Fury vs Wilder 3 in doubt after covid-19 outbreak in Fury camp
Tyson Fury fight against Deontay Wilder is reportedly in doubt after a covid-19 outbreak within the English boxer's training crew.
The 24 July Las Vegas fight between Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder is up in the air according to ESPN's Mike Coppinger after a covid-19 outbreak within Fury's training camp has jeopardized the event from going ahead in July. ESPN maintain that the third fight between both men may now be rescheduled in September.
A rescheduled fight in September could have a knock-on effect on Fury's next bout with Anthony Joshua earmarked for the same month in Saudi Arabia.
Finding a free slot in September could be tricky with Spence vs Pacquiao scheduled for 21 August which makes early September complicated. Óscar de la Hoya is in action on 11 September and the Canelo-Plant bout is earmarked for 18 September with the following weekend set to feature the Joshua vs Usyk combat.
Fury's promoter Bob Arum confirmed the covid-19 cases stating: “We have the doctors checking everybody. A couple guys have gotten covid. We’re assessing the situation, ” Arum claimed. ”Maybe there will be a postponement. Maybe it’ll be July 24. I don’t know yet.” He added that Fury was not showing any covid symptoms.
