“In my 25 years in boxing, I’ve never heard of an administrative body stepping in and prohibiting a faceoff,” deBoef stated. “It’s the pinnacle moment before the fight. I am just shocked. That’s the money shot and not having that is frustrating.”

The weigh-ins for the Deontay Wilder v. Tyson Fury rematch on Friday are scheduled to begin at 6 p.m. ET. The fight will be taking place the next day inside the MGM Grand Garden Arena.
