Everything you need to know ahead of the heavyweight title rematch on Saturday in Las Vegas

One of the most anticipated rematches of the modern era -- and quite possibly of all time -- is upon us in the heavyweight division. In Las Vegas on Saturday night, Deontay Wilder and Tyson Fury will run it back on the heels of their controversial split draw in December 2018. Once again, both Wilder's WBC heavyweight championship and the lineal championship status enjoyed by Fury will be the big prizes up for grabs. As the heavyweight division continues to soar back to prominence, this is a can't-miss fight as the year begins. 

The pair of top heavyweights have taken different paths to get to this rematch with Wilder scoring a pair of vicious knockouts in stopping Dominic Breazeale and Luis Ortiz in 2019. Fury, meanwhile, outclassed Tom Schwarz before needing to rally late from an awful gash above his eye to outpoint Otto Wallin. He also dabbled in WWE in the fall, performing in Saudi Arabia.

While this may be one of the biggest heavyweight title rematches in recent memory, it is still lacking some prominent titles, currently held by unified champ Anthony Joshua. Hope remains to schedule a bout between the winner and Joshua at some point to crown an undisputed champ, but politics may prevent it. Plus, the loser has a rematch clause and can ask for a 60/40 split to create a trilogy fight.
