The conveyor belt: Why small hall boxing must survive

Faces of Fury

Tyson Fury (29-0-1, 20 KO’s) fight weeks are always a whirlwind of words, proclamations, often outlandish, and face offs that are either intense or completely surreal. Throw WBC heavyweight holder Deontay Wilder (42-0-1, 41 KOs), himself ...
