Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder made their entrances to the ring ahead of their trilogy fight on Saturday night with both men showing off a bit of their trademark flash. The two are clashing for the WBC and lineal heavyweight championships, both held by Fury, who also won their rematch in February 2020.
After wearing an elaborate costume weighing more than 40 pounds during his ring walk for the rematch, Wilder claimed his stamina had been drained prior to even stepping in the ring, one of a litany of reasons Wilder gave for the loss. On Saturday night, Wilder, walking to the ring first for the first time in many years, was only adorned in a jeweled robe, mask and his boxing trunks.
Fury had been carried to the ring on a throne in 2020 but stepped up his game for the trilogy, led to the ring by what can only be described as a crew of men and women dressed as characters from the movie "300". Wearing a robe and helmet, Fury walked to the ring to "You Shook Me All Night Long" by AC/DC.
WWE champion Big E provided a video entrance prior to both men walking to the ring, adding another level of drama to the festivities.
