Tyson Fury faces Deontay Wilder for the WBC heavyweight world title in a meeting of unbeaten giants on Saturday.

When is Wilder vs Fury?

The bout will be held on Saturday, December 1.

However, as it will take place at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, USA, this translates to the early hours of Sunday, December 2 in UK time.

What TV channel is the fight on?

For UK viewers, Deontay Wilder vs Tyson Fury will be shown as a BT Sport Box Office pay-per-view.

The price of the event is £19.95 in the UK, whereas in the US Showtime are charging $74.99.

Who is on the undercard?

There will be a host of talented names in LA on Saturday night, including Britain’s Joe Joyce as well as Wilder’s brother, Marsellos. Full details on who is fighting who can be seen here.

What time will the fight start?

As always with boxing’s biggest bouts, there is no set start time with a full undercard to get through.

However, it is estimated that Wilder and Fury will make their way to the ring at around 5am UK time.

This could change dramatically depending on what happens with other fights on the card.

What has been said so far?

Fury has claimed he tricked his opponent into putting his WBC belt on the line and believes he has no chance of defending it.

“I told Frank [Warren] this was the fight I wanted above all others. No more bums. So I asked him to tell Wilder’s team that he would be fighting a big fat English idiot who had only come back for the money.

“They’ve bitten off more than they can chew. I tricked them into it but they still don’t know what they’ve let themselves in for.”

The duo’s trash talking, though, stretches all the way back to 2012 when they began taking pot shots at each other on Twitter.
