Fury vs. Wilder III takes place on Saturday, July 24 at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas
WBC heavyweight champion Tyson Fury is granting Deontay Wilder a rematch on July 24 at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.
Fury and Wilder drew in their first fight and in the rematch the Briton prized the hallowed Green and Gold Belt out of his grasp. This fight had a rematch clause that agreed to carry out the trilogy before the end of 2020, but due to the health crisis this was delayed.
Tyson Fury, who is trained by SugarHill Steward, commented on his rival and the respect he has for his ability and power:
“I don’t really mind this Wilder attitude. If he decided to remain quiet, it would have kind of smart. Now I am concentrating on the fight and the only thing that matters is winning.
“If you are an alcoholic or a drug addict, the only way to get over it is acceptance. Wilder has not yet accepted his defeat. But I must not underestimate him, he has nothing to lose and everything to gain.”
In the 10-round co-main event, 2016 Nigerian Olympian “The One and Only” Efe Ajagba will take on fellow unbeaten Frank “The Cuban Flash” Sánchez. The PPV telecast also includes the 12-round rematch between Finland’s Robert “The Nordic Nightmare” Helenius and Polish star Adam “Babyface” Kownacki, who was stopped by Helenius in the fourth round of their first bout in March 2020.
The eight-round PPV opener will see Toledo-born Jared “The Real Big Baby” Anderson step up in class against undefeated Russian contender Vladimir Tereshkin.
