The Planet Sport Boxing Show: Will Fury vs Wilder 3 ever happen?

Mark Smith and Joe Hewlett review another week of chaos in the boxing world and question whether heavyweight boxing will ever get the big fights the fans crave.

The drama continues in the heavyweight division. Tyson Fury's proposed trilogy bout against Deontay Wilder has been postponed following a Covid-19 outbreak in Fury's camp.

Up to 10 people have tested positive for the virus, including Fury himself meaning the fight will not take place on July 24.

Shelly Finkel, Wilder's co-manager, told Planet Sport that if Fury had been fully vaccinated then the fight would have taken place in the summer.

The pair are now expected to fight in October - as long as judge Daniel Weinstein can extend Fury's deadline of defending his WBC title from September 15.

Heavyweight rival Anthony Joshua will be returning in September but there remains no official announcement.

The unified champion is expected to face mandatory challenger Oleksandr Usyk at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium. What is the hold up?

Conor McGregor's rematch with Dustin Poirier ended in brutal circumstances. The Irishman broke his leg towards the end of the first round and was waved off by the doctor.

It is the second successive defeat for McGregor and third in four MMA fights. The 32-year-old has promised to return and face Poirier once again but it appears that his days at elite level in the octagon are numbered.

Lyndon Arthur was in action over the weekend and knocked out Davide Faraci in round nine to set up a rematch against Anthony Yarde.

The pair fought last summer with Arthur earning a surprise split-decision victory over Yarde.

The winner of the fight is in line to fight heavy-hitting Callum Johnson or a world title shot at WBO king Joe Smith Jr.

The Planet Sport Boxing show also previews the showdown between Jermell Charlo and Brian Castano in Texas. The winner will become the first undisputed champion at 154lbs.
