With the pitstops out of the way, the gargantuan clash between Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder will see a reprise as they dance for a second time to settle qualms about their controversial split decision draw back in 2018.
The two undefeated heavyweights set to meet once again to settle their unfinished business come February 22nd at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Wilder will put his WBC title on the line for the 11th time while also trying to win the vacant The Ring as well the as lineal champion reputation of Fury which he mocked during the press conference.
“I don’t believe anybody can match my heart and determination,” said Fury during their press conference.
This is after voicing out the respect on Wilder’s impressive boxing record of 41 knockouts on his 42 wins and one draw.
Meanwhile, the undercard lineup has been announced that will usher in the most anticipated heavyweight matchup this early in 2020.
There will be two heavyweight collisions for February 22 (Feb. 23, Manila time) apart from Fury-Wiler II, Charles Martin (27-2-1, 24 KOs) will face off with Gerald Washington (20-3-1, 13 KOs), a co-promotional effort between PBC and Top Rank.
On the other hand, Emanuel Navarrete (30-1, 26 KOs) is defending his WBO super bantamweight title when he faces Jeo Tupas Santisima (19-2, 16 KOs) for Top Rank’s ”featured fight” on the undercard.
Likewise, light middleweights Sebastian Fundora (13-0-1, 9 KOs) and Daniel Lewis (6-0, 4 KO) will be the two fighters dubbed as a PBC vs. Top Rank fight.

“Tank” Davis retains WBA lightweight after UD win over Cruz

Gervonta “Tank” Davis may have fought his hardest fight so far in his boxing career but
he still stood out as the best.
He won over Mexican Isaac Cruz via unanimous decision to remain the WBA world
lightweight champion.
All three judges scored the fight, 116-112, 115-113, 115-113, all in favor of Davis.
It was the first time Davis went through the full rounds in his professional career.
However, he revealed that the reason for it was he injured his left hand midway through
the main event fight.
“I hurt my left hand in probably the sixth round but I got through it. It’s shaking but it is
what it is, that’s what comes with the spo of the head. I messed it up.
“I felt that as the fight was going on and on, he was breaking down, but I hurt my hand
so I couldn’t get him out of there,” Davis said on the post-fight press conference.
Floyd Mayweather Jr., his mentor, was also present to watch the fight.
