Marc Raimondi recently took it to Twitter and wrote, “Wilder vs. Fury officials Referee: Mike Ortega ($10,000 pay) Judges: Tim Cheatham, Dave Moretti, Patricia Morse Jarman ($8,000)”

With that tweet, he even revealed the pay for a couple of match officials.

Fury and Wilder are eager to get their hands on each other to end their trilogy and feud. Their first contest took place in 2018. That 12-round fight was no less than an action-packed thriller that ended in a tragic draw. Both the technicians had their fair and share of moments inside the ring.

To put a full stop to their unfinished business, Fury and Wilder again collided last year in February. This time, it was all about ‘The Gypsy King’ annihilating the Alabama native to claim a career-defining win. Now, the pair will now look forward to rolling out a show worth the buzz and settle on one true winner.
