Fury Versus Wilder Set For July 24 In Las Vegas
Tyson Fury

World heavyweight champion Tyson Fury came face to face with Deontay Wilder on Tuesday night at the announcement of their trilogy on 24 July in Los Angeles.

Fury boasted: “I’m building my weight up, trying to get up to 300lbs, because I’m looking for a big knockout straight away.”

Wilder thanked his legal team for enforcing this fight. He remained silent and seemed intent on listening to music on his headphones.

There was no shoving and yelling like the previous time.

The first fight saw Wilder put Fury on the canvas but the Briton got up and fought bravely to earn a draw.

In the second fight, Fury came out swinging and comprehensively won the rematch with a knockout.

Earlier in the year, Fury announced he was going to fight Anthony Joshua in Saudi Arabia, but a US court of arbitration ordered the Gypsy King to fight Wilder first.

Since Wilder lost the WBC heavyweight title to Fury he has been running his mouth about underhand tactics he says cost him the fight.

Responding to the claims Fury joked: “Costume was too heavy, Fury’s gloves were loaded, I had weak legs, my water was spiked.

“Fury’s gloves had no padding, had bicep surgery, disloyal trainer, complications in camp, I broke my arm, fight stopped too early, Andre Dirrell’s fault.”

The last time Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder sat at a press conference to debate their fight, the first meaningful blow was landed.
