What you need to know about Tyson Fury v Deontay Wilder III

One of 2021’s most anticipated bouts will roar into action in Las Vegas on Saturday as heavyweights Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder meet for a third time.

Britain’s Fury will defend his WBC crown against the American, who he stopped in the seventh round during their second fight 20 months ago.

It was Wilder’s first defeat of a 44-fight professional career and sparked him into accusing Fury of cheating.

The fight in Las Vegas comes after their first bout in December 2018 ended in a controversial draw.

Fury won the rematch in February 2020 with a seventh-round stoppage.

It is expected to start at 04:00 BST on Sunday.

The two boxers had a slanging match at the final press conference earlier this week.

Tyson Fury was seizing on Wilder’s list of excuses for his loss in the second fight.

The British boxer weighed 277 pounds, four more pounds than he weighed in his February 2020 rematch with Wilder.

Wilder weighed 238 pounds after coming in at a then-career-high of 231 pounds in his seventh-round TKO loss to Fury.
