Deontay Wilder meets Tyson Fury in heavyweight title fight

Graphic News

December 1, 2018 -- Undefeated WBC champion Deontay Wilder faces the returning Tyson Fury in defence of his title, at the Staples Center in Los Angeles. The victor will be handed the opportunity to seek a bout with British boxer Anthony Joshua -- the IBF, IBO, WBA and WBO title-holder -- in 2019, to unify the heavyweight division for the first time since 1999.

In March, Deontay Wilder completed the eighth defence of his WBC title, defeating Cuba’s Luis Ortiz. Wider floored his opponent twice in round 10 after surviving a 7th round onslaught by Ortiz. The fight with Fury is widely accepted as the biggest of the American’s career.

Tyson Fury is also undefeated. The “Gypsy King” beat Wladimir Klitschko in 2015 to win the WBA, IBF, WBO and IBO titles, but was later stripped of his belts due to substance abuse. Following a stint in rehab he made his comeback earlier this year and has since defeated both Sefer Seferi and Francesco Pianeta.

NEW GRAPHIC NEWS - a new website for a new era.

28 years ago — April 2, 1991 — the original Graphic News launched using a precursor to today’s websites that used email technology. These enabled infographics to be delivered electronically around the world over telephone lines. What was possible was very limited - It took 10 minutes for a 100K file to download.

Since then delivery speeds and website technology have moved on. The new website will offer the best online experience possible now, adding many new features (and offering new opportunities for the future), but still enabling existing users to select and download infographics and enjoy the distinct brand of visual journalism that is Graphic News.

Over the coming weeks I will give further information. Please contact me if you have any questions. Fiona Roberts, froberts @
