THE Deontay Wilder-Tyson Fury PPV undercard begins at 2 a.m. in the UK (9 p.m. ET/6 p.m. PT) and features unified 154-pound world champion Jarrett Hurd defending against the West Midland’s Jason Welborn, Cuban heavyweight contender Luis Ortiz in a 10-round showdown against rugged veteran Travis Kauffman and rising heavyweight Joe Joyce taking on Joe Hanks in a 10-round heavyweight attraction.

This is a dream come true to be here,” says Welborn of his shot at the title. “Hurd has worked his way up to get here just like I have. Right now, he’s in my way. I hope everyone enjoys what I bring to the table on Saturday night.”

“I have the belief that I’m born and bred for this game and I’m going to show it to the whole world on Saturday night. I always prove people wrong.
