LAS VEGAS — The late, great Kobe Bryant once said, “Job’s not finished.”
Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder will look to settle things once and for all when they end their intense trilogy Saturday night at T-Moblie Arena. Fury’s WBC heavyweight championship will be on the line.

After battling to a split draw in their first meeting in 2018 — which featured one of the most iconic survivals of a knockdown in boxing history — Fury dominated Wilder and stopped him in the seventh round in their 2020 rematch.
The trilogy was originally set for later that year but the COVID-19 pandemic derailed those plans.
After more than a year of mudslinging, accusations and arbitration, Fury and Wilder will meet one last time. The winner will have a chance to make history and chase the dream of becoming the division’s first undisputed champion in over two decades, while the loser will be history.

8:39 p.m.: Coceres cracks Berlanga with a blistering two punch combination in the sixth round that briefly wobbles the undefeated fighter. This is happening because Berlanga is actively trying to get the knockout and leaving himself open to counters. He’s still winning this fight pretty handily but a better fighter will take full advantage of this if he’s not careful.
8:31 p.m.: The first-round knockout threat of Berlanga seems to have disappeared with the step up in competition but he’s still winning this fight with Coceres pretty handily through 4 rounds.
8:17 p.m.: We’re ringside for Fury-Wilder 3 and knockout artist Edgar Berlanga is looking to add another body to is growing graveyard of boxing corpses. Can Marcelo Esteban Coceres survive?
