Subsequent episodes will publish on the SHOWTIME Sports YouTube channel and SHOWTIME Boxing Facebook page as Wilder and Fury approach the most significant heavyweight title fight in the U.S. since 2002.

Rrustemi returns to the ring following a second-round knockout win over Juan Pedro Guglielmetti on March 3, and will look to extend his thirteen fight unbeaten streak against the former IBF and WBO Cruiserweight Champion.
 
The full fight card is now finalised for December 8 with Croatian boxers Luka Pupek and Ivica Perkovic also confirmed for action at the KC Drazen Petrovic alongside rising German star Leon Bauer, who takes on Portugal’s Jorge Silva.
 
Croatian boxing sensation Filip Hrgovi? tops the bill, defending his WBC International Heavyweight title against Ytalo Perea, while female star Ivana Habazin provides chief support with a rematch against Serbia’s Eva Bajic.
 
“We’re delighted to have the full card confirmed for another fantastic show in Zagreb,” said promoter Nisse Sauerland, of Team Sauerland. “We will have six fights in total including our outstanding main event. Fans inside the KC Drazen Petrovic can look forward to an action-packed night of boxing!”

I would urge everyone, who hasn’t already, to get their tickets now to witness this top boxing spectacle in Zagreb.”
