The plan for Episode III in the Fury-Wilder battle is ready,…

first_imgThe third series of the epic match between Tyson Fury and Dionte Wilder may be in neutral territory at Christmas.The news was revealed by promoters from an Australian agency, who admitted that they are already in contact with the two camps at the initiative of the boxers’ representatives.The idea is for match №3 of the heavyweight clash to be in Australia on December 26. The venue has already been specified – the Bankuest Stadium in Sydney, which seats 30,000 spectators in its stands, and more than 10,000 seats will be sold out on the field.The plan is spectacular from a marketing point of view, looking for maximum effect and accessibility for fans around the world. Or at least in the two countries where the fight is expected with the greatest interest. “If we do it according to our plan, Fury and Wilder will enter the ring at around 13.30 on December 26 in Sydney – impresario Dean Lonergan, head of the agency, told the Sydney Morning Herald. – This will mean that in the United States it will be in prime time on Christmas Eve (21.30 on the East Coast and 18.30 on the West Coast), and in the UK – around 2.30 after midnight on the holiday. No one will sleep, but will wait for the show after Christmas Eve with the families. Boxing Day itself – December 26, across the UK and Australia is non-working and traditionally full of sports. What better start than that? “Everything is made up. There’s an additional motif inspired by the Rocky movie – probably the greatest boxing story. In the fourth episode, Rocky Balboa fights Ivan Drago in Russia on Christmas.According to Australians, this is an idea from Fury’s headquarters.The Briton holds the championship belt in the WBC version, which he took in February after a knockout victory over Wilder. The American Bronze Bomber takes advantage of the revenge clause and so we will watch their third battle.The first ended after 12 rounds in a tie.last_img
