Heavyweight boxing champion Tyson Fury has been ruled to rematch Deontay Wilder in September, so he may have to drop the Anthony Joshua fight.
According to the ESPN, Wilder, the former WBC heavyweight champion, met with Daniel Weinstein – who holds the jurisdiction over the terms of the fight against Fury – to make a rematch request. On May 17, Mr. Weinstein decided in Wilder’s favor, when he asked Fury to have a third fight with the American boxer before September 15.
Previously, the two sides had a rematch agreement in the contract. Fury drew Wilder in 2018, before winning by technical knockout in the seventh round of the rematch in February 2020. Losing this fight, Wilder has the right to ask Fury to make a rematch immediately after, according to the signed contract. However, the 35-year-old American boxer did not activate this clause because of a shoulder injury and concern about the impact of Covid-19.
Meanwhile, Fury’s side said that the contract expired at the end of last year and arbitrarily searched for a new opponent. In March, Fury and Anthony Joshua signed a contract to unite all four of the most prestigious heavyweight titles, including the WBA, IBF, WBO and WBC heavyweight titles.
According to journalist Gareth A Davies, a boxing expert, the contract between Fury and Wilder has a special clause worth $8 million. If Fury accepts to pay this amount to Wilder, the third fight will be canceled, or moved to another date by mutual agreement.
However, this possibility is not high, because Fury has confirmed that he will rematch Wilder, instead of paying to cancel the contract.
“Wilder has a clause asking for a rematch. Some newspapers reported that, Wilder wants $13 million to cancel the match. But I won’t pay, I’d rather knock him out again. Even 2 million , I don’t pay either. I’m ready to fight for the third time with Wilder,” Fury said iFL TV in May 2020.
