Tyson Fury’s camp is jeopardising the World Boxing Council heavyweight champion’s trilogy fight against Deontay Wilder on July 24 due to the COVID-19 outbreak, according to a report on Thursday.
The US sports broadcaster, which has joint pay-per-view rights to the bout with Fox, said no official determination had yet been made but cited unnamed sources in saying the fight would “inevitably” be postponed.
Fury has promised to deliver a swift victory over America’s Wilder in the fight at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.
BREAKING: Per source, Tyson Fury was one of the people in his camp who tested positive for Covid-19 and the fight with Wilder is postponed. New date TBA. I’ve been told Fury got one vaccine dose but never got the 2nd. At least 3 others in camp also positive. #boxing #FuryWilder3
