Tyson Fury Vs Deontay Wilder Will Be A Trilogy

Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder have already confirmed they will fight again, once they get past their next opponents, and now Bob Arum has revealed that the pair will go at it a third time.

Just six months ago Deontay Wilder and Tyson Fury reignited interest into boxing's heavyweight division with their classic fight that ended in a controversial draw after the Brit was knocked down twice.

Things got a little rocky when the pairs next fights were not against each other, or Anthony Joshua, and then Wilder announced his second fight after Fury would be a Luis Ortiz rematch.

Following the second Ortiz fight though Fury will get his second chance at Wilder in 2020 and now Bob Arum has revealed there's a clause for third fight.

Speaking to World Boxing News the Top Rank boss was asked if there would be a third fight, with Arum saying, "Yes, I can assure you of yes. There are a lot of good heavyweights who have had trilogies. This would be a trilogy."

Arum, who represents Fury, also revealed that terms for the third fighthave already been agreed, adding, "The percentages will change, as in the winner would get more on that third fight, than the loser. It's all based on who wins the second fight."

Both men are currently undefeated but they'll both be even more wary of that still being the case when they meet for the second time following Anthony Joshua's shock defeat last weekend.

Joshua put his three versions of the world heavyweight title on the line against Andy Ruiz Jr in New York last Saturday and was expected to win but the Mexican caused one of heavyweight boxing's greatest upsets.

The 29 year old, who only replaced Jarrell Miller six weeks before the fight, became the first Mexican heavyweight champion with a seventh round stoppage against the formerly undefeated Joshua.

On the second fight with Wilder, Arum claimed Fury will not look past his opponent next week, German Tom Schwarz, saying, "No jumping. Anything can happen to Fury, although I don't think it will, that happened to Anthony Joshua."

If Fury and Wilder can produce two more fights even half as entertaining than the first then we could be in for an excellent 18 months of heavyweight boxing.
