One of the most hotly-anticipated boxing rematches of all time gets underway, with Deontay Wilder taking on Tyson Fury at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Paradise, Nevada.
Wilder vs Fury II gets underway on Sunday, February 23 (Australian time) at 1pm (AEDT).
Both fighters are undefeated over the course of their respective careers, with Wilder (42-0-1) and Fury (29-0-1) playing out a highly contentious split decision draw in their initial meeting just over a year ago. This fight will be for the World Heavyweight Championship.
Australia’s Daniel Lewis will also be in the ring, taking on Sebastian Fundora in the opening fight on the main card.

There will be about two hours of pre-fight coverage on Fox Sports 506, with four episodes of Inside Wilder vs Fury airing from 11am (AEDT) on the day of the fight.
The only way to watch the fight itself, however, is through Main Event TV – Foxtel’s pay-per-view service. You’ll need a valid Foxtel TV subscription to have access to Main Event, with the fight itself costing an additional $49.95 to view.
Purchasing the fight through Main Event lets you watch the fight live from 1pm, as well as the first replay at 7pm. There are then replays available every six hours from 6am the next day.
As Main Event is just about the only Fox Sports channel not available on Kayo, there is no way to live stream Wilder vs Fury in Australia – that we’re aware of.
If you can’t get to a TV, your best bet is to head on down to a pub that’s showing the fight on their TV.
