Tyson Fury vs Deontay Wilder 3 date, UK start time and fight card

Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder will fight for a third time on July 24 in Las Vegas, with the world heavyweight title on the line once again between the pair.

Fury is the favourite heading into the trilogy bout having brutally stopped Wilder in their rematch early last year, but neither man has fought since then so ring rust could play a factor.

Wilder has fearsome punch power, and almost finished the Gypsy King in their original fight, but the undefeated Brit survived to earn a draw that many felt was a robbery.

Since then, it appeared that they would go their separate ways, with Fury even signing a deal to fight Anthony Joshua for the undisputed title in Saudi Arabia on August 14.

However, that bout fell through when an arbitration case brought forward by Wilder ordered that Fury must fight his old rival one more time before taking any other bout.

Tyson Fury

"I'll tell you how I see this fight, I gave my game plan away before because he's not good enough to do anything about it and I'll do the same again this time.

"Deontay Wilder is a one-trick pony, he's got one punch power, we all know that, great.

"But what I'm going to do to Deontay Wilder this time is I'm going to run him over like I'm an 18-wheeler and he's a human being and I guarantee you he does not go past where he did before.

"Before I only had five or six weeks of practicing what I was going to do to him, this time I've had 18 months, so that is what you're going to see.

"I'm building my weight up, I'm trying to get up to 300 lbs for this fight because I'm looking for a big knockout straight away.

"I don't believe he's mentally, physically or emotionally involved in this fight, and he's doing it for the wrong reasons.

"When people do things for the wrong reasons they wind up getting hurt and we'll see on fight night if I'm a man of my word and if I can run him over quicker than round seven, and I'm sure I will."

Deontay Wilder:

“I hate him, there’s bad blood and there will always be bad blood.

“I want to do more than punish him. Come up with the most brutal thing in your mind and we’ll go with that.

“Hate is always a motivation to destroy, don’t the devil do it every day? Seek, kill and destroy, that’s the devil’s plan.

“I have never felt this way about any opponent before.”
