The path seemed to be heading towards a summer collision between Anthony Joshua and Tyson Fury. This aforementioned August 14 date was drawn for an undisputed title fight between Joshua and Fury in Saudi Arabia.
But an arbitration case over Deontay Wilder’s end threw a wrench into those plans and forced another massive heavyweight clash instead. Wilder has long disputed that he was legally indebted for a third fight against Fury, and it will happen soon.

The reason I think it’s because audiences have a huge fascination with the idea of a knockout artist. Bettors and the pugilistic public in general love to pour last-minute cash on a brick-fisted brawler, and no one cracks as hard as Wilder.
I think Fury will always be a notable favorite, but the puncher’s fortuitous tale will create a bit of reinforcement on Wilder’s chances as the fight draws closer.
