WBC Heavyweight Champion Tyson Fury will be giving Former Ruler Deontay Wilder another chance at his WBC strap on the 24th of July and Efe Ajagba Vs Frank Sanchez will be the supporting bout of the card.
The main card will feature Four Heavyweight battles which include the main event, Efe Ajagba Vs Frank Sanchez, a rematch between Robert Helenius vs. Adam Kownacki 2 and the youngest fighter on the card Jared Anderson (9-0, 9 KO) will battle Russia’s Vladimir Tereshkin in the opening bout.
Former Olympian and undefeated prospect Efe Ajagba will be taking on fellow undefeated heavyweight Frank Sanchez in the Co- Main Event. The Nigerian knockout artist will be hoping to build on his “Knockout Of The Year” candidate victory over Brain Howard in his last outing. While Sanchez earned a technical decision over Nagy Aguilera in his last outing.
Ajagba felt happy to be on the Fury-Wilder 3 card and promised a special night for the Fans.
“I am honored to be fighting on the Fury-Wilder III pay-per-view as the co-main event,” said Ajagba. “I have been patiently waiting for this opportunity to showcase my skills. My fans — and critics — can expect to see more jabs, head movement, footwork and power in both hands against Frank Sánchez. July 24 is going to be a special night for ‘The One and Only’ Efe Ajagba.”
Sanchez was happy too but views the clash with the hard hitting Ajagba as an opportunity to register himself among the list of heavyweight contenders.
“I am excited to make my case as the top heavyweight title contender on the best pay-per-view card of the year,” said Sánchez. “I look forward to fighting Efe Ajagba and coming out victorious. Boxing fans want to see the best fight the best. People say Efe Ajagba is avoided, and that’s exactly why I chose to fight him. Fans can expect a great fight between two undefeated heavyweights July 24.”
Robert Helenius (30-3, 13 KO) and Adam Kownacki (20-1, 15 KO) will have an opportunity to run back their 2020 battle that saw Helenius hand the then unbeaten Kownacki a one sided beating that ended with a 4th round knockout win.
Helenius no doubt, looks forward to repeating that performance and with no grudge against he former foe, 24th of July will be just another day in the office for the Finnish fighter.
“I’m looking forward to repeating my first performance against Kownacki on July 24,” said Helenius. “Boxing fans can expect another incredible fight with my hand raised in victory once again. All of Finland will be behind me when I show the world why I am most deserving of a world title fight. My only goal is to be world champion and unfortunately for Adam he stands in my way.”
Kownacki is just happy to be in a Heavyweight battle after all he went through during the pandemic in 2020 and looked forward to fishing out a good revenge to Helenius.
“I’m very excited to be back in the ring,” said Kownacki. “The pandemic made things hard for everyone, but things are getting back to normal. Being a part of an all-heavyweight pay-per-view like this feels great, and it’s a great thing for fans of our sport.
This pay-per-view will be action-packed from top to bottom. I can’t wait to get my revenge against Robert Helenius. It’s been a long year waiting for the rematch, but I’ll be getting a victory on July 24. I feel like things will get back to normal and I will prove that I am one of the top heavyweights in the world.”
Jared Anderson (9-0, 9 KO) and Vladimir Tereshkin (22-0-1, 12 KO) will be opening the main card. Anderson will look to replicate his terrific Amateur Career in his Professional career. However, Tereshkin will be stepping up in class as his record is built on the destruction of Tomato Cans.
