Tyson Fury is set to put his heavyweight title on the line and go to war with Deontay Wilder in their trilogy fight in Las Vegas this weekend.
The pair first clashed in December 2018, with the judges calling it a draw, before Fury delivered a masterclass in their second showdown in February 2020, stopping the American in the seventh round to claim the WBC belt.
Wilder blamed his elaborate costume for his defeat but has vowed to continue with another “special” outfit for his journey to the ring.
The Gypsy King’s also fond of an over-the-top entrance and was carried into the arena on a golden throne for their second fight.
You can expect the ring walks to provide almost as much entertainment as what’ll happen in the ring and all the key fight time information is below so you don’t miss a second of the action.
Fury v Wilder 3 Ring Walk Times
The third instalment of Fury and Wilder’s rivalry was scheduled to take place on July 24 before the Brit tested positive for COVID-19 which saw the date pushed back to Saturday October 9.
Due to the time difference to Las Vegas, the fight will be happening in the early hours of Sunday morning for viewers in the UK and Ireland. The pair are expected to make their ring walks at around 4.30am depending on the length of the undercard bouts.

Fury v Wilder 3 Prediction
Paddy’s boxing tipster Matt Gipon fancies the Gypsy King to tear up…
With Wilder’s power you can’t rule out anything but I only give the American a puncher’s chance. I don’t buy into any rumours that Fury is distracted or unfit – the unbeaten Englishman has always turned up at his best for the big bouts and he’s in a better place than he was for the first Wilder contest – if he needed a reminder of what can happen to a favourite then AJ provided that a fortnight ago.
I am not as confident that Wilder is the best he’s ever been – he’s a couple of weeks away from his 36th birthday, he looks a bit heavier than normal and, most importantly, this is by far the longest layoff of his career – for a man who never moved smoothly ring rust could be a real issue.
I think Wilder will launch some wild attacks in the first few rounds but the facts are that he’s only knocked out three opponents before round 8 in the last seven years, and they were all slow, rigid boxers nothing like Fury. After the first few rounds, and a couple of hairy moments, I expect Tyson to take control again.
Once you’ve lost once it’s easier to lose again, and when Wilder is taking a shellacking he might give up, or his gas tank might have a little less after the last defeat and with age, or the referee might close the show if he’s seen enough – ultimately, I think it’ll be another middle rounds stoppage win for the great Brit.
