Fury-Wilder III Live Results And Highlights: Frank Sanchez Wins Via Unanimous Decision To Retain Titles

Will it be repeat or revenge when Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder battle it out for a third time?

Fury will defend his WBC and The Ring Heavyweight Titles against Deontay Wilder inside the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, today, October 9. The fighters representing Premier Boxing Champion and Top Rank will look to put on more show that fans will always remember.

Fury made his pro debut in 2008. A former English, British, and Commonwealtth Heavyweight Champion, Fury has faced and beaten the likes of Derek Chisora, Joe McDermott, and Wladimir Klitschko, the latter for the status of lineal heavyweight champion.

Wilder would beat Bermande Stiverme for the WBC Heavyweight Title in 2015. He defended the title ten times before losing to Fury in 2020. Out of 42 wins, Wilder has 41 via knockout.

Both fought in 2018, a highlight of the fight being Fury getting back up after a vicious knockdown by Wilder. It was determined a draw, which was controversial to many. In a rematch in 2020, Fury dominated against Wilder, knocking him down several times. The fight ended in the seventh round when Wilder’s corner stopped the bout.

Fury and Anthony Joshua agreed in principle to fight one another in 2021 to become undisputed heavyweight champion, but Wilder’s team stepped in and put a stop to that. Now, Wilder will look to prove he can beat Fury, while Fury will try to shut down the former champion for good.

Another fight on the card is Robert Helenius v. Adam Kownacki. Helenius, a multi-time title contender, faced Konacki back in March 2020. Inside the Barclays Center, Helenius knocked Kownacki down several times, ultimately winning the fight in the fourth round via TKO. It was the first loss of Kownacki’s career, while Helenius is on a two-fight win streak. World title contendership may be on the line.

FIGHT SPORTS will be providing live coverage of Wilder-Fury III.
