“Boxing is back,” promoter Bob Arum said earlier this week. “And as a really important sport, not a niche sport anymore.”

The two combatants last fought in December 2018. Wilder came into the fight as the undefeated defending WBC heavyweight champion and Fury came in as the former WBA, IBF, WBO, IBO, The Ring and lineal heavyweight champion.

The fight took place at the Staples Center in Los Angeles and ended in a controversial split decision. The scorecards read 115-111 Wilder, 114-112 Fury and 113-113.

It took a while for the rematch to come to fruition.

Wilder has fought twice since the first Fury fight. He defeated Dominic Breazeale and Luis Ortiz last year. Fury has also fought twice since the Wilder fight, defeating Tom Schwarz and Otto Wallin.
