Tyson Fury VS Deontay Wilder III

by Chris Balding

After drawing their first fight, then Fury winning the rematch by TKO the two heavyweights meet again for the final bout in their trilogy. 

The third fight was meant to take place on the 24th of July however fight fans have had to wait after Tyson Fury contracted Covid. 

Many believe this Wilder’s last chance to become a champion. Wilder has made some changes to his camp ahead of the fight sacking Mark Breland, who threw in the towel in his last fight against Fury, in favour of new head trainer Malik Scott. 

When does the fight start

The bill starts at 1am but the walkout for the main bout is due at 4am but could start earlier depending on the undercard fights. Might be worth putting the kettle on if you want to watch it live.

Where does it take place

The conclusion to the trilogy takes place in the city of sin at the T mobile arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. Unfortunate for UK fans that all three fights have taken place in different venues in the states. We were hoping since Fury holds the belt that he could have demanded a fight on home turf but it looks like he wants to cash in instead catering for the American audience. 

Who is on the undercard

The undercard for the fight is full of exciting prospects, many of whom are big hitters. 

Frank Sanchez will meet Efe Ajagba in the ring, both fighters will put their perfect records on the line. Sanchez is 18-0 and Ajagba’s record is 15-0. 

A fiery rematch will take place between Robert Helenius and Adam Kownacki. Kownacki was beaten by Helenius in their first meeting which was his first ever lost, so expect fireworks for their rematch. 

The young American prospect Jared Anderson will fight Russian Vladimir Tereshkin. Anderson will be well known to Fury as he was his sparring partner for the Fury VS Wilder II fight. Fury praised the young boxer and credited him a big help in preparation for the fight.

What do the bookies say

The bookies favour the reigning WBC champion Tyson Fury. The bookies expect the longer the fight goes on the more likely Fury will retain his belt.
