The monumental Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder rematch is fast approaching as two titans of the sport prepare for the fight of their lives.
Las Vegas is beckoning and all eyes will be on the MGM Grand with both Fury and Wilder desperate to settle the score after their first bout ended in a controversial draw.
Fury swears blind that he was robbed in that fight and that it should never have ended in a stalemate.
However, the fact that Fury managed to see out 12 rounds was a minor miracle after Wilder sent him sprawling to the canvas on not one, but two occasions.
'The Bronze Bomber' is known for his supreme punching power with many arguing that he is easily the hardest hitter the sport has ever seen.

Wilder has looked second best in many a fight before calling on his raw strength to end it all with one swing of his arm.
It is a strategy that has served him well and on most occasions, would have won him the fight after Fury fell victim to it as well.
'The Gypsy King' is a stubborn old goat though and incredibly found a way to claw himself off the canvas to get back into the fight.
It was an inspired show of resilience and Wilder will be wondering what he needs to do to finish the job in their upcoming rematch.
Speaking ahead of the Sin City showdown, former heavyweight David Haye was keen to outline that most boxers would have been finished off by Wilder's mighty blow.
You can hear what he had to say in the video below:
"How he got up from that I'll never know.
I don't know another human being that could get up from that shot - in the 12th round and after being knocked down earlier.
"It was two shots, he caught him on the way down as well and most referees would've ended the fight immediately."
Fury's near resurrection was iconic but he will be hoping to avoid any similar circumstances in the rematch.
Steering clear of Wilder's monstrous punch will have to be priority number one and if he can do that, he should be well set to finally prove that he really was robbed in 2018.News Now - Sport News
