Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder are set to fight for the third time on July 25 at the T-Mobile Arena in Paradise, Nevada after a US Arbitrator ordered the rematch.
Fury and Wilder with their teams took part in a press conference in Los Angeles on June 15 to promote their fight.
However, it was a very strange press conference as the former WBC heavyweight champion decided to stay quiet for most of the presser and preferred to put his headphones on and drown out the chatter.
Apart from making an opening comment that lasted less than 2 minutes, Wilder choose to let Fury do all the talking. This was very strange for the media involved as they have come to expressed heated exchanges and thrash talking as was the case in the lead up to their first two fights.
Wilder has made some wild accusations against Fury and his camp as well as his former coach. The media were keen to get Wilder to shed more light on those accusations but Wilder decided to clam up. Wilder was happy to let his new coach Malik Scott do the talking on his behalf and duel verbally with the gypsy king.

Tyson Fury decided to take over the presser and said he was happy to play the character on Deontay Wilder and promote the fight since his opponent was not willing to do it. The Gypsy King said that even though Wilder is now working with Malik, he wasn’t going to do anything different in the ring. Fury called Wilder a one trick pony who only has a big right in his arsenal.
Tyson Fury gave a graphic description of what he thinks will happening when they step into the ring for the third time. Fury said his goal was to go up to 300 pounds as he wanted the weight behind him to have that one punch KO power. Fury said his game plan was to come in like an 18 wheeler truck and run right over Wilder and finish him a lot quicker than he did in the second fight.
Fury is a huge betting favorite with William Hill for this fight with odds of 1/3 while Wilder has odds of 12/5, with a draw is at 20/1. We will have a betting preview next month detailing the fighters and the latest odds.
