Tyson Fury produced one of the best performances in heavyweight boxing to destroy Deontay Wilder in February and become world champion again.
Fury dominated their rematch in Las Vegas from the first bell, tackling their opponent several times before their corner threw in the towel.
The Gypsy King’s victory led him to face the next British superstar Anthony Joshua.
But this fight was put on the back burner, Wilder invoking his right to a third confrontation with Fury.
Heavyweight rivals will now complete their successful trilogy later this year.
Fury vs Wilder 3: Date and time
Fury will face Wilder for the third time this summer as the bronze bomber takes its revenge clause.
The date and location of the fight has not yet been officially confirmed, but it is scheduled to be held again at MGM Grand on July 18.
Frank Warren, the promoter of Fury, recently revealed to talkSPORT that Wilder had made it clear that he wanted a trilogy fight and that has now been confirmed.
“Yes, he invoked the revenge clause, so that’s what we’re working on,” said Warren.
“It was contracted in the United States. It is part of the contract and is set in stone, unless anyone agrees otherwise.
“But for now, it has to take place in the United States. It will take place in late June / early July – at the latest. “
Rumors circulated last week that Wilder had been offered a cash withdrawal to organize a long-awaited fight between Fury and Joshua.
But Warren said, “No [he was not offered step-aside money], as he only invoked the clause recently, so there was no discussion.
“The situation is that Anthony Joshua will fight [Kubrat] Pulev [on June 20], so you can’t expect Tyson to sit on his back inactive. “
