Deontay Wilder vs. Tyson Fury live streaming results updates, round by round coverage – Bloody Elbow
The WBC heavyweight championship is at stake at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, California.
Tonight (Saturday, December 1st) sees reigning titleholder Deontay Wilder (40-0, 39 KOs) put his belt and undefeated record on the line against former unified champion Tyson Fury (27-0, 19 KOs) in what is a fascinating stylistic matchup with a lot of hype behind it. Wilder is coming off the biggest win of his career against Luis Ortiz in March, rallying from almost being knocked out to brutally knock Ortiz out with his vaunted power. Fury has won a couple of tune-ups after being out of boxing due to a drug test failure, substance abuse problems, and mental health issues. In his most recent high-level fight in 2015, Fury ended the longstanding reign of Wladimir Klitschko, and he’ll be eager to hand “The Bronze Bomber” his first loss.
