Tyson Fury vs Deontay Wilder’s third fight is nearly upon us, with millions of people likely to watch the huge trilogy clash between two of the world’s finest heavyweight’s for the WBC title.
Fury was due to face Anthony Joshua for the undisputed heavyweight crown this summer in Saudi Arabia, but the biggest bout in British boxing history collapsed when a judge in the US ruled Wilder had the contractual right to a third contest with the ‘Gypsy King’.
Joshua’s defeat to Oleksandr Usyk also looks to have put paid to the all-British clash for the time being, with AJ now seeking a rematch against the Ukrainian.
Fury and Wilder fought to a disputed draw in their first bout back in 2018, but Fury dominated the rematch from the outset and stopped the American in the seventh round to inflict Wilder’s first career loss. Now bring on Round Three on October 9.

WHO IS TRAINING FURY?
Tyson Fury will be trained, once again, by SugarHill Steward, who took his corner for the second Wilder fight.
Fury used to be trained by Ben Davison, who was in charge for the very first Wilder bout, but was replaced by Steward a year later.
Steward instantly implemented his ‘Kronk style’ of training, one in which where boxers who fight out of the Kronk Gym in Detroit, Michigan, seek to put pressure on their opponents to force a knockout.
The style of fighting was first introduced by legendary trainer Emanuel Steward, SugarHill’s late uncle.
Fury predicted that with SugarHill in his corner, he would bring the fight to Wilder and take him out during their second fight, a prediction not many believed in.
Fury vs Wilder 3 will take place at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada, making it the third different venue in pair’s three fights.
Fury vs Wilder 1 took place at Staples Center in Los Angeles back in December 2018.
And while their second happened in Las Vegas, the MGM Grand Garden Arena was the venue.
But now the T-Mobile Arena, which has hosted huge fights such as Floyd Mayweather vs Conor McGregor, Canelo Alvarez vs Gennady Golovkin and numerous big UFC events, will play host for their third clash.
Unbeaten Fury goes into the fight as the favourite with odds of 2/7.
You can get 5/2 on dangerous Wilder to avenge his only loss.
And a draw – which was the result of their first fight remember – is currently set at 25/1.

FURY VS WILDER 2 – WHAT HAPPENED?
Fury vs Wilder 2 took place in Las Vegas on February 20, 2020 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena.
The second fight turned out to be a more one-sided affair, with Fury shocking the boxing world to stop Wilder in the seventh round of their Las Vegas clash.
Fury came into the fight with a new trainer in SugarHill Steward, after utilising Ben Davison in his corner for the first bout.
Steward and Fury adopted an offensive game plan and came forward at Wilder throughout the fight, knocking him down in rounds three and five.
Wilder’s assistant trainer Mark Breland eventually threw in the towel at the midway point of the seventh round, making Fury the WBC and Ring Magazine heavyweight champion.
But this weekend, Wilder will finally get his chance at vengeance.
Deontay Wilder says calmness is key to the storm, ahead of his career-defining fight with Tyson Fury tonight.
“The weight just came on,” said Wilder.
“I’m bench pressing a little over 350[lbs], so whatever his weight comes in, I can lay on my back and lift him.
“It won’t be none of that rushing me and putting all his weight on me, and different things like that. But most of all, we just want to have fun.
Calmness is the key to the storm.
“I know that when I’m not calm, my mind is cloudy, so when your mind is cloudy it allows you to make bad decisions
