Tyson Fury vs Deontay Wilder trilogy fight heading to Australia or Macau

Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder's trilogy fight could be held later this year in Macau or Australia rather than Las Vegas, as initially planned.

The heavyweight duo were expected to return for their third bout in America in July but the coronavirus outbreak has postponed the event.

Fury produced a stunning display in the February rematch to claim the WBC belt via seventh-round TKO after the first fight ended in a draw in 2018.

In the wake of his first career defeat, Wilder activated a contract clause to take his rivalry with the Gypsy King to a third fight.

And Fury's co-promoter Bob Arum confirmed he is exploring new locations to host the trilogy bout.

“We are looking elsewhere, at places where they’ve had very little coronavirus," he told talkSPORT's Fight Night. "Where it is not considered to be a problem.

“We are exploring the possible of Macau, China and also in a big venue in Australia, which seems to have the coronavirus under control.

“Our goal from Fury’s standpoint and Wilder’s standpoint is to get that fight on in the fourth quarter before the end of the year.”

Meanwhile, Fury is also in talks over a fight with Anthony Joshua over a unification fight to determine the undisputed heavyweight champion.

Joshua won back his WBA, IBF and WBO titles in December last year after a shock defeat to Andy Ruiz Jr. in June 2019.

And AJ's promoter Eddie Hearn confirmed initial talks over the super-fight have taken place with Fury's management company MTK Global.
