Fury and Wilder were scheduled to fight on December 19, but the WBC heavyweight champion claimed he pulled out of the fight and contract with Wilder after the bronze bomber’s camp requested a third postponement.
Fury UK promoter Frank Warren suggested that the main factor behind the cancellation was the inability to hold the fight in front of enough fans to make the event financially viable, but he has also made it clear that he intends to have one alternative fight for Fury can be found in the US next weeks.
The 32-year-old Briton was able to fight under the Yarde Arthur card on December 5th. Top promoter Bob Arum suggested five names: Agit Kabayel, Michael Hunter, Efe Ajagba, Oscar Rivas, and Charles Martin.
Arum believes Fury is now under no obligation to fight Wilder again and tells ESPN, “We had a contract but it has expired.”
Wilder’s manager Shelly Finkel was skeptical of Arum’s claim and told the same organization: “He has a right to his opinion, he can think what he wants.”
“Deontay and I want to have the next fight against Fury as planned. We will fight him every day and in every place, ”continued Finkel.
Finkel suggested that Wilder would be the next logical fight for Fury after his fight in December, as he expects Anthony Joshua to lose his next fight with Kubrat Pulev in defense of his IBF title.
“Pulev is going to take Joshua out. Then Wilder is Fury’s best opponent. ”
Joshua and Fury are expected to meet up in 2021, provided the two win their next bouts. Arum spoke about the moneymaking prospects and the importance of Joshua-Fury boxing.
“It is the greatest fight in English boxing history,” and Arum would be delighted to host the event “wherever it is most lucrative to do it.”
