Yesterday, the British tabloid The Sun announced that the third fight between Deontay Wilder and Tyson Fury was canceled, and today Wilder’s co-manager Shelley Finkel denied this information and announced that the fight would take place in December.
The American heavyweight contender lost his WBC belt in February this year to Fury in round 7. After this match, a revenge was appointed, which had been postponed several times for various reasons.
Shelley Finkel vehemently denied The Sun’s speculation that Wilder’s contract had expired and stated:
“They are wrong, we will fight in December.”
In general, the question of the date and place of the battle remains uncertain and has become even more confusing.
If the British tabloid is right, there is nothing to stop Fury from meeting Anthony Joshua in the ring, in a duel where the undisputed heavyweight champion will finally be determined. And the “Gypsy King” is strategically interested in this fight even more than in the rematch with Wilder. However, one way or another, but the dots over the i in the near future will be placed and the situation will finally clear up..
