Heavyweight champion Tyson Fury has tested positive for COVID-19, according to a source close to the matter, and his third fight with Deontay Wilder will be rescheduled till the autumn. 
As its organisers of the prestigious heavyweight trifecta are still negotiating the new date for the most desired heavyweight battle of the season, the source talked to The Associated Press on the speaking anonymously Thursday. 
Fury (30-0-1, 21 KOs) and Wilder (42-1-1, 41 KOs) were set to fight on July 24 at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas to round up their intense game of bouts. The English champion, Tyson Fury, was thought to be the best pound-for-pound fighter in the world.
Fury, the greatest heavyweight in the world, as well as numerous members of his entourage, tested positive. Fury had been in the United States finishing up his preparatory work for the fight, but he'll most certainly come back home to recover.
 For much of August and September, the professional wrestling schedule is packed, thus Fury-Wilder III will most likely take place in October.
Because of an adjudication court decided in Wilder's favor, Fury reluctantly accepted to the rematch instead of a far unification fight with fellow British champion Anthony Joshua.
