Heavyweight unification bout with Anthony Joshua in doubt as court orders Tyson Fury v Deontay Wilder III

A US court has ordered that Tyson Fury fight Deontay Wilder again, which threatens to complicate the proposed heavyweight title unification fight in Saudi Arabia, according to the BBC.

Wilder was initially supposed to get his third bite at the Tyson Fury cherry, but amidst the coronavirus pandemic, Fury decided to step away from the American fighter and look elsewhere.

All the talk in recent weeks and months has been in regards to Fury vs Anthony Joshua, a British boxing mega-fight which would see the heavyweight division unified.

As per the BBC, there is now doubts as to whether that can take place in Saudi Arabia later this year, as was initially proposed.

Could Anthony Joshua v Tyson Fury be OFF?

Ultimately, this will come down to whether Wilder’s camp are actually interested in another fight with Fury or are just looking for a healthy settlement.

Oftentimes, it’s the latter, so let’s wait and see.
