Possible Return Date For Tyson Fury After Deontay Wilder Trilogy Falls Apart
We may know the return date of Tyson Fury.
Fury was initially set to collide with Deontay Wilder a third time next. A July time frame was halted due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Then there were plans to have the trilogy fight take place on December 19. Once again, a change in date was proposed. Once Fury got word that the matchup could be put off until 2021, he lost patience.
Fury has been adamant about fighting in December with or without Wilder. “The Gypsy King” insists he has “moved on” from the trilogy fight.
Frank Warren told talkSPORT that Fury plans to fight in London two months from now.
“Tyson has said enough is enough, he is not going to wait longer and he will fight in London in December. That is what will happen. We haven’t finalized who it will be or anything yet, but that is what will happen. As far as he is concerned, that contract [with Wilder] is at an end. It can’t go on forever. Everybody has worked hard to get the Wilder fight on, but it’s just not happening.”
Warren went on to say that the plan is for Fury to fight a top-15 heavyweight in the WBC rankings on December 5. That would fall on the same card as Anthony Yarde vs. Lyndon Arthur. If Fury’s return takes place on that date, he’ll be defending the WBC Heavyweight Championship inside the Royal Albert Hall in London, England.
