Boxing news: Frank Warren confirms Deontay Wilder vs Tyson Fury 3 will take place in summer 2020, after February rematch

Deontay Wilder will fight Tyson Fury for a third time before the end of next year, Frank Warren exclusively told talkSPORT.com.

The rival heavyweights’ first fight, in December 2018, ended in a controversial draw, but their rematch was put on hold when Fury opted out and made a co-promotional agreement with Top Rank.

Now however, it is known Wilder and Fury have signed a fresh deal to meet again in February 2020, with a two-way rematch clause guaranteeing the trilogy whatever happens.

While February 22 is the mooted date for the rematch, it was previously unclear when the third fight would take place.

But Warren told talkSPORT.com: “Tyson is going to be back in the ring with Wilder on February 22.

“And they will fight again, irrespective of who wins, in the summer.

“So that, at the moment, is all tied up.”

The promoter made the revelation when discussing what the future holds for his young heavyweight star Daniel Dubois.

Britain’s 22-year-old 13-0 (12 KOs) sensation is due to face Kyotaro Fujimoto on Saturday and will then plot out a big 2020.

Warren continued: “What we’ve gotta do, and what Daniel’s gotta do, is to get him into a situation where he gets into a number one spot.

“Become a mandatory challenger to whoever’s left standing by hopefully the end of next year, and then be challenging for a world title at the end of next year.”

To help prepare for his second fight against the heavy hitting Wilder, Anthony Joshua has offered to spar with his fellow Brit, an offer Fury is keen to take up.

“When I beat Wilder I will fight you AJ, no problem. I would love to have you in camp, mush,” he said via Instagram.

“Really, really love to have you in camp working out for this fight and give Wilder a proper beating.

“I hope you mean it because I’d love to have you in training camp with me.

“Thanks very much and well done in your last fight, congratulations.”
