Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder will settle the score once and for all when they meet on October 9 at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas for Fury’s WBC and linear heavyweight titles.
The third fight in the trilogy was originally scheduled for July 24, but Fury tested positive for COVID and the fight was moved to the new date in October.
Fury (30-0-1, 21 KOs) enters fight three after an impressive seventh-round TKO from Wilder (42-1-1, 41 KOs) last February in a highly anticipated heavyweight clash. Fury dominated the fight from start to finish as he dominantly handed Wilder the first loss of his professional career. The COVID pandemic disrupted plans for a rematch that summer and preliminary talks about an undisputed heavyweight title showdown between Fury and the IBF, WBA (Super) and WBO champion Anthony Joshua began to take shape.
It appeared that the fight would take place in late 2021, but an arbitration judge ruled in Wilder’s favor and ordered a third fight between Fury and Wilder by September 24. Fury’s positive COVID test pushed the fight back to October and the two heavyweights will go head-to-head 20 months after Fury Wilder retired.
“I wanted nothing more than to smash the ‘Big Dosser’ on July 24, but I think the beating will have to wait,” Fury said. “Make no mistake, I’ll be back and better than ever. We’ll fight on October 9th and I’ll knock him out!’
With Wilder trailing the series at 0-1-1, he’ll get a chance to tie things up as he emerges victorious.
“This is what we went to arbitration for,” said Shelly Finkel, Wilder’s manager. “He just wanted what was due him. He remains ready to win back his world title on October 9th.”
