Reading Time: < 1 minute

Tyson Fury is set to face Deontay Wilder for the WBC heavyweight title this Saturday, December 1, 2018. Both fighters had earlier challenged World Heavyweight Champion, Anthony Joshua.

Recently, Fury claimed he plans to give his seven-figure pay day from the fight with Deontay Wilder to “the poor”.

“I’m going to give it to the poor and I’m going to build homes for the homeless,” Fury said.

“I don’t really have much use for it, I’m not interested in becoming a millionaire or a billionaire.

“I’m a boxer not a businessman and I’ll probably go down the same route as every other boxer – skint at the end of it all.

“You can’t take it with you so I might as well do something with it and help out people who can’t help themselves.”

The event will be staged at the Staples Center in Los Angeles. The bout is expected to start around 9pm local time, which will be 5am in the UK (Sunday morning).

Live television coverage in the UK comes from BT Sport Box Office, with Showtime broadcasting the event in the United States.
