Tyson Fury vs Deontay Wilder trilogy decision expected next week

A decision on whether Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder will have a trilogy fight is expected next week, Frank Warren has revealed.

Fury decided to walk away from a third fight with his rival after their immediate rematch clause expired last month.

Wilder is desperate to get his shot at redemption against the Gypsy King however, and has initiated a mediation with a retired judge set to review his case.

Fury’s promoter Warren said the outcome of the dispute should be resolved by next week with the Gypsy King desperate to return to the ring.

He told BT Sport Boxing: “I think there will be next week as to what’s going on. Next week, we’ll know what the position is.

“He’s been training very, very hard, and he just wants to get back in the ring, and we’re trying hard to make that happen.”

A trilogy bout between the pair was set to go ahead in Las Vegas back in July, but this never came to fruition as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic.

Warren said: ‘Unfortunately, because of the Covid and the finances for that particular fight, it wasn’t to be.

‘We tried to make it again, and we tried to work on it, but it expired. I think it’s well known now that there’s a hearing going on.
