Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder complete their saga as they face off for a third and final time at the T-Mobile Arena on Saturday night. Regardless of the outcome, both heavyweight fighters are guaranteed a mammoth-sized pay-day for their efforts in Las Vegas.

Wilder vies to reclaim the WBC world heavyweight title after Fury snatched it off him with a dominant performance in their second clash in February 2020.

He had held the belt since 2015 and retained it 10 times, including in an eventful and controversial split-decision draw against Fury in Los Angeles in 2018.

In the rematch, the Gypsy King showed unrelenting aggression, knocking Wilder down to the mat twice before the referee handed him a TKO victory with a seventh-round stoppage.

After beating the Bronze Bomber, Fury was eyeing a lucrative unification fight against Anthony Joshua before he lost his belts to Oleksandr Usyk last month.

But an arbitration ruled he had to face Wilder in a contractually guaranteed third bout this year. Express Sport bring you some essential information ahead of that bout.
