Thee Bronze Bombers' long awaited Revenge
In February of 2020, the boxing world was in utter shock as Tyson Fury defeated Deontay Wilder with a TKO in the seventh round. Handing Wilder his first loss of his career, Fury was ready to set up the big fight to take on Anthony Joshua. This fight would unify the heavyweight belts, a fight Wilder has been trying to get for years. Yet the blockbuster fight is going to be held off for now.
Earlier in the week an arbitration judge ruled in favor of Wilder's rematch clause. This means that the rematch must happen before September 15 of this year. This puts a hold on the fight between Joshua and Fury that was set for August 14th of this year.
Both Fury and Wilder have not fought since their match in February of 2020. Fury has been looking into ways to pay Wilder's camp off, yet nothing worked. Wilder has been keeping in shape and his new trainer took notice. “Wilder looks more determined than ever” says his new trainer," Malik Scott.
Scott is a former Heavyweight boxer as well. He went 38-3-1 with 14 KO. One of his loses was to Wilder in 2014, this fight lasted only 96 seconds. While it may seem weird to some, this may be a good move for the Wilder camp.
Fury on the other hand has stuck with his camp and promoter Bob Arum. Arum has commented on this matter saying “It’s better to get rid of him and go about our business. We can make the Fury Joshua fight for November or December.”
Arum has booked Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas for the venue of Fury vs Wilder 3. As of Thursday, it has been confirmed the fight will take place on July 24th. This makes it a quick clash as it is two months away.
Both fighters have had plenty of time to train and get ready for whatever came their way. The final fight is going to happen. It will end the feud between these two and crown a true champion. More than not the winner of this fight will end up fighting T Joshua to crown an undisputed Heavyweight champ.
