Deontay Wilder Excuses

While Wilder has triggered the trilogy clause. It may not be the best decision for him to take that chance just yet, considering the beat down he just received.

Where will Fury vs Wilder 3 take place?
Boxing Journalist Dan Rafael: “Contractually it will be in the United States, but where in the United States remains to be seen,” he told The Sports Bar on talkSPORT.
“Most likely you’d imagine it would be in a big place like New York, LA or Vegas, but it will definitely be in America. They’re obligated to be here.”
Although the contract states the rematch must happen before 18 July, Top Rank chief Bob Arum is hoping to push it back to maybe September or October.
“We would certainly pick the right date, even if it wasn’t in the window that we have in the contract,” he said, explaining he would talk to partner PBC to find the best possible date, with Las Vegas Raiders’ new 70,000 home a possible venue.”
