10 D / ST sleepers to target for Fantasy Football Week 5
Find out what time the Deontay Wilder vs. Tyson Fury trilogy will take place on Saturday night.
Deontay Wilder and Tyson Fury will finally settle the score in their long-awaited heavyweight championship fight. The two men were supposed to meet in July, but the fight was called off two weeks earlier due to a positive COVID-19 test for Fury.
Fury and Wilder have met twice before, as the first fight ended in a draw before the second fight saw Fury dominate Wilder en route to a TKO victory in February 2020.
More than a year later, boxing’s heavyweight division takes center stage as both men will be the talk of the sports world on Saturday night for the first full weekend of October. The fight should start a little after 10:30 p.m. ET, but depending on the broadcast transitions and how long the undercard portion lasts, it could be earlier or later. So it’s best to plan accordingly so fans don’t miss out on any action.
