FURY/WILDER IS POSTPONED DUE TO COVID-19
The Tyson Fury/Deontay Wilder fight has been postposed due to Covid-19 in Fury’s camp. The cause of the outbreak has been identified as a sparring partner of Fury. Multiple sources have confirmed that Fury himself was among those who have tested positive for Covid-19, along with at least seven other members of his camp.
The development has ruined plans for a scheduled trilogy bout with Deontay Wilder, which was due to take place July 24 at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.
Here is a tweet from Mike Coppinger of ESPN on the probable rescheduled date.
Sources: Targeted date for Tyson Fury-Deontay Wilder 3 is Oct. 9. Fight moving to fall ostensibly means plenty of promotion on ESPN and FOX on college football Saturdays and NFL Sundays. Heavyweight championship trilogy fight will still be staged in Las Vegas at T-Mobile Arena
