Deontay Wilder vs. Artur Szpilka

Event Information

Four heavyweights will meet in two world title fights for one history-making night in Brooklyn.

Undefeated heavyweight challengers Charles Martin and Vyacheslav Glazkov will also battle for the vacant IBF World Championship during a 12-round bout directly preceding Wilder vs Szpilka.
