World Boxing Council heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder and contender Tyson Fury, will fight on December 1 at the Staples Center in Los Angeles.
Wilder, unbeaten in his 40 fights (39 wins by KO), has held the WBC title since January 2015 and has successfully defended it seven times, the last of which was against previously undefeated Cuban Luis Ortiz.
For his part, Fury, former world champion, returned to the ring, after almost three years without fighting due to personal problems, but in his last fights he has shown that he is up to the task of facing quality champion Wilder.
The Brit also has an unbeaten record with 27 wins, 19 of them by knockout.
“The two best heavyweights will compete with each other. The best against the best, giving people what they want,” Wilder said.
Fury, a former world champion, beat Francesco Pianeta by points in his second fight since returning to the ring after an absence of two and a half years.
“I know you have a powerful blow, I know you’re undefeated, I know you have a tremendous mouth and I know you want to win. But you do not want it as much as I do,” said Fury.
Wilder and Fury, both undefeated, staged a promotional tour in London, New York and Los Angeles.
The winner of that highly anticipated bout will march on to face Anthony Joshua, in a match for the unification of the heavyweight world titles.
