WILDER VS. FURY PREVIEW, HISTORIC WEIGH-IN VIDEO & BOXING LEGENDS MEDIA VIDEO
Los Angeles, Ca (November 30, 2018)— It has been 15 years since the Hall of famer, Lennox Lewis, stopped Vitali Klitschko in the 6th round to remained the undisputed heavyweight champion. Since then, Los Angeles, California has not hosted a mega heavyweight match-up, and this Saturday, LA will host a great matchup between, WBC heavyweight world champion Deontay ”The Bronze-bomber” Wilder (40-0, 39 KOs) and the lineal heavyweight champion Tyson “The Gypsy King” Fury (27-0, 19 KOs). The fight will be televised on Showtime Boxing PPV from the Staples Center Arena in Downtown LA
This fight has a lot of energy. We have two undefeated world champions with two different backgrounds. On one side, we have the Alabama native, Deontay Wilder who is a U.S Olympian bronze medalist, on the other side, we have the British world Champion Tyson Fury, who beat the reigning champion Wladimir Klitschko and shocked the world.
Deontay Wilder has knocked out 39 out of the 40 men he’s faced. And has shown he fears no man. Although the Bronze-Bomber has given the public what they have been asking for years, they seem to lack any interest in the American fighter. Could it be that the heavyweight division isn’t the way it once was? Possibly, but this maybe the perfect time to give the heavyweight division hope again. Having an exciting fighter like Wilder is exactly what the division desperately needed. A man with power, a heart, and personality. Oh yeah, and more power.., and has proven to be one of the top athletes of the division. Then you bring another undefeated world champion that’s proven himself with skills and hunger to win. After facing some obstacles in life, Fury has worked and earned himself an opportunity to show the world that he can continue to go up against elite of the division.
“I hope the boxing fans around the world are going to enjoy this as much as I will. I’ve looked forward to this fight since 2011. On Saturday night, I’m going to finally get my chance to punch him in the face. Deontay Wilder is getting knocked out.” Said Fury at the final press conference.
Wilder also shared thoughts about this fight and Fury.
“I put in the hard work to make it here. I’ve grinded and worked. There’s no way I’m going to let a man come from another country and take what I’ve been building.” Said Wilder.
Boxing has been at its all-time best, but seeing a fight of this caliber finally happening in the heavyweight division, is really exciting and it’s the limón on a cup of fruta en vaso from the lovely LA local food vendors. Meaning just perfect for boxing.
Jarrett Hurd vs Jason Wellborn
This will be Hurd’s fourth title defense. The Maryland native is coming off a split-decision win over former champion Erislandy Lara, and won the WBA and IBO light middleweight titles. His challenger Jason Welborn, is fighting in the US for the first time. Although the British fighter is on a five-fight winning streak, he still has six loses and six of those loses were by way of knockout. This isn’t the most pleasant fight to make, but other more challenging opponents are fresh out a fight or are already booked with other matchups. We can never count out the brits or any fighter, but we will see if Jason can shock the world and continue with his streak
“We don’t think of Welborn as a tune-up fight. Jason Welborn is a British champion for a reason. We just want to go out there and establish the game plan we worked on in camp.” Said Hurd.
“The last two years I’ve become the best in Britain and beaten everyone they put in front of me. When people doubt me, I train even harder. I’m coming to win and I’ve got nothing to lose.” Said Welborn.
