Bob Arum will explore the option to move Tyson Furys rematch with Deontay Wilder up to the end of the year, rather than early 2020.
Fury and Wilder have agreed terms for their much-anticipated second clash and were expected to go to war again between February and March.

I felt I needed two fights with Tyson Fury in order to really have the public take a look at him and realise what a phenomenal athlete and entertainer he is, but because ESPN did such a magnificent job in helping us promote the Schwarz fight, maybe we can go right now into a Wilder fight.
