While Fury played it safe by lining up Tom Schwarz and Otto Wallin (the latter turned out to be more difficult than anyone imagined), Wilder (41-0-1, 40 KOs) is taking a significant risk with a rematch against Luis Ortiz (31-1, 26 KOs) on Saturday in Las Vegas.
In their first bout back in March 2018, Ortiz came achingly close to stopping Wilder in a furious seventh round at the Barclay's Center in New York.
It likely represents his last chance to make history by becoming the first Cuban to win a heavyweight world title.
