Anthony Joshua vs. Tyson Fury is in serious doubt after Deontay Wilder won his arbitration case for a trilogy bout.

Wilder, who surrendered his WBC world heavyweight title last year, was contracted to rematch Fury until the proposed third fight was postponed due to COVID-19.

Team Fury claimed the rematch clause in the contract expired, paving the way for an undisputed clash with Joshua.

An all-British showdown was confirmed by the 'Gypsy King' who announced it for August 14 in Saudi Arabia.

However, Joshua vs. Fury could now be called off after the legal dispute went in favour of Wilder, with the ruling stating that they must face each other by September 15, 2021.

Fury vs. Wilder 3 was supposed to take place in July 2020 before the pandemic scrapped the contest.

The unbeaten Brit hasn't fought since dethroning 'The Bronze Bomber' and it appears a third meeting between them could now be on deck next.

Mike Coppinger of The Athletic weighed in, suggesting Joshua vs. Fury can still happen on August 14 - but the Wilder ruling has now muddied the matter and must be resolved.

A step aside fee for the previously-unbeaten American has been mooted in the past.

Wilder also hasn't fought since their Las Vegas showdown in February 2020.

Will Joshua vs. Fury take place this summer? Stay tuned.
