As Fury showed in the first meeting, he is more than capable of out-boxing and out-classing the unbeaten world champion on his way to claiming the title. But as we know all too well, Wilder only needs to land one of his trademark bombs in order to stop a fighter in their tracks.

Who’s Fighting On the Wilder v Fury Undercard?
Boxing undercards are not usually stacked with big name fighters and more title fights, but on this occasion we will see a former world heavyweight champion on the Wilder v Fury undercard in Charles Martin. Martin was arguably gifted the IBF belt when he beat Vyacheslav Glazkov for the vacant title inside three rounds back in January 2016, and he did not hold on to it for long, losing it to Anthony Joshua inside just two rounds less than three months later. Martin has gone 4-1 since that fight and by agreeing to face an over-the-hill Gerald Washintgton on the Wilder v Fury undercard, the former IBF champion is hoping to thrust himself back into the heavyweight title picture.
“It is great to be back on the big stage,” Martin told reporters. “Wilder v Fury 2 is the biggest heavyweight fight in a long time and it’s great to be on the PPV. February 22 will get me one step closer to my goal of becoming two-time heavyweight champion. Gerald Washington is standing in my way, so it’s my job to go right through him toward my ultimate goal.”
The Fury v Wilder undercard does feature one world title fight though, with Emanuel Navarrete defending his WBO super-bantamweight belt against Jeo Santisima. This is Navarrete’s fifth defence of his belt and the exciting Mexican is determined to make a major impression in Las Vegas.
“I am motivated to make my fifth defence in less than a year and especially because I’m proud to be part of an historic card,” Navarette said when asked about the importance of featuring on the Wilder v Fury undercard. ““This is a great opportunity to put on an exhibition for the fans and showcase my talent once again.”
