Tyson Fury vs Deontay Wilder 3: Off-air footage emerges from Face Off before first fight

  • Kim Loe

Boxing fans may be a little disappointed the battle of Britain between Anthony Joshua and Tyson Fury has been put on the back burner yet again, but we can't help but be quite a bit excited about Fury's third encounter with Deontay Wilder.

Part three of the tasty trilogy is now just 18 days away, scheduled for Las Vegas on October 9.

The first fight between the two was a controversial one. Fury outfoxed and outboxed Wilder for the lion's share of the bout, but took a knockout-worthy blow in the closing stages.

While Wilder turned to the crowd satisfied his day's work was done, Fury seemingly came back from the dead and beat the count.

Onlookers were shocked to see Fury continue to dominate the closing rounds, but even more surprised when the judges scored the fight a draw.

The second fight proved as much of a showcase, with both fighters putting on a Las Vegas-worthy performance in the build-up.

Fury got his revenge, dominating the rounds and overpowering the Bronze Bomber, winning by devastating TKO in the seventh round.



The stage is now set for a fierce third fight, with both boxers confident their time has come.

While the fights themselves have been worthy of their prime pay-per-view billing, the dramas and pantomime of the build-up have been equally captivating.

The Gypsy King has become one of boxing's biggest entertainers, and his press conference antics and ability to ruffle the feathers of his opponents is second to none.

Wilder has also proven to be a showman with his own wild and weird moments, not afraid to face up to Fury in a battle of words.

The pair can be seen going toe-to-toe, exchanging entertaining insults and fiery finger-pointing.
