Bronze Bomber VS Gypsy King
Standing at an imposing 6 feet 7 inches in height, Deontay Wilder is simply a knockout artist. The 34-year old American boasts a 42-0-1 record that includes a staggering 41 wins by KO. The most recent saw the Bronze Bomber floor Luis Ortiz in November 2019 for yet another decisive victory. On the opposite side of the ring, British man-mountain Tyson Fury’s height is an even more intimidating 6 feet 9 inches.
The Manchester fan favorite will fly out to Vegas with a 29-0-1 record that features 20 wins by KO. He’s best known for defeating Wladimir Klitschko in 2015 to become the undisputed heavyweight champion of the world.
