Resolution expected in Tyson Fury – Deontay Wilder arbitration in coming days

Next week, the Tyson Fury vs. Deontay Wilder arbitration arbitrator is reportedly expected to make a ruling on this case. Former WBC heavyweight champion Wilder (42-1-1, 41 KOs) wants his contractual rematch that was part of his fight last year in February.

The arbitrator will decide whether Wilder is owed the third fight that was part of the rematch clause. It’s believed that Fury’s management sees the contract as having expired. The ruling next week is expected to decide if Wilder will get his third fight at some point and whether he’ll be awarded damages.

Not surprisingly, Fury would prefer to move on without taking the risky third fight with Wilder because he’s got a bigger money clash against IBF/WBA/WBO champion Anthony Joshua that could be messed up if he faces ‘The Bronze Bomber.’

With all the money on the line for the Joshua-Fury fights, it’s predictable that something will be worked out to move Wilder out of the way if the arbitrator rules against Fury.

There’s too much money at stake for the Joshua vs. Fury fight to risk it with ‘The Gypsy King’ taking on Wilder and getting knocked out.

If it was a weak opponent with no power and virtually no chance of winning, Fury likely would take the fight in a second.

Fury obviously would have gotten the contractual rematch out of the way last year there than letting it drag on, hoping it would magically go away on its own.

But Wilder isn’t a sure thing win for anyone, particularly for Fury, who he clearly knocked out in their first fight 2018, a match that many boxing fans saw as Tyson being saved by a long count.

It’ll be fun to see how the arbitrator rules and what move Team Fury will make to get Wilder out of the way so they can take the two payday fights against Anthony Joshua.

Wilder may be made to wait until Joshua faces Fury twice, which could be a bad thing for him. Think about it. If Joshua destroys Fury twice in a row by knockout, it’ll be almost pointless for Wilder to face the ‘Gypsy  King.’

The money that a third Wilder-Fury fight would have made while Fury was still unbeaten will be gone, as the boxing world will view him as finished goods, and the match won’t make the big money that it would have.

“Sources: Resolution expected in Tyson Fury-Deontay Wilder arbitration in coming days, potentially by Monday. The dispute surrounds the rematch clause: is Wilder owed a third fight? Former judge Daniel Weinstein will rule. Will Wilder be awarded damages? Will Fury simply move on?” said @MikeCoppinger.

“This goes on, of course, against the backdrop of efforts to finalize Tyson Fury-Anthony Joshua for early August in Saudi Arabia, with Aug. 14 in Riyadh being eyed, per sources.”

  1. Deontay was out maneuvered by superior criminals .
    No one got arrested and Deontay turned over practically all of his evidence .
    These criminals conspired to commit one felony after another through colusión .
    This big easy con job was a billion dollar caper .
    And it’s just the beginning , gambling profits laundered through corporate entity capitalization , lending institutional fractionalization , funding drug and prostitution , advertising , merchandising jobs and all on a legitimate tax deduction .
    Deontay got tricked .
    We all did

  2. He shouldn’t get the rematch because he waited to long crying because he got his ass beat making up all kinds of excuses. Fury should be allowed to fight Joshua come on now on to the next. Wilder is out the picture for now.

    • Jay ,
      What the hell is the matter with you ? Deontay Wilder is the best heavyweight champion that ever lived without exception
      You are seriously uninformed , can’t you think for yourself ?
      Gloves flopping around all over the place like propellers . Bare knuckles showing through the leather ?
      You have to be a plant or a deceminator of information because nobody’s that thick skulled .

  3. The arbitrator can not force fury to rematch , .fury.and his friends have bleeding eyes and quit .

  4. Seen Deontay Wilder lately ?
    Deontay Wilder will be absolutely avoided at all cost by a j and fury .
    Sensor this you winnie’s .

  5. Wilder’s to scared to get in the ring again with Fury. It looked like Fury was in a completely different weight class snd would most likely cause Wilder some significant injury if it went ahead!

  6. I am a blue eyed white boy . There’s no way Deontay Wilder is ever going to get a fair deal .
    Deontay Wilder is the best heavyweight champion ever living or dead . An canastonian New York international boxing Hall of famer .
    These little snotty nose kids really believe fury , they don’t know their back sides from shinola .
    Deontay Wilder would be lucky if we don’t infect him with the corona virus , fury is afraid for his life , Deontay Wilder could kill him .

  7. I think Wilder should get rematch before Fury fights Joshua. Because he was champ before. And yeah let the winner fight Joshua.

  8. U a clown if u think Wilder don’t get another chance at Fury…. its 1-1… see who wins the third… An the winner fights Joshua

  9. So wilder clearly knocked him out in the first fight?? yet he got his face boxed off when Fury beat the count got up and wiped the floor with him😊 I thought this was a non biased article!! but I see your just another LDBC puppet. Well Im glad to see your boy Wilder back in training for another ass kicking. All you Wilder fans I hope you do get your trilogy match so Fury can beat another dent in that head and retire the fool. Then all the Wilder fans can get laughed at and ridiculed even more than they are now.
