Tyson Fury dropped a comment on Khabib’s post. Being a Mancunian himself, Fury wrote: “Legendary link up.” With Fury’s fight inching closer, Khabib wished the ‘Gypsy King’ good luck. He wrote: “Good luck this weekend.”

Fury currently leads in the rivalry with Wilder. He is 1 win up, with the first fight ending in a draw. A win here for Fury means curtains for the rivalry. But, Wilder looks a different man this time around, he might be looking forward to recreating a win like the one against Dominic Breazeale, 2 years ago.

Will it Fury all the way, or can Wilder pull off an upset?
