Fury vs Wilder Third fight may be moved to October


British world heavyweight champion Tyson Fury could fight American Deontay Wilder for a third time in October rather than a July date earlier put forward, says promoter Frank Warren.

Last month, Fury, claimed the WBC title after a seventh-round technical knockout win over Wilder at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

The pair had previously fought in Los Angeles in December 2018, which ended in a controversial draw.

Fury now set his sight to face fellow Briton Anthony Joshua – the current holder of the WBA, IBF and WBO world heavyweight titles, so his career would be “completed” and then retire.

But that dream was postponed after Wilder triggered a clause in their second-fight contract, which gave him a 30-day window to accept a trilogy fight.

The most recent undisputed champion was since Lennox Lewis held all the belts in 2000.
