Fury vs Wilder 3 : TYSON FURY and Deontay Wilder are set to go to war for a third time.
The Gypsy King claimed a stunning TKO victory in Las Vegas as he inflicted the first defeat of Wilder’s career at the MGM Grand on February 22.
With Anthony Joshua facing mandatory challenger Kubrat Pulev in June, Wilder has been quick to take out the rematch clause which was included in the fight contract with Fury.
As such, the pair will again go toe-to-toe for the WBC crown – with a unification showdown against AJ surely the next step later this year.
Under the terms of the agreement, world champion Fury will take a 60/40 split of the purse for the rematch.
But UK fight fans may be disappointed that it’s set to be another early morning start, with Wilder’s promoter Bob Arum stating that the fight will ‘100 percent’ be held on US soil.
When is Fury vs Wilder 3?
WILDER had 30 days to exercise his right to a rematch following his defeat in Vegas.
The Bronze Bomber has done that, with a provisional date for the bout now pencilled in.
Originally it look liked the pair would go to battle for a THIRD time on Saturday, July 18.
But following the coronavirus outbreak, a new date of October 3 reportedly been agreed by the two camps.
Finkel said: “We did exercise [the rematch clause]. We want to fight Fury next and we wanted to make sure we sent the letter and that it was done.”
Which TV channel and Fury vs Wilder 3 live stream can I watch it on?
