Fury Promoter: Wilder Trilogy Will Not Be Held Behind Closed Doors

Frank Warren, who co-promotes WBC heavyweight champion Tyson Fury, has ruled out the possibility of the Deontay Wilder trilogy fight take place behind closed doors.

At the moment the contest is targeted for the tentative date of December 19, possibly in Las Vegas.

The pair first met in December 2018, with the contest ending in a controversial twelve round split draw at Staples Center in Los Angeles.

The rematch took place in February, with Fury stopping Wilder in the seventh round to capture the WBC title at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

Afterwards, Wilder exercised an immediate rematch clause.

The only other scenario is to have a venue or a group of investors offer up a tremendous site fee to secure the rights to the fight.

Warren, along with Fury's other co-promoter Top Rank, are in talks with Premier Boxing Champions, who handle Wilder. Both sides are trying to figure out a financial structure that works for everyone involved.

One possible scenario is having the fight take place in Las Vegas' new Raiders Stadium, where a crowd of 12-20,000 can safely attend with social distancing guidelines in place.

While Warren has been staging events behind closed doors, he doesn't see Fury-Wilder 3 taking place in that type of setting.

"Not a fight of that magnitude," Warren told Good Morning Britain on the prospect of the trilogy being staged behind closed doors.

"Wilder and Fury was the highest grossing [heavyweight] fight to ever take place in Vegas. We just can’t lose that gate. It’s a huge amount of money. We need the gate. Or we come up with a scenario where there is a huge site fee from a territory to take it, and we use it to promote their country.  We are looking at those situations."

[QUOTE=champion4ever;20776161]Are they wearing the same brand of gloves in the trilogy. Two pairs of minted gloves that have never been worn before that are closely examined and inspected at the weigh in, in their dressing rooms, during the ring walk…
