16th JUNE UPDATE: TYSON FURY VS DEONTAY WILDER 3 IS CONFIRMED FOR JULY THIS YEAR AT THE T-MOBILE ARENA IN LAS VEGAS!! BUY YOUR TICKETS NOW!!!!!!!!!!
The trilogy for Tyson Fury vs Deontay Wilder has been confirmed for 24th July 2021 at the T mobile Arena in Las Vegas. The winner of this heavyweight clash will not only hold the WBC belt, but will be next in line to attempt to unify the heavyweight division if Anthony Joshua can overcome Oleksandr Usyk.
In their first bout at the end of 2018, Wilder floored Fury twice but was comprehensively outboxed for the majority of the bout. Most believed the Brit had done enough to earn a decision victory, only for the judges to score it a controversial draw.
Fury opted to go in a different direction in 2019 and so the pair did not meet again until February 2020. This time around an aggressive ‘Gypsy King’ took the fight to the ‘Bronze Bomber’, flooring him twice and winning by stoppage in round seven.
With the trilogy now official for July 24, Fury said: “I’m excited to once again be fighting in Las Vegas, the home of the ‘Gypsy King.' For the last 18 months, I’ve been living rent free in Wilder’s head. He got smashed to pieces in our last fight, and for some reason, he wants it again. Let’s go. The big dosser is getting knocked spark out.”
Wilder said: “Nothing has changed. It’s still one face, one name, one champion – Deontay Wilder."
