Tyson Fury Cancels Agit Kabayel Dec 5th Fight, Returns In 2021
November 17, 2020
WBC heavyweight champion Tyson Fury will not be fighting Agit Kabayel in December and has pushed back his return date to 2021.
Fury (30-0-1, 21 KOs) planned to face former champion Deontay Wilder (42-1-1, 41 KOs) a third time before the end of the year but things didn’t go down as planned, so he instead planned skipping Wilder for a warm up fight against Agit Kabayel before wandering into the uncertainties of 2021.
Wilder and his team have decided to drag Tyson Fury to a mediation so as to make him fulfill the demands of their contract, which Fury and his team believe is expired. There is no information as to why Fury is shifting his return to the ring to 2021 but it literally suggest He might be facing Wilder a third time.
Fury, who capitalised on Wilder’s statements as a reason to deny him of a third fight, has made many boxing fan’s believe the Brit is becoming risk evasive while preparing himself for a mega all British unification fight with IBF, IBO, WBA and WBO heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua in 2021.
Tyson Fury easily defeated Deontay Wilder with a seventh round stoppage victory back in February 22nd but the Alabama knockout artist, has been out with many accusations as reasons for losing the fight. Wilder got a torn bicep during the fight and had to undergo a surgery after the fight but believes Fury also had an egg plant in his gloves, which also led to the injuries on his ear.
Wilder wants to get in the ring with Fury a third time so he can avenge his Knockout loss. He knocked Fury out cold in the 12th round of their first fight but the referee Jack Reiss dished out a very slow count till Fury made it back to his feet and was able to control the fight to the final minute to earn a controversial split draw.
Fury’s Promoter Bob Arum believes Wilder will happen and that Fury will have no choice but to grant the former Champ a third fight as Kubrat Pulev will knock Joshua out to claim the titles, leaving Fury with no option but a third fight with Wilder.
“No, I think a third Wilder fight is going to happen because I think Pulev is going to knock the stuffing out of Joshua, and then Fury is going to look for Wilder for that third fight because it’s the biggest fight out there,” said Top Rank promoter Bob Arum.
“So let’s be patient. I’m telling you that Pulev wins that fight, and if Pulev wins, there’s no Joshua. So obviously, Fury and Wilder is the biggest heavyweight fight. I don’t know if I’m underestimating him or overestimating him. I’m telling you that Pulev is going to beat him,” said Arum.
Tyson Fury Vs Deontay Wilder 3 will need to take place in order to clear the air on the controversies surrounding their first two meeting and also to give a clear cut answer on who is the better fighter.
