Report: Tyson Fury vs. Deontay Wilder 3 Will Take Place On July 24
It appears we have a set date for the trilogy bout between Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder.
All roads seemed to be leading to Fury vs. Anthony Joshua. The two were going to fight on August 14 in Saudi Arabia. While Wilder had an arbitration case going to prevent the fight, Fury’s team insisted that it wouldn’t be an issue.
As it turns out, Wilder won the arbitration. As a result, he is owed a third fight with “The Gypsy King” by September 15. It looks like Wilder won’t have to wait long to get one last chance at defeating Fury.
Kevin Iole of Yahoo! Sports reports that Wilder has signed on to fight Fury on July 24.
