Tyson Fury-Deontay Wilder rematch 'clearly' being postponed

Tyson Fury-Deontay Wilder rematch 'clearly' being postponed”

Tyson Fury's trilogy clash with Deontay Wilder has been postponed until October because of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. That means that the unification fight may not be taking place until the summer of 2021 at the very earliest. I have been his No. 1 challenger since 2017, but he never wanted to fight me and he ducked and deflected my legitimate shot for 900 days, pathetically hiding behind the WBC and begging them to allow him to fight with Someone other than me.

Wilder and Fury first fought to a draw during an fantastic December 2018 heavyweight fight. Eddie Hearn is still hopeful that the fight can take place this year without having to be delayed, but he also admitted that he is flexible with the date, with the government advice likely to have an impact on whether the delay could be needed. Fury outboxed Wilder for much of the contest but needed to survive a 12th round knockdown from the powerful Wilder in order to make it to the scorecards. "Where were they going to train for it?"

Fury is contractually obliged to face Wilder for a third time, with many claiming that the decision for the American to exercise his rematch is ruining the boxing fans' dreams of seeing the biggest bout in the world of the sport.

'How are you going to sell tickets?

"So everybody has to take a step back".

"Yes, it's ridiculous, considering he lost the first fight", Whyte said.

"These American heavyweights, they are famous for talking sh*t, but listen, he really needs to be careful about what he wishes for", said Whyte.

And Arum confirmed to ESPN that all parties involved in getting the third fight on the table are working through their process.

"So everybody has to take a step back". "We see things the same way".

However, as Arum mentioned, there's no certainty as to when the MGM Grand hotel, or any of the Vegas resorts will be allowed to reopen anytime soon. "Nobody has ever experienced anything like this before".

Eddie Hearn, the promoter of heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua has been frustrated by this latest news.
