Tyson Fury and multiple members of his staff have tested positive for COVID-19, and the result means his matchup in the heavyweight division against Deontay Wilder will be postponed.

The fight was due to take place July 24 at T-Mobile Arena (located in Las Vegas, Nevada). The new planned date for the third bout between these two heavyweight sluggers is October 9. The fight will take place at the same venue.

Fury has gotten the upper hand on Wilder once and debatably should have won their first matchup. Many think he was robbed of a victory in their first fight. The second time around, Fury knocked out Wilder to claim the victory.

Fury and Wilder have not stepped in the ring since their last matchup.

Fury currently holds a record of 30-0-1, and Wilder sits with one of 42-1-1.
