The struggle between Fury and Wilder started after the governing body ruled that Fury had to face Wilder before entering the long-awaited potential reunification round between Fury and fellow British Anthony Joshua.
Wilder lost the WBC heavyweight title to Fury in 2020, and he is currently looking for his first victory over Fury after his draw in 2018 and the loss of Tseung Kwan O in 2020.
The game may be postponed to September, which may have a serious impact on the rest of the heavyweight division, including a potential showdown between Ferry or Wilder and Joshua.
Top Rank’s Bob Arum (Bob Arum) said that he will not pay any indirect costs to Wilder, but chooses to compete with his boxer and Wilder in a trilogy in July. Arum stated that his goal is to hold a heavyweight united battle between Fury and Joshua at the end of 2021.
