Just when you thought that knocking “The Monster Among Men” Braun Strowman was enough, the undefeated former unified WBA (Super), IBF, WBO, IBO, The Ring, and lineal champion Tyson Fury returns for an even bigger fight. On February 22nd, 2020, an epic rematch is happening between Fury and his old rival, Deontay Wilder, at the MGM Grand Garden Arena, Paradise, Nevada. Boxing fans around the world, this is the duel of the year, and it shouldn’t be missed. Therefore, here’s how you can stream Fury vs Wilder 2 live anywhere.
Tyson Fury vs. Deontay Wilder Live Global Streaming
Fury had a pretty good 2019 after he defeated a pair of unheralded names in Tom Schwarz and Otto Wallin. He also took part in a WWE showdown against Braun Strowman at Crown Jewel in Saudi Arabia.
However, the past comes haunting back as on February 22nd, 2020; he’ll have a chance to win the WBC and vacant The Ring, and lineal heavyweight titles if he scores a victory against an old foe in Deontay Wilder.
Now, most of you cannot attend the fight to see it live. However, there are a couple of ways you can stream it. There are several official broadcasters around the world. Here’s everything you need to know.
Fury vs Wilder in the United States
In the United States, fans can tune in to the fist action via two channels.
The bout will be a joint PPV between ESPN, with whom Top Rank has an exclusive deal (Tyson Fury), and Fox, which has a deal with Premier Boxing Champions, where Wilder fights.
There have been talks before, but both promotions did not reach an agreement up till now. According to The Athletic’s Mike Coppinger:
“Sources: Deontay Wilder-Tyson Fury II will be an ESPN production using that broadcast team. Agreement calls for any future ESPN-FOX PPV collaboration – Wilder-Fury III? – to be a FOX production. Fight will be promoted on both networks with shoulder programming, commercials, etc.”
If that’s the case, American buyers should expect the event to be at the $70 to $100 range for HD. That is if we compare it to Wilder’s last fight with Luis Ortiz as it was sold at $74.99. If you’re using Fox Sports, the price is at $79.99, plus applicable taxes & fees.
Up till now, there’s no word of how much will the fight cost for ESPN+ subscribers, but we can assume it’s going to be the same as Fox Sports; It’s a collaboration.
This fight is a new beginning for future joint events between the two promotions. In the past few years, boxing quality was overshadowed with what’s not happening rather than what is.
Now, with such a deal, boxing fans will expect a lot of Top Rank vs. PBC fights. As for the February legendary bout, once you purchase it, you can stream it live on any of those devices depending on your channel:
Amazon Fire Stick
Samsung Smart TV
The Gypsy King vs. The Bronze Bomber in the UK
A fight like this can only be described as the first mega-fight of the new decade.
That’s why in the UK, huge offers have been made by television giants to secure the rights to it.
BT Sport won the rights to the mega-fight by bidding off a reported bid of more than £10m by Sky Sports Box Office.
Sky did its best to snatch those rights, but in the end, BT Sports stood tall.
The company hopes Fury vs. Wilder 2 could break the UK record of 1.6 million buys gained by Anthony Joshua’s rematch against Andy Ruiz Jr back in December, which was broadcast on Sky.
When Joshua vs. Ruiz was on, their fight cost £24.95, and Sky generated more than £40m in sales revenue alone before advertising income. When BT showed Wilder vs. Fury back in 2018, it only charged £19.99 for the fight.
We still don’t know whether the price would be the same this year or not, but we’re quite sure it’s not getting any cheaper.
Moreover, according to The Daily Mail, the fight won’t be just available for BT’s regular customers. On the contrary, non-subscribers will get to see the fight as well through a variety of TV channels.
Now, if you already have an account, download the BT Sport app, and watch Wilder vs. Fury II live on:
Samsung Smart TV
Stream the Fight Live in Australia
Now, this is not confirmed yet, but judging by where the previous fight was broadcast in 2018, we assume that none other than Main Event will bring Wilder and Fury back to the small screen.
Main Event is well known to offer a wide variety of combat sports in Australia. That includes the likes of UFC, WWE, and of course, boxing. The previous fight cost $49.95, and this one would cost so as well.
For the time being, Main Event has not confirmed anything about the event. They don’t do that until a couple of weeks before the fight is due. If you enter their Upcoming Events section and click on Boxing, the following message will pop up:
“No programs are currently scheduled – STAY TUNED for upcoming events.”
Once the fight is up for grabs, purchase it, and you can watch live on a wide variety of devices such as Chromecast, PlayStation, iOS, Android, Xbox, Mac, Smart TVs, or Windows PC, via Foxtel or Optus.

Wilder vs. Fury – What’s Going On
Tyson Fury will go head to head with Deontay Wilder for the WBC and vacant The Ring, and lineal heavyweight titles. However, the titles aren’t the main goal in this bout; it’s to settle an old score that none of them got the satisfaction they needed from.
Top Rank is looking for a way to top the charts in revenue. They’re looking to set a record of 2 million buys. But do you think that’s possible? The previous fight wasn’t even near 500k; why would this one be any different?
According to Bob Arum, Top Rank chief:
“I would be disappointed if the pay-per-view was less than 2 million buys. That’s the goal and estimation. I think it’s doable… and we’re pulling off all of the stops to reach that number, or exceed it.”
We’ll just have to wait and see; it’s an epic fight after all. Now, the fighters had a few words to say to each other. It started with Fury, who wasn’t subtle at all. This is what he had to say:
“I’m not coming here for a points decision, I’ve had too many of them – nine of them – I’m coming here for a knockout, I’ve had 21 of them and from the heart that’s what I’m looking to do. You’re going to sleep in two rounds.”
Wilder replied to Fury’s comments with some harsh words. The man is coming to win, and he expects nothing less than a knockout. Here’s what he said:
“It’s called unfinished business and he won’t be able to get back up. I’m going to knock him out. I’m the lion, the king of the jungle, and come 22 February I’m going to rip his head off his body.”
Fury vs Wilder – Stats
Let’s take a look at how both of these fighters stand before their clash on February 22nd, 2020:
Until now, no fighters have been confirmed for the legendary rematch. But we expect Frank Warren to bring a couple of his best fighters to supper Tyson Fury.
During the last bout, we saw Joe Joyce as he fought before the main event, as did Isaac Lowe. Ortiz also joined the undercard last year. There’s also talks that the co-main event could see Kubrat Pulev, who’s eying for Anthony Joshua’s belts as a mandatory challenger. He might be facing fellow IBF contender Adam Kownacki.
We know nothing for sure, but Top Rank and PBC won’t disappoint for sure.
