The owner of Clark Sculptures has formed a statue of Wilder and Fury from the second fight. While the first figure showcased Fury’s sensational knockdown against Wilder, another one showed the American boxer falling to the canvas.

Veteran boxer Ricky Hatton paid a visit to this statue. ‘Hitman’ posted a few pictures on social media and revealed his day out at Tony Clark’s studio in Leeds.

As Tyson Fury is the favorite, Deontay Wilder will have to bring in the miracle. He is 1-0 down against Fury in 2 fights and it’s his last guaranteed shot at the WBC belt. The action will unfold at the T-Mobile Arena on July 24.
