Tyson Fury might not fight Deontay Wilder in next fight, co-promoter Frank Warren says


Tyson Fury's co-promoter, Frank Warren, doubts the WBC world heavyweight champion will now face Deontay Wilder in his next fight.


Fury was initially expected to face Wilder in a third encounter between the pair at Allegiant Stadium, the home of the NFL's Las Vegas Raiders, on Dec. 19.


But with no crowd because of restrictions due to the coronavirus pandemic, promoters and broadcasters have yet to announce plans for the trilogy fight.


Wilder's manager, Shelly Finkel, told ESPN's Steve Kim on Saturday that Warren is "incorrect," and that they have a contract for a fight.


One option for Fury would be to box an alternative opponent -- and possibly without the titles on the line -- at the Royal Albert Hall in London on Dec. 5, when Warren will stage a show featuring English light heavyweight Anthony Yarde and Lyndon Arthur.


Warren also said rival world junior welterweight champions Josh Taylor (WBA-IBF) of Scotland and Jose Ramirez (WBC-WBO) of the United States will face each other next.
