Across the pond this weekend the current WBC heavyweight champion and the darling of the US heavyweight brigade, Deontay Wilder makes a defence of his world title belt.

Wilder will be defending his title at the Barclays Centre in Brooklyn New York against Artur Szpilka.

But reports are filtering through that our very own world heavyweight champion Tyson Fury will be sat ringside.

Wilder and Fury have exchanged insults since Fury ripped the world titles off of Wladimir Klitschko in Dusseldorf.

No doubt the two will be exchanging words at the Barclays Centre when Wilder, as we expect, beats his latest challenger.

But, before both fighters engage in trash talk about beating each other and almost unifying the division, boot fighters need to be aware they both have mandatory defences to get through first and both fights could go either way.

But isn’t that what makes the heavyweight division so likeable, the more thought that one huge punch can see the future plans ripped up and discarded in the rubbish bin!
