Frank Warren, who together with Top Rank promoted Tyson Fury, admitted there was a possibility of the Deontay Wilder trilogy battle being moved from Las Vegas.
Back in February, Fury stopped Wilder in seven rounds to win the WBC heavyweight title.
After the fight, Wilder used his contractual rights for an immediate rematch.
The trilogy fight was targeted for July 18 in Las Vegas, but the event was postponed due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
A new target date is being discussed for October.
But there is no guarantee that Las Vegas will be the host.
Now Las Vegas is locked and all casinos are closed. There is no guarantee this city is ready to run the event.
“I think it will be a difficult challenge to make Vegas get up and run very fast,” Warren told Evening Standard Sport. “If we can get it in October, I will be very happy.” Let’s hope so, but we have to hope they make the whole city roll back.
“I think we have to be creative among us, everyone involved in the promotion business, we will all try to see what we can do to make it happen. But if that’s the case, where a country is locked up, that’s probably the situation. “
Fury had discussed the idea of retiring after two more fights, but Warren wasn’t very sure about that.
“It’s a funny thing – so many fighters say they will have one more fight or two more fights or ‘I will retire at this age’ then they change their minds. But whatever he [Fury] want to do, I will support him 100 percent because he is the one who entered the ring. This is the decision, “Warren said.
“But one thing about him, he likes training and he likes fighting. I personally don’t think he will but if he does, he does. “
