Ahead of Tyson Fury’s return to the ring on Saturday night, relive his bonafide classic against Deontay Wilder from late last year.
Fury returns to the ring this weekend to take on the prospect Tom Schwarz in a bout that could well place him on a collision course with his old foe Wilder once again.
The narrative that surrounded these two when they first laced up gloves last December was one that was truly remarkable to watch unfold.
Seemingly doomed to a state of retirement after a well-publicised fall from grace, Fury somehow managed to shed an ungodly amount of weight in an incredible amount of time before taking on one of the top pound-for-pound fighters on the world on the back of just two warm-up bouts.
The rest, as they say, was history and while the bout itself was nothing short of a thriller, the manner in which The Gypsy King was able to rebound from one of the hardest shots in The Bronze Bomber’s arsenal in the twelfth round was something that needs to be seen to be believed.
With Fury’s next fight now just hours away, what better way to get yourself excited than to watch back his showdown with Deontay Wilder.
