The week is finally here. One of the most anticipated heavyweight boxing matches of the last decade is upon us as WBC champion Deontay Wilder prepares to square off with lineal king Tyson Fury at Staples Center in Los Angeles. Wilder is finally getting the step up in competition he’s begged for while Fury gets his chance in the spotlight one more time. Both have eyes on a bigger prize, however, with each hoping to lure unified heavyweight king Anthony Joshua into a bout in 2019.

But first, one must emerge victorious on Saturday night. Wilder (40-0, 39 KOs) is coming off of a thunderous knockout win over Luis Ortiz in March where he was truly challenged for the first time in his career. After scoring an early knockdown, the champion seemed to be dazed after a series of blows from Ortiz. But Wilder rallied to drop Ortiz in the 10th round and score the knockout win.
Fury (27-0, 19 KOs) is coming off a pair of decision wins over Francesco Pianeta and Sefer Seferi in his first action since taking a hiatus following a decision win over then unified heavyweight king Wladimir Klitschko. With such a busy week expected, CBS Sports is providing a guide of all events taking place, plus our feature content, all in one place.
Tyson Fury faces Deontay Wilder in a huge heavyweight bout this Saturday December 1 with thousands watching ringside in LA and millions more around the world.
Fury will challenge Wilder for the one world heavyweight title he has never held at the Staples Centre in Los Angeles.
During a promotional tour ahead of the fight, Fury said: “He hasn’t got what he says he’s got. I see fear in Deontay Wilder, I could sense his heartbeat through his suit.
“I know when a man’s scared – Wilder’s terrified of me. He’s timid when he’s around me – looks at the floor, doesn’t make eye contact, all that sort of stuff. Even when he’s around me, off-stage.”
Will this translate in the ring? Here is how you can watch the fight on December 1.
What are both fighters saying?
“I can walk around here, and I can talk as good as any man in the country,” Fury said.
“But when it comes to a fight, it’s going to be a hell of a fight. Deontay Wilder: massive puncher. Me: skillful boxer. It’s going to be an epic night. This is a legacy fight … and after I win, he’s going to hire me as his publicist because I do believe I can promote Deontay Wilder back to being heavyweight champion of the world in no time.
“But there’s no shame in losing to me, because I am the greatest boxer of my generation and I can’t be beat, especially not by him.”
“He’s great for the heavyweight division,” Wilder said of Fury.
“He’s charismatic. He can talk. I’ve got a great dancing partner. He’s fearless in the ring, and he’s got a background of boxing in his blood. It’s good that he’s from another country so you get to see different cultures, different personalities from the two of us.
“You’ve got one from America and you’ve got one from Great Britain. So that’s going to make it even more pleasurable for me when I knock him out.”
