Former heavyweight world titleholder Deontay Wilder has officially exercised his right to an immediate third fight with Tyson Fury.

Top Rank chairman Bob Arum, Fury’s co-promoter, told outlets on Sunday that the plan was for the fight to take place July 18 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, the same location that hosted the rematch on Feb. 22.

In the much-hyped sequel, Fury, the lineal champion, claimed Wilder’s WBC heavyweight title after he knocked him down twice,  in the third round with a right hand to the head and with a body shot in the fifth round,  and stopped him in the seventh round when Wilder co-trainer Mark Breland threw in the towel as Fury was pounding Wilder.

Arum said that contractually the fight had to be in Las Vegas, New York or Los Angeles, but that Las Vegas made the most sense for that time of year. Arum said he was not surprised Wilder went through with picking up his option.
