A rematch between Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder in World Heavyweight Championship is impossible without a stadium full of spectators. Frank Warren, Tyson Fury’s promoter said on Wednesday, October 7, 2020. After the 2018 fight between the duo, Fury completely overpowered Wilder in the February Las Vegas rematch and claimed the World Boxing Council trophy, though, he stopped at the seventh round. The duo was expected to fight the third match in July 2020, but due to the coronavirus pandemic, the match was canceled. Promoters and broadcasters previously decided Fury and Wilder will fight their third match on December 19 at Allegiant Stadium, Las Vegas, Nevada, U.S.A.
Fury And Wilder Are Ready For A December Fight
Fury, the 32-year-old boxer from Manchester England with a knock out (Ko) of 30-0-1, 21, is willing to go back to the box against Wilder, this December. Wilder, the 34-year-old boxer from Alabama, the U.S.A. with a knock out (Ko) of 41-1-1, 40, is in contract to fight in the rematch against Fury, in December 2020. Although he says that he says that in case the third rematch against Fury cannot be arranged, he will fight against some other player.
Fury’s Promoter’s Opinion
Frank Warren, Tyson Fury’s promoter informed BT Sports that he does not know if the said December fight could be organized. He stated that both Wilder and Fury’s promoters and broadcasters are putting a lot of effort to make the match happen but the odds of having the match is very low. According to him contracts are made for a stipulated time and cannot continue forever. He feels that Fury is in good form, so he wants the fight performance this year. If the fight cannot be organized and Fury wants to call off, the fight can be rescheduled to another time.
Wilder’s Manager contradicts Fury’s Promoter’s Opinion
Shelly Finkel, Wilder’s Manager spoke to Steve Kim of ESPN. Finkel said that Wilder’s statement was not correct. In his opinion, there is a chance for the fight to take place. To make that happen, Fury will have to forget about the trophy and box against a different opponent at the Royal Albert Hall on December 5. Warren will show up against the light heavyweight boxers Anthony Yarde and Lyndon Arthur at the same event. Then the duo can fight against each other, ultimately making the fight take place.
Fury And Wilder May jointly fight in the WBA-IBF-WBO world championship
If Fury wins the fight over Wilder, the duo could jointly fight against Anthony Joshua from England for the WBA-IBF-WBO world championship. Joshua will fight against Kubrat Pulev from Bulgaria on December 12. Currently, Anthony Joshua and Tyson Fury are the two ruling heavyweight world champions. Joshua claimed the WBA, IBF, and WBO titles and Fury claimed the WBA title.
