Today, beginning at 3:30 p.m. ET, Showtime Sports will be live streaming the full final press conference for Saturday’s main event between Deontay Wilder and Tyson Fury, which can be viewed right here on BLH. Today’s presser will be held at the Westin Bonaventure Hotel & Suites in Los Angeles, while the fight itself takes place at the Staples Center this weekend.
In this fight Wilder (40-0, 39 KOs) will be putting his WBC heavyweight title on the line while Fury (27-0, 19 KOs) aims to regain his footing as a world champion. Fury has had a long and hard road back from crippling depression and drug addiction these last two years, but he still firmly believes that he’s the best heavyweight on the planet. In fact, Fury insists the he’s still the real heavyweight champion of the world, having never been defeated since he grabbed a bunch of belts off Wladimir Klitschko in late 2015.
Wilder, of course, is just as confident in his own ability — and his fight ending power that’s always a threat to end things abruptly. He’ll be looking to make a statement and gain more bargaining leverage for a possible undisputed title unification with Anthony Joshua next year.
But for now check out what the two heavyweights have to say to one another. They’re both known to be outspoken provocateurs, and I’m sure they’ll be trying to gain every advantage possible by getting into each other’s head.
