The trilogy fight between WBC champion Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder has reportedly been called off, paving the way for the Gypsy King to now face Anthony Joshua in an all-British heavyweight unification fight.

 

Fury was set to face Wilder for the third time on December 19 after winning the American’s WBC heavyweight belt with a stunning TKO victory in February after their first fight ended in a draw last year.

According to Daily Mail, the trilogy fight between the pair has been cancelled with Wilder’srematch clause now expired.

The new development will now speed up preparations for Fury and Joshua, 30, to finally meet with a Wembley 2021 date on the cards for the biggest fight in British boxing history.

Back in March, AJ’s promoter Eddie Hearn confirmed that his star and Fury had agreed to a 50-50 purse split for their mega-money fight.
