Fury had been scheduled to fight Anthony Joshua on August 14 in Saudi Arabia – a highly anticipated confrontation between the two British fighters.
This fight has now been placed on hold as Fury must now face ‘The Bronze Bomber’ on 24 July in Las Vegas.
“Just thrilled. It was just phenomenal.” Shelly Finkel – Wilder’s co-manager – told Sky Sports. “It was a great, great feeling. There’s a parable about the dog with the bone. The big bone was Saudi Arabia and you end up with nothing.”
Wilder took to Instagram to express his eagerness for the fight, posting a work out video alongside the caption: “Revenge is the sweetest JOY next to getting p***. – 2pac.”

“He wants this more than anything and he’s putting in the time and training, and all that’s needed to get it” Finkel added with Sky Sports.
“If he can’t beat Fury the way he’s planned to do it now, then he just can’t beat the guy, but I believe he will. I’ve seen things before, and I’ve seen the way it is now.”
Fury appears equally assured of success, sharing his own work out video to Twitter with the caption: “Strong like bull, I’m gonna bulldozer @BronzeBomber this time.”
