In these battles, the men put everything on the line in the hope of proving that they were the best. These rivalries have helped create some of the best boxing matches in history. Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder have fought twice already. The first fight was controversial as it ended in a decision that many fans disagreed with. Many agree that Fury took the lead until he was knocked down in the 12e tower. Nonetheless, Fury stepped onto the canvas. Wilder’s team believed the fight was over at this point. The fight ended in a controversial toss. In the second fight, Fury weighed 273 pounds. He admitted to putting on weight so that he could eliminate his opponent. He wasted no time as he defeated Wilder early in the fight.

Nonetheless, Deontay stood up and continued to fight. Fury would be too much for his opponent. Fury dominated Wilder from bell to bell until the fight was stopped in the 7e tower. Wilder’s corner had to throw in the towel to protect his fighter. Since then, Fury has been trying to set up a British showdown against Anthony Joshua. However, this will not happen. In May 2021, an arbitration judge ruled that Fury should honor his contractual clause and give Wilder a third fight. The rise of the fight has been spectacular with a lot of chatter from both sides. The fight will take place this weekend. It is a must have for any fan of the sport.

BKFC Montana

Despite some ups and downs, Bare Knuckle Fighting Championship is quickly gaining ground. Fortunately, the organization is back with another event this weekend. This should be good as it features a showdown between veteran MMA Melvin Guillard and Joe Riggs. MMA fans will remember both fighters for having fought multiple times in the UFC. Riggs last fought against Hector Lombard and lost due to a controversial TKO. He will try to pick up the pieces when he faces Guillard. As for Melvin, he also experienced controversy.

In a fight, he was stopped when he was hit while on the ground. Then he was disqualified for hitting an opponent on the ground. Both men need a win. Therefore, it should be a big fight.

UFC 267

Although the UFC has events leading up to UFC 267, most of them aren’t going to get fans excited. The next 267 event is expected. It has an exciting main event and a large co-main event. During the main event, light heavyweight champion Jan Blachowicz will face aging brawler Glover Teixeira. Although both men are older, they only get better with age. Glover has won five fights with victories over Anthony Smith, Thiago Santos and Karl Roberson.

He will have his arms full with the light heavyweight champion. Jan is also on a five-game winning streak, but he’s had to face some thinking competition. Surprisingly, he lost to Thiago Santos before beating Luke Rockhold, Ronaldo Souza, Corey Anderson, Dominick Reyes and Israel Adesanya. The fight should be interesting since the two men always come to fight. UFC 267 also faces a fight between former champ Petr Yan and Cory Sandhagen. Dan Hooker will face Island Makhachev. It should be one of the best UFC events of the year, so it’s worth checking out.
