The trilogy became a reality after many speculations and back and forth involving the teams associated with two superstar pugilists. From his previous target, an undisputed heavyweight championship clash against unified champion Anthony Joshua, Fury had to make his focus right back on former rival Wilder following the ‘Bronze Bomber’ won the arbitration case for the trilogy bout.

The fight ended up being originally targeted on 24th July at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. Unfortunately, after Fury had tested positive for COVID-19 on the heels of refusing to take the second dosage of the vaccine, the fight had gone into uncertain territories.

At the same time, some think that the postponement was not a result of of Fury contracting the virus, something that believed to be always a stunt by many, as he was seen in a casino during his recovery. and that the postponement is due to the possible better PPV buys in October.

Nonetheless, ever since the date and place have been determined for the trilogy, Fury has been eager to take on ‘Big Dosser’ Wilder.
