Boxing SPORTS GIST TYSON FURY VS DEONTAY WILDER’S FIGHT TO BE POSTPONED DUE TO COVID-19 By Admin Posted on 3 weeks ago 2 min read 0 0 Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Google+ Share on Pinterest Share on Linkedin Farouq Oduola A. Sources claimed, there is a COVID-19 outbreak in Tyson Fury’s camp, which will certainly force his heavyweight title bout against Deontay Wilder on July 24 to be postponed. The fight, which is scheduled to take place at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, has yet to be officially confirmed. “We continue to monitor Tyson’s and his team’s health, and the status of the event has not altered to date,” Fury’s Promoter, Top Rank stated in a statement on Thursday. The bout is a joint pay-per-view with Fox, and that network has Manny Pacquiao-Errol Spence Jr. on Aug. 21, thus Fury-Wilder 3 is likely to be pushed back to September. “It’s been a tremendous roller coaster leading up to this fight,” Fury said during a press conference in Los Angeles last month to promote the match. “I usually tell people, ‘You don’t fight someone until you’re in the ring with them.'” Wilder and Fury have previously faced each other twice. The first fight took place in December 2018 and resulted in a controversial draw. Despite two knockdowns, one of which came in the last round, most analysts thought Fury deserved to win.
