The gate played a big factor in Tyson Fury vs Deontay Wilder III

Fan attendance and, hence, the gate, have been a big financial factor in the booking of Fury-Wilder III. Fury’s UK-based promoter Frank Warren had told the Daily Mail back in September 2020 that the trilogy fight would only take place if money from the gate was on the table.

Fury was initially slated to face Anthony Joshua on August 14 in Saudi Arabia. However, per the court’s ruling, ‘The Gypsy King’ is contractually bound to face ‘The Bronze Bomber’ in a rematch before September 15, 2021. Hence, Top Rank CEO Bob Arum moved quickly to book Fury-Wilder III. “It’s better to get rid of him and go about our business. We can make the Fury-Joshua fight for November or December,” he said.
