Both the American and the Brit have spoken out about the delay
Deontay Wilder v Tyson Fury is on… although it still hasn’t been officially announced yet.
Promoter Frank Warren confirmed that the bout will take place when he brought the two fighters together in the ring after Fury’s win over Francesco Pianeta on August 18.
However, it has now been over two weeks since that night in Belfast and we are still none the wiser as to when and where the heavyweight title fight will take place.
Now though, both fighters have given an update on what is going on with the bout, you can read what they said below.

When will Deontay Wilder v Tyson Fury be announced?
Deontay Wilder to Boxing Talk: “It’s definitely real and things are about to pop off very, very soon. I think we’re going to have an official announcement in Las Vegas next week.”
Tyson Fury on Instagram: “Training’s going fantastic and the fight’s about to be announced. It’s all done nearly.”
Logic suggests that Wilder’s update will likely be spot on. All of the world’s assembled major boxing media will be in Vegas next week for Canelo Alvarez v Gennady Golovkin II.
While some have speculated that the announcement is being held off so that the promoters can crash Anthony Joshua’s fight week in the lead-up to his bout with Alexander Povetkin on September 22, it actually makes far more sense to get the fight confirmed next week in order for those involved to capitalise on as much media coverage as possible.
