Tyson Fury’s trilogy fight with Deontay Wilder is finally set to go ahead tonight at the second time of asking. The bout had originally been scheduled for July but was postponed after Fury had contracted COVID-19.
Fury has been installed as favourite for the head-to-head as Wilder looks to win back his WBC belt.
The duo met for the first time in December 2018, with that fight ending in a controversial draw. But the second encounter was far less competitive as Fury dominated from start to finish.
The Briton knocked his opponent down twice before the fight was halted in the seventh round when the Wilder corner threw in the towel.
The trilogy bout had been thrown into doubt after Fury had instead agreed to go glove-to-glove with Anthony Joshua.
That all-British affair had been hotly-anticipated and had been described by Joshua’s promoter Eddie Hearn as a ‘done deal.’
But it was canned after Wilder took legal action to ensure his third match-up with Fury went ahead.
And following Joshua’s defeat to Oleksandr Usyk there are now doubts that Fury will ever face his fellow Briton.
Tonight’s fight is set to be an exhilarating encounter, with the ring walks expected between 4am and 5am on Sunday morning.
“It’s no secret what I’m gonna do,” Fury told talkSPORT ahead of the fight. “I’m just gonna go out there and blitz him.
“There’s gonna be no stopping me on the night. The only thing that’s gonna stop me is getting knocked spark out.

“But apart from that, I’m gonna annihilate him. That’s all I’m thinking about. I’m literally gonna set about him.
“The only thing he’s got to stop me is the knockout punch, but apart from that, he ain’t stopping me from setting about him.
“And we all know that I can get up from his punches because I’ve done it twice before. He doesn’t have anything that I’m scared of.”
