AJ and Fury have had to scrape themselves back into the dust pan in and out of the ring a bit, have a proven rework while Lewis and Bowe had just toppled biggest threats and remain unblemished respectfully. As much as I have knocked Bowe and his career self sabotage I'm just not sure Fury isn't pulling a bit of a charade at this point and trying to extend the carnival show. At least Bowe looked the world in the eye on stage and dropped the trinket straight in the bin not wasting our time . Did sign to fight Mercer too but yeh.

    Tyson Fury makes explosive claim after Deontay Wilder fight rescheduled for October

    Tyson Fury has vowed to "spark out" Deontay Wilder after the WBC heavyweight title fight was confirmed for October 9 in Las Vegas. Fury was scheduled to fight Wilder for the third time in the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas on July 24, but the bout was postponed after an outbreak of COVID-19 in the Briton's camp.

    The much-anticipated fight has been a long time coming, with several attempts to stage it falling through due to coronavirus restrictions.

    Fury, who is unbeaten in 31 professional bouts with 21 knock-outs to his name, has been frustrated by his lack of action since he won the second bout via knockout in Los Angeles in February 2020.

    The 32-year-old has repeatedly spoken of his desire to fight Anthony Joshua, who holds the other three significant titles at heavyweight, but an arbitration hearing ruled that Wilder had contractual grounds for a third contest.

    After the late postponement earlier this month, Fury will get his chance to put the American behind him in October.

    "I wanted nothing more than to smash the Big Dosser on July 24, but I guess the beating will have to wait," he said.

    "Make no mistake, I will be back and better than ever. We will fight October 9, and I will knock him spark out."

    Fury's win last February is the only loss on Wilder's record, which reads: 42 wins and 41 knock-outs from his 44 fights.

    His manager, Shelly Finkel said: "This is what we went to arbitration for. He just wanted what was owed to him.

    "He remains ready to reclaim his world title on October 9."

    A whopping 595 days will have elapsed since Fury's dramatic knock-out win in February 2020 by the time October 9 comes around.

    Promoter Frank Warren believes the extended build-up will only serve to make the final fight in the trilogy more special.

    "I'm glad that we could all agree a new date quickly for Tyson to defend his title," he said.

    "Tyson is a fighting man and I know how frustrated he is that he can't compete this month. It's such a shame to lose a fight of this magnitude to COVID.

    "That said, the extra time he gets to prepare is just going to ensure he's bigger and better than ever before.

    "I've never been more certain that Tyson is going to deliver a spectacular performance and remain the number one heavyweight on the planet."

    No.

    It’s unbelievable isn’t it - an undefeated British boxer against an American knockout machine. A trilogy fight after 2 bouts that gave value for money.

    It should be HUGE …. But they have fucked around so much, plus the second fight was such a one-sided beat down that nobody is interested.

    Frank Warren responds to Eddie Hearn's 'conspiracy theory' over Tyson Fury vs Deontay Wilder

    Warren and Hearn have been long-time rivals, and the Queensberry Promotions boss has slammed his opposite number as spouting "absolute nonsense"

    Frank Warren has branded Eddie Hearn's theory that ticket sales were the real reason for Tyson Fury's trilogy with Deontay Wilder being postponed "a load of nonsense".

    Hearn claimed only a small fraction of the 20,000 tickets had been sold, and that those sales may be playing a bigger part in decisions around the fight than the coronavirus outbreak in Fury's camp.

    But Fury's promoter Warren has slammed the Matchroom Boxing boss among a number of 'conspiracy theorists' for his thought that tickets had to do with the cancellation, and rebuffed that they had already sold a massive gate in the tens of millions.

    "There have been a lot of conspiracy theories floating around as to why Tyson Fury against Deontay Wilder was postponed," Warren said in his Daily Star column.

    "One of those is supposedly a lack of ticket sales - that theory has been pushed by Eddie Hearn this week.

    "Yet Bob Arum [Fury's American promoter] has informed me that $14m (£10.1m) worth of tickets had been sold for the July 24 date at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.

    "That is without UK fans being allowed to travel over because of the current restrictions on getting into the US, so anyone claiming ticket sales is the reason is talking a load of nonsense."

    Warren also said that ticket sales were performing better than expected given Fury's home fans cannot curranty travel to the United States due to President Joe Biden's travel ban.

    And he says high rollers in Las Vegas casinos had already snapped up the big money seats for the fight, with ticket prices starting at $500.

    "US fans were buying tickets because they're desperate for big events after lockdown," Warren continued. "While the casinos in Las Vegas were snapping them up for their high rollers, too.

    "Just imagine how many more tickets could have been sold on fight week when tourists from across the US were enjoying a summer break in Vegas."

    Warren has also mentioned that the bout had secured a UK broadcaster, despite claims to the contrary by Hearn and other detractors, who believe the coronavirus outbreak is a distraction tactic from other failings.

    "Contrary to other speculation, there was no issue getting a UK TV broadcaster," he added. "That was set to be made official until we found out the fight had to be delayed.

    "Fury against Wilder has to happen next, that is what the US judge said and it will, we just have to wait a little longer and the heavyweight division remains clogged up at the top."

    Fury dominated Wilder in their last outing, brutally stopping him in the seventh round after having fought to a controversial draw in their initial 2018 meeting.

    Many fans felt that Fury had won the first bout, but after being put down in the 12th round, judges scored it a draw so a rematch was called for the WBC title.

    Fury was scheduled to face Anthony Joshua on August 14 in Saudi Arabia, but plans for the super-fight were shelved when an arbitrator ordered a third fight between he and Wilder.

    Way this 3rd 4th 5th Covid spike is happening they may be counting on tossing out the Oct date also. Maybe if teams and fighters are using the Covid excuse to scrap struggling events they should be required to take a test and provide results or be heavily fined. At least go back to hatching 'due to rib injury' excuses. Big goof was exposed, declared positive and next you know he's posing for fan photos and running around Vegas. TF is that? When does a commission start hitting you in the wallet.

    Yet on the other side of the world, they're managing to hold a slew of sporting events, in a massive event called the Olympics. Granted... with some hiccups and canceled events due to COVID... but a lot more understandable at that massive scale. Sports have managed to go on, including Euro Cups, NBA championships, etc. Yet somehow this circus called heavyweight boxing keeps fumbling about... now adding COVID as another excuse reason for cancelation. That we continue to care makes us masochists.

    Bob Arum admits he 'screamed' at the Tyson Fury camp over Covid liberties

    Top Rank’s chairman and boxing promoter Bob Arum revealed that WBC heavyweight champion Tyson Fury did not have both his vaccinations against COVID-19.

    Fury had received one vaccination shot, but decided against having the second, as he was concerned about having a reaction that would force him to miss training camp time.

    Subsequently, ‘The Gypsy King’ ended up getting COVID-19, testing positive on July 5, which led to the announcement of the anticipated match with Deontay Wilder being pushed back from July 24 to October 9.

    Speaking to WBN, Arum said:

    “They told me he was vaccinated. I assumed it was two shots. Who gets vaccinated and doesn’t get their second shot?

    “I never knew that he hadn’t (gotten the second one) until he got sick. I really screamed at all of them.

    “The people in the gym, I mean, we had no controls. It was like every sparring partner brought his friend, other corner people.

    “SugarHill (Steward) had these Russians he trains running around. There was absolutely no precaution taken, which a lot of it was our fault. We should have been the adults in the room.”

    While Fury did not complete his round of vaccinations, Wilder and his immediate team did at the insistence of his management, even though they were initially reluctant.

    Arum said: “They did the right thing, and they’re to be commended, and we didn’t do the right thing.”

    In addition, Arum also hit back at rival promoter Eddie Hearn’s comments regarding the fight being pushed back due to slow ticket sales. He said:

    “All those people on social media who said, ‘hey, it was because of slow ticket sales,’ — yeah, slow ticket sales.

    “We had $15 million in the bank from ticket sales. This is not like a fighter pulls out because his shoulder hurts. Bicep hurts. There, there might be room for suspicion.”

    Fury is currently with his pregnant wife Paris back in the UK, who is due to give birth before the WBC Champion will restart his training for the rescheduled bout.

    True but Fury won’t fight AJ, he’s terrified.

    I’m starting to think Fury is overrated, I am mean who has he really beat? An aged Klitschko? Klitschko was what? 40 when they fought and I know he gave AJ issues but Fury runs like mad and against a 40 year old it was basically a cake walk.

    His best performance was against Wilder. Was it class or did Wilder just have a bad night? He nearly decapitated Fury in the first fight and he was down for something like 14 real seconds.

    Oddly enough Fury has never defended the title once he has won it yet. Something always seems to get in the way. Fury went missing for 3 years with mental health/substance misuse issues whilst AJ cleared up.

    AJ did not unify against Wilder to become undisputed and Fury snuck in to win but because of various reasons still not defended the title successfully.
