❌ Tyson Fury vs Deontay Wilder III will not take place on July 18th as originally planned, Bob Arum has confirmed. He said the trilogy is being pushed back as a result of the coronavirus and could now take place in early October. [@ESPN] pic.twitter.com/OzmPfAFsGZ

Was unlikely but with Bob Arum telling ESPN tonight that Fury v Wilder 3 won't be happening on July 18 and possibly not until October, any slim hopes of Fury v Joshua this year are gone. But obviously bigger things to worry about than a fight at the moment.

“Clearly not,” Arum said of the bout being on July 18. “We don’t even know if the MGM will even be open by then.”
Casinos throughout Las Vegas are closed and the Nevada State Athletic Commission has canceled all combat sports in the state for the time being.
