WBC Champion Fury finally looked set to take on Anthony Joshua in Saudi Arabia this year, but after Wilder's team won an arbitration hearing, the American waived his rights to a third fight against The Gypsy King.
The pair have clashed twice already in two exciting bouts, with the first giving boxing fans one of the greatest moments in the sport's history as Fury rose from the canvas to battle his way back to a controversial draw.
A second fight was created following the controversy, but Fury made no mistake of letting the encounter go to the scorecards with a flawless display to win by seventh-round KO.
Fury signed less than seven days since he appeared on social media stating he had agreed to face Joshua in August.
But Wilder refused to take any money in order to step aside and let Fury pursue the Joshua fight.
Joshua is now expected to defend his IBF, WBA and WBO belts against Ukraine's Oleksandr Usyk in August, with a fight with Fury mooted should both still hold their world titles later this year.
Until then, Fury and Wilder will meet again this summer and we have everything you need to know ahead of the third fight.
The fight is scheduled to take place on Saturday, July 24 2021 and many boxing fans across the globe will be tuning in to see if Wilder can avenge his defeat from last time out.
