When is Tyson Fury vs. Deontay Wilder 3? Date, chain, fight details for heavyweight title trilogy fight
The story leading up to Tyson Fury’s upcoming third fight with Deontay Wilder is as surreal as it is well documented.
The two put their respective undefeated professional records on the line when they first met in December 2018, and with many spectators divided over who was in the lead just minutes into the 12 rounds, Wilder flattened Fury with a powerful, trademark shot.
Fury looked cold, before surprisingly getting up towards the end of the referee’s 10 count, and despite the 10-8 round, he got a draw.
In their February 2020 rematch, things were very different as Fury comfortably beat the American, scoring a save in the seventh round. Then the COVID-19 pandemic ended a contractual rematch for the now ex-champion, leaving Fury to continue an undisputed title super-fight with Anthony Joshua. That is, until the end of Wilder’s arbitration hearing.
“The Bronze Bomber” successfully appealed against the attempt to simply withdraw from his rematch clause, and just like that, AJ-Fury was gone. Fury-Wilder 3 was on. And after all the trashy talk and all the excuses given as to why he lost their second fight, it’s all or nothing for Wilder’s hopes of remaining a leading name in today’s pugilistic scene.
Here’s everything we know so far about Fury-Wilder 3.
