Bob Arum Explains Wilder vs. Fury Litigation
The promoter explained what the litigation he faces from the team of Deontay Wilder to force the third fight against Tyson fury.
“One thing is to file a claim and a second thing is to be successful,” he argues. Arum. “I believe that Wilder You no longer have rights for a third fight and therefore your claim will be denied. But I can’t help but think otherwise and lead him to litigation.
“The contract says that the rights of Wilder sold out at the end of October and I really think the contract clearly shows that Wilder he has no right to claim a third fight. Wilder he underwent surgery, but that was fixed in the contract, a 90-day delay from the date of the proposed rematch in July, and that’s over. “
“But I think we will have a resolution on December 12. Yes Joshua gets lost and then is not available, I’ll talk to Tyson on if he wants to fight with Wilder for the third time ».
