Tyson Fury vs. Deontay Wilder 3: How to Watch, Start Time, Predictions On Saturday, October 9 at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, USA Tyson «Gipsy King» Fury will meet Deontay «The Bronze Bomber» Wilder for WBC and The Ring titles in a 12-round heavyweight bout.
All eyes of the boxing world have hit Las Vegas for the heavyweight trilogy to reach its conclusion when Tyson Fury faces off with Deontay Wilder for the WBC heavyweight title. Fury earned the strap in the rematch with a devastating knockout. Now, Wilder will look for revenge on Oct. 9 inside the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.
The saga between these two behemoths has lasted nearly four full years. Fury stepped up to challenge Wilder in 2018 when the American was desperate to make a big fight and Fury was beginning his comeback from alcohol addiction. The "Gypsy King" went on to largely outbox Wilder in the first meeting, but a pair of knockdowns scored by the then champion -- including a thunderous one in Round 12 that Fury somehow came back from -- was enough to earn a split draw on the judges' scorecards. Then, in February 2020, Fury emphatically finished Wilder in the seventh round after Wilder's corner threw in the towel following numerous knockdowns.

Since the loss, Wilder has launched into an elaborate string of conspiracy theories ranging from his elaborate costume wearing out his legs before the fight to Fury having tampered with his gloves for a power advantage to his own trainer having conspired against him in throwing in the towel as Wilder wilted under Fury's big punches.
The undercard is as deep as it gets on the PPV level with each bout carrying a level of interest and each taking place in the heavyweight division. Cuban Frank Sanchez will battle Efe Ajagba in the co-main event between a pair of rising prospects. Adam Kowancki looks to get his revenge on Robert Helenius after Helenius scored a shocking upset knockout in March 2020. And top American prospect Jared "Big Baby" Anderson takes on veteran Vladimir Tereshkin to kick things off.
But that's not all you need to know about this weekend. The prelims features another heavy hitter making his return to the ring when Edgar Berlanga enters a super middleweight showdown with Marcelo Esteban Coceres. Berlanga tied the all-time record for a start to a career with 16 consecutive first-round knockouts. That streak ended in April when he earned a decision against Demond Nicholson, but he looks to restart that streak on Saturday night.
