The dates for Fury’s next two fights including Tyson Fury vs Deontay Wilder have been revealed, as per the latest reports.
Tyson Fury, who took on Deontay Wilder at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, California, on the 1st of December 2018, was controversially robbed on points, which set up his re-match with Wilder for the WBC heavyweight title.
However, Fury is first set to take on 30-year-old Jarred Miller before the big bout with Wilder.
There were already rumors floating around the internet that the fight would take place on October 5th of this year in New York, and now, the rumors have been confirmed:
“Firstly, Fury revealed he will trade blows with controversial figure Jarrell Miller on October 5th in New York.”
Jarred Miller was scheduled to fight Anthony Joshua in June 2019, but that fight got cancelled after Miller was tested positive for GW501516, EPO and HGH and got banned for 6 months.
However, in theory, Miller can still box as he can apply for a license in another state (due to not receiving a suspension by the NYSAC), although the fight scheduled won’t be sanctioned by the WBA!
Jarred Miller’s co-promoter Dmitriy Salita was approached by World Boxing News over the date of the fight and he wasn’t going to give away anything:
“Nothing changed since our last conversation regarding Tyson Fury v Jarrell Miller.
“I don’t have any additional news regarding this.”
Meanwhile, the date for the Deontay Wilder fight has been confirmed too:
” Secondly, according to the Top Rank puncher, the follow-up installment with Wilder is happening on February 22nd. The clash is slated for New York or Las Vegas.”

The Tyson Fury vs Deontay Wilder re-match is going to be one of the most anticipated Boxing fight in the recent years.
There’s a general feeling that the Brit was ahead on points against the 33-year-old American, but was robbed by the judges as the end of the fight.
