Tyson Fury sets Deontay Wilder deadline for delayed trilogy fight

Tyson Fury is ready to abandon his trilogy fight with Deontay Wilder if a December date cannot be agreed.

The third installment of their heavyweight rivalry was due to take place in July but has been delayed due to the coronavirus crisis.

It was then pencilled in for December 19 in Las Vegas but is set to be moved again.

And Fury insists he wants to fight this year – even if that means fighting behind closed doors in England.

"I'm in very good shape and I'm ready to fight right now but I keep hearing different stories about what's happening in my career," he told talkSPORT.

"I'm supposed to be boxing on December 19 against Deontay Wilder in the trilogy but every two days I hear something different.

"The one thing I want to announce to the world is that I will be fighting in December, whether its Deontay Wilder in Las Vegas or Joe Bloggs in England.

"If they want to put ti back until next year, I want to fight now, next week or the next couple of months.

"I've made it very clear that if we can't do it in America, I want a homecoming in England."

Fury stopped Wilder in their rematch in February following their controversial draw in 2018.

Wilder immediately triggered a clause in his contract for a third meeting before the pandemic ground sport to a halt.

In the meantime, Fury and Anthony Joshua agreed in principle to fight twice in 2021 to establish an undisputed world champion.

Joshua must first take on mandatory challenger Kubrat Pulev in a fight pencilled in for December 12 in London.
