On this week of the Kilt Cast, we discussed the Deontay Wilder vs Tyson Fury fight, then transitioned to the Rochester United (RU) playoff run. Additional statistics and information are provided below.
On February 22nd, Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder met in Las Vegas for the WBA heavyweight championship. The two had a rematch after a controversial split draw in 2018 at the Staples Center in Los Angeles. The second matchup between the two is being called “Unfinished Business” because of the previous fight. Fury came out strong, attacking Wilder right when the bell was rung, and he didn’t let up. After rupturing Wilder’s eardrum in the second round, Fury went on to win the fight in the seventh round. The two plan to fight a third time on July 18th, 2020.
Rochester United is in the playoffs again, and the team is heating up. After an abysmal 2-10 start, RU finished out the back end of the season 11-2. Now in the third round of the playoffs, they face off against Lance Cruze United, a team they beat 5-3 earlier in the season. Can RU keep it rolling?
