Frank Warren, who is Fury’s promoter told the BBC that they had offered Wilder a multi-million-pound payoff not to trigger the clause but he refused, going gon to say:

“I prefer to go straight to Joshua but that’s the contract,”

“If he insists on the fight, we’re locked into it.”

“It has to be honoured unless we reach some accommodation for him to step aside. We could pay him to step aside if he wants to do that, but that’s his choice.”

“It would be lucrative for him, but I have spoken to his manager and Deontay does believe he has the beating of Tyson, and he can knock him out.”

Should Wilder in fact trigger the clause, then the rematch fight would take place sometime mid-July probably in Las Vegas.

This means that Anthony Joshua will have to beat Kubrat Pulev when he fights him on June 20. Should the clause be triggered it would be the third match between Wilder and Fury.
