The highly anticipated heavyweight rematch between Deontay Wilder and Tyson Fury is finally here.
The two squared off in an instant-classic back in 2018, producing one of the best boxing matches of the decade. But the judges’ controversial decision to call the 2018 match a split-draw left a sour taste in the mouths of both fighters and fans. Now, the long wait for the rematch is just hours away.
The event, being held at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, has already begun. But three undercard bouts will take place prior to the main event between Wilder and Fury.
It’s always tough to predict the start-time of major fights like tonight’s heavyweight title. While the event’s official start time was 9 p.m. ET, we expect the Wilder-Fury match to begin no sooner than 11:00 p.m ET – as most main events typically take a while to get going. Here’s a look at the details surrounding tonight’s big fight:
Wilder-Fury Expected Start Time: ~11:00 p.m. ET

Per usual, fans will have to pay if they wish to see the fight. But that price will be well worth it if Wilder and Fury fight like they did in 2018.
Wilder looks to defend his heavyweight title and perfect 42-0-1 record. Fury also has a perfect record on the line at 29-0-1. The two fighters have combined for 61 knockouts over their careers.
Tonight’s heavyweight bout will be a must-watch event.
