Deontay Wilder's WBC world heavyweight title will take place at the Staples Centre in Los Angeles. The much-awaited title fight had already been confirmed for December 1. The 21,000-seat homecourt of the LA Lakers won over the Mandalay Bay Convention Centre in Los Angeles.

In case Fury can score an upset, most likely he will face Wilder again next year because the WBC champion asked for a rematch clause in their contract.

Fury and Wilder again had to be separated and the third and final promotional press conference in Los Angeles was canceled. Wilder accused Fury of being nervous as the English boxer was insulting the American over his appearance and skinny build.

Fury pushed Wilder and when Wilder was ready to attack Fury, the security staff stood between the two of them. The conference had to be cut short for the second time in three days.

True to their names, the two heavyweight giants were wild and furious as interest for their much-sought battle grew more intense.



Deontay Wilder has held the WBC heavyweight title since 2015, becaming the first American world heavyweight champion in nine years. Before Wilder won the WBC belt, it was the longest period in professional boxing history without an American world heavyweight champion.

As an amateur the Tuscaloosa, Alabama born boxer won a heavyweight bronze medal in the at the 2008 Beijing Olympics. Thus the origin of his nickname of "The Bronze Bomber", which Wilder have after Joe Louis' monicker "The Brown Bomber".

The 32-year-old Wilder is widely known for his destructive punches, having stopped all but one of his opponents. His knockout ratio is 98%, that includes 19 knockouts in the first round. His pro record is 40-0-0 with 39 KO wins.

Wilder is presently ranked as the world's second best active heavyweight by theTransnational Boxing Rankings Board, The Ring, and BoxRec behind Anthony Joshua. He is the 15th longest reigning world heavyweight champion of all time.

The only fighter which lasted for 12 rounds was Canada's Bermane Stiverne who he dethroned via unanimous decision on January 17, 2015 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena, Paradise, Nevada, for the WBC heavyweight title.

Tyson Fury won the unified WBA (Super), IBF, WBO, IBO, The Ring and lineal heavyweight titles, after defeating long-reigning world champion Wladimir Klitschko. With the impressive victory, Fury was awarded Fighter of the Year and Upset of the Year by The Ring. His boxing record is 27 wins, 19 by KO, no loss and draw.

Fury was stripped of his IBF title for not fighting the mandatory challenger Vyacheslav Glazkov because he agreed to a rematch with Klitschko instead. Fury later vacated the WBA, WBO, IBO, and lineal titles after medical findings and personal problems, resulting to the two cancellations of the Klitschko rematch.

After more than two years of not fighting anymore, The Ring stripped him of his last title. In August 2016, Fury was ranked by BoxRec as the world's sixth best fighter pound for pound.

The Wythenshawe, Manchester, England born fighter was denied the opportunity to fight for Ireland at the Olympic Games. Later he was given the go signal to represent both Great Britain and Ireland because of his family roots in Belfast and Galway.

He then represented both England and Ireland as an amateur boxer, winning the ABA super-heavyweight title in 2008 then turned professional on that same year. The 30-year-old Fury became the British and English heavyweight titlist and also as European, Commonwealth, and Irish heavyweight champion.
