SHOWTIME TO AIR WILDER-FURY THIS SATURDAY
Press Release: This weekend's thrilling Deontay Wilder vs. Tyson Fury heavyweight battle, will air on Showtime this Saturday, December 8th at 9 p.m. ET/PT. The WBC heavyweight championship bout between the 6-foot-7 unbeaten American champion Wilder and 6-foot-9 challenger Fury took place on Saturday, December 1st at Staples Center in Los Angeles.
On Saturday, both Wilder and Fury performed admirably. Wilder faced the two toughest opponents of his career this year including a knockout win over Cuban slugger Luis Ortiz in March. Fury returned from a two-and-a-half-year layoff to score two wins in a span of 10 weeks before facing Wilder. On Saturday, he miraculously withstood a devastating, final-round knockdown that appeared to knock him out cold. Fury rose dramatically and continued to fight until the final bell to cap an effort that will go down as one of the greatest comeback stories in all of sports.
