The two heavyweights first met in the ring back in December 2018 at the Staples Center in Los Angeles. ‘The Gypsy King‘ outboxed his American rival for most of the fight. Unfortunately, the match ended in a draw as Fury suffered knockdowns in the 9th and 12th rounds at the hands of ‘The Bronze Bomber’. 

This decision meant Wilder retained his WBC heavyweight title.

Fifteen months after their first encounter, the pair boxed in a rematch at the MGM Grand Garden in Las Vegas. The ‘Gypsy King’ dominated the fight from the moment the bell rang and dropped Wilder over 7 punishing rounds. In the seventh round, Wilder’s corner threw the towel in, declaring Tyson Fury the WBC heavyweight champion of the world.

The fight had a clause that guaranteed a rematch to the loser of the bout. The loser, however, would get the short side of a 60/40 purse split. Since their fight in 2020, both the boxers have not stepped in the ring. 

After complications arose while setting up the third fight, Fury set his eyes on the rest of the titles at heavyweight that rest on the shoulders of Anthony Joshua. In the end, it came to nothing as Wilder’s contractual right to a third fight was upheld in an arbitration hearing.
