Fury v Wilder III set for October

Tyson Fury’s trilogy clash with Deontay Wilder has been rescheduled for October 9th.

The WBC champion gypsy king had to cancel next saturday’s original bout after catching Covid-19. But the 6ft 9in ace has promised to give the 35-year old American an even bigger battering than his February 2020 masterclass.

Fury, 32, said “I wanted nothing more than to smash the big dosser on July 24 but I guess the beating will have to wait. Make no mistake, I will be back and better than ever. We will fight on October 9 and I will knock him spark out!”.

Promoter Frank Warren said “I’m glad we could agree a new date so quickly for Tyson to defend his title. I’ve never been more certain that Tyson is going to deliver a spectacular performance and remain the No. 1 heavyweight on the planet”.
