Tyson Fury’s eagerly-anticipated trilogy fight against Deontay Wilder had been rescheduled for October 9.

Fury was due to defend his heavyweight world title against teh American on July 24, but after the Brit tested positive for coronavirus the bout has had to be postponed.

Fury said: “I want nothing more than to smash the ‘Big Dosser’ on July 24, but I guess the beating will have to wait. Make no mistake, I will be back and better than ever. We will fight Oct, 9 and I will knock him spark out.”

Fury first fought Wilder, 35, in 2018, when their clash ended in a controversial draw, and took the WBC title from him in a rematch in February 2020 with a seventh-round stoppage.

Fury, 32, had been set to face fellow Briton Anthony Joshua in Saudi Arabia in August in a world heavyweight unification title fight, but an American arbitrator ordered Fury to fight Wilder again before Sept. 15.
