Tyson Fury Vs Deontay Wilder Trilogy had a major set back and initial plans for July 24th had to be cancelled due to Fury’s positive COVID 19 result. However, preparations for the anticipated fight has been put back on track and the two giants are now set to meet on the 9th of October at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.
The two are familiar with situations like this as the third meeting between them has taken more than a full year to materialise. This is partly due to the COVID 19 pandemic and partly due to Fury’s refusal to honour their rematch clause, for reasons best know to him.
Their first meeting was a one hell of a fight as Fury, who was returning from a long lay off schooled the “Bronze Bomber through twelve rounds but there was an equaliser as the “Gypsy King” brutally visited the canvas twice, with one almost considered a knockout. They both settled for a draw.
Their second meeting was nothing like the first as Fury totally brutalized Wilder l, dropping him twice en route to a seventh round technical knockout. Wilder disputed the stoppage and made a lot of accusations, pointing fingers at members of his team and accused Fury cheating. He replaced his trainer but by the time, he was ready Fury wasn’t interested in the third fight and he had to take the case to the court.
The fight which will be promoted by Top Rank, BombZquad Promotions, TGB Promotions and Frank Warren’s Queensberry Promotions will be broadcasted live on ESPN+ Pay-Per-View and FOX Pay-Per-View and tickets are currently on sale at tmobilearena.com and axs.com.
Fury has promised another huge knockout when he meets Deontay Wilder on the 9th of October and made clear how disappointed, he presently feels due to the initial date fall out.
“I wanted nothing more than to smash the ‘Big Dosser’ on July 24, but I guess the beating will have to wait,” Fury said. “Make no mistake, I will be back and better than ever. We will fight Oct. 9, and I will knock him spark out!”
His promoter Frank Warren also had a few to say about his fighter and his positive COVID 19 test.
“I’m glad that we could all agree a new date quickly for Tyson to defend his title.
“Tyson is a fighting man and I know how frustrated he is that he can’t compete this month. It’s such a shame to lose a fight of this magnitude to COVID.
“That said, the extra time he gets to prepare is just going to ensure he’s bigger and better than ever before – I’ve never been more certain that Tyson is going to deliver a spectacular performance and remain the number one Heavyweight on the planet!
