Fury trolls Wilder following judge’s arbitration ruling

Tyson Fury has taken another shot at Deontay Wilder after a court of arbitration ruled they must fight later this year.

For weeks now fans have been eagerly awaiting an official announcement regarding Fury’s superfight against Anthony Joshua. From the proposed date of August 14 to the rumoured location of Saudi Arabia, the pieces were finally falling into place.

Fury unleashes on Wilder

Alas, things are never that simple in boxing, and money talks more often than not.

The new ruling, made by a court in the United States, has declared that Tyson Fury must fight Wilder for a third time due to a clause in a previous contract.

In the wake of the news being announced, Fury took to social media to remind fans of the many, infamous excuses Wilder made after their second fight.

In that second bout, Fury followed up on their controversial draw by stopping Wilder in the seventh round.

Ever since then the logical next step has been for Fury and Joshua to collide in a huge unification showdown this summer. Unfortunately, those plans appear to have been put on ice.

Many of us will never know for sure whether or not Deontay Wilder was ‘compromised’ during the Fury rematch – and the majority don’t really care.

The big headline has, for a while, been Fury and Joshua putting on the biggest fight in British boxing history. At this point, the cloud of uncertainty that has fallen on the proposal won’t be making Wilder any new fans, particularly on the UK’s shores.

If the two men end up fighting one another and this ruling is upheld, the contest will need to be booked to take place before September 15.
