Deontay Wilder enfrenta a Tyson Fury en pelea por el título peso pesado
December 1, 2018 -- El campeón invicto de la WBC Deontay Wilder defiende su título en Staples Center en Los Ángeles, frente a Tyon Fury, quien está de vuelta en el ring. El ganador tendrá la oportunidad de buscar una pelea de unificación con el boxeador británico Anthony Joshua -- poseedor de los títulos IBF, IBO, WBA y WBO -- en 2019, para unificar la división peso pesado por primera vez desde 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.
