Tyson Fury says he has “moved on” from facing Deontay Wilder for a third time in December and will instead be “coming home” to fight.
Fury, 32, won the WBC world heavyweight title from Wilder in February following a draw between the pair in 2018.
Their third bout was slated for July and later aimed at October before plans emerged for a December fight in the US.
“I agreed to 19 December,” Fury said. “Then they tried to change the date again into next year.”
Fury told The Athletic: “I’ve been training. I’m ready. When they tried moving off 19 December and pushing to next year, enough was enough. I’ve moved on.”
The British heavyweight has since tweeted he was “coming home” and pointed to December for his next fight. He has not competed in the UK since August 2018 with his last four bouts taking place in the US.
Reports in the US suggest the date by which a third fight had to be agreed has now lapsed but that Wilder still hopes to find an agreement. (BBC)
