The heavyweight giants fought to a disputed draw back in December and could be set for a rematch as soon as February
Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder will have a trilogy of fights, Bob Arum has confirmed.
The Top Rank CEO and founder is now co-promoting the Gypsy King alongside Frank Warren and confirmed a rematch will happen.
Wilder and Fury fought to a disputed draw back in December which left fight fans around the world clamouring for more.
Although the rematch is still yet to happen and both men have got their separate ways for the moment, the Bronze Bomber insisted 2020 would be the year they settle the score.
And Arum has himself insisted now that the two heavyweights will join the pantheon of greats and have a trilogy.
“But no jumping. Anything can happen to Fury, although I don’t think it will, that happened to Anthony Joshua.”
Asked whether a third fight could be on the cards Wilder and Fury, Arum unequivocally replied: “Yes, I can assure you of yes.
“There are a lot of good heavyweights who have had trilogies. This would be a trilogy.”
After their draw in December, both men have a chance to right the wrongs from the first fight. Wilder felt his two knockdowns were enough to win the fight, while Fury thought he outboxed the American.

And when asked if potentially a fourth fight would be required, Arum answered: “We’ve had great trilogies in the past. Ali v Frazier. Ali v Norton. They were all trilogies, not four fights.”
Going further, Arum revealed a purse split agreement is in place for the final encounter in the saga.
“The percentages will change, as in the winner would get more on that third fight, than the loser. It’s all based on who wins the second fight.”
