Tyson Fury will complete his trilogy with Deontay Wilder this summer in America after the beaten former champion exercised his right to an immediate rematch.
Fury’s UK promoter Warren confirmed the Bronze Bomber, 34, has decided to take up the opportunity to challenge for the WBC title he lost to Fury at the end of February.
Warren told talkSPORT: “Yes, he’s invoked the rematch clause so that is what we are working towards. It’s contracted to take place in the States. That is in the contract and set in stone unless anyone agrees differently.
“But at the moment it is due to take place in the US. It will take place by the end of June/early July – no later than that.”
ESPN report the third bout between the heavyweight rivals is being targeted for July 18, back at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.
It was there that Wilder was dominated by Fury, 31, twice being floored before his assistant trainer Mark Breland through in the towel.
Despite the one-sided beating the Bronze Bomber astonishingly insisted the 45lb ring walk costume he wore before the fight “weakened” his legs and affected his performance.
But the Alabaman – who was fortunate to earn a draw against Fury in their first fight – has vowed to win back his WBC title in the trilogy bout, which is obligated to again take place in America.
