A resolution is imminent in Deontay Wilder v Tyson Fury arbitration case!
After months and months of trash talking and head-scratching accusations, the arbitration case between heavyweight rivals WBC champion Tyson Fury (30-0-1, 21KOs) and former WBC champion Deontay Wilder (42-1-1, 41KOs) appears to be coming to an end.
According to Mike Coppinger, a resolution in the case is imminent. As you all know by now, team Wilder initiated mediation in hopes of securing a third fight with Fury. This all started with Fury’s announcement in October that he was moving on from a third fight with Wilder, neglecting his contractual obligation. Fury won their February 2020 rematch by a dominant seventh round stoppage.
The loss did not sit well with Wilder. He would go on to hurl reputation-damaging accusations towards his former longtime trainer Mark Breland and Tyson Fury. The Joshua v Fury talks are currently ongoing with a deal inching closer and closer. The decision on whether or not that fight will happen hinges on the decision of judge Daniel Weinstein. One possibility is he determines that Wilder is owed his coveted third fight with Fury. Alternatively, Fury may Owe Wilder damages for not fulfilling his contractual obligation. There is also a possibility that Fury could simply get off scot-free and move on to his highly anticipated undisputed showdown with unified champion Anthony Joshua.
