Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder will settle the score once and for all when they meet Oct. 9 at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas for Fury’s WBC and lineal heavyweight titles.
The third fight in the trilogy was originally set for July 24, but Fury tested positive for COVID and the fight was rescheduled for the new date in October.
Fury (30-0-1, 21 KOs) enters third fight coming off of an impressive seventh-round TKO of Wilder (42-1-1, 41 KOs) last February in a highly anticipated heavyweight clash. Fury dominated the fight from start to finish as he handed Wilder the first loss of his professional career in dominant fashion. The COVID pandemic disrupted plans of a rematch that summer and preliminary talks of an undisputed heavyweight title showdown between Fury and the IBF, WBA (Super) and WBO champion Anthony Joshua began to take shape.
It appeared that the fight was heading for a late 2021 date but an arbitration judge ruled in favor of Wilder, ordering a third fight between Fury and Wilder to take place no later than September 24. Fury’s positive COVID test pushed the fight back to October and the two heavyweights will square off 20 months after Fury stopped Wilder.
“I wanted nothing more than to smash the ‘Big Dosser’ on July 24, but I guess the beating will have to wait,” Fury said. “Make no mistake, I will be back and better than ever. We will fight Oct. 9, and I will knock him spark out!”
With Wilder behind in the series at 0-1-1, he’ll get an opportunity to tie things up should he emerge victorious.
“This is what we went to arbitration for,” said Shelly Finkel, Wilder’s manager. “He just wanted what was owed to him. He remains ready to reclaim his world title on Oct. 9.’’
