The National Anthems are complete and the ring walks are underway.

Tyson Fury might set a world record for longest ring walk.

I stand corrected. Wilder might beat him with Jay Rock rapping as Wilder makes his way to the ring.

I think we’ll call the ring walks a draw.

Fury is younger, taller, weighs more and has the longer reach. Wilder is the power punching defending champion. Both are undefeated. Who wins tonight? We’re going to find out shortly.
