However, the exact date of the event is still not final.

Tyson Fury vs Deontay Wilder 3 is happening!

If not for COVID-19, the blockbuster trilogy would have happened by now. However, the fight is still not off the charts. It is much more intense now.

After a controversial draw in the original contest, the rematch was full of surprises. That said, Tyson Fury manhandled his American rival throughout the contest, paying no respect to Wilder’s power.

For the first time in his career, Deontay Wilder suffered two early knockdowns in a fight. While he barely offered anything in response, Fury unloaded in round number seven to grab the WBC heavyweight strap.

It was Wilder’s first loss of his professional career, and the trilogy contest will also put a lot on the line for him. Apart from the title, it is also about the ‘Bronze Bomber’s’ heavyweight dominance. Another loss against Fury can be detrimental to his legacy.

If everything goes per plan, Fury vs Wilder 3 will happen in December. And if Fury wins, he can either get into the unification mix against Anthony Joshua or venture in the WWE to face Drew McIntyre.

However, nothing can be validated until and unless Fury vs Wilder 3 takes place.
