Deontay Wilder to fight Tyson Fury in July after refusing to step aside from the third bout says Bob Arum

Published

on

Tyson Fury was set to fight Anthony Joshua in August; however, arbitration hearing ruled Deontay Wilder must fight Fury again this summer; Bob Arum said Wilder wanted “preposterous” money to step aside, and that fight will happen in July; Fury: “I’m going to crack his skull wide open

Arum, who promotes Fury in the US, says a rematch between the Briton and Wilder is now set to take place in Las Vegas on July 24.

However, an arbitration hearing found this week that Wilder had a contractual right to another rematch against Fury, and that it must take place by the middle of September.

The pair were slated to fight for a third time last year, but the Covid pandemic, as well as an injury sustained by Wilder, saw Fury move on to the planned Joshua showdown.

And Arum told the Boxing Social, “No, there’s no chance that he [Wilder] will step aside. He doesn’t want to step aside, except for a totally preposterous number.

“The judge said he had a right to a rematch and we’re going to go ahead with it.”

Joshua’s promoter Eddie Hearn said he was initially under the impression the arbitration hearing would not pose a threat to his man’s chances of fighting Fury this summer.

Arum insisted he was also taken aback by the ruling, saying it was “totally unexpected and I think it was the wrong decision”.

He added: “I believe that the law and the facts were on our side and that Fury could go ahead and fight Joshua. The arbitrator saw it differently.

“When you get knocked down as we did, pick yourself up, and Tyson will do that. We’ll fight Wilder on July 24 in Las Vegas.”

Fury’s first fight with Wilder in December 2018 ended in a draw, but he stopped the ‘Bronze Bomber’ in their second bout 14 months later to claim the WBC title.

Discussing Fury’s reaction to the news that he would have to face Wilder again, Arum said: “Tyson wasn’t very happy.

“But he’s going to take out his frustration and anger on Wilder, and he tells me he’s going to knock Wilder out quicker this time.”

Joshua – who holds the IBF, WBO and WBA heavyweight belts – labelled Fury a “fraud” on Twitter after it became clear their August meeting was in danger.

He could now face the WBO’s mandatory challenger Oleksandr Usyk, who Hearn called Joshua’s “plan B”.

Should Joshua and Fury come through their potential fights with Usyk and Wilder unscathed, Arum is sure they will finally take each other on, saying: “Yes, absolutely.

Published

In a post on social media on Thursday, Ake said his father Moise passed away later that evening.

“I know you’re always with me, you will always be in my heart and this one was for you, dad,” he wrote on Instagram.

“The past few weeks have been the toughest of my life, my dad has been very ill and there was no more treatment possible. I was lucky to have a lot of support from my fiancé, family and friends.

“Yesterday after a difficult time I scored my first Champions League goal, and only a few minutes after he passed away peacefully with my mum and brother by his side.

“Maybe it was meant to be, watching me play always made him proud and happy.”

Ake, who began his career at Chelsea, has made 16 appearances for Manchester City since joining the club from Bournemouth for £40m in the summer of 2020.

He also has 22 caps for the Netherlands since making his international debut in 2017.

Liverpool show their best and worst in thrilling win over AC Milan as Virgil van Dijk rested by Jurgen Klopp

Published

on

Rafael Leao, disorientated amid the onslaught, could be seen passing the ball straight to Trent Alexander-Arnold in his own box. Ismael Bennacer, terrified as Andrew Robertson snapped at his heels, was spotted dribbling at full speed in the wrong direction.

“We started incredibly well,” said Jurgen Klopp afterward. It was an understatement. By the time their opener arrived, Alexander-Arnold’s cross-shot bouncing in off Fikayo Tomori in the ninth minute, Liverpool could have been out of sight already.

Milan kept trying to play out from the back and Liverpool kept swarming all over them. Stefano Pioli’s side barely made it out of their own defensive third let alone their half. “Super, super, super intense,” added Klopp in his description of that opening period.

Gradually, though, the tempo began to ease off and soon Milan was able to gain a foothold in the game.

Liverpool had been utterly dominant but the contest was turned on its head when Ante Rebic and Brahim Diaz scored in the space of just 110 seconds shortly before the break.

To most, the turnaround came from nowhere.

Klopp, though, had seen it coming.

“We got punished in the last few minutes before half-time but it started earlier,” he explained. “We got a bit carried away by our own football. We didn’t keep it simple anymore, offensively, and we were not well organized anymore defensively.

For the first, Diaz was given too much space to find Alexis Saelemaekers, who had eluded Naby Keita too easily between the lines. Joe Gomez then allowed Rebic to run off him, while Matip and Alexander-Arnold were too far away to be of any help.

Liverpool’s defense was in disarray and it was the same story for Milan’s second. Alexander-Arnold and Fabinho were too slow in tracking Leao, Matip missed his interception and suddenly Liverpool were behind. “Not nice,” was how Klopp described it afterwards.

As Milan celebrated each goal, the camera panned to Virgil van Dijk on the Liverpool bench. The Dutchman was conspicuous by his absence in those error-strewn passages of play.
