TYON FURY’s fighting trilogy with fierce rival Deontay Wilder will continue on October 3, according to reports.

The Gypsy King will defend its newly crowned WBC title against the bronze bomber under lights in another showdown in Las Vegas.

Despite reports that the fight may continue in the summer, a scrap was always preferred towards the end of the year.

And now, Athletic writes that a date and location have been confirmed after Wilder exercised a revenge clause after his superb loss last month.

The impact of the coronavirus on sport had no effect on the date, Wilder preferring to prepare physically and mentally for the rematch.

Fury, 31, trained the American in his second bout, forcing Mark Breland to throw in the towel in the seventh round.

Wilder was furious at the decision and threatened to fire his long-term coach who was left in tears after being avoided from the locker room.

It was the first loss in his professional career – 14 months after their controversial draw.

Wilder blamed the defeat on his 45lb suit for claiming that he had weakened his legs by the time he entered the ring.

Their revenge in October means that an undisputed showdown with Anthony Joshua will not take place this year.

Boxing fans were hoping for an all-British showdown in 2020 after AJ’s defense against Kubrat Pulev at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on June 20.

But even this struggle is questioned after the murderous worldwide spread of Covid-19.
