Tyson Fury vs Deontay Wilder could be the first fight at the Allegiant Stadium
- The trilogy bout is yet to find a venue to be hosted
- Wilder triggered the rematch clause after his loss to Fury
- New state-of-the-art Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas is one potential option
- Mental Health and Psychosocial considerations during the COVID-19 pandemic
Tyson Fury versus Deontay Wilder could be held in the new state-of-the-art Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas.
While the date and place are yet to be determined, reports indicate that the fight could be set at the brand new stadium in Las Vegas.
December 19 has been penciled as a probable date for the highly anticipated heavyweight clash.
Tyson Fury captured the WBC Heavyweight title when he outboxed and outclassed Wilder before stopping him in the seventh round.
The Bronze Bomber from Alabama would then trigger the rematch clause in their contract to set up the third clash.
The Allegiant Stadium is a 10-level domed building on a 64-acre plot to the west of Mandalay Bay.
While some areas of the stadium are still under construction, the arena is relatively set to host events.
Several countries have been touted as possible destinations for the fight with Australia, New Zealand and Saudi Arabia been fronted.
Tyson Fury’s co-promoter Bob Arum has however mentioned that the grand stadium can serve as a viable spot to host the fight.
Whenever they fight, I think it’s going to be a huge type of attraction, and to do it as the first fight at Allegiant Stadium would be something really special.
By December 19, people will say, “Yeah, maybe by then, the worst is over and they can do it”.
If I start saying September, I open up a can of worms. … If we have to do [Vasyl Lomachenko vs Teofimo Lopez] in the bubble, then we’ll do it in the bubble.
If we can get spectators, maybe at the MGM or at Allegaint or whatever, we’ll keep everybody in the bubble and get spectators.
