Heavyweight rivals Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder are set to do battle for a third time this summer. Fury produced one of heavyweight boxing’s finest ever performances to destroy Wilder in February 2020 and become a world champion once again. Fury’s win led to calls for him to face off against fellow British superstar Anthony Joshua in a huge undisputed title clash. After much debate, a date and venue for that era-defining fight was set but Wilder’s representatives took legal action to invoke a clause in his contract with Fury to secure a trilogy clash.
The Fury camp had thought that clause had expired which would allow him to face Joshua. But an arbitration judge ruled in Wilder’s favour in May and ordered the two old foes to meet once again. Fury will now be looking to claim another win and keep his dreams of facing AJ alive while Wilder will be out for revenge.
