Tyson Fury finally breaks silence since postponing Deontay Wilder fight

When is the Tyson Fury fight?

The trilogy between WBC and Lineal Heavyweight champion Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder will now take place on Oct. 9 at T-Mobile Center in Las Vegas, Fury announced on Thursday. The championship fight, originally scheduled for July 24, was postponed because of a COVID-19 outbreak in Fury's camp on July 8. Sports IllustratedFury-Wilder Fight Rescheduled for October After COVID-19 Outbreak

The battle between big men is now set for Oct. 9 at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Top Rank announced Thursday. The fight, an ESPN+ and Fox pay-per-view, was scheduled for July 24 but was postponed last Thursday after Fury tested positive for COVID-19 amid an outbreak in his camp. ESPN reported at the time that Oct. 9 was the target date for the rescheduled title tilt.

Per sources, Fury was tested on July 5 and was notified of the positive result the next day.

He tested negative on Tuesday and shortly after that was cleared by doctors to travel home. Fury received the first vaccine shot and experienced mild symptoms.

"I wanted nothing more than to smash the 'Big Dosser' on July 24, but I guess the beating will have to wait," Fury said. "Make no mistake, I will be back and better than ever. We will fight Oct. 9, and I will knock him spark out!"

The champion, ESPN's No. 6 pound-for-pound boxer, needs time to recover and resume training camp, pushing the fight to October, but there were also other considerations. Manny Pacquiao and Errol Spence Jr. meet in a major pay-per-view title fight on Aug. 21. Canelo Alvarez, boxing's biggest star, remains in talks for a Sept. 18 fight with Caleb Plant.

Top Rank and PBC, which will co-promote Fury-Wilder, along with ESPN and Fox, are trying to maximize PPV revenue for the third meeting. The second fight, which Fury won by seventh-round TKO in February 2020, generated nearly $17 million at the gate, a Nevada record for a heavyweight title fight.

"It was a crazy roller coaster toward this fight," Fury said at last month's news conference in Los Angeles to promote the fight. "I always say, 'You're never fighting someone until you're in the ring opposite them.'"

Three other heavyweight bouts -- Efe Ajagba vs. Frank Sanchez, Robert Helenius vs. Adam Kownacki 2 and Jared Anderson vs. Vladimir Tereshkin -- that were originally scheduled as part of the July 24 undercard have also been moved to Oct. 9, sources tell ESPN.

The first fight between Fury and Wilder was in December 2018, a disputed draw. Despite Fury suffering two knockdowns -- including one in the final round -- most observers believed he deserved the nod.

The "Gypsy King" left no doubt in the rematch, scoring two knockdowns himself en route to a seventh-round stoppage after Wilder's cornerman, Mark Breland, threw in the towel.

Neither Fury, 32, nor Wilder has appeared in the ring since. Wilder, 35, exercised his contractual right to a third fight afterward, but the pandemic prevented Top Rank (Fury's promoter) and PBC from staging the fight before a full audience.

Top Rank and PBC attempted to stage the bout last December after a previously planned October date was deemed unfeasible due to COVID-19 restrictions, but the unexpected resumption of the college football season left few available PPV dates in the final month of 2020 with two networks involved.

Fury (30-0-1, 21 KOs) and his team then considered the rematch clause expired and pushed forward with negotiations for a megafight with fellow Englishman Anthony Joshua, which would crown an undisputed heavyweight champion. The sides agreed to a deal in May, with Fury announcing on May 16 that the fight would take place Aug. 14 in Saudi Arabia.

In the background, an independent arbitrator, Daniel Weinstein, was determining whether Fury indeed owed Wilder (42-1-1, 41 KOs) a third fight. Top Rank chairman Bob Arum was deposed, as was his stepson, Top Rank president Todd duBoef. So, too, were PBC founder Al Haymon, Wilder manager Shelly Finkel and PBC executive Bruce Binkow. Fury and Wilder also gave depositions.

On May 17, one day after Fury announced he would meet Joshua in August, Weinstein ruled that he owed Wilder another fight.

"I didn't feel any way about Fury trying to negotiate another fight," Wilder said at the news conference last month in Los Angeles. "We knew we were in the right, and we knew they couldn't run."

Now Wilder has a new date circled on his calendar for that long-awaited shot at revenge.

Tyson Fury vs. Deontay Wilder Trilogy Fight Rescheduled for October 9

Bleacher Report 15 July, 2021 - 04:36pm

A new date for the long-awaited third fight between Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder has been set. 

Fury confirmed in a post on his Twitter account that the WBC and Ring heavyweight championship bout will take place on Oct. 9 at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.

Trilogy Update 🚨 <br>Posted by <a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/TeamFury?src=hash&amp;ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">#TeamFury</a> <a href="https://t.co/tk8msnNXMy">pic.twitter.com/tk8msnNXMy</a>

ESPN's Mike Coppinger first reported the new date.

Fury and Wilder were originally supposed to square off on July 24, but the bout was postponed because of a COVID-19 outbreak in Fury's camp. 

There has been a long journey to get to a third fight between Fury and Wilder. Their first bout in Dec. 2018 ended in a draw. 

Rather than do an immediate rematch, both boxers had two fights each against other opponents in 2019. 

Fury and Wilder finally agreed to a second bout in November 2019. The match took place at the MGM Grand Garden Arena on Feb. 22, 2020. The Gypsy King silenced his rival with a seventh-round TKO to win the WBC and The Ring heavyweight titles. 

Wilder triggered the rematch clause in his contract one week after the loss, but Fury's camp started exploring other options late last year when no deal could be worked out. 

Wilder's loss to Fury was the first loss of his career in 44 professional fights. Fury is 30-0-1 in 31 bouts since turning pro in 2008.

Fury-Wilder rescheduled for October 9th after Covid-19 delay

Bad Left Hook 15 July, 2021 - 04:10pm

The much-delayed trilogy gets a new date

Earlier reports indicated that the fight was unlikely to happen anytime before September, and now we know the plan for the (hopeful) conclusion of this rivalry. If the fight were to have happened in July, it would have been a mere year-and-a-half since their last time in a ring. If it does actually happen in October, which I personally wouldn’t bet any kind of money on, it’ll have been 20 months since either man had a fight outside of arbitration.

It’s hard to know who benefits or suffers more from these seemingly endless delays, but suspicion and ill will from the fans is only increasing.

Tyson Fury-Deontay Wilder fight pushed back after Fury COVID test

Tyson Fury CONFIRMS trilogy blockbuster with Deontay Wilder will be postponed until October 9

Daily Mail 15 July, 2021 - 04:10pm

By Ollie Lewis For Mailonline

Tyson Fury's world heavyweight title defence against Deontay Wilder, originally scheduled for July 24, has officially been postponed until October 9.

A positive coronavirus test for Fury has forced the trilogy fight to be rearranged for early October, it was confirmed by the Briton and his co-promoters Top Rank on Thursday. The Gypsy King has received his first vaccination dose, but is yet to receive his second. 

'WBC and lineal heavyweight champion Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder will now conclude their epic trilogy on October 9 at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas after the July 24 was postponed due to Fury's positive Covid-19 diagnosis,' a statement from the Gypsy King's Twitter account read.

'Tickets purchased for July 24 will be honoured for the rescheduled date'.

Fury also said, via PA news agency: 'I want nothing more than to smash the 'Big Dosser' on July 24, but I guess the beating will have to wait. Make no mistake, I will be back and better than ever. We will fight Oct, 9 and I will knock him spark out.'

Wilder's manager Shelly Finkel added: 'This is what we went to arbitration for. He just wanted what was owed to him. He remains ready to reclaim his world title on Oct 9.' 

The Gypsy King tested positive for coronavirus just weeks from their Las Vegas blockbuster

A US judge ordered the heavyweight giants to meet for a third time after Wilder disputed Team Fury's claim that their rematch clause had expired.

The Gypsy King had agreed to take on Anthony Joshua for the undisputed heavyweight crown, but those plans were halted following the arbitration. 

Joshua is set to defend his IBF, WBA and WBO titles against Ukraine's Oleksandr Usyk in London on September 25, two weeks before his heavyweight rivals do battle in the United States. 

Upon learning of Fury's positive Covid case, Wilder reportedly told co-manager Shelly FInkel via Michael Benson: 'Again now, he did wrong and I'm the one being penalised.' Wilder previously made outlandish cheating accusations against Fury following his knockout defeat in their rematch.

An October fallback date will essentially rule out any chance of Fury facing Joshua in a predicted December showdown in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. 

Fury battered Wilder from pillar to post when they last met in Las Vegas in February 2020

Fury and Wilder played out a thrilling draw in their first fight in December 2018, before the Briton laid on a savage beating of the previously undefeated American in February 2020. 

The Bronze Bomber has since claimed that Fury cheated during their second fight in Sin City, alleging that Fury had an 'egg weight' concealed in his glove, that his water was spiked, and that his ring walk outfit was too heavy. 

Fury and Wilder had been engaging in their usual trash talk in the build up to this fight, with the British star vowing to 'run him over like an 18-wheeler'.

'I gave my game plan away the first time because he wasn't good enough to do anything about it, I'll do the same thing this time,' he said at their first press conference - which saw the two face off in silence for an awkward five minutes.

Fury's (L) delayed bout sees his mega-fight with Anthony Joshua (R) pushed back even further 

Fury, now WBC world champion, has not fought since beating Wilder in February 2020

'Deontay Wilder is a one trick pony, he has one punch power, we all know that, great. What I'll do to him this time is run him over as if I'm an 18-wheeler and he's a human being, I guarantee you it does not go past where it did before. 

'I've had 18 months of practicing what I'm gonna do to him. I want to get up to 300 pounds for this fight and I'm looking for the big knockout straight away.' 

Wilder has hit back in recent weeks and reiterated his claims that Fury 'cheated' in their second fight, suggesting he had put an egg weight in his gloves, and stressed he believed Fury would try to cheat in their third bout.

'You think he ain't gonna try to cheat this time?' he told 78SPORTSTV. 'Oh they're thinking, they're coming up with a master plan.

'But my thing to him - man, you couldn't even get me out on loaded gloves and the conditions I was under.

'You couldn't knock me out, you didn't knock me out.'

Tyson Fury spotted renting car without mask amid COVID concerns (Photo)

LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA - JUNE 15: Tyson Fury speaks at the press conference with Deontay Wilder at The Novo by Microsoft at L.A. Live on June 15, 2021 in Los Angeles, California. (Photo by Meg Oliphant/Getty Images)

Almost a week ago, reports broke that Tyson Fury vs. Deontay Wilder 3 is off due to a COVID breakout in Fury’s camp. Fury himself was reported to have tested positive for COVID. A week later, he was spotted at an exotic car rental store and without a mask.

On July 13, Top Rank CEO Bob Arum told Boxingscene.com that Fury seemed much better, and the boxing bout would likely move to Oct. 9. He also shed light on the initial reports of Fury’s positive COVID test.

“He got vaccinated in Miami,” Arum told Boxingscene.com. “He got the first shot. And then he said he didn’t wanna get the second shot because he didn’t wanna get sick [from the vaccination] so close to the fight. So, he got COVID instead.”

According to what Arum told Boxingscene.com, Fury was displaying COVID symptoms last Thursday. That’s incredibly troubling after a picture of Fury was posted on Instagram by Royalty Exotic Cars at their Las Vegas location on Wednesday, July 14.

“Thanks for stopping by champ,” read a caption under their photo of Fury on Instagram.

Numerous people left comments pointing out Fury’s COVID status. Royalty Exotic Cars turned off comments for the post after more comments appeared.

People online have speculated about the timing of Fury’s positive COVID test and questioned if he ever had COVID at all or if he was using it as an excuse to buy more time to prepare for the Wilder trilogy.

This latest photo isn’t going to help quell those ideas. It’s a bad look all the way around. CDC guidelines state that people who test positive for COVID might have to be quarantined from 10-20 days, depending on the severity of their illness.

If Fury was positive for COVID on Thursday, July 8, it’s pretty reckless of him to be out in public without a mask less than one week later. Fury is losing public support at a record pace.

Tyson Fury-Deontay Wilder fight rescheduled for Oct. 9 due to Fury's positive COVID-19 diagnosis

Yahoo Sports 15 July, 2021 - 04:10pm

Fury tweeted out the announcement Thursday, which confirmed his positive test.

The fight postponement was expected after rumors emerged suggesting there was a COVID-19 outbreak in Fury's camp. Fury and three members of his team reportedly tested positive for COVID. Fury reportedly has received one dose of the COVID-19 vaccine, but not the second. He was reportedly "sick, but not that sick," following the positive test. 

Wilder is hoping for redemption after losing to Fury in 2020. Wilder blamed his heavy costume for the loss, saying it made his legs tired. 

The Oct. 9 fight will be the third between Fury and Wilder. The two also fought to a draw in 2018. 

If Fury can pick up a win Oct. 9, he would hold a 2-0-1 record over Wilder. If Wilder takes the fight Oct. 9, that could set up a fourth bout to break that tie.

Tyson Fury vs. Deontay Wilder 3: Trilogy bout moved to Oct. 9 after Fury tests positive for COVID-19

CBS Sports 15 July, 2021 - 04:10pm

After numerous delays to the trilogy bout, the third meeting between Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder will have to wait a couple more months. The fight, which was originally scheduled for July 24 in Las Vegas, was officially postponed on Thursday after Fury tested positive for COVID-19 while in training camp. The bout will now take place on Oct. 9 inside the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas while being broadcast on ESPN/FOX PPV.

"I wanted nothing more than to smash the 'Big Dosser' on July 24, but I guess the beating will have to wait," Fury said. "Make no mistake, I will be back and better than ever. We will fight Oct. 9, and I will knock him spark out!"

The trilogy took a long time to develop after many back and forths timing and contract disputes. Fury stopped Wilder emphatically in the rematch in February 2020, but the two had agreed to a trilogy clause with the loser getting the short side of a 60/40 split. Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, as well as difficulties in reaching agreements for the trilogy, Fury and his team moved on to negotiations with unified champ Anthony Joshua.

Fury vs Wilder 3: Shelly Finkel says Deontay will be ready for new October date

Bad Left Hook 15 July, 2021 - 02:26pm

The veteran manager says he’s as sure as he can be about the new date.

Oct. 9 is the new date to circle on your calendar for a heavyweight tussle between two men who are intimately (and violently) acquainted.

“I wanted nothing more than to smash the big dosser on July 24, but I guess the beating will have to wait,” Fury said in a Thursday press release. “Make no mistake, I will be back and better than ever. We will fight Oct. 9, and I will knock him spark out!”

“This is what we went to arbitration for,” said Shelly Finkel, Wilder’s manager, in the same release. “Deontay just wanted what was owed to him. He remains ready to reclaim his world title on Oct. 9.’’

So, how confident is Shelly that the show will go on?

“I am sure as much as I can be,” he said when I touched base with him Thursday. “Deontay is gonna be ready, but there are no guarantees in life. Pernell Whitaker stepped off a curb and got hit by a car.”

Finkel managed Whitaker, who died tragically in 2019, who was part of that stellar collection of USA talent that performed so well at the 1984 Olympics, and then transitioned with hefty fanfare to the pro scene.

We’ve been reminded of the “no guarantees” axiom quite a bit in recent times, haven’t we? We saw the Teofimo Lopez vs George Kambosos Jr match scratched, because Teofimo contracted COVID. That one has moved — for various reasons — from June 5 to June 19 to Aug. 14 to Sept. 11, and now the plan is Oct. 17 in Australia, which Lopez’s team may not do.

Anyone reading this is probably aware, there is no shortage of theorists on social media who think the Lopez and Fury COVID positives are BS, that both those promotions got moved because of other reasons. And not just courtesy of Joe Blows from Idaho. Promoter Leonard Ellerbe pointed out that as far as he knew, ticket sales for Lopez-Kambosos in Miami were weak. Basically, he toed the line, showing proper decency and decorum to Teofimo, while also furnishing his suspicion that the COVID diagnosis would allow the fight to be postponed, so more work could be done to heighten interest, and boost ticket sales.

“Wishing (Teofimo) a speedy recovery, COVID is no joke, it has damaged so many families around the world,” Ellerbe Tweeted. “Teo and his pops have told everyone they are predicting two million PPV buys for his fight against Kambosos. One thing for sure before testing positive, ticket sales were completely trash!”

Another promoter, Eddie Hearn, spoke out on his suspicions. He told Ak and Barak on SiriusXM that he thinks the Fury COVID news is fishy smelling.

“I don’t know whether it was 25 percent or 30 percent of the tickets have been sold, but that’s disastrous,” said Hearn, who right now has no extra love for Fury and promoter Bob Arum, after plans for an Anthony Joshua-Tyson Fury fight got torched. “There was no hype. This was going to do very, very poor pay-per-view numbers.”

Finkel has been in the fight game since the 1970s, he’s well aware of the tricks of the trade, and how it’s the ultimate fool’s errand to make plans too far ahead in boxing, because situations so frequently change.

So he’s taking the Fury COVID development at face value, and not investing any time or energy in alternative theories.

“I want to believe the man had COVID, that’s why he postponed, and he will be OK to fight Oct. 9,” Finkel told Bad Left Hook. “We had a fight, the man cancelled, said he was COVID positive.”

My Three Cents: There would be less chatter if there were more transparency. In cases like these, to tamp down on the conspiracy theorizing, if I were a manager or promoter, I’d release documents and have a doctor testify to assure the masses that no subterfuge was afoot. I’m not sure why more people don’t go that route, to be honest.

Also, there’s no polite way to say this: Anyone counting down to a $3 million or $30 million dollar payday should get fully vaccinated, to radically lessen the chance they contract COVID and/or get get sick from the infection. To not do so is foolish, though it would be narrow-minded to dismiss the reality that peoples’ skepticism is earned, because there is a too-rich history of people in power manipulating the masses with callous indifference.
