WBC heavyweight champion Tyson Fury signed a contract with Deontay Wilder on July 24th.

The 32-year-old Fury seemed ready to finalize the fight for all four world titles against Anthony Joshua in Saudi Arabia.

But the British affair failed when Wilder’s team won the arbitration hearing stating that the American was entitled to a third fight with Fury.

Fury attended Josh Taylor’s win over Jose Ramirez in Las Vegas on Saturday, where he signed his combat contract.

“It’s seriously shattering to pieces,” Fury said. “I’m going to inflict another shoulder injury on him, another biceps injury, another leg injury.

“One lap, you go. I have your soul, your mine, everything. I own you.”

Fury’s contract arrives less than seven days after he appeared on social media saying he agreed to face Joshua in August.

But 24 hours after giving Joshua’s showdown the green light, Wildi’s arbitration plans thwarted Fury’s plans.

Wilder, 35, refused to take the money to step aside and let Fury continue Joshua’s fight, where it would be the turn of all four world heavyweight titles.

Joshua is now expected to defend his IBF, WBA and WBO belts against Ukrainian Oleksandr Usyk in august, with the proclamation of fury, both should still hold world titles later this year.

Fury defeated Wilder to end the reign of WBC champions in Las Vegas in February 2020, 14 months after the pair drew in Los Angeles.

A venue for their third competition has not yet been formally announced, but Fury’s team said the Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas is already reserved for a fight date.

The stadium, completed in 2020, has 65,000 and is home to the NFL franchise Las Vegas Raiders.
