Tyson Fury confirmed he has signed a contract to face Deontay Wilder for a third time on July 24 and sent a warning to the Bronze Bomber that he will knock him out in one round.
Sportsmail reported that the Gypsy King was set to face the American on July 24 after his team won an arbitration hearing stating he had a right to a third fight.
Fury, who beat Wilder to become WBC champion in February 2020, had been set to face Anthony Joshua in Saudi Arabai in August but will now first have to get past Wilder once again.
By way of a curtain raiser for Josh Taylor’s victory in his historic bid to become the undisputed four-belt light-welterweight champion, Fury told the 1,000 fans in attendance and the American TV audience: ‘I will knock out Wilder on July 24 in this town and I’ll knock out Anthony Joshua as soon as he likes after that.’
The Brit also confirmed he had signed on the dotted line in a video posted on Twitter by Top Rank Boxing.
In the video, Fury said: ‘Wilder three fight because Wilder’s a p****, excuse-maker and a s***house. Shall we do it and put him out of his misery?
