Tyson is currently scheduled to fight Anthony Joshua August 14 in Saudi Arabia. He earned a draw in his first fight against Wilder and then destroyed him in the second bout.

The most likely outcome is that Wilder is paid money to not pursue this situation further and allow the Fury/Joshua fight to proceed as planned.

It might be a painful pill to swallow, but Wilder just has to be paid to go away at this point. Fury is 1-0-1 against him, and there’s no reason for a third fight.

Fury beat the living hell out of him the second time around. We have no reason to believe it’ll be any different a third time around.

Plus, the world wants to watch Fury/Joshua.

Give the people what we want! Pay Wilder off and prepare for August 14. It’s going to be a lit time in Saudi Arabia!
