Is the Fury vs. Wilder 3 Fight Canceled?

Boxing Wilder vs Fury in the match.

Tonight, Tyson Fury is scheduled to take on Deonte Wilder for the world heavyweight championship. This is the third fight between the two boxers, since back in 2018. The second fight, which took place in February 2020, was an excellent event and this one is sure to be too! But since this fight was originally scheduled to take place back in June, you’d be forgiven for thinking it’s canceled or going to be. The delay was because Fury tested positive for COVID-19, but this time around, there’s nothing stopping the event!

Is it canceled? Absolutely not. Is it going to go down in heavyweight history? Yes, it is. If you’re not already aware, the fight is scheduled to take place at 9 p.m. ET at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. Fury vs. Wilder 3 is the main event, which will be the final fight of the night.
