What happened in their last match?
The last time these two met was a rematch between undefeated and reigning WBC champion Deontay Wilder and undefeated former champion Tyson Fury, for the WBC championship. The rematch against The Gypsy King brought Deontay Wilder’s first professional loss and stripped him of his WBC heavyweight title giving him a technical knockout by the 7th round.
Since the loss, Deontay Wilder has put forth several elaborate conspiracy theories in an attempt to spin the narrative of the rivalry. Wilder’s stories range from him claiming that his entrance attire wore his legs out before the fight to accusing Tyson Fury of tampering with his gloves to gain a power advantage.
