Tyson Fury’s and Deontay Wilder’s camps are considering dates for their trilogy bout, with Dec. 19 being one of the dates under consideration, Top Rank president Todd duBoef said, according to Steve Kim of ESPN.

“We’ve reserved that date for Allegiant Stadium,” Top Rank chief Bob Arum told Kim. “The (Las Vegas) Raiders are playing on that Thursday (Dec. 17), which is perfect. After the game is over, we put up the ring and so forth. We have a couple of days to do it, and Saturday we have the fight.”

Whether fans will be able to attend the fight by December remains up in the air.

“We understand (the limitations on crowds), and we’re looking at all the different options that relates to if it’s a larger venue with big spacing or if it’s a normal venue,” duBoef said. “We’re taking all that into consideration.”

After the first bout between the heavyweights resulted in a controversial split draw in December 2018, Fury and Wilder entered the ring again in February earlier this year. Fury (30-0-1 with 21 KOs) wound up winning against Wilder (42-1-1 with 41 KOs) via seventh-round TKO.

Now, the trilogy bout could take place almost exactly two years after the first meeting between the heavyweights.
