The third and deciding clash between World Boxing Council heavyweight champion Tyson “The Gypsy King” Fury and former world champion Deontay “The Bronze Bomber” Wilder, scheduled for Saturday, July 24 at T-Mobile Arena Las Vegas , was postponed due to Fury’s positive COVID-19 diagnosis.
The two warriors will now meet on Saturday, October 9 at the T-Mobile Arena and live on ESPN + PPV and FOX Sports PPV, resuming one of the great rivalries in the division`s history.
Tickets purchased for July 24 will be accepted for the rescheduled date.
“I wanted nothing more than to fight Wilder on July 24, but I guess the beating will have to wait. Make no mistake, I will come back and be better than ever. We will fight on October 9 and I will knock him out!” Fury vowed.
“Deontay Wilder is set to take the world title back from him on October 9,” promised Shelly Finkel, managing director of Wilder.
