Everything you need to know below:
Saturday, July 24.
It takes place at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, which has played host to some memorable nights of boxing, such as when Amir Khan fought Canelo in 2016. Fury has fought here before, when he defeated Swedish southpaw otto Wallin in September 2019.
12 three-minute championship rounds at heavyweight (200+lbs).
Fury's WBC World heavyweight title is on the line. It's the Brit's first defence of the prestigious green and gold title he won from Wilder in February 2020, which the American had held for over five years, making 10 successful defences, equal to Muhammad Ali's record.
UK fight fans can expect the main event fighters to make their ringwalks any time around 5am (GMT), but boxing events are often subject to delays.
TV coverage begins at 12am for UK fans.
The fight will be televised in the US on ESPN, according to their lucrative five-fight deal with Fury. It could also be dual-telecast on Fox Sports due to Wilder's promoter Al Haymon's deal with Premier Boxing Champions.
Frank Warren's deal with BT Sport means that UK fans will be able to watch on a PPV basis - price to be confirmed.

'Big Baby' Jared Anderson (9-0, 9KOs), 21 from Ohio, enters into his third eight-rounder with the aim to continue to knock out all his opponents and move into double figures unbeaten.
Everything you ever need to know about Fury-Wilder HERE
Fury: “It was a crazy roller coaster toward this fight. I always say, ‘you’re never fighting someone, until you’re in the ring opposite them.’ It wasn’t hard for me to adjust to fighting Deontay Wilder again. It’s what I’m paid to do. I hope Deontay brings something different for this fight. He needs to, if we’re facing facts. I hope he brings a challenge. Hopefully Malik Scott can bring the best out of Deontay Wilder.
“The beating from the last fight has had a physical, mental and emotional effect on his life. I was worried about him after the way I beat him. Deontay Wilder is a one-trick pony. He’s got great one-punch knockout power. I’m going to run him over like I’m an 18-wheeler. I guarantee he doesn’t go past where he did in the second fight. I’m looking for a big knockout straight away. He said all this stuff about bloodshed last time and we all know what happened last time.”
Wilder: “Enough has been said. It’s time to cut off his head. Come July the 24, there will be bloodshed. Get your tickets now and I’ll see you soon.
“A lot of things are going to be different in this fight. On July 24, the world is going to see. We’re going to reveal everything we’ve been working on.
I didn’t feel any way about Fury trying to negotiate another fight. We knew we were in the right and we knew they couldn’t run. Silence is golden. I’ve been happy and even happier in my time off. I’ve had time to spend with my family and now I’m rejuvenated and ready to go. I’ve been training non-stop during the pandemic and I’ve been building. All this time between fights is going to be good for me and bad for him. I’ve had nothing but time to progress. Whatever he does on July 24, we will have an answer for it. I’m training very hard and my mind is very violent. I’m ready to go.”
This pair of heavyweights are going to go down in history as one of the greatest trilogies and rivalries ever.
Their first fight in December 2018 produced such dramatics that the discussions that still rage on today. American fans claim there was a long count in the final round, which saw Fury decked heavily then incredibly rise up from the canvas to end the contest showboating with his hands behind his back. The draw was greeted with disappointment from many spectators who believed the Brit had been in control the entire contest.
Then, Fury teamed up with Sugarhill Steward and took on the Kronk Gym mentality to batter the unbeaten Alabaman all over the place until the towel was rightfully thrown in during the seventh stanza.
Now, they meet for a thrid and final time to complete the set, with Wilder promising bloodshed and Fury predicting an even earlier finish than before.
Tim Rickson, BBN Editor: “I believe Tyson will approach the fight the same way as the last one, with the mentality to score the knockout. It worked so why change a winning formula. Wilder had never been tested like before, so was surprised by his one and only conqueror, but I think he will be more formidable as an opponent this time and will have that killer instinct to watch out for. He stunned Fury in the first round of their second fight, which he managed to shake off and stay upright, but he admitted afterwards that he almost saw stars. If Fury can get close, lean on Wilder, use his strength and bullying tactics, then I think he wins even quicker than before - within six rounds.”
