There is a major COVID-19 outbreak in Tyson Fury’s camp, and it has now brought doubt that his July 24 heavyweight championship fight with Deontay Wilder will be postponed, according to ESPN.

No official determination has been made yet on whether the fight, that will be held at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, will be postponed.

Fury and Wilder have already competed against each other twice, with the first meeting ending in a draw in 2018 and the other ending with the Gypsy King coming out on top in 2020, scoring two knockdowns himself en route to a seventh-round stoppage after Wilder’s cornerman, Mark Breland, threw in the towel.

After the bout, Wilder exercised his contractual right to a third fight.
