Just two days ago that Tyson Fury confirmed that he will be fighting Antony Joshua on August 14, it seems there is now a setback as a court ruled that Tyson Fuy must face Deontay Wilder for a third time before Sept 15, and this is throwing his undisputed clash with Anthony Joshua into serious doubt.



The WBC heavyweight champion has been in arbitration with the American for months over a contracted third fight between the pair.

Fury, 32, beat Wilder back in February 2020 to take the WBC title after their first meeting ended in a controversial draw. But in the contract, there was due to be a third clash between the pair.

That was pencilled in for July 2020 but it was delayed by the Covid-19 pandemic.

Then it was pushed back until December but both sides could not agree on a date.

Wilder's team wanted to push it back further into early 2021 but Fury did not want to wait any longer.

Anthony Joshua and Tyson Fury's legal teams are set to work through the night to salvage their summer fight.

The Brits were set to battle it out on August 14 in Saudi Arabia to unify the heavyweight belts the pair hold between them.

But the WBC champion, who took the belt off Deontay Wilder in 2020, has been ordered to complete the third fight as agreed in their initial contract.

And Daily Star Sport understands that the legal teams of both fighters are still in discussions and they're expected to continue into Monday night.
