Deontay Wilder and Tyson Fury are contradictions personified. They defy conventional boxing wisdom in that respective style do not typically mesh with their body types. In fact, it would actually make more sense if each had the other’s skill set.

Wilder, of Tuscaloosa, Ala., is 6-foot-7 and currently owns the highest knockout percentage in heavyweight boxing history with a record of 41-0-1 with 40 knockouts. Only two men have gone the distance with Wilder, Bermane Stiverne and Fury, when they fought to a split draw. Wilder knocked out Stiverne in a rematch and will look to do the same against Fury (29-0-1, 20 KOs) Saturday night.
Wilder, who will be making the 11th defense of his heavyweight title, said he first knew he had devastating power early in his career. That power has since been compared to Tommy Hearns’ and George Foreman’s.
