Deontay Wilder vs Tyson Fury 3 FIght Preview
“I’ve been as low as any man can go, and as high as any man can go. I’ve been to the brink, I’ve overcome.”
That one sentence from one of the best heavyweight fighters in this generation, when speaking with The Guardian in 2018, is a fair broad-view of the man that is Tyson Fury. A 2020 article from Business Insider tells the story of a heavyweight champion who was an underdog from birth, born premature and weighing just one pound. Not given much of a chance for survival, he was a fighter, true to his namesake “Tyson” after Mike Tyson, one of the greatest heavyweights of all time who was on top of the world when Fury was born in 1988.
From a long line of English travelers/gypsies who were bare-knuckle fighters, Fury started boxing at the age of 14 years old and turned professional in 2008. He won his first seven fights before the scheduled finish. In 2009, the 6’9” Fury won the British Boxing Board of Control (BBBoC) English Heavyweight title, adding the Commonwealth (British Empire) Heavyweight title a few years later as his undefeated streak continued to grow to 15 consecutive victories in 2011.

Premier Boxing Champions (PBC) and Fox Sports are producing what should be the conclusive third chapter between top-contending heavyweights Deontay Wilder and Tyson Fury – Wilder vs Fury 3.
Fury’s Retirement and Rebound
It was a rough year in 2016 when Fury’s old habits caught up with him, and he lost his boxing license. Relinquishing his titles in order to step away to deal with his drug abuse and mental health issues through rehab, Fury was away from the sport for over two years. “I had a good few nights out,” he was quoted saying in The Guardian’s 2018 article, “having a good time after boxing since I was six years old.” In his absence, Anthony Joshua rose to claim Fury’s mantle, and Deontay Wilder took possession of the WBC World Heavyweight title that Fury hadn’t gathered.
Fury returned in 2018 on a mission to reclaim what was his but had to earn the chance. A fight with Joshua to take his titles back wasn’t going to happen overnight, and so Fury quickly dispensed Sefer Seferi and Francesco Pianeta. The victories put him in contention with Wilder for the WBC heavyweight title in December of 2018.
The contract for Wilder vs Fury 2 had a clause that allowed the loser of the match to get a rematch within an agreed-upon amount of time. The COVID-19 pandemic swept the world just weeks after the 2020 match, however, making scheduling a rematch difficult. Fury’s camp saw the deadline for the rematch pass and started working on a fight with Joshua. Wilder, however, claimed that the pandemic’s impact should allow for a longer window to schedule the bout.
With the two sides at an impasse, they went to arbitration where the official ruled in favor of Wilder, though to be scheduled no later than September 2021. Fury vs Wilder 3 was scheduled for July 2021, but COVID had infiltrated the Fury camp, preventing the fight from moving forward. The date was moved to this weekend, Saturday, October 9th.

The bout went the distance, but in the end, Fury was declared the winner by unanimous decision, claiming the WBA, WBO, IB, and IBO heavyweight titles, becoming the lineal heavyweight world champion in the process – a title he holds to this day.
