Big heavyweight fight coming to Las Vegas


For the first time in a while, Top Rank is promoting a big heavyweight fight.

Tyson Fury, one of the big three in the division, is going to fight next month in Las Vegas. He is a charismatic character taken from the same mold as Conor McGregor, but this heavyweight has demons that so far McGregor has fought off.

After beating Vladamir Klitschko four years ago, Fury fell into deep depression, drugs, alcohol and other demons took him to edge.

8 News Now Sports Director Chris Maathuis has the story.
