On October 9, the boxing fans will get to witness two of the best heavyweights in the world go up against each other. Deontay Wilder and Tyson Fury will lock horns in a trilogy war on the aforementioned date and will look to end their rivalry on a high.
Earlier, this fight was set to materialize on July 24, but as the Brit and his team members tested positive for Covid-19, this bout eventually had to be pushed ahead. As a result, Wilder had to wait just a little longer to get the match he desired the most.
Just weeks away from the WBC fight, Wilder revealed what will happen if Fury withdraws from this fight. Speaking to 78 Sports TV, he said, “It’s up to him. Whatever Big Mama want to do, that’s up to him.”
“At this point in time, he don’t have no options and I’m satisfied, whatever he do, if you fight, then hey, let’s get it on, run for the fans, I’m ready to whoop that a**. But if you don’t then hey, too bad for him and good for me. Pay me and I still fight for affordability regardless.”
Despite all the setbacks, the fight is imminent and October 9 will be the D-day for Tyson Fury and ‘The Bronze Bomber’ Deontay Wilder to let their fists do the talking.
