Top Rank reserves July 24 date at Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas
Holding Date for Possible Fury vs Wilder Fight #3
Top Rank has reserved Allegiant Stadium for a possible Tyson Fury, Deontay Wilder rematch after an arbitrator ruled earlier this week said Fury must meet Wilder for the third time after Wilder exercised his rematch clause. Fury’s camp had said previously that the rematch clause had expired due to Wilder’s surgery and Covid-19 postponements. Fury’s team went ahead and booked their fighter to meet Anthony Joshua, saying the arbitration case will have no impact on the fight. Well, it did have a huge impact.
The arbitration ruling affected the Joshua and Fury bout scheduled for August 14th in Saudia Arabia. Top Ranks Bob Arum wasted no time in securing the Vegas venue, but Arum added “This doesn’t mean its official for that date or venue, mind you, but it’s an early idea, and an aggressive one, given that this would mean the fight would happen in about two months’ time.”
