Tyson Fury Tests Positive For COVID-19, Trilogy Bout Against Deontay Wilder Postponed

Just days before the biggest trilogy in combat sports between Conor McGregor and Dustin Poirier is set to go down, a massive triology bout of its own has been postponed.

According to ESPN's Dan Rafael, current WBC and WBO heavyweight champion Tyson Fury has tested positive for COVID-19 which has subsequently caused his trilogy bout with Deontay Wilder to be postponed.

Per the report, Fury is experiencing symptoms of the virus and hasn't been able to train in the meantime.

At the end of 2018, the pair fought to split-draw which forced the rematch in early-2020, where Fury thoroughly dominated en-route to a seventh-round TKO victory for the 32-year old Englishman.

Neither Fury nor Wilder have competed since their February 2020 rematch.
