Fury Vs Wilder Trilogy Fight To Be Delayed Again

Tyson Fury has been told he will not fight Deontay Wilder until November or December.

The Brit stopped the then world champion in February in a rematch of their controversial draw in 2018.

Wilder immediately triggered a clause in his contract giving him the chance to win back his heavyweight title.

The trilogy fight was pencilled in for July 18 in Las Vegas but the coronavirus crisis pushed it back until October 3.

Now Fury’s promoter Bob Arum has told the champion he must wait until later in the year, reports Sports Illustrated.

Boxing has yet to resume on either side of the Atlantic since sport was ground to a halt by the pandemic.

When it does return, fights will be held behind closed doors, a measure which could remain in place until next year.

Doing so with the heavyweight trilogy fight would see the promoters miss out on a potential £15million from ticket sales.

Delaying the fight also allows Wilder more time to recover from his bicep surgery after he suffered an injury during his first professional defeat.

The American said recently: “Recovery is going well. I’m in therapy, I ended up injuring it during my last fight.

“I’ve been there before, but everything is going great with it. I’m just focusing on recovery and getting back to full health.

“I’m looking forward to once all this coronavirus stuff is over to getting back to camp and getting ready.”
