Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder will face-off for the third time for Fury’s WBC World Heavyweight Championship. The trilogy fight was supposed to happen in 2020, but COVID has postponed it multiple times and is finally scheduled for 9 October 2021.
Check out the Tyson Fury vs Deontay Wilder III date, time, location, start time, tale of the tape, how to watch, and more details.
Date, Time, Location
Deontay Wilder was the reigning WBC World Heavyweight Champion when he first face Fury in December 2018. That match ended in a split decision draw with each judge scoring the bout differently. Both fighters claimed that they had done enough to win the match.
A rematch was announced a year after this fight and took place in February 2020. This time, Fury knocked down Wilder three times and earned a seventh-round stoppage to win the WBC and The Ring Lineal Heavyweight titles.
The third fight between them was initially announced for July 18, 2020, but the COVID-19 pandemic and Wilder’s recovery after surgery pushed it further. Fury then started to look for a fight against WBA (Super), IBF, WBO, & IBO Heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua which would have crowned an undisputed World Champion. However, Wilder started legal proceedings and got the decision in his favour, forcing a trilogy fight.
The fight was first scheduled for July 24, but it had to be moved to October 9 after Fury was found positive for COVID-19.
