The third match between the two giants – Fury stands 6’9” while Wilder is 6’7” – will conclude one of boxing’s most storied heavyweight trilogies. It follows a controversial draw in December 2018 that saw Fury rise from a pair of knockdowns, and the dramatic February 2020 rematch, where Fury flipped the script and knocked out Wilder in the seventh round.

Before the main event, three other heavyweight bouts will be aired: a battle of unbeatens in Efe “The One and Only” Ajagba versus Frank “The Cuban Flash” Sanchez, a hotly anticipated rematch between Robert “The Nordic Nightmare” Helenius and Adam “Babyface” Kownacki, and rising American superstar Jared “The Real Big Baby” Anderson against fellow unbeaten Vladimir Tereshkin.

The two-bout undercard broadcast starts at 7 p.m. ET /4 p.m. PT on ESPN2, ESPN+, ESPN Deportes, FS1 and Fox Deportes.

Preliminary fights will stream live on the ESPN App and the FOX Sports App at 4:30 p.m. ET/1:30 p.m. PT.

The heavyweight trilogy showdown between WBC and lineal world champion Tyson “The Gypsy King” Fury and former world champion Deontay “The Bronze Bomber” Wilder — scheduled for Saturday, July 24 at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas – has been postponed due to Fury’s positive COVID-19 diagnosis.

The two goliaths will now meet Saturday, Oct. 9 at T-Mobile Arena, and live on ESPN+ PPV and FOX Sports PPV, resuming one of the great rivalries in the division’s storied history.

Tickets purchased for July 24 will be honored for the rescheduled date.

“I wanted nothing more than to smash the ‘Big Dosser’ on July 24, but I guess the beating will have to wait,” Fury said. “Make no mistake, I will be back and better than ever. We will fight Oct. 9, and I will knock him spark out!”

“This is what we went to arbitration for,” said Shelly Finkel, Wilder’s manager. “He just wanted what was owed to him. He remains ready to reclaim his world title on Oct. 9.’’

FURY V WILDER: THE TRILOGY LIVE AND EXCLUSIVE ON BT SPORT BOX OFFICE

Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder will finally put their long running feud to bed as they face off in Las Vegas on Saturday 9 October for the third and final time. All the action, including the undercard, will be broadcast live on BT Sport Box Office.

With October 9th now confirmed for what is set to be the biggest heavyweight clash of the year, the WBC and The Ring heavyweight titles on the line and a potential fight with Anthony Joshua waiting, both fighters will be looking to make light work of their opponent.

Fury and Wilder fought in the much-anticipated first bout in 2018, with Wilder’s fearsome punch power in full swing as he memorably floored Fury in the 12th round, before the British fighter miraculously beat the count. The fight ended in a draw that night, but the second battle in 2020 was a one-sided affair with Fury outclassing Wilder, stopping him in the 7th round. With plenty at stake, the third and final installment is set to be an absolute classic between two high class Heavyweights.
