Tyson Fury has broken his silence on the dramatic news that the arbitration court ruled in Deontay Wilder’s favour to force through a third fight with the ‘Gypsy King’. Fury and Anthony Joshua have long been tipped for a heavyweight unification bout to take place this year with contracts even being signed earlier this year on a two-fight deal.
Eddie Hearn has been outspoken on the matter, stating on numerous occasions that he is confident of the fight going ahead as planned.
And Fury even announced at the end of last week in a video on social media that a date had been set for August 14th in Saudi Arabia.
But that fight now looks in serious jeopardy after the Daily Star reported Fury has been ordered to fight Wilder for a third time before any bout with Joshua takes place.
