New date set for Tyson Fury vs Deontay Wilder’s heavyweight trilogy fight due to Covid 19

Tyson Fury’s promoter, Bob Arum, has affirmed that his client’s heavyweight set of three fight against American fighter, Deontay Wilder, has been postponed until early October due to the ongoing coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic across the globe.

Day by day POST reviews that Fury arranged battling Wilder again on July 18 after the fighters camp authoritatively set off a rematch provision.

The 31-year-old British warrior vanquished Wilder in the seventh round at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, USA, in February to recapture the WBC world heavyweight title.

Inquired as to whether Fury’s set of three battle against Wilder would at present occur on July 18 notwithstanding the flare-up of COVID-19 on the planet, Arum told ESPN: “Plainly not.

“We don’t have the foggiest idea whether the MGM will likewise be open by at that point.

“We were unable to persuade them or ourselves. Where were they going to prepare for it? It simply had neither rhyme nor reason.

“You need to make a stride back. How are you going to sell tickets? It is ludicrous to state the battle is on when the Brits can’t arrive.”

“Everyone needs to make a stride back. Boxing isn’t secluded. It is a piece of what’s going on the planet,” Arum included.

“So conceivably the battle will be toward the beginning of October.”
