Fury Wilder 2 Purse Bid Postponed

The World Boxing Council (WBC)  has officially postponed the purse bid for the heavyweight championship rematch between champion Deontay Wilder (40-0-1, 39KOs) and Tyson Fury (27-0-1, 19KOs) until February 12th.


Originally, in Mid-January the WBC had February 5th as the deadline.



President Mauricio Sulaiman stated , “The WBC has extended the free negotiation period for Deontay Wilder vs. Tyson Fury as both parties requested time to finalize a deal,”


So by next Tuesday we should have a finalized deal or a purse bid result for the anticipated WBC heavyweight rematch.
