Tyson Fury vs. Deontay Wilder 3: fight map, date, odds, location, info for the trilogy fight
The third fight between Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder has been officially announced. The two heavyweights will face off for Fury’s WBC Heavyweight World Championship on July 24 from T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.
After fighting to a draw in their first meeting, Fury eased Wilder’s job in the rematch, dominating the fight before scoring the save in the seventh round. The fight contract included a clause that allowed the loser to engage in a third battle between the two, taking the short end of a 60-40 purse split. Wilder immediately exercised his option, but as injuries and the COVID pandemic delayed the fight, Fury said time was up and moved on to a scheduled fight with Anthony Joshua to unify the four recognized world championships.
Wilder took the battle to court, and a referee said Fury had to honor the clause and fight Wilder, hosting a rubber match and taking the biggest boxing fight.
Since the loss, Wilder has embarked on an elaborate series of conspiracy theories ranging from his elaborate costume wearing out his legs before the fight to Fury having tampered with his gloves for a power advantage to his own trainer having conspired against him by throwing the sponge as Wilder faded from Fury’s heavy blows.
Wilder has the most honest chance possible to prove himself the best man, by stepping into the ring and trading punches in the summer.
