Tyson Fury will defend his WBC title when he steps into the Vegas ring on Saturday evening for his trilogy fight with Deontay Wilder.
The hotly-anticipated bout between Fury and Anthony Joshua was put on ice during the summer after an American judge ruled that the former’s rematch with Wilder took priority over what would then have been a heavyweight unification fight.
Now Joshua has surrendered his belts to Usyk, it is likely those two will rematch, with Saturday’s winner instead set to face challenger Dillian Whyte.
But who will emerge with the WBC title as Fury and Wilder renew their rivalry? Ringwalks for the main event are expected at approximately 4am BST on Sunday, October 10.

What’s next in 2021?
Wilder (42-1-1, 41 KOs) has promised “redemption, retaliation, retribution” in Saturday’s trilogy fight against Fury.
He said: “I don’t have nothing to prove, I’m in a great place, a great state of mind, a lot of great people around me that have been covering me all this time. It’s nothing to prove at all.
“This right here is redemption, retaliation, retribution.”
The American is out to reclaim the belt he surrendered to Fury (30-0-1, 21 KOs) in their last meeting 20 months ago, when the Gypsy King won by TKO in the seventh round to remain undefeated.
Later this year, Canelo Alvarez has booked a November date with Caleb Plant in Las Vegas as he bids to unify the super middleweight division.
The pound-for-pound king has already stopped Avni Yildirim and Billy Joe Saunders in 2021, and now wants Plant’s IBF strap to clinch undisputed status.
