Coronavirus: Fury-Wilder trilogy could be pushed back to October - Arum

Tyson Fury slams a right to the head of US boxer Deontay Wilder

The third world boxing heavyweight title match between Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder is set to postponed until October due to the coronavirus pandemic.

While the pandemic is still getting worse by the day the United States had almost 50,000 confirmed cases of the coronavirus as of Tuesday afternoon, according to The New York Times and almost all of Las Vegas shut down, Arum isnt sure when the fight can actually take place.

The planned date for the bout was July 18, likely back in Las Vegas, but as the COVID-19 outbreak continues to grow exponentially in the United States, even that date was far from safe.

"We don't even know if the MGM will be open by then". We couldn't convince them or ourselves. "Where were they going to train for it?" It just didn't make sense.

"So everybody has to take a step back".

'How are you going to sell tickets? "It's absolutely ridiculous to say that the fight starts when the British can't even get there".

Fury always brings heavy support from England if he fights overseas with thousands of fans flocking to the U.S. for the previous two fights with the 'Bronze Bomber'.

It seemed Brady was awaiting an offer - awaiting any sign of interest from New England. Technology is an incredible thing and we are going to try to use that as best we can.

'So everybody has to take a step back. "Boxing is not isolated", Arum said. "It is part of what is happening in the world", said Arum. That means that the unification fight may not be taking place until the summer of 2021 at the very earliest.

The Indian Express is now on Telegram.

Tyson Fury consoles Deontay Wilder after winning their last fight.

"Al and his people are in touch with us all the time on this", the 88-year-old said. "Nobody has ever experienced anything like this before".

Now, we wait to see if Unified Heavyweight Champion Anthony Joshua's scheduled title defense in June against IBF #1 contender Kubrat Pulev will still take place at London's Tottenham Hotspur Stadium or might move to later in the year, as well?

It seems Fury has the Bronze Bomber's number though after the lineal champion also had to settle for a disputable draw in their first fight in December 2018, a contest Whyte also things should have gone Fury's way.
