Frank Warren Confirms Tyson Fury Vs Deontay Wilder III 'Penciled In' For July

Frank Warren Confirms Tyson Fury Vs Deontay Wilder III 'Penciled In' For July

Tyson Fury's promoter Frank Warren has revealed that the trilogy fight with Deontay Wilder is already 'penciled in' for a July date and it probably won't be in the UK.

Despite Fury absolutely dominating from first bell to last in Saturday's seventh round stoppage win against Wilder, to capture the WBC heavyweight world title, it looks like the American will invoke his rematch clause.

Whoever lost had 30 days after the second fight to make the trilogy a reality. Warren, who runs Queensbury Promotions, has said that the third fight is likely to take place in July. "Deontay has not yet officially invoked the rematch clause but made his intentions very clear and will do so shortly, there's no doubt about that," the 68-year-old wrote in his talkSPORT column.

"If we're gonna do it, I'd like to do it over here in the UK, but at the moment it's pencilled in for Vegas in July. Tyson's got his eye on the new 65-000 capacity Allegiant Stadium."

The Allegiant Stadium is the new home of the Las Vegas Raiders, with the franchise moving to Nevada in time for this year, and could hold up to 72,000 people for boxing.

Whilst many UK fans will be clamouring for the to happen on British soil and a homecoming for Fury it's unlikely because of the money involved abroad.

In the US the pay-per-view figures are likely to be higher if it's a night fight over there and with Americans spending up to $100 on fights.

Speaking about the possibility of an all British unification fight between Fury and Anthony Joshua, who holds the other three belts, Warren added, "Of course we want to make that fight, but both have contractual commitments and fights that have got to be dealt with. They've got to satisfy the Pulev mandatory.

"We want to get the fight on, the fight will be on a 50/50 basis and it's as simple as that. No-one's gonna duck it. Anthony Joshua needs Tyson, he's in his slipstream now, he needs him.

"It's Fury vs Joshua, not Joshua vs Fury. Joshua's got Tyson's belts that he vacated. Tyson's the main man, but egos have got to go out the window."

Even that wouldn't necessarily be a fight on home soil for the two men from England with the Queensbury Promotions head spotted talking to Prince Khalid.

Khalid was a major part of taking the AJ vs Andy Ruiz Jr rematch to Saudi Arabia and there are now rumours that Fury could fight the 2012 Olympic champion in the Middle East.

Do you think Fury and AJ will fight in 2020?
