Wilder vs Fury 3 is on

It seems that Shelly Finkel, co-manager of Wilder, has confirmed that the fight will happen.

Speaking to World Boxing News, he said:

"Right now, the clause for a third fight with Tyson Fury has not been activated yet.

"Deontay intends to activate it. He wants the trilogy.

"I can confirm Deontay will exercise his right to fight Tyson Fury next.

“That’s the fight Deontay wants. It will happen next."

Imminent fight announcement

A media call was sent out by Matchroom Boxing late last night which read:

'Blockbuster fight announced tomorrow.

'Eddie Hearn and Matchroom Boxing USA invite all media to a press conference at 1pm tomorrow afternoon at the Omni Frisco Hotel in Frisco, Texas as Hearn announces a blockbuster fight for April.

 'Both fighters and their teams will be present and available for interview, along with Hearn. 

 'Hearn will also introduce new signing Marc Castro to the media.'

Canelo

It's believed that Canelo Alvarez's next fight will be announced before the end of this week.

Of course with boxing you never believe anything until it's in front of you - but it looks like it will be against Callum Smith on 2nd May in Las Vegas.

The fight would be for the WBA (Super) super-middleweight title.

Wilder vs Fury 2 has been as interesting since the fight ended as it was during it.

The Bronze Bomber now famously claimed that the heavy costume he wore to the ring was the reason he couldn't perform against Fury.

Now, this.
