Will We See Wilder v Fury in December?

On Saturday morning, word dropped that December might get that much more interesting.

Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao seem to be conspiring to fight a rematch of their 2015 sub classic, which saw Floyd make easy work of Pacman, who came in with a torn rotator cuff.

In Tokyo, the two ultra vets met, and chatted, and then put out word of their re-do onto Instagram.

I poked around, and some network type folks don’t seem to know about it, and a Team Pacman person said he couldn’t confirm this as done deal just yet…

It got me thinking about another fight which would generate made buzz…Deontay Wilder v Tyson Fury. I’d thought we would have had deets on the when and where about the fight between the WBC heavyweight champ and the charismatic Traveller, Fury.

So, I reached out to Wilder advisor Shelly Finkel. Shelly, are we still on track to see Wilder v Fury in December?

“Yes,” Finkel answered, short and sweet.

The holiday season could be very, very merry, with sweet trinkets tucked into the stockings of boxing fans.
