couple of days, it looks almost distinct that Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder will confront again for a third time this summer.
Fury had seemed set to square off with long-time rival Anthony Joshua to determine the unified heavyweight champion of the world. That fight, in fact, was rumoured to be on the verge of being officially declared openly for August 14 in Saudi Arabia.
Then, however, Wilder stepped in.
The former WBC heavyweight champion lost his title to Fury in their second fight last February – and Wilder believed he was contractually allowed to a third fight against The Gypsy King.
On Monday, an arbitration court judge conceded with him, proclaiming that the American was owed a trilogy bout with Fury. Importantly, the ruling also affirmed that the fight must transpire before September 15 this year.
Fury’s US advocator Bob Arum talked to to ESPN quickly after the stunning court verdict, substantiating he would not be giving Wilder a monetary inducement to step aside to make way for the Joshua vs Fury clash.
