    About a month out so I thought I'd start a thread:

    Deontay Wilder v Tyson Fury is an upcoming professional boxing fight which will take place on 1 December 2018 at the Staples Center in Los Angeles. Defending WBC heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder will face challenger and former WBA (Super), WBO, IBF, IBO, The Ring, and lineal heavyweight champion Tyson Fury.

    Fury is going to pick him apart I think and then do they same to AJ. Tyson was on Rogan's podcast the other day and he seems like such a normal bloke, it's well worth a listen

    Agree with your prediction/analysis of what will happen in the fight.

    Yep, listened to that podcast (been busy with other shit but that's what brought this fight to the forefront of my mind). Fury seems like a great bloke.

    Two undefeated heavyweights - should be awesome.

    Haven't been excited for a boxing fight in a long time. There's nothing like a couple of heavyweights who are at the top of the tree and are undefeated going at it.

    Credit to both men for making it happen.

    Ill be watching for sure and while I love Fury and his charisma, I feel like he is underrating Wilder. Granted Wilder isnt as technical a boxer as Fury, he aint no mug

    It’s a great fight, I think Wilder stops him around the 8th/9th in a fight Fury was winning on points.

    Who do you like in the rematch?

    I can see it going either way honestly but if I had to pick a winner for my life it would be Fury

    I like them both but Fury is a bit wild and out there, so Fury I guess.

    I got Wilder by KO. His style is very similar to Marciano, I like him a lot. Refreshing for boxing imo.
