Currently, British Boxing fans are looking forward to day by day unifying the heavyweight championships between Tyson Fury and Anthony Joshua. Because after the era of Lennox Lewis, no boxer from the misty island nation has unified the prestigious heavy belts.
However, the biggest obstacle currently is the rematch rules between Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder. Accordingly, after Fury won the rematch in February, Wilder reserves the right to request a second rematch immediately.
In recent days, there has been information that Deontay Wilder is ready to give way so Fury has a chance to unify the belt with Joshua in 2020. In return, the “Gypsy King” Fury must pay a hefty amount (step-aside money) is 10 million dollars, a number of “hands-on” is not small.
Deontay Wilder asked for $ 10 million to stop rematching against Tyson Fury, but he wanted to beat the American boxer again.
Tyson Fury rejected Deontay Wilder’s request
“Wilder has a rematch clause. Some reports say he asked for $ 10 million to step aside. However, I won’t pay Wilder, I’d rather beat him again,” Tyson Fury said.
Wilder will stop rematching so that Fury and Anthony Joshua can fight each other if he gets $ 10 million. American boxers conjointly want to be signed to fight the winner of the match between two British boxers. If those conditions were met, Wilder would cancel the terms of a rematch against Fury.
It took more than a year for Fury and Wilder to get a rematch but according to Arum, the third match is expected to take place on July 18, just a few days before the 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games start.
Looking back at previous historical matches
On February 22, Wilder and Fury competed for the WBC heavyweight belt after two invincible opponents lost their first match in 2018.
After losing the game, “Metal Strike” activated the terms of the rematch according to their contractual commitments.
“I will defeat Wilder a second time. Hopefully, the rematch will take place by the end of this year. Then, by 2021, the biggest fight in the history of heavy boxing between me and Joshua will take place. They will fight with all titles, “the British boxer added.
The fact that Wilder activated the rematch clause after his defeat against Fury received many objections. Fans are always looking forward to finding the absolute champion between Fury and Joshua. The two British boxers now keep all of the titles of heavy boxing.
Tyson Fury: “Wilder has just the right punch and that’s all”. Tyson Fury believes he knows what Deontay Wilder has and is more confident in the rematch.
As planned, the third rematch between Wilder and Fury will occur on July 18. The match has not yet taken place but many believe Fury will once again defeat Wilder to get the all-English match of his dream, the match of world heavyweight boxing with Anthony Joshua at the end of the year.
“If Joshua defeated Pulev and Fury defeated Wilder, why not make a Joshua – Fury fight at the end of the year?”, Arum said.
