Tyson Fury vs. Deontay Wilder 3: Fight card, odds, rumors, PPV price, location, date, info for trilogy bout

Fight week is upon us. All eyes of the boxing world have hit Las Vegas for the heavyweight trilogy to reach its conclusion when Tyson Fury faces off with Deontay Wilder for the WBC heavyweight title. Fury earned the strap in the rematch with a devastating knockout. Now, Wilder will look for revenge on Oct. 9 inside the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.

The two were set to meet in July, but Fury and his camp contracted COVID-19 just two weeks before the fight and caused a three-month delay. The fight carries even more relevance after Oleksandr Usyk shocked many in September with a decisive win over Anthony Joshua to claim the unified heavyweight titles.

The saga between these two behemoths has lasted nearly four full years. Fury stepped up to challenge Wilder in 2018 when the American was desperate to make a big fight and Fury was beginning his comeback from alcohol addiction. The “Gypsy King” went on to largely outbox Wilder in the first meeting, but a pair of knockdowns scored by the then champion — including a thunderous one in Round 12 that Fury somehow came back from — was enough to earn a split draw on the judges’ scorecards. Then, in February 2020, Fury emphatically finished Wilder in the seventh round after Wilder’s corner threw in the towel following numerous knockdowns.

Since the loss, Wilder has launched into an elaborate string of conspiracy theories ranging from his elaborate costume wearing out his legs before the fight to Fury having tampered with his gloves for a power advantage to his own trainer having conspired against him in throwing in the towel as Wilder wilted under Fury’s big punches.

Wilder has the most honest chance possible to prove he’s the better man, getting to step in the ring and exchange punches in the summer.

Not to be outdone, but the undercard is one of the most loaded in recent memory for a PPV event. Three bouts fill out this card with all taking place in the heavyweight division. Top prospects meet in the co-main event when Cuban Frank Sanchez takes on Efe Ajagba. Plus, a massive rematch is set for a feature slot when Adam Kownacki looks for revenge against Robert Heleinus after Helenius dealt the Polish powerhouse his first loss in March 2020. And the top American heavyweight prospect is back when Jared Anderson takes on veteran Vladimir Tereshkin.

Below is the complete fight card with the latest odds from Caesars Sportsbook.
