The trilogy fight between "The Gypsy King" Tyson Fury (30-0-1) and "The Bronze Bomber" Deontay Wilder (42-1-1) that was originally scheduled for July 24 now has a new date. The fight, postponed due to Fury contracting COVID-19, has now been rescheduled for Oct. 9 at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.
The anticipated trilogy fight between Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder that was originally scheduled for July 24 is apparently in jeopardy. According to Mike Coppinger of ESPN, the blockbuster fight is on thin ice after a COVID-19 outbreak has occurred in Fury's camp.
Deontay Wilder and Tyson Fury have verbally agreed on a fight date of July 24 to hash out their trilogy. The two heavyweight giants agree to a date just days after the Bronze Bomber won a court decision affirming his right to a third fight with the Gypsy King.
COVID-19 has delayed the scheduling of a trilogy fight between the two boxing giants but some promoters are aiming to have the fight booked in Sydney at the end of 2020.
Boxing Promoters Dean Lonergan and Bob Arum are aiming to lock in December 25th or 26th (Boxing Day) for the fight, at Bankwest Stadium in Sydney. Lonergan and Arum successfully arraigned Pacquiao vs Horn in Austrialia in 2017.
The running theme in sports at the moment is postponements, the most recent event to fall victim to a rescheduling is the summer rematch between Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder. TopRank Boxing Promoter Bob Arum told ESPN yesterday that the fight would be moved back until at least October.
