TYSON FURY’S trilogy fight against Deontay Wilder WILL take place this year, according to Bob Arum.
The promoter revealed they have two proposals on the table – but the fight is not expected to place in the UK or America.
Wilder, 34, activated his rematch clause after the Gypsy King, 31, snatched the WBC belt from him at the second time of asking.
The pair were set to square off in July, but the scheduled date was scrapped due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Arum has now revealed the trilogy fight is likely to take place towards the end of the year on neutral grounds.
Speaking to Boxing Scene, he said: “We have proposals from entities in two countries that we’re considering now.
“And when they become more concrete, which will probably be in the next week or two weeks, we’ll run them by the PBC people because, after all, they’re partners in that promotion.
“And hopefully then we’ll make an announcement.
“Right now, we’re looking to do that fight in the fourth quarter of the year and we’re probably gonna be doing it outside of the United States and outside of the United Kingdom.”
Fury has been training four times per day during the lockdown getting ready to “smash Deontay Wilder’s face in again”.
The Gypsy King has confirmed he is not interested in paying the Bronze Bomber to step aside so he can fight Anthony Joshua.
He has outlined his plans to take on Wilder for the third time before facing his fellow Brit twice.
