Tyson Fury has said that ‘enough is enough’ and confirmed that his third fight against Deontay Wilder has been abandoned, MySportDab reports.
The proposed December fight has now been scrapped, which makes way for a blockbuster heavyweight fight against Anthony Joshua.
Fury has now said that while he was ‘ready’ for a third fight against Wilder, he was unwilling to be wait forever.
‘I was looking ahead to crushing Wilder again. A quick fight,’ Fury said to The Athletic.
‘But Wilder and his team has continued messing around with the bout date. They are not ready to fight me again.
‘They know how it would end for Wilder. The world also know how it ends: with Wilder down again.
‘Then they asked me about December. I agreed for December 19th. Then they asked to change the date again until next year.
‘I’ve continued training for a long time. I’m absolutely ready. When they tried to move it again from December 19 and till next year, enough is enough. I’ve now moved on.’
The end of their planned trilogy fight has moved up the heavyweight division plans.
Fury will now defend his WBC belt before December.
Meanwhile, Anthony Joshua has to defend his WBA, IBF and WBO titles against Kubrat Pulev on December 12th.
Anthony Joshua’s promoter, Eddie Hearn confirmed some weeks back that Joshua and Fury have agreed a two-fight contract in 2021.
‘We had some success during the lockdown for the fight between AJ and Tyson Fury for 2021,’ he said.
‘Both agreed for 2021, two fights, no doubt you’ll disturb me for the tickets! It’s a massive fight, the most anticipated undisputed heavyweight championship of the world.’
The Anthony Joshua vs Tyson Fury fight is being planned to take place at the Wembley Stadium.
