TYSON FURY’S trilogy fight against Deontay Wilder has been scheduled for December 19 this year in Las Vegas.
The Gypsy King is contracted to defend the WBC belt he took from the Bronze Bomber back in February before he can face his mandatory challenger Dillian Whyte or stage an undisputed title fight with Anthony Joshua.
Top Rank executive Brad Jacobs revealed that the third fight is being targeted for December with locations “all over the world” still in the running.
He told Sky Sports: “We are focusing on December 19 and are hoping that, by then, we are back to a nearly normal situation.
“That may be a 50 per cent capacity.
“We are looking all over the world, at this point, for the best location for this event. That will be narrowed down and we’ll see where it takes us.”
