Fury & Wilder 3
Boxing is well known for its intense rivalries. Over the years, it has thrived on these rivalries. Some of the best include Ali and Frazier, Morales and Barrera, and Marquez and Pacquiao. During these battles, the men put it all on the line in hopes of proving they were the better man. These rivalries helped create some of the best boxing matches in history. Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder have already battled twice. The first bout was controversial since it ended with a decision that many fans did not agree with. Many agree that Fury took the lead until he was knocked down in the 12th round. Nevertheless, Fury climbed to the canvas. Wilder’s team thought the bout was over at this point. The bout ended with a controversial draw. During the second bout, Fury weighed 273 pounds. He admitted to gaining weight so he could knock out his opponent. He wasted no time since he floored Wilder early in the fight.
Nevertheless, Deontay got up and continued fighting. Fury would be too much for his opponent. Fury dominated Wilder from bell to bell until the fight was stopped in the 7th round. Wilder’s corner had to throw in the towel to protect its fighter. Since then, Fury has been trying to set up a British showdown against Anthony Joshua. However, that isn’t going to happen. In May 2021, an arbitration judge rules that Fury would need to honor his contractual clause and give Wilder a third fight. The build-up to the fight has been spectacular with a lot of trash-talking from both sides. The bout will take place this weekend. It is a must for any fan of the sport.
Despite some ups and downs, Bare Knuckle Fighting Championship is quickly gaining a following. Thankfully, the organization is back with another event this weekend. It should be a good one since it features a showdown between MMA veterans Melvin Guillard and Joe Riggs. Fans of MMA will remember both fighters since they fought many times in the UFC. Riggs last fought against Hector Lombard and lost due to a controversial TKO. He will attempt to pick up the pieces when he takes on Guillard. As for Melvin, he has experienced controversy as well.
In one fight, he was stopped when he was hit while down. Then, he was disqualified for hitting a downed opponent. Both men need a win. Therefore, it should be a great fight. Other fights on the card include Christine Ferea, Josh Wright, Tom Shoaff, and Taylor Starling. Once fans have stopped playing เว็บสล็อตแตกบ่อย, they should watch the upcoming BKFC show. They will not be disappointed.
While UFC has event events before UFC 267, most of them aren’t going to excite fans. The upcoming 267 event should. It has an exciting main event and a great co-main event. During the main event, light heavyweight champion Jan Blachowicz will take on aging brawler Glover Teixeira. Although both men are older, they’ve only gotten better with age. Glover has won five fights with wins over Anthony Smith, Thiago Santos, and Karl Roberson.
He will have his hands full with the light heavyweight champion. Jan is also on a five-fight win streak, but he has faced thought competition. Surprisingly, he lost to Thiago Santos before beating Luke Rockhold, Ronaldo Souza, Corey Anderson, Dominick Reyes, and Israel Adesanya. The bout should be interesting since both men always come to fight. UFC 267 also faces a bout between former champion Petr Yan and Cory Sandhagen. Dan Hooker will take on Island Makhachev. It should be one of the best UFC events of the year so it is worth checking out.
