Earlier, this fight was set to materialize on July 24, but as the Brit and his team members tested positive for Covid-19, this bout eventually had to be pushed ahead. As a result, Wilder had to wait just a little longer to get the match he desired the most.

Just weeks away from the WBC fight, Wilder revealed what will happen if Fury withdraws from this fight. Speaking to 78 Sports TV, he said, “It’s up to him. Whatever Big Mama want to do, that’s up to him.”

Despite all the setbacks, the fight is imminent and October 9 will be the D-day for Tyson Fury and ‘The Bronze Bomber’ Deontay Wilder to let their fists do the talking.
