Deontay Wilder ‘Activates’ Trilogy Clause For Tyson Fury Rematch

Tyson Fury is set to fight Deontay Wilder for a third time with the American expected to enact a rematch clause in their world title contract.


The Bronze Bomber was defeated in seven rounds in Las Vegas to hand Fury the WBC heavyweight belt on Sunday morning. After the pair first drew in December 2018, a trilogy clause was inserted into their rematch fight deal that could allow Wilder a chance at redemption.

With the American heading to hospital for checks on a bleeding ear and cut lip, co-manager Shelley Finkel and trainer Jay Deas spoke at the post-fight press conference. Both intimated that Wilder will activate the clause with a time period of 30 days to do so.


Yet that deadline could be extended, according to Fury‘s US promoter Bob Arum. That would allow the former champion time to recover and come up against his rival again next year, rather than race back into a duel this summer.

Should they take to the ring together for a third contest, the pot would tilt in Fury’s favour with the new belt holder due to earn a 60/40 split of the cash in contrast to their 50/50 deal for Sunday morning’s fight.


An extended delay could see Fury take on a fresh opponent in the meantime. But the Gypsy King insisted that Wilder will likely be his next opponent – amid many fans’ calls for a unification fight with Anthony Joshua.

Fury told reporters: “He is a warrior, he will be back, he will be a champion again. But I will say, the king has returned to the top of the throne.”
