We love a good match-up here at Dubailad. Whether it’s UFC, MMA, boxing or just inter-office banter that ends up with an arm wrestle, we’re here for the beef.
And the beef doesn’t get much beefier than the heavyweight rematch between Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder.
The two big-hitters are back in the ring together after their first fight which finished as a controversial draw.
Billed as Unfinished Business, the bout pitches reigning WBC champion Deontay Wilder against UK fighter Tyson Fury. And it takes place on February 23 UAE time at the MGM Grand in Nevada.
Happily for us, the time difference means that you can wake up and watch the royal rumble over breakfast rather than trying to stay up to 3 am mainlining coffee and Redbull. The Wilder vs Fury fight is expected to start around 7 am on Sunday, February 23 in Dubai. Making it an ideal way to start your week!
And, because we love you and we love boxing, we’ve put together this list of the best places in Dubai that will be showing the Wilder vs Fury fight come Sunday morning.
