Deontay Wilder’s team deny claims third Tyson Fury fight has been abandoned

Third Fury fight will be held in December, says Wilder’s co-manager Shelly Finkel

Deontay Wilder’s team have denied a media report that a third WBC heavyweight title fight against Tyson Fury has been abandoned.

The American heavyweight lost his WBC belt to Fury in February following a seventh-round stoppage loss in Las Vegas, but Wilder is expected to receive a third fight, but a date and venue is yet to be arranged.

Recent claims Wilder no longer has a contractual clause for the trilogy clash, paving the way for Fury to fight Anthony Joshua instead, have been denied by the Alabama man’s co-manager Shelly Finkel.
