It is 20 months since the heated rivals contested their rematch at T-Mobile Arena, with Fury switching tactics with a dominant, emphatic display to begin his second championship reign and end Wilder’s after five years.

They initially met in Los Angeles in December 2018, when Fury incredibly bounced back from two heavy knockdowns to go right back at Wilder in a controversial split-decision draw that will live long in the memory.

Both fighters come into tonight’s decisive trilogy contest at career-heaviest weights, with Fury at 19st 11lbs as he seeks to produce a repeat of that devastating seventh-round stoppage from last year.

Meanwhile, Wilder – now trained by Malik Scott – has put on more muscle on his way to 17st as he seeks redemption with one of those signature one-punch knockouts.

There is also plenty to look forward to on tonight’s undercard, including a heavyweight tussle between Frank Sanchez and Efe Ajagba, while Robert Helenius looks to follow up his shock win over Adam Kownacki in the rematch.

Anderson stops Tereshkin in second round

Anderson is told to use his jab and box more by his corner before the start of the second.

Tereshkin – while clearly durable – is awkward but quite cumbersome and it’s not making for a contest that is particularly easy on the eye in the early going.

But Anderson is still whipping in some heavy shots, going upstairs and then to the body and showcasing his vastly superior speed.

Tereshkin is rocked by a huge right hand and Anderson swarms him into the corner, with the referee keeping a close eye and then stepping in to end proceedings as the American unloads with nothing coming back!

A good stoppage and an easy 10th straight KO win for ‘Big Baby’, who wins the junior NABF heavyweight title.

Anderson vs Tereshkin

Anderson wasting little time showcasing his considerable power here. He looks in much better shape than Tereshkin and lands some strong early blows.

It’s a combative opening round, but definitely Anderson with the better punches and punishing some sloppy errors from the Russian.

A message from Fury for the committed UK fight fans that were sadly unable to travel to the USA to support the WBC champion tonight but are instead staying up until Sunday morning to roar him on from home…

Main PPV card up next

Fury-Wilder 3 is edging closer!

It’s time for the main pay-per-view card at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, which is an all-heavyweight affair.

First up it’s exciting two-time US national amateur champion Jared ‘Big Baby’ Anderson, who battles Russia’s undefeated giant southpaw Vladimir Tereshkin.

Anderson, who turned pro in 2019, will be looking for a 10th straight stoppage as he competes for the NABF junior title.

Berlanga beats Coceres by unanimous decision

All three cards read 96-93 in favour of Edgar Berlanga, who takes the vacant NABO super-middleweight title.

Though he’s graceful in defeat, Coceres’ team are visibly unhappy by those scores and there are boos and whistles from the crowd at T-Mobile Arena.

I think Berlanga did enough, but that fight proved he still has a lot to learn before realising his full potential.

Berlanga vs Coceres

Coceres looking to detonate that right over the top whenever possible, landing another but then Berlanga ends much the stronger with some heavy rights of his own.

This is close and the knockdown may have changed things, but Berlanga likely did enough overall to claim the decision.

Again we go to the cards after 10 captivating rounds of boxing in Las Vegas. Is there another upset coming?

Both men feel they’ve won it.

Berlanga vs Coceres

Lying on the canvas, Berlanga beat his chest in frustration after going for a big shot of his own and getting knocked down with what was an absolutely brilliant right hand over the top from Coceres… even more impressive when you consider that Coceres can’t be able to see at all out of that horribly swollen right eye now.

The 10th and final round is perfectly poised! Coceres will feel he can win this now.

Berlanga vs Coceres

Nice work initially in the ninth from Berlanga, keeping up the intensity with some quality shots, with the right eye of Coceres now almost completely closed up!

But then he knocks Berlanga down with a massive right over the top! Huge drama in the ninth round!

Coceres goes for the finish but Berlanga makes it to the bell. Wow!
