Recently, Queensberry Promotions supremo, Frank Warren was in an interaction with iFL TV. Here, he gave his notions about the entire rigmarole that took place for Wilder vs Fury 3.

Well, you know my reaction is like everybody. We’re all disappointed but you know, they’re the times we live in. You know he caught covid, and that’s it so he couldn’t fight. That’s the end of the story. So it doesn’t matter what I think or anybody thinks.

“We all are disappointed, but it just has to be rescheduled. It’s been rescheduled for October and it’ll take place then,” he said.

Earlier, ‘The Gypsy King’ was all set to confront his fellow compatriot, Anthony Joshua, for all the heavyweight titles on the line. But the ex-WBC heavyweight champ, Wilder had a powerful urge to fight Fury. As a result, he proceeded legally, and the arbitrator ruled the decision in his favor.

Alongside Wilder, the entire boxing fraternity was on its toes to see this trilogy coming to life on July 24. But the ongoing pandemic came in like a dark cloud for this matchup.

However, ‘The Gypsy King’ has finally recovered, and he is all set to kick off his training camps once again.
