Tyson Fury’s promoter Bob Arum says the arbitrator for the Fury vs Deontay Wilder case is expected to decide by May. There could be a “claim for damages” the Bronze Bombers part. but Arum doesn’t see the Anthony Joshua vs. Fury fight being stopped from happening in June
“That is in arbitration, and the arbitrator will decide,” said Bob Arum to Barbershop Conversations when asked about what’s happening with Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder. “No, really and truly, nobody anticipates that there’ll be an injunction. At worst, there might be a claim for damages. I think it was scheduled that we’d finally get a determination sometime in May. I can’t go into that.
Fury walked away from a fight that would have likely paid him tens of millions against Wilder. “The Gypsy King” (30-0-1, 21 KOs) was under contract to give former WBC heavyweight champion Wilder (42-1-1, 41 KOs) a rematch last year after beating him by a seventh-round knockout in February 2020.
