TYSON FURY is not going to face Deontay Wilder next.

It’s a disappointment for boxing fans who enjoyed Fury’s extraordinary if controversial draw with Wilder last December. The two had been in negotiations to rematch for the WBC heavyweight title.

But in a surprise move last week Fury signed a deal US broadcast giant ESPN. Their first fight was on Showtime in America and bringing Wilder to another network, even for a single fight, will complicate proceedings.
