Former heavyweight world titleholder Deontay Wilder has officially exercised his right to an immediate third fight with Tyson Fury. After being dominated in the much hyped sequel fight, Wilder took to instagram on Sunday to announce he would be exercising his right to a third fight tentatively on July 18th at MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.
Top Rank chairman Bob Arum told ESPN
“We will sit down and go through all the details for the fight, We realized that date was the favorite of both ESPN and Fox because it comes at a dead time in sports, which is good for the fight, It’s after the basketball playoffs, baseball is in the middle of the season and there’s no football. It’s the ideal time. The hotel, MGM Grand, also believes it to be an ideal time.”
