Tyson Fury v Deontay Wilder rematch may be moved to October

John Gurzinski Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder's third heavyweight meeting has been postponed until October at the earliest

'You could not guarantee the fighters that the event would take place on that date.

But because of the coronavirus, which has already cancelled or postponed all of Arum's boxing shows in March and April, the fight now won't take place until at least October. Moreover, it's possible the fight could be pushed even later in the year, or even to the next, should the coronavirus pandemic cause a longer halt to sporting action across the globe than anticipated.

Wilder called for a rematch but with Las Vegas casinos shut and travel from Europe to the US suspended in an effort to slow the spread of the virus, Arum said there is no way the fight can go forward as scheduled at the MGM Grand. However, any hopes of that happened have been diminished following the outbreak of the Coronavirus, which has impacted all of the major sporting competitions around the world, including Serie A, National Basketball Association and the Olympic Games. You just have to take a step back. "We couldn't convince them or ourselves", Arum told ESPN. "So possibly the fight will be in early October".

'So everybody has to take a step back.

The third battle had been set into motion, when Wilder exercised the rematch clause both fighters had in the contract that the two signed late last summer to set their second fight into motion.

Supreme Court allowed that program to remain in effect last week pending the outcome of a legal challenge. In some cases, migrant families have opted to send children across the US-Mexico border alone.

And Arum confirmed to ESPN that all parties involved in getting the third fight on the table are working through their process. "Nobody has ever experienced anything like this before".

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.

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?

With travel restrictions affecting both the United States and Britain, and Las Vegas' casinos shuttered, Arum said a postponement was the only sensible option.
