Wilder vs Fury and More December 2018 Photos by Al Applerose
WBC heavyweight titlist Deontay Wilder and lineal heavyweight champion Tyson Fury met at the Staples Center in Los Angeles and engaged in one of the better heavyweight fights in the last decade.
Both Deontay Wilder and Tyson Fury showed off the reason both are among the best heavyweights around with 12 rounds of action.
Despite all of the rhetoric when 12 rounds of blows had finished the judges ruled it a split draw and both remain undefeated. Here Fury and Wilder show there are no hard feelings but it also leaves room for a rematch. Hopefully fans get to see these two heavyweights back at it again in 2019.
Claressa Shields dominated Femke Hermans in their 10 round middleweight world title fight at the StubHub Center in Los Angeles. Shields was dominant. It was the first time boxing fans got a glimpse at the great Shields.
Undisputed welterweight champion Cecilia Braekhus proved why she is considered the top female fighter pound for pound with this one-sided win over Aleksandra Lopes at the StubHub Center in L.A.
Cecilia Braekhus spoke with HBO's Jim Lampley and Max Kellerman. It was the final boxing show for HBO after more than 40 years in the business. Here is their last interview which followed Cecilia Braekhus win over Lopes.
