Tyson Fury’s trilogy fight with Deontay Wilder for the WBC belt has been scheduled to hold on July 24, while his multi-million blockbuster with Anthony Joshua for the unification fight now depends on both successfully defending their world heavyweight titles this summer, as Joshua is expected to face mandatory challenger, Ukrainian Aleksandr Usyk, for the WBO belt.

Bob Arum, Fury’s US promoter, has confirmed the development:

“Fury vs. Wilder is definitely on here in Vegas at the Allegiant Stadium. No question”.

“The lawyers are working on the contracts as we speak and the official announcement will come very shortly”.

“There is no chance of Wilder taking step aside compensation. Not even at ridiculously over inflated sums like the $20million (£14m) which has been speculated”.

Of the legal judgement which has prevented Fury and Joshua finally fighting in Saudi Arabia in August for the undisputed world heavyweight title, Arum said: “Tyson’s not happy but he’s a real fighting man”.
