The third fight between Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder has been officially announced. However, he did not come without his great speed. The heavyweight pair clashed with Fury’s WBC heavyweight title on July 24, but a COVID-19 appearance inside Fury’s camp quickly dismantled the plans, until two weeks later.
After being rushed and reconfigured, Fury and Wilder will reunite on Oct. 9 inside the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, forming the same plans.
After a draw in the first encounter, Fury Wilder did an easy job in the rematch, dominating the fight before making a stop on the seventh day. The fight contract included a clause that allowed the loser to start a third battle between the two, taking a brief end to the 60-40 bag portion. Wilder immediately seized his opportunity, but as injuries and the COVID pandemic delayed the fight, Fury said time had passed and he had gone to a planned fight with Anthony Joshua to reconcile the four recognized world championships.
Wilder took the fight to court and a referee ruled that Fury must respect the clause and confront Wilder by setting up a rubber match and taking the biggest fight in boxing.
Since losing, Wilder has worked out a number of conspiracy theories since he wore his legs before the fight, while Fury manipulated his gloves while his coach conspired against throwing in a towel to gain a strong advantage over his coach. Wilder withered under Fury’s large fists.
Wilder has the most honest chance to prove he’s the best man by stepping on the ring in the summer and exchanging fists.
