Bob Bennett, the NSAC’s executive director, barred Wilder and Fury from participating in a traditional face-off after they weighed in because they pushed each other and caused an incident at the start of their final press conference Wednesday at MGM Grand. They instead taunted one another from a safe distance before exiting the stage.

The 6-feet-7 Wilder weighed a career-high 231 pounds when he stepped on the Nevada State Athletic Commission’s scale at MGM Grand Garden Arena. Wilder weighed only 212½ pounds, the WBC heavyweight champion’s lowest weight since his pro debut in November 2008, the day before he fought Fury in December 2018 at Staples Center in Los Angeles.

Wilder’s previous high was 229 pounds, for victories over Eric Molina and Damon McCreary in June 2015 and September 2012, respectively.

The 6-feet-9 Fury weighed 273 pounds Friday, 16½ pounds more than the 256½ pounds he officially weighed for their first fight. The most he has weighed for pro fight is 276 pounds, for his comeback bout against Sefer Seferi in June 2018.

Fury, 31, intentionally came in heavier for their 12-round rematch because the lineal champion intends to use the additional weight to his advantage against the significantly lighter Wilder, who has won all but two of his 43 professional bouts by knockout. The leaner Wilder, 34, also made of point of weighing more for their rematch because Fury out-weighed him by 44 pounds when they fought to a controversial split draw.

Freakishly tall junior middleweight prospect Sebastian Fundora picked up what the judges felt was a decisive victory tonight, outpointing for Olympian Daniel Lewis of Australia over 10 rounds in the Wilder-Fury 2 PPV opener.

Live coverage for Wilder vs Fury 2 continues here!
Fundora (14-0-1, 9 KO) took the win on scores of 97-93, 98-92, and 99-91. That he won is not a robbery in itself, though you might argue the scores were a bit wide. Bad Left Hook had the fight 95-95 and 96-94 Fundora on two separate cards, but if you edged enough close rounds — and there were plenty — to Fundora, it’s easy to see him winning 7-3 or maybe even 8-2.

Fundora, who is between 6’5” and 6’7” at 154 pounds, didn’t exactly use his height and crazy long reach to win this fight. In fact, he fought more on the inside than you’d probably want to see from someone of his dimensions. Both he and Lewis (6-1, 4 KO) were busted up early, bleeding from their noses, and Lewis showed a lot of marking on the face as the fight went on.

It was a rugged fight, if not exactly exciting. And while Fundora’s plan of attack didn’t take advantage of his strengths, Lewis’ didn’t, either; he didn’t go to the body quite as much as he maybe should have, headhunting a bit too often.

Navarrete (31-1, 27 KO) really had no trouble with Santisima (19-3, 16 KO), who was a huge underdog and proved that everyone had read the matchup correctly. This has become par for the course with Navarrete title defenses; while he fights regularly and people like that, his opponents are lousy for world title fights.

Santisima did prove durable and game, surviving as long as he did, but he didn’t trouble Navarrete at all. Navarrete dominated in several rounds and looked to close repeatedly, and while he suffered a clear injury to his right hand, he said Santisima lasted because of his toughness.

“I hit him weirdly with my right hand did hurt my thumb, but I had to plow through it and get the victory,” Navarrete told Bernardo Osuna. “The fight took a long time because I had a very tough opponent.”
