There’s no way to know for sure what’s behind the decision to postpone the third Tyson Fury-Deontay Wilder fight, but a few hints have emerged regarding the reason for the postponement. First, a pandemic and COVID-19 outbreak have both been factors in the fight’s postponement. But, in the meantime, the fight promoters are crafting an official statement with refund information.

Wilder’s camp, meanwhile, reported that Fury’s teammates had tested positive for the same drug, meaning he will have to wait a bit longer to get his revenge.

Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder’s fight is in danger of being postponed after an outbreak of COVID-19 was discovered in his training camp, ESPN reported. A top Rank spokesman confirmed that “unfortunately,” the July 24 bout was being postponed, as the boxer is currently dealing with the illness.

The fighters have not yet been notified of the reason behind the postponement. Wilder’s camp, on the other hand, has stated that he’s unable to comment.
Despite the adversity, it’s important to note that the fighters weighed in at career-high weights.

The rematch is scheduled because Anthony Joshua activated his rematch clause in his bout against the Ukrainian.
