Top Rank and Premier Boxing Champions have rounded out the main card for the upcoming heavyweight title fight between Deontay Wilder and Tyson Fury in July. Undefeated heavyweight prospects Efe Ajagba and Frank Sanchez will square off in what could be a title eliminator. Also, Robert Helenius and Adam Kownacki will revisit their March 2020 bout that took place just days before the COVID-19 pandemic took hold of the nation. In addition, Jared Anderson will put his undefeated record on the line against undefeated Russian prospect Vladimir Tereshkin. More fights are set to be added in the coming week.
The third fight between Fury and Wilder is set to take place on July 24 in Las Vegas, Nevada. MGM Grand Arena and Allegiant Stadium have emerged as the leading contenders to host the bout. Fury will look to defend his WBC Heavyweight Title against Wilder, whom he knocked out in February 2020. If he is able to emerge with a win, he will set himself up for a fight with Anthony Joshua later this year or early next year. However, a loss would set up a potential fourth fight or a matchup between the winner of Oleksandr Usyk and Joshua bout in September.
We now have the full #FuryWilder3 PPV card on July 24 in Las Vegas (ESPN/FOX PPV), and it’s all heavyweights:
Tyson Fury-Deontay Wilder (TR vs. PBC)
Efe Ajagba-Frank Sanchez (TR vs. PBC)
Robert Helenius-Adam Kownacki (PBC)
Jared Anderson-Vladimir Tereshkin (TR)
