Tyson Fury was jovial, sarcastic and helpful as he worked with the young heavyweights training alongside him at Warriors Boxing Gym in Hollywood, Florida. Just days earlier, the 6-foot-9 “Gypsy King” found out that his dream fight — an undisputed heavyweight championship bout with Anthony Joshua — wasn’t going to happen.
Despite speaking to the Saudi Arabia defense secretary three days prior and on the precipice of a career-high payday, Fury (30-0-1, 21 KOs) now had the realization that he would be back in the ring with Deontay Wilder for a third time.
This wasn’t supposed to happen. Wilder (42-1-1, 41 KOs) had exercised his contractual right to a rematch shortly after the second fight, but for months, Fury, his promoter Bob Arum and Joshua’s promoter Eddie Hearn talked about that scenario as if it was a mere formality. Nothing, they believed, would halt the biggest fight in boxing from taking place in Saudi Arabia in the summer of 2021.
Discussions of step-aside money arose — after all, the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia reportedly was set to dole out an approximately $155 million site fee to deliver the fight. But Fury would have none of it.
“The guy’s a sucker,” Fury said on May 20. “I wouldn’t give him $20,000. I pay in ass [whippings]. And that’s what I’ll give him. I’ll walk right through him. I’m not interested in giving anyone any money. They gotta earn it like I did the hard way: by fighting the best of the best. Then they can earn good money.
“No step-aside money for nobody. … I’d rather give him them big fists right in the face.”
Instead of dwelling on a lost cause, the heavyweight champion — clad in white boxers with a boxing glove pattern and nothing else — set his sights back to the heavy bag in front of him, hammering away while taking turns with the three young fighters. When one didn’t perform the team drill to Fury’s liking, he immediately halted the round and admonished the fighter, demonstrating the proper way to connect with the bag.
An advocate for mental health who has been open about his struggles, Fury wasn’t about to let the disappointment of the arbitrator’s decision affect his training. There was still a dangerous opponent to prepare for, after all.
“Whoever it is in [my] next fight… they’re getting smashed to bits,” Fury said. “I don’t care if it’s King Kong, Godzilla, the great white shark. …. They’re getting knocked out badly as well. Badly damaged. Severely, severely damaged.
“You had a boxing lesson the first time around [with Wilder]; humiliation. He missed with 95% of his punches. Then you had an absolute destruction in the second fight. So I hate to think what he’s going to get the next time. He tells people I cracked his skull last time. I’m going to crack his skull wide open this time. I’m going to have two sets of knuckle dusters this time.”
The road to a third — and perhaps final fight — between Fury and Wilder is one that started in 2016, with many stops and starts along the way leading to Saturday night at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas (9 p.m. ET, ESPN+ PPV).
Here’s how we arrived at this trilogy battle for the WBC and lineal heavyweight championship:The start of a rivalry
Jan. 16, 2016: After Wilder scored a brutal ninth-round knockout of Artur Szpilka in Brooklyn, New York, Fury crashed the ring and challenged Wilder to a fight. A skirmish ensued, setting the table for a future clash. Fury had stunned Wladimir Klitschko to win three heavyweight titles on Nov. 28, 2015, but a fight between Fury and Wilder would not have crowned an undisputed champion since Fury was stripped of the IBF title on Dec. 8, 2015.
July 16, 2016: In his next bout, Wilder defended his title with an eighth-round stoppage of Chris Arreola. He suffered an injury to his right hand and biceps in the win.
Oct. 12, 2016: Fury vacated his two remaining heavyweight titles and announced a hiatus from boxing to seek treatment for his mental health, one month after testing positive for cocaine in two random drug tests. He never defended the unified championship he won from Klitschko.
“I’m unable to defend at this time and I have taken the hard and emotional decision to now officially vacate my treasured world titles and wish the next-in-line contenders all the very best as I now enter another big challenge in my life, which I know, like against Klitschko, I will conquer.”
2017: Wilder stayed busy with a fifth-round stoppage of fringe contender Gerald Washington on Feb. 25 and knocked out Bermane Stiverne on Nov. 4.
Fury was still out of action.
March 3, 2018: Against his stiffest competition yet, Wilder struggled mightily with Luis Ortiz and was badly hurt, but rallied to score a stoppage in Round 10.
April 12, 2018: Fury, who ballooned to nearly 400 pounds during his time away, announced his return to the ring — a June 9 bout against Sefer Seferi. Fury, at 276 pounds, would score a fourth-round TKO over Seferi.
Aug. 18, 2018: Fury, at 258 pounds, made a quick return and defeated Francesco Pianeta by decision.
Sept. 27, 2018: A fight between Wilder and Fury was officially announced for Dec. 1 in Los Angeles, a Showtime PPV. Wilder opened as a slight favorite to win the fight.
Dec. 1, 2018: In one of the best heavyweight bouts in recent memory, Wilder and Fury battled to a disputed split draw. The lasting image of the bout: Fury’s recovery from a 12th-round knockdown.
“That man is a fearsome puncher and I was able to avoid that,” Fury said after the fight. “The world knows I won the fight.”
“I think with two knockdowns, I definitely won the fight,” Wilder said.
Feb. 18, 2019: Fury announced a co-promotional deal with Top Rank. The six-fight deal pays Fury eight figures per fight. Fury and Wilder were in talks for a rematch, but Top Rank’s Bob Arum said the plan is to build Fury into a bigger star before staging a second fight.Wilder’s big decision
March 2019: Lou DiBella, who promoted many PBC events headlined by Wilder, orchestrated the parameters of a deal with DAZN chairman John Skipper that would deliver Wilder to the streaming service on a three-fight deal guaranteed in excess of $100 million.
During a meeting in New York, Wilder, accompanied by co-managers Al Haymon and Shelly Finkel, listened to Skipper’s pitch; DiBella was also present.
The first bout would come against Dominic Breazeale in May and guarantee Wilder $20 million. A victory over Breazeale, a fringe contender, would trigger $80 million in guarantees. The second and third fights would pit Wilder against Joshua for all four belts and pay him $40 million apiece.
DiBella claimed Haymon and Finkel weren’t receptive to the offer. When Skipper said “$120 million was unprecedented guaranteed money,” Haymon and Finkel “jumped all over” him.
Wilder rejected the package, which also included 10 Bomb Squad Promotions shows worth $1 million apiece. He instead pursued a multifight path laid out by Haymon and PBC that paid him $65 million over three fights: $20 million for Breazeale, $20 million for the Ortiz rematch and $25 million for the second Fury bout.
“I didn’t take the deal with DAZN because DAZN roped me in with the Joshua fight, but they didn’t have Joshua [signed], so they couldn’t guarantee a Joshua fight,” Wilder told ESPN on Friday.
“I’ve never been driven because somebody wants to throw money at me. There has to be a purpose and a reason for all things and it has to make sense to us.”
Finkel’s main point of resistance in the DAZN offer was the lack of transparency.
“They would never tell us what the deal was with Joshua,” Finkel told ESPN. “The fight was almost as big as they say they were getting for Fury-Joshua; say it’s $120 million. If we’re getting $40 million that leaves $80 million. Our team asked the DAZN people, ‘What is the deal for Joshua?’ … After we asked a few times [without an answer from Skipper], we got up and left.” After the meeting in New York concluded, DiBella was stopped from entering the vehicle with Wilder, Haymon and Finkel. He was no longer part of Team Wilder.
May 2019: Wilder brutalized Breazeale with a first-round KO on Showtime. He earned more than $20 million for the fight.
Meanwhile, Joshua was set to fight Jarrell “Big Baby” Miller, but the American tested positive for multiple performance-enhancing substances. Andy Ruiz Jr. stepped in as a late replacement. On the night before the Joshua-Ruiz bout, Wilder shocked the masses with an announcement that he signed a contract to fight Fury again, but that he’d first meet Ortiz a second time. Fury would also take a fight in the interim.
“The match is hot now,” Arum said he told Haymon and Finkel. “Let’s do it in the fall.”
However, Haymon had already promised Ortiz a rematch with Wilder after Hearn approached the Cuban with an opportunity to fight Joshua that summer.
June 1, 2019: Joshua was stunned by Andy Ruiz Jr., via seventh-round TKO, and lost three heavyweight titles in one of the biggest upsets in heavyweight boxing history.
Finkel pointed to this result as one of the major flaws in the DAZN offer.
“The way I see it now, that fight [Wilder vs. Joshua] would have never happened because we fought Breazeale and he was fighting Jarrell Miller at the time,” Finkel said Friday. “Miller fell out. He fought Ruiz and lost. And he had the rematch [clause] to get his belts back [if he lost]. So he wouldn’t have even fought us.
“If Deontay knocked him out, as we believe he would, we don’t believe Joshua would have come back for the second Deontay fight right after it.”
The deal with DAZN, however, guaranteed Wilder $80 million for two fights, even if Joshua lost.
June 15, 2019: In the first fight of his new deal with Top Rank, Fury scored a second-round TKO of the unheralded Tom Schwarz in Las Vegas.
Sept. 14, 2019: Fury survived a tremendous scare against Otto Wallin, battling through two nasty cuts over his right eye to score a decision victory and preserve the fight with Wilder.
The wounds required 47 stitches and plastic surgery. With a Wilder win over Ortiz in November, Wilder-Fury 2 is on.
Oct. 31, 2019: Fury briefly stepped away from the boxing ring and into a different squared circle, as he took on Braun Strowman at WWE’s Crown Jewel event in Saudi Arabia. In the lead-up, Fury appeared on WWE programming, and ostensibly, increased his profile along the way.
“I probably am the biggest boxing star in the sport today,” Fury said. “I know I’m the biggest personality in our sport. Crossing over into [WWE], it’s a whole ‘nother lot of fans. It’s only going to make me bigger in my sport.”
Fury, risking injury and the possibility of reopening his recently stitched up cut ahead of another big bout, won the match.
Nov. 23, 2019: Wilder dealt with his own problems in his interim fight, seemingly losing every round to Ortiz before delivering a spectacular knockout of the Cuban boxer in Round 7.
The rematch now just needed a date and location. The revenue split was 50-50 for the December 2018 meeting and the fighters would have the same share in the second bout. The first fight was a PBC promotion but the second encounter would be a co-promotion between Haymon and Arum, two men who rarely conduct business with each other. It was also a rare joint PPV between ESPN and Fox.
The deal contained a rematch clause that the loser must exercise within 30 days of the bout, with 60% of the revenue going to the winner of the second fight.
Dec. 27, 2019: Wilder-Fury 2 was officially announced for Feb. 22 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.
“That was the best you will ever, ever see of him,” Wilder said, referring to the first meeting. “He ain’t getting no better. For me, that wasn’t my best. … Trust me, it’s going to be an easy fight.
“It’s life and death when you get in there with me. Literally. He’s going to get knocked out and that’s going to be the end. I’m going to make sure I end him. Watch.”
Feb. 22, 2020: Fury laid a tremendous beating on Wilder before cornerman Mark Breland threw in the towel in the seventh round.
“The best man won tonight, but my corner threw in the towel and I was ready to go out on my shield,” Wilder said. “I had a lot of things going on heading into this fight. It is what it is, but I make no excuses tonight. I just wish my corner would have let me go out on my shield.”
Feb. 24, 2020: Wilder expressed his displeasure with Breland for stopping the fight and said the former welterweight champion was no longer part of the team.
“For Mark to do it, I was very heartbroken,” Wilder said. “If I say statements like I want to kill a man [in the ring], then I have to abide by those same principles in the ring of him doing the same thing to me. I’d rather die than go out with someone throwing the towel in.
“[Breland] knows these things. It’s been premeditated. I understand what it looks like, but when you have power like me, I am never out of a fight no matter what the circumstances.”
At the time, Wilder also blamed the loss on an elaborate costume he wore during his ring walk, which he claimed weighed more than 40 pounds.
“I paid a severe price because my legs were how they were because of my uniform,” he said. “My uniform was way too heavy. … We had it on for 10 or 15 minutes before we even walked out and then put the helmet on. … It was like a real workout for my legs. When I took it off, I knew immediately that the game had changed.”
March 1, 2020: Wilder officially exercised the rematch clause. Per the contract, the fight must take place within five months of the first bout. Arum announced the third bout would take place July 18 in Las Vegas.Delays, emails and doubt
March 9, 2020: According to the contract, if either fighter claims injury, the bout can be delayed an additional 90 days. Wilder had surgery on his biceps following the bout and informed Fury’s representatives, who didn’t object. The fight would now take place by Oct. 16.
Meanwhile, the sports world essentially shuts down in mid-March, just weeks after Wilder-Fury 2. The second bout generated $16,916,440 in gate receipts — a Nevada record for a heavyweight fight. Live boxing returned in June, but with no live audiences to help drive large guaranteed purses, discussions for the third fight were essentially put on pause.
Summer 2020: With the pandemic still blocking live audiences, the parties, after consulting with ESPN and Fox to find a mutually agreeable PPV date, looked to Dec. 19.
Sept. 28, 2020: To the surprise of Fury, Wilder and their teams, the college football season proceeded, and the ACC Championship was scheduled for Dec. 19 — rendering the date far less appealing for Fury-Wilder 3.
Oct. 1-2, 2020: Top Rank president Todd duBoef and PBC executive Bruce Binkow were the main points of contact throughout the entire process as the sides tried to find a viable date that worked for both ESPN and Fox.
Top Rank sent an email to PBC indicating that ESPN and Fox preferred Feb. 20, 2021 for the rescheduled date. Jan. 30 was listed as another potential date. The email also mentioned the sports schedule (on Fox and ESPN) on every Saturday between Dec. 19 and Feb. 20, but did not provide any dates earlier than Dec. 19. The sides discussed Jan. 30 and Feb. 20 as two possible dates for the rematch.
Oct. 10, 2020: Fury’s representatives inform Team Wilder that “The Gypsy King” was unwilling to push the trilogy fight into 2021. Fury himself said he was not personally aware of Wilder’s proposed dates of Jan. 30 and Feb. 20.
In response, the Wilder side proposed Dec. 26 and Dec. 31. No alternative dates in 2020 or 2021 were offered by Top Rank.
Wilder said he doesn’t recall being informed that Fury was unwilling to fight him in 2021.
“If I did hear it, it went into one ear and out the other,” Wilder told ESPN on Oct. 1. “I knew that he would have to face me or retire. And that was just the bottom line to that. There was no way he could get around me because he signed that contract. That’s just the end of it.”
“They didn’t say in July or August, ‘If we don’t get this fight on in the next 60 days, it’s over because of the contract,'” Finkel said. “They just kept running the contract.”
Oct. 11, 2020: Fury announced that he’s “moved on” from a third bout with Wilder, at least for now, because “Wilder and his team were messing around with the date.”
“They know how it ends, the world knows how it ends: with Wilder on his ass again,” Fury said. “They asked me if I would agree to push it to December. I agreed to Dec. 19. Then they tried to change the date again into next year. … When they tried moving off Dec. 19 and pushing to next year, enough was enough. I’ve moved on.”
Fury hoped to stage a stay-busy fight on Dec. 5 in the U.K. instead, to set himself up for a 2021 fight with Joshua.
Oct. 13, 2020: Three days before the expiration of the injury extension, Top Rank sent a letter to PBC asserting that the rematch clause had expired.
Oct. 14, 2020: Wilder responded to Top Rank that he was “ready, willing and able to participate … on December 19, 26, 31 or any other reasonable date, with or without fans in attendance.”
Finkel said that they mentioned Texas as a possibility (PBC staged Gervonta Davis-Leo Santa Cruz with more than 10,000 fans in attendance on Oct. 31 in San Antonio). However, Top Rank believed they couldn’t charge enough for tickets in Texas, per Finkel.
“Whatever it was, they didn’t want to,” Finkel said. “They didn’t feel the economics were maximized. The feeling to me was there was a large guarantee with Fury and Arum couldn’t meet his guarantee without a site fee.
“As a result, he kept pushing the fight back and then at one point he cancelled it,” Finkel added. “And then used that to try and say the contract’s over, it ended in October. But you’re the one to breach it. … We were willing to fight without a site fee per the agreement. They were not.”
Shortly after, the Fury and Wilder sides engaged in mediation in an attempt to resolve their conflict surrounding the third fight, as the contract called for.
Oct. 31, 2020: Wilder broke his public silence on the drama to finalize a bout with Fury and unleashed with a litany of serious accusations that have never been proven. Among the accusations: that Fury doctored his gloves.
“It’s impossible for a new 10-ounce glove to bend, to keep a smushed-in form or to have loose space,” Wilder said. ” … 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 an egg-weight form. And it left a dent in my face, as well.”
Bob Bennett, the executive director of the Nevada State Athletic Commission, said Wilder’s allegations were “absolutely false.”
“When you were going through your darkest time, I told you that if you got yourself together I would give you a title shot,” Wilder said. “Being a man of my word, I gave you the title shot. When that fight was a draw, I told you that I would give you a rematch. You know I was offered more money to fight Joshua than I was getting to fight you. Again, being a man of my word, I fought you like I said I would.
“In the rematch agreement, there was a rematch clause. Now it is time for you to be a man and honor your word, instead of trying to weasel out of our agreement.”
March 4, 2021: Wilder triggered the dispute resolution clause in the contract, which called for binding arbitration decided by an independent party in an attempt to have his right to a third fight enforced.
