Big Risk Big Reward
Both boxers impressive records are on the line here. A loss here for either competitor would be a major set-back in their boxing career and a knock off the top spot. The sky is the limit for the winner with the chance to eventually unify all the heavyweight belts down the line.
This rematch is expected to break box office records, as both fighters bring in a global audience and have the skills and characters to build up the competitive rivalry in the weeks approaching.
According to Kevin Iole of Yahoo Sports: “Fox Sports and ESPN+ sharing the pay-per-view and thus pushing the fight on their television and online platforms during a busy time that includes NFL playoffs, the Super Bowl and college football playoffs, the fight will get a significant boost in attention.”
Fight Fit Fury
There’s no secret that Fury wasn’t fully back in shape by the time he fought Wilder. After a long lay-off and mental health issues, Fury seems to be back on track.
A stern reminder in his last fight against Otto Wallin, reminded us and him that he’s only human after receiving a nasty cut in the fight. Overall consistency is key for Fury to keep fight fit as the rematch approaches.
Wilder’s Power & Patience
In the Luis Ortiz rematch, Wilder showed improved patience against the technically better boxer. By waiting for his moment he managed to knock out Ortiz in the 7th-round after losing every round prior on the judges score cards. The Bronze Bomber doesn’t try to win rounds, all he need is to land that power shot and it could be lights out for Fury.
