Promoter Bob Arum is lining up Fury vs. Wilder III for July 18 back at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, the same location that hosted the rematch on February 22, per ESPN.

Fury stopped Wilder in the seventh round to claim the WBC heavyweight world title in the highly-anticipated rematch.

Wilder's co-trainer Mark Breland threw in the towel to halt the championship contest. 'The Bronze Bomber' was furious with the decision but he's decided not to sack Breland from his corner.

"I will be back. We will hold our heads up high. Your king is in great spirit. We will rise like a phoenix from the ashes and regain the title. I'll see you in a few months, for the war has just begun. All my love to all my people."
