Wilder and Fury were initially scheduled to complete their trilogy of fights in July, but the hotly anticipated rematch was postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic.

However, KO artist Wilder has now revealed that he has been unable to train for their third bout due to injuries he sustained in the February mega-fight.

"Recovery [is] going well, I'm in therapy, I ended up injuring it during my last fight, somewhere up in there," Wilder told PBC Podcast.
