The Gypsy King claimed the title back in February but the America has activated his rematch clause . Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder will soon know where they’ll be meeting for their trilogy match this year. Fury’s promoter Bob Arum says the fight will take place in November or December in the U.S in a full stadium or Macau, China.
Bob Arum has revealed Tyson Fury is set to face Deontay Wilder for a third time in December. The Top Rank boss Arum is hopeful that Fury (30-0, 21 KOs) will be able to defend his WBC heavyweight title against Wilder (42-1-1, 41 KOs) in the United States.
The WBC world heavyweight champion is now in line to face Anthony Joshua to decide who is the undisputed king of the division.
But before that fight can take place, likely some time in 2021, Fury is obligated to satisfy his American rival’s option for a rematch, while Joshua also faces a stumbling block in the shape of Kubrat Pulev, putting his WBA, IBF and WBO belts on the line.
The location of mega fights in the heavyweight division has been the source of much speculation, with Fury vs Joshua tipped to move to the Middle East, despite the bout arguably representing the biggest event in British boxing history.
But Arum moved to play down fears from some fans that the fight is destined for the Middle East, insisting all options remain on the table.
