We are just three weeks away from Deontay Wilder vs Tyson Fury 3. The fight is set to take place at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. The scoreline in the rivalry currently stands at one win for Fury and a draw. Wilder is yet to win a fight in the rivalry. He will be hoping to make a statement this time around.
