THEY haven’t even sorted out the details of the rematch but that hasn’t stopped promoter Frank Warren claiming Deontay Wilder and Tyson Fury will meet for a THIRD time this summer.

The pair’s first fight, all the way back in December 2018, ended in a draw, while their rematch, which should have happened in 2019, is now rumoured to be happening on February 22, 2020.

Whether that does indeed go ahead remains to be seen, but a third fight, Warren says, is already in the works for next summer.
