Tyson Fury meets Deontay Wilder in the ring for the third time this weekend as the Gypsy King puts his WBC heavyweight title on the line.

The Gypsy King emerged victorious from their second showdown in February 2020 – ah, the good times before the coronavirus pandemic – by stopping the Bronze Bomber in the seventh round following a draw in their first bout in December 2018.

It’s not the fight we were expecting in the aftermath of Fury’s victory as a mouthwatering all-British clash with Anthony Joshua to determine the undisputed heavyweight champion of the world was agreed. Wilder, however, got the courts involved to invoke a rematch clause so we go again for the trilogy fight nobody really wanted.

New to Paddy Power?

It was expected that Fury would finally meet Joshua once this bout was out the way but Oleksandr Usyk put those dreams to bed by deservedly winning all of AJ’s belts in a terrific performance last month.

The Brit will want to cap off the Wilder saga by inflicting another big defeat to guarantee more blockbuster bouts going forward.

He’s set for a hefty bag day from this one and you’ll find information on the Tyson Fury v Deontay Wilder fight purses plus Paddy’s latest odds and undercard details below.
