Tyson Fury-Deontay Wilder fight officially postponed after positive COVID-19 test
Well, fans are going to have to wait a bit longer for the next episode of Tyson Fury vs Deontay Wilder. After earlier reports of the fight being in jeopardy due to a COVID-19 outbreak, it has now officially been postponed after Fury was one of the people who tested positive for the virus.
BREAKING: Per source, Tyson Fury was one of the people in his camp who tested positive for Covid-19 and the fight with Wilder is postponed. New date TBA. I’ve been told Fury got one vaccine dose but never got the 2nd. At least 3 others in camp also positive. #boxing #FuryWilder3

With the fight originally scheduled for July 24 at T-Mobile Arena, it seemed highly unlikely that they would be able to go through with it. Now, especially after Fury is one of the positive tests, it makes sense to postpone the fight, and nobody is quite sure when they will end up facing off, although hopefully it will be in September at the latest.
The trilogy fight– which has been much anticipated and widely discussed in the circles of the sport– will now be put on hold for at least a month as the situation clears itself.
The report said that as many as 10 from Fury’s camp tested positive and it brought down a trickle effect of frustration as the two fighters will hold off once again on the third fight of the series.
Stay tuned for more details regarding Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder Part 3, including the rescheduled date for the fight.
