"So everybody has to take a step back".

Fury then shocked the boxing world by overwhelming Wilder with a dominant performance in last month's rematch, battering an out-of-sorts Wilder in a one-sided victory.

Dillian Whyte is the mandatory challenger for the WBC belt and the governing body has said that he will receive his world title fight in February 2021, which could further delay a fight between Joshua and Fury.

Fury vs. Wilder 3 is going happen, and both sides want that fight to be the next bout on each man's schedule.

"Al and his people are in touch with us all the time on this", Arum said per ESPN.

However, as Arum mentioned, there's no certainty as to when the MGM Grand hotel, or any of the Vegas resorts will be allowed to reopen anytime soon.

Although DeVito was definitely the crowd favorite, other actors submitted coronavirus videos for the NY governor to use. According to experts, people over 60 and those who are immunocompromised continue to be the most at risk.

As Arum notes, Fury has a legion of loyal fans that will travel in from overseas for fights, and right now, even if the casinos in Las Vegas were to reopen by July, there's no guarantee travel restrictions would be lifted.

Tyson Fury's trilogy clash with Deontay Wilder has been postponed until October because of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. As soon as Fury beat Wilder in the States, talks immediately began over a potential unification bout in London against Anthony Joshua. How are you going to sell tickets?

And Arum confirmed to ESPN that all parties involved in getting the third fight on the table are working through their process. "It's absolutely ridiculous to say that the fight starts when the British can't even get there".

Promoter, Arum claimed boxing to be no different from the rest of the world calling on everybody to take a step back. However, any hopes of that happened have been diminished following the outbreak of the Coronavirus, which has impacted all of the major sporting competitions around the world, including Serie A, National Basketball Association and the Olympic Games. That means that the unification fight may not be taking place until the summer of 2021 at the very earliest.
