When Deontai Wilder bled after his debut on February 22 and played against Tyson Fury at the MGM Grand Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada, many thought their competition was over. In essence, Tyson Fury keeps the entire field away from Wilder. His unbeaten record, his heavy WBC name and unbeatable aura now belong to Fury.
For the new WBC belt holder, this changed the moment he thought it was going to happen for a long time. When the two guys first met on December 1, 2018, Fury put pressure on Fury to demand a draw, although many believe he did enough to win the match that night. However, the second anger is left without a doubt.
Although Wilder became upset and bruised with his left hand, he turned and was still far from broken. Less than 24 hours after the defeat, an experienced Wilder Fury team announced that they would immediately launch a rematch for 1/3 of the battle.
Now that Wilder has officially abandoned the route of the third battle with Rage, the time and date has been set.
The MGM Grand Hotel in Las Vegas, Nevada will meet every big man again on July 18th. Legitimate news may also surprise many in the boxing world who think Wilder should repaint first, but sponsor Bob Arum is looking forward to a decision.
“I think he will do it because I am really happy with the revenge and I know that something will happen,” Arum said. “People can change their approach and need the opportunity for revenge.”
The first battle brought about 300,000 pay-per-view purchases, and the second battle almost brought in revenue in this range of more than 800,000. Version 0.33 may attract more attention because of the selected date, because it seems ideal for any participant.
“We found that this date has become a favorite of ESPN and Fox, because it is a useless time in sports, which is ideal for wrestling,” said Arum. “After the basketball playoffs, baseball entered mid-season and there was no football. This is the right time. MGM Grand also believes this is the perfect time. ”
Wilder was silent for several days after his first career. These days, he made a statement saying that competing with Fury is only the most effective starting point.
“The conflict has just begun,” Wilder said through his social media account.
To translate Wilder’s words into reality, he hopes to win the upcoming 0.33 fight with Rage. Many people think that Fury won the first fight and Wilder stopped dramatically in the second game. If the previous WBC Dripping champion lost, but lost again, the conflict will officially end.
