Tyson Fury’s promoter Bob Arum insists he’ll fight Deontay Wilder in Vegas in July and tips Usyk to wreck dream AJ bout

TYSON FURY will fight Deontay Wilder in Las Vegas on July 24, his promoter Bob Arum has confirmed.

The American has thrown a spanner in the works of the Gypsy King’s undisputed clash with Anthony Joshua after a judge said the trilogy must go ahead.

And after insisting Fury would not pay step-aside money, Arum told Boxing Social: “There’s no chance he [Wilder] will step aside.

“Whatever it is, the judge said he had a right to the rematch and we are going to go ahead with it.”

“It is what it is. He will take out his frustration and anger on Wilder and he tells me he will knock Wilder out quicker than he did last time.”

Arum is hoping to reschedule the battle of the Brits for the end of the year.

But he claimed Joshua’s mandatory challenger Oleksandr Usyk could derail the bout with a shock win.

Speaking to IFL TV, he added: “I think Joshua has his hands full with Usyk, I give Joshua a hell of a chance to beat Joshua in that fight.

“Hopefully Tyson comes through and we can do the unification fight in December of this year.”
