Undefeated heavyweight boxing champion Deontay Wilder (40-0, 39 KO) puts his WBC heavyweight title on the line later tonight (Sat., Dec. 1, 2018) live on Showtime pay-per-view (PPV) from inside Staples Center in Los Angeles, Calif., when he takes on undefeated Englishman Tyson Fury (27-0, 19 KO).
While this main event fight gives Wilder the chance to knock off another worthy heavyweight fighter en route to a ridiculous 41-0 record, it’s even a bigger opportunity for Fury, who has racked off two wins in 2018 after returning from a three-year absence from the sport. A victory over “Bronze Bomber” would solidify Fury as one of the best heavyweights on the planet.
Unfortunately for “Gypsy King,” he’ll be battling the odds later tonight against Wilder. That’s because our good pals over at Bovada currently have Fury as a +135 underdog. As for Wilder, he comes in as a -165 favorite.
