Tyson Fury vs Deontay Wilder could be OFF due to Covid-19 outbreak

Tyson Fury's rematch clash against Deontay Wilder has been thrown into doubt after a member of Fury's camp tested positive for Covid-19.

The pair were expected to meet for a third duel on July 24 in Las Vegas to end their heavyweight rivalry.

However, ESPN has claimed the fight, which was set to take place at the T-Mobile Arena, could be pushed back to September due to the outbreak. Fury is not believed to be the person to have tested positive.

Fury has been training in America ahead of his return alongside SugarHill Steward with the winner in line to face Anthony Joshua or Oleksandr Usyk.

As it stands, Top Rank have said the fight will go ahead and will continue to monitor the health of Fury.

Wilder can add this to his conspiracy theories

Wilder has made a list of accusations towards Fury going into the proposed summer showdown and the latest news about a member of Fury's team testing positive will no doubt be another thing to Wilder's list of accusations and complaints.

The American has been vocal about Fury and branded him a cheat in their previous two fights.

"What you did is what my people deal with all the time, someone cheating them from providing their greatness into the world," Wilder said in a social media post.

"I saw in the first fight when Ricky Hatton was pulling down your glove to put your first in the improper position. Y'all tried the same method the second time, but this time you scratched flesh out of my ears which caused my ears to bleed.

"It's impossible for a brand new 10 ounce glove to keep a smooshed in form or to have loose space. I highly believe you put something hard in your glove. Something the size and the shape of an egg weight.

"It's the reason why the side of my face swelled up in the egg weight form and it left a dent in my face as well. But you still couldn't keep this king down.

"In the end, it took a crab in a bucket referee and a disloyal trainer to throw the towel in just to stop me… Your payback is coming," Wilder added.
