The Brit who calls himself the ‘Gypsy-King’ will travel to the casino city of Las Vegas and fight the American hotshot Deontay Wilder. One is an unorthodox fighter, while the other is a merchant of powerful punches. We are talking about the December 2 (UK) fight between Wilder and Tyson Fury.
Fury last fought in the States in 2013, it was against Cunningham that he won. Since that fight at the Madison Square Garden in NYC, The Gypsy King returns for the first time. He has even gone through addiction and depression and come out strong out of it. The American, on the other hand, had no such issues, though he is something of a late bloomer in boxing terms.
When does Deontay Wilder v Tyson Fury take place?
December 1 for most people in the United States. Barring a very lasting undercard fixture, the main event should start by 5 A.M. GMT in the UK. The Mandalay Bay Convention Center has the best seats to watch this fight but everyone can’t make to the Arena. That’s why you have the convenience of watching it live right on your phone with the Potato Streams app.
“But it would be a sin not to fight each other and all get in the mix. It is going to be an exciting time.”

The facts for Wilder v Fury:
Both of the boxers belong to the orthodox stance. However, Fury leans more towards an unconventional, awkward stance. Fury also has a slight advantage in height as well as the reach. Deontay however, is known to never pull a punch. When the American hits, he makes sure it’s hard. Wilder also boasts of a better Knock-out record. Though Fury’s fans will point out the fact that he has fought the meaner guys (Wladimir Klitschko) and come out on top. This will be a fight for the ages.
The repercussions may involve a fight between Tyson Fury and fellow Briton Anthony Joshua. Feasts all around!
