Showtime this Saturday will air a replay of the Dec. 1 Deontay Wilder-Tyson Fury heavyweight pay-per-view boxing match.
The fight, in which World Boxing Council champion Wilder and former heavyweight champion Fury fought to an entertaining draw, was the first Showtime-distributed PPV event of 2019. PPV buys for the event were not available at press time.
Showtime will jump back into the PPV ring in January with the Jan. 19 Manny Pacquiao-Adrien Broner welterweight championship fight.
