Tyson Fury vs Deontay Wilder: WBC postpones heavyweight trilogy fight
British boxer, Tyson Fury’s heavyweight trilogy title defence against American fighter, Deontay Wilder has been postponed.
The July 24 heavyweight fight was postponed after members of Fury’s camp contracted COVID-19.
The World Boxing Council, WBC, confirmed this in a tweet via their Twitter handle on Friday.
The WBC, however, did not say when the trilogy fight would now hold.
“Fury vs Wilder III will be postponed,” the WBC tweeted. “We wish Tyson Fury’s team and him speedy recovery from COVID.”
Recall that Fury handed Wilder a brutal beating in seven one-sided rounds in their second fight in February last year.
Their first fight, in December 2018 ended in a controversial split-decision draw in which Fury was knocked down twice.
Neither Fury nor Wilder has fought since their bout in Las Vegas in 2020.
