Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder’s third bout has been given a target date of December 19 with locations “all over the world” being considered.

Wilder activated a clause in his contract with Fury for a third fight, following the latter’s victory earlier this year. If he reigns victorious again in December, Fury will face mandatory challenger Dillian Whyte or stage an all-British affair with Anthony Joshua.

“We are focusing on December 19 and are hoping that, by then, we are back to a nearly normal situation. That may be a 50 per cent capacity,” Top Rank’s Brad Jacobs told Sky Sports News.

“We are looking all over the world, at this point, for the best location for this event. That will be narrowed down and we’ll see where it takes us.”

One idea has been to stage the bout in a 45,000-seat stadium on Boxing Day in Australia, meaning it could potentially be televised in the US and UK on Christmas Day.

Thanks to the coronavirus pandemic, a host of fights have been forced into cancellation across the world of boxing. With lockdown restrictions easing and other sports restarting, promoters are hopeful of the bout taking place this year.

Fury’s UK promoter Frank Warren told Sky Sports: “I think Tyson has got Deontay’s number. I thought he won the first fight. Second fight he won it emphatically. I don’t know what Deontay can bring that’s any different from the previous two fights”.
