I was looking up the pay per view price for this fight and saw it was $80.

Is that what most premier pay per views are going for these days?

Seems high. I was expecting $40 to $50.

Unfortunately that’s inflation on these this days. Also I think it’s largely because less people order so they have to keep profits up by really milking the hardcore fight fans. That said, this is a big one. 2 legit fantastic heavyweights with personalities to match facing off in a heated rematch.

It's going to be like MMA, though isn't it?  They won't fight till 12 et/9 pt at the earliest?

Thoughts on their weights?

Im a little surprised Fury is coming in this heavy.

 

Quote

The 6-feet-7 Wilder weighed a career-high 231 pounds when he stepped on the Nevada State Athletic Commission’s scale at MGM Grand Garden Arena. Wilder weighed only 212½ pounds, the WBC heavyweight champion’s lowest weight since his pro debut in November 2008, the day before he fought Fury in December 2018 at Staples Center in Los Angeles.

Wilder’s previous high was 229 pounds, for victories over Eric Molina and Damon McCreary in June 2015 and September 2012, respectively.

The 6-feet-9 Fury weighed 273 pounds Friday, 16½ pounds more than the 256½ pounds he officially weighed for their first fight. The most he has weighed for pro fight is 276 pounds, for his comeback bout against Sefer Seferi in June 2018.

Sounds like both are looking to end it early with a KO. Also some rumors Fury has an issue with a cut so he may feel he needs to go for broke early.

It is also wilders heaviest which is a risk.  But its probably a good thing as he couldnt have given up even more weight and he looked shredded.  I read last fight he had near this weight he put dude out for like 7 mins.  :shock:

 

Looking forward to seeing this.

I am sure it also stuck with him that last fight he delivered what he was certain was a the kill shot in the 12th and Fury got up and shook it right off.

I was just listening to Timothy Bradley and he's saying Fury's playing mind games with the weight. He said he's been drinking over 3 gallons of water a day and most likely comes into the ring tonight in the low 260's

Fury will make his ringwalk no earlier than 8:15 p.m. PT tonight. It could push to as late as 9:10 p.m. PT depending upon how the undercard bouts go.
