WBC named “Fighter of the Year 2020” – two boxers.

The World Boxing Council (WBC) repeated the experience of The Ring in summing up the results of the past year.

WBC named "Fighter of the Year 2020" - two boxers.

The title “Fighter of the Year” was shared by two candidates at once – the WBC heavyweight title holder, 32-year-old Briton Tyson Fury (30-0-1, 21 KO), and the WBC / WBA middleweight champion (up to 76.2 kg ) and the leader of the pound-for-pound rating, 30-year-old Mexican Saul Alvarez (54-1-2, 36 KO).

Fury inscribed himself in the history of the division at the end of February, becoming a two-time champion and stopping ahead of schedule in the 7th round of the American mega-knockout boxer Deontay Wilder (42-1-1, 41 KO), for whom this defeat was the first in his career.

Alvarez finally became a true champion in four weight classes in December, inflicting the first and unconditional defeat to the British ex-champion Callum Smith (27-1-0, 19 KO).
